We don’t know a lot yet about James Gunn’s follow-up to Guardians Of The Galaxy – even its name has been under the radar. Until now.
While speaking to Collider, Marvel president Kevin Feige accidentally (on purpose) revealed the title of the sequel – Guardians Of The Galaxy: Volume 2 – prompting Gunn to elaborate on Twitter:
“Yes, the official title of the sequel to Guardians of the Galaxy is Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2.
Kevin Feige recently let the title slip while doing Ant-Man press, which I’m really happy about because God knows I’ve let more than one thing slip accidentally while chattering away on this FB page.
Also, hats off to some intrepid fans who figured out the title a couple of days after I posted the cover page. More than one person guessed “Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2” – I wanted so badly to give you props at the time, but knew I had to wait.
For Kevin to mess up. Haha.
PS ANT-MAN PREMIERE TONIGHT AND I AM STOKED!”
Guardians Of The Galaxy: Volume 2 will be released in cinemas on 28 April 2017. For more on the comics that inspired the film, pick up the 100 All-Time Greatest Comi: Revised Edition now.
