"In the end, my love for Rocket, Groot, Gamora, Star-Lord, Yondu, Mantis, Drax, and Nebula - and some of the other forthcoming heroes - goes deeper than you guys can possibly imagine," Gunn wrote about weighing the third "Guardians" film, "and I feel they have more adventures to go on and things to learn about themselves and the wonderful and sometimes terrifying universe we all inhabit."
Gunn noted how fraught completing a trilogy can be -- and how Hollywood is littered with third films that didn't live up to the first two (see: everything from "The Godfather 3" to "The Hangover 3). Yet the filmmaker also pointed to how his Guardians will begin interlocking with other realms within the Marvel universe, including the Avengers' "Infinity War."
"It will conclude the story of this iteration of the Guardians of the Galaxy, and help catapult both old and new Marvel characters into the next ten years and beyond," Gunn wrote. "I will be working side-by-side with Kevin Feige and the gang to help design where these stories go, and make sure the future of the Marvel Cosmic Universe is as special and authentic and magical as what we have created so far."
We can expect Gunn to continue to drop tantalizing nuggets of news on social media ahead of "Guardians 2's" May 5 release.

“Four hours of Guardians bliss” are coming to theaters, according to James Gunn. The writer-director of Guardians of the Galaxy and its upcoming sequel announced on Saturday that a double feature of his Marvel space operas are coming to select theaters in RealD 3D on Thursday, May 4.
This isn’t the first time theaters screened back-to-back Marvel movies — in fact, it’s actually one of the shorter marathons. In 2012, AMC Theaters screened the entire MCU Phase 1 lineup, beginning with the first Iron Man, as a lead-in to the premiere of The Avengers. A more exhaustive blitz took place in 2015 for Avengers: Age of Ultron, and last year, Marvel brought a Captain America-specific marathon to theaters ahead of Captain America: Civil War. Comparably, four hours seems like a breeze.
According to Gunn, those who show up for the Guardians double feature will receive “an exclusive poster and souvenir collectible button set.” Tickets for the extravaganza are on sale now. Check out the announcement and a new poster below.
Guardians of the Galaxy, Vol. 2 sees the return of Star-Lord (Chris Pratt), Gamora (Zoe Saldana), Drax (Dave Bautista), Rocket (voiced by Bradley Cooper), Groot (voiced by Vin Diesel), Yondu (Michael Rooker), and Nebula (Karen Gillan) on a new space adventure. Kurt Russell (Ego the Living Planet), Elizabeth Debicki (Ayesha), and Pom Klementieff (Mantis) will appear as new characters in Marvel’s galaxy far, far away.
The film opens in theaters everywhere May 5.

The amazing James Monroe Iglehart is a man of many talents. He steals the show every night as the tap dancing, wish granting, improvising, magical The Genie in Disney on Broadway’s Aladdin, but did you know he also has a passion for the rare lexiconic art of the rap battle.
Now don’t tune out yet because this story has a Disney twist. Iglehart is also a huge Disney nerd and shares a passion for comics as well. So no one was surprised when he showed up at the New York Comic-Con.
While chatting with the folks at the Marvel booth, he dropped this epic rap about the ultimate villain
But it doesn’t stop there. DMC ( aka Darryl Makes Comics aka Darryl McDaniels from the legendary pioneers of hip hop — Run-D.M.C.) stopped by the booth as well and, after seeing Iglehart’s Ultron rap, challenged him to a rap battle. Oh, it’s on!
I love that old school rap style, add to it the ability to improvise amazing lyrics, and this was an awesome display of their talents. It’s clear Iglehart was starstruck, but he did a standup job. Don’t you agree?
If someone at Disney isn’t working on a way to capitalize on Iglehart’s many talents, I’d be very disappointed.

