Peter Quill aka Star-Lord (Chris Pratt), Gamora (Zoe Saldana), Drax (Dave Bautista), Rocket (Bradley Cooper) and Groot (Vin Diesel) are back with an exciting bang in Guardians of the Galaxy Volume 2, set for release on May 5, 2017. The Marvel Universe is doing very well with Doctor Strange 2016 and at it’s conclusion we got a bit of a teaser with the Doctor’s (Benedict Cumberbatch) interaction with Thor for the forthcoming Thor: Ragnarok. We also see that Mark Ruffalo as Bruce Banner aka The Hulk returns after some absense in Captain America: Civil War. Can’t wait to see a Black Panther 2018 trailer as well, with Chadwick Boseman as T’Challa aka Black Panther, Lupita Nyong’o as Nakia and Michael B Jordan as Erik Killmonger, say’s me rubbing my hands. We get the fine thespian work of Forest Whitaker as Zuri and Martin Freeman‘s return as Everett K Ross. All about timing from the Marvel folks, a couple a year, with loads of anticipation.
Chris Pratt is such a charmer, in fact all are fab. The formula of classic rock soundtrack with so much amazing action and comic exchange makes these Marvel excursions like the best comfort food ever. Like warm cherry pie with vanilla ice cream. We’ll see the return of some characters with also some new folks (or aliens) entering the picture, Sylvester Stallone being one of those. Get ready for a summer hit, something we can pine away over during these cold winter months.
