Guardians Of The Galaxy 2: What We Know So Far
Star-Lordís DadOther than the full tracklist for "Awesome Mix, Vol. 2," the biggest cliffhanger left in Guardians of the Galaxy is the identity of Peter Quillís father. While the hero always thought that he was 100% human, the reality is that he is actually 50% alien. Whoever Star-Lordís dad is, heís part of a powerful, ancient race, and is described by Peterís mom as looking like an angel (though Yondu does call him a "jackass.") James Gunn has already said that the search for Star-Lordís dad will play a big part in Guardians of the Galaxy 2, and that they will be deviating from the comics (sorry JíSon of Spartax, you are NOT the father). That being said, Gunn has also noted that the big reveal of who the dad is wonít be what the entire movie rests on. What direction will they go in? Weíll have to wait and see.
Adam WarlockThose who watched the first Guardians of the Galaxy (and the first post-credits sequence in Thor: The Dark World, for that matter), know that the lair of The Collector included something that looked a hell of a lot like Adam Warlockís cocoon from Marvel Comics. Many took this as a suggestion that the character is going to make his live-action debut in Guardians of the Galaxy 2 - but it doesnít look like thatís going to happen. James Gunn has said that the cocoon definitely looks a hell of a lot like Warlockís, but that its inclusion was merely based on the fact that he thought it looked cool. Itís true this doesnít completely rule out Adam Warlock for the 2017 blockbuster, but it doesnít look great.
The AvengersAs you may know, Marvel Studios has a bit of a history when it comes to bringing their various franchise characters together. They amazed the world when they did it with Joss Whedonís The Avengers back in 2012, and they did it again with Whedonís The Avengers: Age of Ultron. As a result, itís long been expected that the company will eventually team up the earthbound heroes with those from Guardians of the GalaxyÖ but you shouldnít expect that to happen any time soon. James Gunn has gone on the record many times saying that he doesnít have an extreme desire to see the two worlds immediately start to collide, and has added that he doesnít see Guardians of the Galaxy 2 as a roadmap to get his characters to meet up with Iron Man, Thor, Captain America and the rest in The Avengers: Infinity War.
