The big news at Comic-Con’s Marvel panel yesterday was that Guardians of the Galaxy is set for a sequel, even before it has hit theaters on July 28th.
Word on the street has it that the film is pretty awesome, so the news shouldn’t come as a surprise. Director James Gunn and actor Chris Pratt, who stars as lead character Star Lord, shared the news with fans on Saturday as they attended the Marvel Studios’ Comic-Con presentation in San Diego, California.
The follow-up film is scheduled for release on July 28, 2017.
Pratt, who had to bulk up for the role, recently told the New York Post he would jump at the chance to reprise his part as Peter Quill, a mercenary who has to team up with a group of misfits to secure his freedom and save the world after stealing a mysterious orb.
He said, “I’d be thrilled to do (a sequel). I’m just going to sit back and eat chicken and do bench presses and wait by the phone.”
The movie also co-stars Zoe Saldana, Vin Diesel and Bradley Cooper.
