New Concept Art for GotG Vol 2

Greetings and Salutations, fellow Galaxians! Quick update for you here with a first view of the character new to the movie franchise - Mantis! This was done by the extraordinary Andy Park, who has done the vast majority of  the MCU's concept art. Be sure to check out his Twitter, where he posts often and shares some unseen concept art. Very cool stuff, not only Marvel related. The art was released in an article by EW you can find here. Andy's Twitter account can be found by clicking here - @AndyParkArt. And without further ado...

Happy Rocket Raccoon Day 2016! & 40 Years of Awesome Giveaway (Giveaway Closed/Winners Chosen)

Cosmic Greetings, all! This is Rocketite Commander Leo Wyld. It's been a while, hasn't it?

I am posting today for celebration. Marvel Preview, a magazine-like comic publication, introduced several now-important Marvel characters. For instance, Marvel Preview #4 in January 1976 introduced the world to the now well-known (then quite obscure) Peter "Star-Lord" Quill. In that Marvel Preview #4, aside from Quill's story, was also introduced a series, an Odyssey-In-Space feature called Sword in the Stars, written by one Bill Mantlo. Months later, in Marvel Preview #7, released June 1976, in a continuation of that Sword in the Stars we met a new character, a gun-toting talking raccoon, who, as the creature said, his friends called Rocky. Yes, even though his personality was a tad different and the setting does not now fit into 616 canon, this was the debut of Rocket Raccoon (and pretty cool him and his second-best-friend Quill kinda had a connection even back in 1976). If you do the math (or read all of the title), yes, that means this June is Rocket Raccoon's 40th Anniversary. Today, June 15th is the first observance of Rocket Raccoon Day.

MINOR SPOILERS: Nathan Fillion's Character Possibly Revealed For GOTG VOL. 2

Believe it or not, it seems that Firefly star Nathan Fillion star may appear in Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2. Fillion appeared in the first film, but played a very small role and was next to unrecognizable. But while there's no confirmation as of yet, it seems that the film has been shooting a scene... On Earth?! It may be just be a flashback, but there are some very interesting images as well which feature Fillion as a possible character in the film.

I'll only share the video here, but click the "Read More" link below to check out the pictures, and learn the identity of his character!


Again, SPOILERS after the jump... You have been warned...

Set Photos From GOTG VOL. 2 Feature Yondu; Reveal New Characters

Hey guys! Though I think the original posts have been removed, Atlanta Filming over at twitter released some set pictures for James Gunn's "Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2" (which is an awesome name, by the way). The images feature Michael Rooker's 'Yondu' and his band of Ravagers, as well as a few new aliens and characters that will be introduced to the film. Many of them are unrecognizable, but actor Chris Sullivan was spotted in the pictures as comic villain 'Taserface'. So while the images are low quality, they're definitely worth checking out!

JAMES GUNN SAYS: Groot Vs. Hulk, Guardians in Civil War, Sean Gunn, Seth Green,

As many of you may already know, Guardians of the Galaxy director, James Gunn, is extremely active on social media. He takes the time out of his undoubtedly busy day to answer fan questions, often with an unmatchable wit. He is truly a fanboy's dream director, giving small tidbits (nothing too spoiler-y though) about the upcoming sequel Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2. Since many people aren't on Facebook, or don't follow Mr. Gunn, we decided to start a new series, called James Gunn Says. Make sure to follow Mr. Gunn on Facebook, if you aren't already.
