Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 Director James Gunn dropped a major hint about the movie’s opening sequence on his Twitter handle. He is one of the most active filmmakers on social networks. And judging by fans’ reactions about his latest reveal, fans are once again fascinated with his relaxed mindset towards addressing concerns with blunt honesty.

It seems like the pressure of living up to the Marvel Cinematic Universe standards does not faze Gunn. He even shared snippets of the sequel production process. The director did not hesitate to give a piece of the action, keeping the public updated with the movie’s progress. He even went as far as answering a fan’s question on Twitter.

Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 will have a ‘cooler’ opening sequence

A fan on Twitter inquired about the opening credits of the sequel. A Twitter user who goes by the handler @alancqstark asked if the sequel’s opening credits will be as cool as the first film. In the exchange, first reported by Comic Book, Gunn enthusiastically replied that the sequel’s opening credits will be cooler than the first one. The first Guardians of the Galaxy film had an epic opening sequence but Gunn is positive that Vol. 2 will take it to another level.

Gunn’s tweet implied that the opening titles of the sequel will evolve from the first film. However, the Vol. 2 will try something new without neglecting the ‘cool’ part of the sequence. The director gained support for his transparency about the film. Some critics however are wary that while Gunn is building the hype for the film, he is running the threat of setting fans up for disappointment. The first Guardians of the Galaxy had an unforgettable opening title sequence in its own right. Vol. 2 will need to surpass the first film. However, fans believe that Gunn can provide something and indeed will come up with something fresh and amazing.

Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2: Will the sequel’s opening credits surpass the first?

Flickering Myth noted that the opening credits of the first film revealed the tone of the film. The opening sequence showed scenes which depicted Chris Pratt in action as Star-Lord. The scene was partly set to Redbone’s “Come And Get Your Love.” The opening scenes also showed Star-Lord dancing to the tune as part of his “Awesome Mix Vol. 1” while he browsed the landscapes of the planet Morag.

The first Guardians of the Galaxy’s opening sequence succeeded due to the fact that it accomplished numerous things by just showing the credits. It introduced and developed Star-Lord’s ambitious yet playful nature as a character. The introduction also revealed the movie’s special mix of dynamic, transcendent settings set against a timeless rock and pop soundtrack. It is uncertain whether Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 will also incorporate Star-Lord’s remarkable mixes and top the expectation already set by the first film.
