James Gunn Has Already Begun Writing Third Guardians of the Galaxy

Check out the Guardians of the Galaxy 2 Empire Strikes Back poster after the jump.

Yesterday, it was announced that a new preview for Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 would be shown in front of last night's episode of Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. The deviousness of the first Guardiansgets delegated to Rocket, whose attempts at crude humor quickly turn irritating; it's as though, nervous that the presence of a talking raccoon would keep adults away, Gunn needed to make sure the cuddly critter got the filthiest lines. This might come across as a disappointment to fans expecting a setup to upcoming films - "Avengers: Infinity War" and "Thor: Ragnarok", but keeping the proceedings self-contained to this ragtag bunch of anti-heroes is hardly a detrimental factor.

Baby Groot was born at the end of the first "Guardians of the Galaxy" film, and the extraterrestrial, treelike creature is a tiny, scene-stealing superhero in "Vol. 2".

It's probably all under wraps until Avengers 4 is out in 2019 - but Gunn has teased that it will start some kind of seismic shift in the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

Set to the backdrop of "Awesome Mixtape #2, ' Marvel's Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 continues the team's adventures as they traverse the outer reaches of the cosmos".

Probably everyone from Guardians 2.

We don't know exactly, but we can assume the main players survive the next couple of Avengers films thanks to something Gunn wrote in that same revelatory Facebook post: "So, yes, I'm returning to write and direct Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3". I think he still mourns over the family he lost, but I think he really feels much more content. But Vol. 2, which is mildly enjoyable while instantly forgettable, makes a gamble that we want to learn even more about Quill's Earth past.

When will Guardians of the Galaxy 3 be released? It's not too surprising then that writer & director James Gunn tries to regurgitate the lightning-in-a-bottle success of the first film, by replicating some of the comedic elements that worked for it. As an extra promotion through RealD, 558 theaters will offer a 3D double feature starting with the first "Guardians" film and leading into a 7 p.m. screening of the sequel.

Voiced by Vin Diesel, the computer-generated character can only say one thing - "I am Groot" - but it means everything, and his intergalactic comrades always seem to understand his (often foul-mouthed) message.

He's a big deal in the "cosmic" part of the Marvel universe, where he's both a good and bad guy. See a full explainer below.
