• A general plot synopsis: Ayesha recruits the Guardians to destroy a gigantic tentacled beast, then orders that the Guardians themselves be destroyed after they double-cross her.

• Details about The Ravagers: There’s also Chris Sullivan as Taserface, who leads outlaw gang The Ravagers in mutiny against Yondu, outraged that he hasn’t punished Star-Lord for switching that purple Infinity Stone for a Troll doll.

• Some details about Mantis from Pom Klementieff: Drax chooses to take under his wing new Guardian Mantis, an antennaed empathy. “Mantis has never hung out with people before. She grew up on this planet almost on her own, so she discovers everything for the first time. She’s wide-eyed and child-like and weird sometimes. That’s why she has this connection with Drax: they’re both a little off.”

Other notes:

•  Ego’s planet is said to be the biggest visual effect of all time.
• “Family” is a buzzword thrown around a lot.
• Rocket, Nebula and Yondu’s backstories are all gonna be explored.
