A few days ago it was reported the title for Guardians of the Galaxy 2 is Guardians 3000.

Guardians 3000 is a current Marvel comic book from the writer who inspired the original movie, Dan Abnett, so it seemed a possibility.

Now, however, director James Gunn has taken to Twitter to shoot down the rumor.

"BTW - I'm getting a lot of questions - there is NO truth to the rumor GotG2 is called Guardians 3000. I don't know where @prodweek got that," Gunn tweeted.

It was thought that if Guardians 3000 was the title to the sequel, that Gunn may have been featuring the original Guardians, as Abnett's comic centers on the characters from the future. There is a mystery surrounding the father of Star-Lord, which will be different for the movie than the comic, with Cosmic fans speculating Quill's father might be Starhawk.

"Guardians of the Galaxy 2" has a May 5, 2017 release.
