After bringing the summer to a close back in 2014, this time, the Guardians of the Galaxy will actually kick off the summer movie festivities with the second chapter in their galactic adventures.
Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 will bring back all five of everyone's favorite Guardians (Star-Lord, Gamora, Drax, Rocket, & Baby Groot), while also introducing three new members to the team (Yondu, Nebula, & Mantis) as they all band together to combat a new threat to the galaxy. They'll also come across Peter Quill's biological father Ego - as in Ego, the Living Planet - who will be played by Golden Globe-nominee Kurt Russell (The Fate of the Furious).
Earlier today, Marvel Collector Corps announced their April box, which is all about GOTG Vol. 2, and also debuted new promotional artwork featuring all five original team members. You can pre-order your box by heading HERE!
