Guardians of the Galaxy 2 is in process! Courtesy of James Gunn, the writer and director behind the first film, we have learned a few details about the upcoming sequel that everyone can’t wait for.
Despite being close-lipped on the plot for the sequel, Gunn revealed that the sequel will begin shooting next February at Pinewood Atlanta Studios. The filming location is a new one for the franchise. The first film filmed in London with several scenes taking place though out locations in the city. Currently, Captain America: Civil War is filming at the same Atlanta studio where Ant-Man also recently wrapped principal photography.
According to Gunn, the script is currently in progress and the film treatment for the sequel has already been sent over to Marvel. Though Gunn did not reveal any plot details for the sequel. However, he did say that Karen Gillan would reprise her role as Nebula, the arch nemesis and adopted sister of Gamora (Zoe Saldana) for an appearance in the film. He was also confident that her appearance in Guardians of the Galaxy 2 would not require her to shave her head like she did for the first film.
Guardians of the Galaxy 2 has a premiere date for May 5, 2017.
