Drip… drip… drip... That’s the sound of James Gunn steadily feeding us teeny-tiny bits of info on Guardians Of The Galaxy Vol. 2, with the director now revealing that the sequel won’t spend any time dealing with the Infinity Stones. “There will be no Infinity Stones in Vol. 2”, he said via Facebook, keeping things nicely to the point!
If you cast your mind back to the original film, the whole plot revolved around Star Lord and chums keeping hold of the mysterious Orb, which turned out to contain the Power Stone, one of the six gems coveted by the MCU’s ultimate Big Bad, Thanos. However, it seems like that business will be left to Avengers: Infinity War, freeing up the Guardians for an adventure of their own.
All of which kind of makes sense, given that Gunn has frequently stressed that the sequel will stand alone from the bigger Avengers v Thanos smackdown. Naturally, we still don’t have a huge amount to go on when it comes to working out what the plot will actually focus on, although we do know that Star Lord’s father and a host of marauding Ravagers will have a big part to play.
Directed by Gunn and co-starring Chris Pratt, Zoe Saldana and Dave Bautista, Guardians Of The Galaxy Vol. 2 will open in the UK on 28 April 2017.
