We have yet to see the full potential of Marvel's upcoming sci-fi action film Guardians of the Galaxy, but it looks like a sequel won't be too far behind. According to JoBlo, an inside source says Guardians of the Galaxy 2 will be coming out during Marvel's Phase 3 lineup. The sequel is said to be aimed for release on May 6th, 2016, which would fill the first of two previously announced release dates the studio has yet to reveal titles for.
Having seen some great looking early footage from the film at Comic-Con I knew there would be a sequel at some point. The crowd went wild! Marvel seems to know what they are doing, and I think audience is going to love what they are doing with this intergalactic team of misfits.
There's no information on if James Gunn will be back to direct the sequel, but it would be great if he does. I seriously can't wait for you to see some footage from the film if you haven't already seen it. I'm excited to see more footage, and we can only hope that the final product will blow audiences' minds.
Take it as a rumor, but remember… Marvel Studios' President Kevin Feige has said they have plans for Marvel films through 2021, which means anything is possible.
Guardians of the Galaxy is set to be released on August 1st, 2014.
