Marvel has slated the “Guardians of the Galaxy” sequel for July 28, 2017, the studio announced on Saturday at Comic-Con.
James Gunn will return to write and direct the followup. Gunn and Chris Pratt announced the news in a mock video sent in from London that closed off this evening’s Marvel panel.
The sequel was teased in the end credits of the “Guardians of the Galaxy,” which hits theaters next Friday.
The Disney-owned studio has already dated a slew of new untitled films through 2019.
