According to director James Gunn, the script for Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 is now done. What does that mean for fans? Not much, really, aside from the fact that everything is moving along according to schedule, and that the film should have no problem hitting its May 5th, 2017 release date.
What’s interesting to note, however, is Gunn’s comments that he made during a Twitter Q&A that was held after he announced the finalized script. While he obviously couldn’t reveal much, the director did say that writing sequels are easier than writing the first entry in the series, but in this particular case, he worked harder and took longer.

Gunn also said that the story stayed pretty much the same from initial concept to final draft and that he’s keeping the overall cast smaller. His reasoning behind that last part is because he wants audiences to get to know the characters they already know a bit better. And speaking of the characters and cast, he mentioned that the casting process was just about done, meaning we should get confirmation on Kurt Russell’s involvement one way or another quite soon.
That was the only notable info that Gunn would reveal, and like we said before, it’s not much. But then again, it’s not like we really need much reassurance heading in Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2. I don’t think anyone has any doubt in their mind that the director is going to knock it out of the park again, and even if this was all we were to hear about the film before its release, moviegoers would still flock in droves to the theatre to see it.
Wouldn’t you agree?
