James Gunn Explains Why Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 For Title



Kevin Feige recently let it slip that the title for the Guardians of the Galaxy sequel is Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2.

James Gunn recently spoke about the title on on Facebook offering reasons as to why they went with “Vol. 2” as the official title.

Yes, the official title of the sequel to Guardians of the Galaxy is Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2.

Kevin Feige recently let the title slip while doing Ant-Man press, which I’m really happy about because God knows I’ve let more than one thing slip accidentally while chattering away on this FB page.

Also, hats off to some intrepid fans who figured out the title a couple of days after I posted the cover page. More than one person guessed “Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2” – I wanted so badly to give you props at the time, but knew I had to wait.

For Kevin to mess up. Haha.


Yeah, I came up with a LOT of titles for Vol. 2. But because “Guardians of the Galaxy” is already so wordy, it seemed strange to add another bunch of words after it. I liked Vol. 2 the best, so that’s what I stuck on the cover of the screenplay – and, fortunately, the guys liked it.

Gunn also offered on Facebook that he isn’t sure if Guardians of the Galaxy 2 will be at the D23 Expo in August, and that Marvel hasn’t placed any storyline obligations on him for the movie.

While answering questions in regards to more of Nebula/Thanos, and the possibility of any of the Vell (i.e Mar-Vell) family being a part of Guardians of the Galaxy 2, Gunn responded with:


“Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2” has a May 5, 2017 release.
