James Gunn Talks GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY 2 Start Date, Return Of 'Nebula', And More

James Gunn recently took part in a couple of different Q&A's, and the Guardians of the Galaxy director has offered up some more details about both the current state of the screenplay and when exactly production is expected to begin. He also teases plans for Karen Gillan's Nebula. Check it out!

Guardians of the Galaxy 2 is still two years away, but writer and director James Gunn is keeping fans updated via his various social media accounts. After recently revealing that he's turned in the treatment to Marvel and will meet with them on Friday in order to start working on the screenplay next week, Gunn added that he's currently 70 pages in and called his pitch to Marvel Studios the best experience he's had with one to date. It's still unclear what the sequel will focus on.

He also confirmed that Karen Gillan's Nebula will make a return, adding that they may have this time found a way to avoid shaving the head of the former Doctor Who star (which you have to imagine will make her more willing to reprise the role). Interestingly, Gunn also told fans that Guardians of the Galaxy 2 will begin production next February and will shoot at Pinewood Atlanta Studios. The first movie was shot in London and featured a lot of British actors and extras. Both Ant-Man and Captain America: Civil War are being shot in Atlanta, so this does make sense.

Guardians of the Galaxy 2 is set to be released on May 5th, 2017. What are you hoping to see?
