Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 doesn’t open for a few more weeks, but today was the opening of the floodgates. Reviews, news, quotes, you name it, and today you probably read about for the upcoming Marvel movie.
The biggest problem with Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 is the first Guardians of the Galaxy movie. Vol. 1, if you will, was such a huge, surprise hit that most of the massive audiences who will flock to see Vol. 2 will all want to relive watching the first film. They’ll get their wish, sometimes, but other times Vol.…
This week saw the release of Chip Zdarsky, Kris Anka, and Matthew Wilson’s Star-Lord #6—which is, sadly, now the final issue of the series save for a one-shot annual arriving later this year. It’s such a shame, because this series has tackled Star-Lord in ways that few comics since the Guardians movie have even…
If possible, you should go into Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 as clean as possible. There are a lot of huge surprises. However, now that the film is screening and the cast is doing interviews, spoilers are starting to leak—including some major ones at today’s press conference.
Ever since the first Guardians of the Galaxy movie dropped a hint of Marvel’s quantum magic-flinging hero Adam Warlock, fans have wondered when or if he’d ever join his fellow Guardians on the big screen. But now we know that he’s definitely coming, and when to expect him.
After the reveal that Captain America has secretly been a Hydra agent, after the controversy, and after months of teasing and build-up, the first issue of Marvel’s Secret Empire event is here. And boy, there are a lot of things happening—some tragic, some exciting, and some... well, baffling.
Despite the bitchin’ soundtrack, Telltale Games’ latest collaboration, Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy, can’t be called a thrilling, rock-fueled space opera. It’s more like easy listening. The first episode’s biggest event happens in the first few minutes, and everything else is characters sitting around and…
Marvel has announced the much-anticipated soundtrack for Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2, and it looks like James Gunn and the Guardians crew have outdone themselves, with an impressive and eclectic set list that truly earns the name “Awesome Mix.”
So, in a certain way, that’s a comic based on a game inspired by a movie based on a comic that the game based on a movie is also based on, loosely. I think. Hold on, I’m starting to get a headache.
James Gunn, the man behind the movie iteration of Guardians of the Galaxy—and who may one day win an award for being the man most in love with his job, social media, and talking about his job on social media—has announced that he’ll be back for a third Guardians movie.
For a while, we’ve been hearing that not all of Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 takes place in space. New details courtesy of an extended skit on Jimmy Kimmel last night, however, have given us a few more details that might explain a few things as to why we’ll be heading to Earth in the new movie.
I’m back, my bulk mail brothers and sisters! I am also now 40 years old, which means if you enjoy my opinions and mail column, I officially have the wisdom of age on my side. If you don’t, no worries, because death is coming for me. This week: Baby Groot hate! Mutant-Inhuman hybrids! And—gasp!—the merits of The Big…
Okay, so I know the reason why—because Ford has a new marketing deal with Marvel to promote its latest car through the medium of cosmic superheroes. But come on. If the Star-Lord’s ship the Milano could have feelings, it would be very hurt right now.
One of the latest international teasers for Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 is out, and it’s got a few cute moments... including a brief shot of dancing Baby Groot. But holy hell, German Guardians sound amazing. I’m already regretting minoring in French.
The Lego Batman Movie made enough at the box office to ensure that won’t be the last superhero to get the Lego Hollywood treatment. YouTube’s Huxley Berg Studios makes a strong case for the Guardians of the Galaxy to be next, but also for every movie to be turned into two hours of talking plastic bricks.
It’s hard to imagine these days with their second movie on the way and Peter Quill’s abs liberally splayed across comic pages, but there was a time not long ago when the Guardians of the Galaxy were just a no-name, has-been Marvel team.
‘Tis the season to consume chocolate effigies of bunnies, chicks, and gigantic eggs. But given the choice, we’d much rather rifle through all that fake plastic grass in our Easter baskets to discover this incredibly detailed solid chocolate Baby Groot. Although, we’d be too impressed to devour it.
Sure, the mad Titan himself might seem like the real enemy here, but really, the true enemy Peter Quill and the gang face is the universe’s slowest elevator ride.

Long before Rocket Raccoon and Groot entered his life, James Gunn had a dream. Literally. In 2007, Gunn had a dream about a corporate office where the employees are forced to kill each other as part of some mysterious experiment. But 10 years ago, the director could have never imagined how the Marvel heroes would…
