One poster, though, dwarfs the rest in size. Yep, the very first “Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2” billboard has been spotted in Los Angeles — and it’s been spotted by none other than “GOTG2” writer/director James Gunn. The filmmaker shared a pic of the massive Star-Lord poster via Instagram. As with everything else associated with this film, the billboard is brightly colored with purples, oranges and blues framing a profile shot of Chris Pratt’s galactic guardian in action.
Set to the backdrop of “Awesome Mixtape #2,” Marvel’s “Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2” continues the team’s adventures as they traverse the outer reaches of the cosmos. The Guardians must fight to keep their newfound family together as they unravel the mysteries of Peter Quill’s true parentage. Old foes become new allies and fan-favorite characters from the classic comics will come to our heroes’ aid as the Marvel cinematic universe continues to expand.
Written and directed by James Gunn, “Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2″ stars Chris Pratt, Zoe Saldana, Bradley Cooper, Dave Bautista, Vin Diesel, Karen Gillan, Pom Klementieff, and franchise newcomer, Kurt Russell, who plays Star-Lord’s father – Ego, the Living Planet. “Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2” arrives in theaters May 5.
