Oh Yeeeah! Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 Begins Shooting!

Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2A few years ago I had the distinct pleasure and a once in a lifetime opportunity to go to California to see Guardians of the Galaxy and meet and interview the cast. It was such an amazing experience and to this day is the best ever press trip I was on. Meeting Chris Pratt, Dave Bautista, James Gunn, Zoe Saldana, and Vin Diesel was simply amazing. We missed Kevin Feige on this trip but I did get to see him on another trip that I went on for Avengers: Age of Ultron. So, suffice it to say I am bursting with excitement to see this movie. I follow James Gunn on Facebook and he is excellent with his posts. He did an amazing thing with Guardians of the Galaxy and Vol. 2. promises to be even better.

There are some great things happening in this new movie including the addition of Kurt Russell as Star-Lord’s father. I think he is the most perfect casting for this role. I’ve loved him since The Computer Wore Tennis Shoes that I watched on The Wonderful World of Disney. And then his roles as Snake Plissken in Escape from New York and then Jack Burton in Big Trouble in Little China, plus Gabriel Cash in Tango and Cash he was awesome! So he’s gonna crush it as Star-Lord’s dad.I just cannot wait. Below is the press release for the movie. Continue reading Oh Yeeeah! Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 Begins Shooting!

I was glued to my computer this afternoon watching the live blogging that Coming Soon.net was doing while at the El Capitan Theater in Hollywood. It was there that the Phase 3 movies were being revealed for Marvel and the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU). There were some surprises, some jokes and some fast ones being pulled but in all it was super enjoyable to hear what is coming next. I am excited to see all of these movies. I’m probably most excited to see Guardians of the Galaxy 2 but that is because of my experiences with the first Guardians of the Galaxy movie and how personal it was to me after my trip to interview the cast. After that I’m excited to see Captain Marvel because that is an interesting character and Black Panther because I liked that character on Avengers: Earth’s Mightiest Heroes. Obviously the tentpole movies like Captain America 3 and Avengers 2, and 3.1 3.2 are going to be amazing. I really want to see all of these. Continue reading Marvel Unveils Slate of Movies till 2019
