Walkmans at the ready. Press ‘PLAY’ for The Awesome Mix. Production on James Gunn’s hotly-anticipated sequel to Marvel’s Guardians Of The Galaxy has begun.

Whilst we will witness the welcome returns of Chris Pratt’s Peter Quill/Star-Lord, Vin Diesel’s Groot, Dave Bautista’s Drax The Destroyer, Zoe Saldana’s Gamora and Bradley Cooper’s Rocket Raccoon in Vol.2, director Gunn has wasted little time in confirming a quartet of new additions via his Twitter account.


Joining the eclectic ensemble of intergalactic outlaws will be The Knick star Chris Sullivan, actresses Pon Klementieff who graced Spike Lee’s Oldboy remake along with The Man From U.N.C.L.E.’s Elizabeth Debicki and after much speculation, Kurt Russell whom you can currently see in Quentin Tarantino’s The Hateful Eight.

The film will debut in the UK on April 28th 2017, a week ahead of Stateside (5th May 2017).
