Yep, it just opened TODAY (woohoo!), but Disney’s Guardians of the Galaxy already received the green light for a follow up film! It shouldn’t come as much of a surprise since every Marvel film since the start of Phase One has seen success and sequels, but the official news pushes the film with a different story arc from The Avengers closer to a comic-universe aligning of stars (and stories).
Chris Pratt (Star Lord) and director James Gunn confirmed the news last week during the Comic-Con extravaganza. You can look for Guardians of the Galaxy 2 to be released July 28, 2017. That’s three years from now, but should give you plenty of time to go watch the movie that as of right now holds an 88% rating on RottenTomatoes.com! That’s a high mark for a Marvel film!
Go see Guardians of the Galaxy in theaters starting today!
