There is going to be a “Guardians of the Galaxy” sequel. It was announced during the Marvel movie panel at the 2014 San Diego Comic-Con that “Guardians of the Galaxy 2” will be released on July 28, 2017.
The announcement came via a pre-taped video of “Guardians” star Chris Pratt and director James Gunn. They began by joking that they could cause trouble by announcing the sequel, pretending that they wouldn’t do it.
Then, of course, they did.
Gunn will again direct and write “Guardians of the Galaxy 2.” “Guardians of the Galaxy” (the first one) hits theaters Friday, Aug. 1.
