We are one step closer to Guardians of the Galaxy 2.
James Gunn posted earlier on Facebook that he just completed the first draft script of the sequel.
Gunn teased an image of the title page mentioning it took him almost two months to complete.
Phew. After 48 days straight without a day off, the the first draft ofÂ â€ª#â€ŽGotG2Â â€¬is done. I'm sorry to all my friends and family who I have ignored.
No specifics are known about the movie other than Gunn previously stating it will be about family and look to explain the identity of Star-Lord's father, which will be different than the comic book version. Gunn also said the movie will take deeper look at who the characters are, and we'll get to know more about Gamora, Nebula and Yondu.
I'm also guessing Gunn will be applying that deeper approach to the villain of the movie. I know Gunn said something to the effect he wished he could have done more with Ronan, so hopefully whoever - or whatever - is the big bad this time out will be fully explored.
There has also been talk of two female characters joining the Guardians - maybe Mantis and Moondragon?
Fans are also hoping for an Adam Warlock appearance, and many online are speculating Starhawk may very well be Star-Lord's father.
Gunn also previously let it be known that Marvel said his approach to Guardians of the Galaxy 2 is risky, which is rather interesting, as it means Gunn isn't going to simply copy what he did with the first movie.
It will also be interesting to see what direction Guardians of the Galaxy 2 takes: Will it lead to other Marvel Cosmic movies? Or will Marvel bring it down to Earth connecting it to the Avengers: Infinity War movies?
Guardians of the Galaxy 2 is due out May 5, 2017.
