Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 currently stands at the top as the most anticipated comic book title in 2017. The movie’s first teaser trailer was released last December and managed to receive overall appraisal from the audience and media.

“Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2” is set to release this year in May. Thanks to James Gunn, the expectation for the film continues to grow among fans.

Recently, USA Today was able to talk to James Gunn about “Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2.” The sequel movie was added to the list of “The most must-see films of 2017.”

Fans are excited for Gunn’s movie as it will introduce new Marvel characters. So far, it has been revealed that Mantis (played by Pom Klementieff) and Ego (played by Kurt Russell) are included in the movie.

James Gunn Talks Ego And Star-Lord

The character Ego the Living Planet has set everyone’s anticipation levels high after he was revealed to be the biological father of Star Lord (Chris Pratt). During USA Today’s chat with James Gunn, the director spoke about the father-son relationship in “Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2.”

James Gunn said, “To let somebody love you is a very difficult thing, especially when you’re damaged goods. And all of the Guardians are damaged goods.”

“It runs the gamut of emotions for him, wanting to understand why his father wasn’t around to quickly idolizing him and ultimately learning the reality of the relationship and comparing the man who sired him to the man who raised him.”

Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 Is An Emotional Movie

Earlier, it was reported by Gunn that “Guardian of the Galaxy Vol. 2” will be “more emotional” for fans. It looks like the loving relationship between Ego and Star-Lord will be funny as well as touching.

Cast member Chris Pratt was also a victim to the emotional content in “Guardian of the Galaxy Vol. 2.” The actor revealed that the script of the movie made him cry.

“Guardian of the Galaxy Vol. 2” is set release on April 25, 2017. Fans can expect Marvel to release more promo clips and images as part of the film’s promotion.
