‘Guardians of the Galaxy’ Sequel Gets Title

Guardians of the Galaxy

The “Guardians of the Galaxy” sequel has gotten a fitting title.

“Yes, the official title for the @Guardians sequel is GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY VOL. 2,” writer-director James Gunn tweeted on Monday.

The title, which is more common for comicbooks than comicbook films, likely comes from the famous mixtape “Awesome Mix Vol. 1,” which the Star-Lord (Chris Pratt) listens to and that played a pivotal role in the original film.

Gunn confirmed the news after Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige let the title slip prematurely during an interview with Collider at a press junket for “Ant-Man.” Filming is set to begin next year in London.

“We start shooting ‘Guardians of the Galaxy Volume 2’ in February-March 2016,” Feige told the site.

Marvel/Disney’s “Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2” hits theaters on May 5, 2017. The first film hauled in a whopping $774 million worldwide.

    I’m not one to go to the movies or watch many I happened to fall upon guardian of the galaxy. Chris Pratt had me at the opening dance. I hadn’t head of chris before this movie and couldn’t have imagined anyone else pulling it off. All actors where amazing. The soundtrack was fantastic I don’t think you could have picked better songs I hope in the second volume will be keeping that music instead of all the stuff they play today and can’t understand a word they sing. The older music must be doing something right considering all the remakes they do. Counting down the months till this comes out. can’t wait!!!!!

    Given the importance of the Chinese market, why not “Part 两个”?

    But I wanted a boring, unimaginative jumble of nouns and verbs after the colon. The only reason Amazing Spiderman 2 flopped was because it wasn’t titled Amazing Spiders: Curse of the Darkness.