There were packed houses at New York Comic Con. And then there was the crowd that greeted the Saturday afternoon panel devoted to Marvel’s Netflix series Daredevil and upcoming series Jessica Jones. It was stuffed to the gills with fans. They seemed to be in every seat in the hall, which comfortably accommodated several thousand people, with folks standing in the back of the auditorium, on the sides, in the aisles. The New York Comic Con crowd was ready and really, really pumped.
And they had every right to be. Daredevil, which premiered in full on Netflix this past April and instantly became a fan favorite, is one of the most challenging and sophisticated small screen superhero sagas yet. It took place in the identifiable Marvel Cinematic Universe, but took place on a smaller scale; emotions were just as often bruised as bodies. Its hyper-specific setting (the Hell’s Kitchen neighborhood in New York) made the drama more manageable and human. It is darker and grittier than the Marvel movies, but because the story necessitates that. Also, we got one of the all-time great hero/villain showdowns in Charlie Cox’s Matt Murdock, a lawyer who moonlights as a vigilante, and Vincent D’Onofrio’s Wilson Fisk, a kingpin of crime masquerading as a concerned New York philanthropist. As soon as the first season was over, you were ready for the second. Don’t worry – it’s coming.
At the panel this afternoon were Doug Petrie and Marco Ramirez, who are the co-showrunners this year, along with the cast of Daredevil: Elodie Yung (who plays Elektra this season), Jon Bernthal (who plays the Punisher this season), and returning favorites Elden Henson (Foggy), Deborah Ann Woll (Karen Page), and Charlie Cox (Daredevil). Jeph Loeb, the creative head of Marvel’s TV division, who clearly has an affinity for the series (he called Henson’s Foggy “the heart of the entire Marvel Cinematic Universe”), moderated the panel. Early on, they showed footage from the new season, made up of glimpses of what’s to come: Matt in his new Daredevil costume, Elektra putting on her mask, Karen looking at the image of a skull (that looks eerily similar to the skull on the iconic Punisher costume), a priest telling Matt and Foggy that “Guilt can be a good thing,” Rosario Dawson’s Claire Temple looking very disappointing, and then the Punisher, seen from behind and then uttering a single word: “Pain.” Bring it on.
Executive producer Ramirez addressed both the reaction of the first season and what to expect for the second. “I think a lot of what we were doing was wondering in our writers room if there was a place in the world where a dark, gritty, sophisticated, grounded superhero show could exist,” he explained. “Because of the fan reaction, which was overwhelming and wonderful, we said, you want it grounded, you want it dark? Here’s Elektra, here’s Punisher.” (In the comics Elektra is a sexy ninja assassin, created during Frank Miller’s influential run on the series.
The Punisher is Frank Castle, a violent vigilante who makes Murdock’s nighttime prowling seem tame by comparison. Both characters fit comfortably in the mode of “antihero.” Ramirez has previously called the second season “Daredevil vs. Punisher.”) Petrie, who worked with Daredevil series creator Drew Goddard on Buffy the Vampire Slayer, added: “I hesitate to use the word blessing but all of us, across the board, we love two things: one of them is Matt Murdock, and the other is the world that Matt Murdock navigates.” He then summed up the new season thusly: “Now with the Punisher and Elektra we take it further and darker and more emotional. We’re fans too. So the stuff that you want to see, we want to see, and we can’t wait to show it to you.” (Petrie later teased that there would be more flashbacks this season.)
The new cast members seem particularly suited for their new roles. Yung has a black belt in karate. And Bernthal reached out to the show’s creators even before they had locked down what season two was going to be. Bernthal rubbed his face and said, in the most authentic and endearing way possible, “Look, I know how important this character to you guys. I know that. I know how important this show is to you guys. I know how important he is to law enforcement, the military, and I look at this as a huge honor, a huge responsibility, and I give you my absolute word that I am going to give everything that I have.” Later in the panel, Bernthal said that people on the street are only adding to the pressure. “15, 20 times a day I get, ‘You better not mess this up, man.’ And I say, ‘I hear you, I hear you.’”
As for the returning cast members, Woll teased that the next season would see more of Matt and Karen outside of the office. “I don’t know how far I can go, but Charlie Cox is one of my favorite people I’ve ever gotten to work with,” Woll enthused. “It’s been a privilege this season.” For his part, Cox explained his experience with Daredevil as being intimidating and incredibly rewarding. “I had some apprehension about playing someone known as the Man without Fear, because playing someone incapable of fear on a TV show isn’t that interesting. It robs you of one of my favorite characteristics in people, which is courage,” Cox said. “The thing I’ve learned the most from working with these people and playing this extraordinary character, is courage – how much courage it takes to be a vulnerable human but also a vulnerable superhero. It’s been a cool journey to be on.”
And the journey continues when Daredevil returns to Netflix in 2016.

