Filmmaker James Gunn held a Q&A on Twitter Friday to answer questions about Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2.
One major detail that was revealed is the official press release from Marvel and Disney should be expected in the next few weeks. This should reveal the villain for the film and additional casting.
Gunn also confirmed that Star Lords father and the main villain of the film have been cast. Kurt Russel was the only name attached to the role of Star Lord’s dad. Adam Warlock and Magnus area potential villains for the film. This could be one of those plots where Warlock starts off as a villain and then redeems himself by the end of the film. Gunn is a fan of the source material created by Dan Abnett and Andy Lanning.
Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 begins production in February with an expected released date of May 5, 2017.
The film is written and directed by James Gunn and stars Bradley Cooper, Chris Pratt, Dave Bautista, Michael Rooker, Vin Diesel, Zoe Saldana, and Pom Klem
