Marvel has confirmed that the Guardians Of The Galaxy will indeed return for a sequel.
Ahead of the film’s release date, the filmmakers announced that they would be working on Guardians Of The Galaxy 2 for 28 July 2017. Excitingly, writer-director James Gunn Tweeted that he’ll be returning to write and direct.
Gunn had previously confirmed that he’d be involved with a Guardians sequel as soon as it was greenlit, and with the overwhelmingly positive critical reaction to the film we certainly had our fingers crossed for a follow-up, but it’s great to get confirmation.
Guardians Of The Galaxy is due in cinemas 31 July 2014. To read our behind the scenes feature, pick up the new SciFiNow, read our review here and find out more about the comics that inspired the film with new digital magazine Uncanny Comics.
