Guardians of the Galaxy director James Gunn has officially revealed the title for the superhero sequel as Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2.
While many thought the reveal was Gunn being sarcastic, Gunn confirmed the title is in fact Vol. 2 on his social media streams.
Yes, the official title of the sequel to Guardians of the Galaxy is Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2. Kevin Feige recently let the title slip while doing Ant-Man press, which I’m really happy about because God knows I’ve let more than one thing slip accidentally while chattering away on this FB page. Also, hats off to some intrepid fans who figured out the title a couple of days after I posted the cover page. More than one person guessed ‘Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2′ – I wanted so badly to give you props at the time, but knew I had to wait.
Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 opens in theaters on May 5, 2017.
Okay, I'm not being sarcastic, guys. Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 IS truly the title. https://t.co/ooQw1iEG0s
