  • Guardians of the Galaxy will just be “supporting players” in Avengers: Infinity War

So is this the very best or highest grossing movie out of Marvel studios?

Industry forecasts for Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2, the latest comic book adaptation from Disney's Marvel Studios, have the film hauling in anywhere from $125 million to nearly $160 million for its first weekend in domestic theaters.

Ayesha reveals she is creating the flawless weapon to get the Guardians of the Galaxy the next time they meet, which is a birthing pod she calls "Adam". "I had seen the Rock do his thing with a giant blaster in ", which is my friend James Wan's film, and I chose to one-up that with Zoe Saldana grabbing a gun that's eight times as big as the Rock's gun". Comic readers wand to see more and more of the characters that they love make the jump from the page to the big screen.

Marvel's Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 is in cinemas now. She feels things, you know, by touching people. While that may or may not be true, we definitely get a step closer to seeing Warlock in all his glory in this one.

We also meet Mantis, a unusual insect-like alien, and Ayesha, a high priestess, who hires the Guardians to protect her planet.

Fans of the comics will know Adam is Adam Warlock, a ideal being with super powers.

We had known for some time that Sylvester Stallone was going to be playing Stakar Ogord in this film.

Now, Yondu is a big part of Marvel's vast storytelling empire (the character is listed as appearing in next year's Avengers: Infinity War, though Rooker's lips are sealed).

Zoe Saldana and Director of Photography Henry Braham are pictured on the set of "Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2".

Guardians filmmaker James Gunn chatted with USA Today about the five post-credits scenes stuffed into the swashbuckling summer blockbuster, including a mention of one clip that never made it into the bonus scene festivities.

This is probably the most interesting one because of the way that it came together.

Now, it has been confirmed that Stan Lee's character has a stated objective. Still, Star Lord is not (my son's) favorite super hero.

It's a roller coaster of a ride with much more comedy and one-liners than the first.

Luckily for us, director James Gunn himself has provided some answers. I'd like to assume that Gunn is attached to the Guardians on a personal level more than anything he has ever worked on before.

"She blew me away", he said. That's just because I was expecting one thing and got another.

And all of this helps the movie better establish a backstory for characters who didn't get much attention in the previous film - Michael Rooker's Yondu and Karen Gillan's Nebula.
