Update: James Gunn released the Guardians of the Galaxy 2 trailer. Watch here.


James Gunn is at the Brazil Comic-Con for Guardians of the Galaxy 2.

Gunn went live on Facebook just prior to the start of the panel and announced he will be releasing something on his Facebook page.

James Gunn also posted that he autographed a fan's leg who came back an hour with it tattooed!

The Guardians of the Galaxy 2 panel saw James Gunn confirm Sylvester Stallone and reveal footage.


James Gunn says Guardians of the Galaxy 2 will "more action, more adventure, more emotion, more heart, more humor." They showed the scene that takes place after the Ravgers have mutinied; features Rocket, Baby Groot and Yondu "bustin' loose."

James Gunn praises his cast, crew, the Marvel comics and Marvel Studios.

Gunn says Dave Bautista as Drax will blow everyone away.

Guardians of the Galaxy 2 will feature lots more of Karen Gillan as Nebula and a whole other side of Michael Rooker's Yondu.

Guardians of the Galaxy 2 is "much about fathers & sons, but also sisters." Again says lots of Nebula and Gamora.

James Gunn is super excited about having Snake Plissken (Kurt Russell) and John Rambo (Sylvester Stallone) in Guardians of the Galaxy 2.

Gunn compares the challenges to keeping Rocket grounded in the first movie to Kurt Russell's Ego in the second. James found the story and heart for Ego that gives him ground.
