No, it’s not news on the mythical trailer that has still not been released, but we do have an interesting piece of news that James Gunn himself revealed during a Facebook Q & A live chat.
Here’s what he had to say:
“I think we’ve given out the people that are in Guardians 2 that we’re going to give out so far, uh, which is we know Baby Groot is in the movie and that he’s not an adult. We know that the movie takes place 2 months after the first movie ends. We know that Ego is the father of Peter Quill, that he’s an ancient being. He’s played by Kurt Russell. We know, what else do we know, we know that Mantis is in the movie. We know that Yondu and Nebula have more important roles in the film. We know that Sylvester Stallone is playing someone in the film. We don’t know who. So those are kind of the things that we know that are out there right now, and as time goes on we’ll let you know a little bit more.”
A lot of that we already knew, but it is the fact that the movie takes place a mere two months after the events of the first film, and we are going to assume before Captain America: Civil War, that caught our attention.
If the Guardians are going to make an appearance in Avengers Infinity War, the timeline of their movie may prove to be very important.
