James Gunn Returns for Guardians of The Galaxy Sequel Which Gets Release Date

Posted July 27th, 2014 at 10:00 am


Guardians of the Galaxy isn’t even out yet but plans are in motion for the sequel. Marvel has slotted it into their July 28, 2017 date which is one of nine they’ve planted their flag on all the way into 2019. This was the main news out of the panel at Comic-Con which included no new film announcements but rocked the hall with a teaser trailer for Avengers: Age of Ultron.

Given that reviews so far have been phenomenal – it’s still at an enthusiastic 100% on Rotten Tomatoes – it should come as little surprise that director James Gunn is being brought back to helm and write the sequel with all the stars attached.

Guardians of the Galaxy 2 will land in “Phase Three” and follow Age of Ultron, Captain America 3, and two other films that have yet to be announced but could be Thor 3 and Doctor Strange.