Marvel News: Penultimate Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. Art of Evolution sets the stage for an intense finale
Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.’s second season has introduced us to new faces, new sections of government, and new characters with powerful abilities. Next week, it all comes together in an explosive, intense and high-energy two hour season finale—and to commemorate the episode, Marvel is proud to bring you two separate pieces in the final installments of this season’s The Art of Evolution.
Artist Ryan Sook brings some of the show’s most beloved characters to life in the poster for part one of “S.O.S.,” which will deal with the inevitable aftermath of Jiaying’s ominous “we are at war” declaration from the end of this week’s episode. Sook has done a variety of work at Marvel, most notably covers for X-Factor. Additionally, he’s well known for the work he’s done at DC Comics, where his projects include Hawkman, Arkham Asylum: Living Hell, Justice League and The Spectre.
We preview the FitzSimmons centric art with series EP Jeff Bell, and share some teases from next week’s double header.
ENTERTAINMENT WEEKLY: I think this is such a smart poster. I love the style, but I also love the double juxtaposition of the wording: “mad science” given FitzSimmons’ background, especially as it relates to powered people. And then of course the “Hyde” reference for Cal, who is known in the comics as “Mr. Hyde.” JEFF BELL: It’s really fun, and we pitched a couple of different ideas. And I think the thing was that we hadn’t really featured FitzSimmons…they’ve been small, but they hadn’t really gotten their moment. So putting them together like that, sort of helping to illustrate their evolution over the past few seasons—from sort of afraid of everything in the dark to people who can take care of themselves—it’s a nice way to honor them here. I love the old school look with the five faces up in the corner.
This week, I felt we got kind of a lead-up to Fitz and Simmons in terms of how they might figure into the events of the finale…especially with Simmons’ line about killing Ward, which seems almost like foreshadowing of Simmons crossing a certain line. I think they each get something that’s a big piece of the puzzle. It’s hard when you have so many characters you love, and you’re trying to tie them all together and bring people together. And then you have different versions of S.H.I.E.L.D., and now they’re starting to come back together, so I can’t wait to see what people think.
Looking back on this run, what I really love about all these art pieces is the way they’ve dropped hints not just for the specific episode that they’re focusing on, but also for the overarching storylines. Right. And because they come out before the episodes, we have to be a little coy with it. You can’t just go “Jiaying’s a monster in episode 20.” [laughs] You can’t go too far.
And we saw Cal give himself over to S.H.I.E.L.D., in an attempt to save his family. But with the way he’s depicted here, I’d imagine he might not be as innocent as we’ve been led to believe… That seems reasonable. [laughs]
Given that all hell is going to break loose in this hour, what can you tease about the first part of the finale? Episodes 20, 21 and 22 almost work as a three-parter. I think because we were doing the full two hours on the final night, we really decided to just lead into that. We left episode 20 with Jiaying saying “this is war,” and Skye assuming that Gonzales shot her and attacked her, so we have S.H.I.E.L.D. and Inhumans and all our different threads finally coming together. And Skye is really torn between these two factions, between her surrogate family and her real family. Where will she go with that? And we’ve been promising Inhumans and some fun powered stuff, and hopefully we can make good on that promise as well.
“S.O.S.”, the first part of the season two finale, airs Tuesday, May 12 at 9 p.m. ET on ABC. Be sure to check EW tomorrow morning to see the exclusive reveal of the final art piece for episode 22. The art for “S.O.S.” part one will go on sale on Friday, May 8 at www.marvelshop.com/agentsofshield as a $49.99 print (limited to 100 copies) at 12:30 a.m. PT.

It’s true that Palicki’s had hitting Mockingbird has developed a fan following, and I’ve enjoyed the play between her and Blood’s character. They always seem to have an extra surprise up their sleeves for whomever they encounter. They also have a natural rhythm when they work together on assignment.
As Agents, Morse and Hunter, were second season additions to the Marvel TV show. As it currently stands, the two characters are on opposite sides of opposing factions on the good guys, but still in love. Events of the last few episodes this year are supposed to provide the jumping off point for the spin-off.
Like last year with “Captain America: The Winter Soldier,” the events of “Avengers: Age of Ultron” are also expected to have an impact on our team in Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.. Should be an interesting last five episodes this season.
With Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., a second mini-season for Agent Carter, this new spin-off and a potential fourth series (based on Ms. Marvel says internet rumors), there’s a lot of marvel-ly goodness coming to ABC in the future. What other Marvel properties do you think would make for a good TV show?
