Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 begins filming



Earlier this week Disney announced cameras had begun rolling on Rian Johnson's sequel to JJ Abrams' monolithic blockbuster The Force Awakens. Star Wars: Episode VIII. Benicio Del Toro, Laura Dern and newcomer Kelly Marie Tran join returning cast members Daisy Ridley, Mark Hamill, John Boyega, Adam Driver and Oscar Isaac in the next chapter of the new Star Wars trilogy.



Now it's the turn of Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 with a cool teaser image.

ATLANTA, Ga. (February 17, 2016) – Marvel Studios has begun principal photography at Pinewood Studios in Atlanta, Georgia, on Marvel’s “Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2,” which is slated to hit U.S. theaters on May 5, 2017. The production will shoot at Atlanta’s Pinewood Studios.

James Gunn's Guardians of the Galaxy is one of my favourite Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU) installments and, like Ant-Man, benefitted from being a mostly standalone adventure, unburdened by heavy continuity unlike the average Avengers: Age of Ultron.
