SEQUEL SPECULATION: The Future Of The Nova Corps In GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY 2 (Editorial)


By Cameron Logan
A lot was said about the Nova Corps in the first Guardians of the Galaxy film. Many were concerned that the Nova Corps were basically "beat cops," and didn't have the superpowers that they have in the comics. However, the ending of the first film may have set the Nova Corps up for a more "powerful" role in the sequel. Hit the jump for my theories...

SEQUEL SPECULATION: Star-lord's Father In GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY 2 (Editorial)


By Chris S.
So I’m sure if you are reading this, you have seen Guardians of the Galaxy by now, right? If you have seen it, go to Step 2. If you haven't seen it, go to Step 1.

Step 1: I would like you to close your laptop, shut down your desktop, or whatever else you may be reading this on, drive to your local theater, and buy a ticket to the next showtime. Seriously, why have you not seen it yet?

Step 2: Continue reading and enjoy my speculation/prediction to who Star Lord’s father will be in Guardians of the Galaxy 2.

Hopefully by now, you will have seen the movie. In which case, you will now know that they have dropped a few hints regarding Star Lord’s father. I have seen some speculation that perhaps Warlock will be his father, or Starfox, or Captain Marvel, or “blah blah blah”. I really don’t see any of these characters as Peter’s dad. So I’m locking in my bets now. Based on the hints we got from the movie, I doubt they will be using J’son as his father. It seems this is going to be a big part of the plot for the sequel. All the hints that were dropped in the movie fit one character perfectly, in my opinion at least, and that character is: Starhawk.

PICS: Check Out Some Rocket And Groot Concept Art From GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY

by Jackson Sze
A lot goes in to making a film. However, before the cameras start rolling, before the actors start reciting their lines, a group of concept artists are hard at work designing the look of the film. A few of the concept artists behind Guardians of the Galaxy have released some of their art for the film online. It's amazing how much talent these people have, and you can definitely tell that their art played a large part in shaping the film. Check out the rest of the pictures after the jump (and order 'The Art of Guardians of the Galaxy' here).

SEQUEL: Who Would YOU Like To See In GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY 2? (Editorial)



By Dan Payne
Yes, I know that the excitement of the CURRENT movie still hasn't worn off. Hell, *I* still can't stop talking about it. But that doesn't mean we aren't already eagerly awaiting the sequel. Especially with James Gunn's statement that he plans to add at least one more member to the team from the comics... that's got me, and I'm sure a lot of you, really thinking about both who wasn't in the first movie that should be put in, and who could play them.

So I sat down, and started thinking about some of my favorite cosmic characters that either aren't tied up by another studio, or who could at least be potentially purchased before then. I admit... just for the sake of conversation, I went REALLY outside the box on some of these. Take a look at my list, then let me know if you agree, disagree, or have your own ideas!
