Guardians of the Galaxy 2 movie release date revealed! The first of Marvel’s scheduled films until 2019 has finally been named, and yes even before the first GOTG film arrives in theaters the studio has already planned and announced a sequel to it.
During the successful San Diego Comic-Con festivities, director James Gunn and lead star Chris Pratt has announced the Guardians of the Galaxy 2 movie release date on July 28, 2017.
Director and Writer James Gunn confirmed the news through Twitter saying, “Yes, I’m writing and directing the sequel to #GuardiansoftheGalaxy …
But first go see the first one out next week!” While fans are expected to hear more Marvel movie revelations, only one film was revealed and it was the sequel to the highly anticipated galactic superhero themed film, Guardians of the Galaxy.
The famous movie critic Rotten Tomatoes gave GOTG 100 percent rating despite the film not being released in theaters yet.
Disney’s big boss Bob Iger previously hinted his intentions of making Guardians of the Galaxy a franchise saying: “This August 1st, we’re looking forward to introducing the world to more fantastic Marvel storytelling,” Iger stated, “with a great cast of new characters in ‘Guardians of the Galaxy’, which we screened last week and we believe it has strong franchise potential.” Disney’s chairman added that the recent screening of the film was a rather huge success and it will certainly add to the studio’s box office hit movies including “Captain America: The Winter Soldier” and “Thor: The Dark World.” “Guardians Of The Galaxy” will definitely bring Marvel into an entirely new realm as it is focused on the different galaxies from space unlike previous Marvel superhero films.
“That’s a whole other Marvel realm or universe in terms of where it takes place,” Iger explained, “the characters that populate it and the stories that you can tell for those characters.
So, I think, I’m not going to predict that we’ve got another Avengers on our hands, but that’s certainly the goal.” In addition, lead star Chris Pratt who plays Star-Lord a human who is fond of stealing high-valuable artifacts and fooling around with as many alien women as he can, expresses his hopes in reprising his role for more Marvel Cinematic Universe’s films.
“I hope people really like it, and I hope I get to play that character for a very long time,” Pratt admitted to MTV’s Josh Horowitz at the Movie Awards.
“I think Marvel’s been very smart about projecting into the future and what they’re putting on their slate.
It’s based on what people like, so we’ll put this movie out there and see how people react to it.
Who knows?” Guardians of the Galaxy 2 movie release date is scheduled on July 28, 2017, while the first film is already soaring high in the box office.
