Marvel Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2

by Kyle Schellberg

Similarities between the Marvel Guardians of the Galaxy Vol.1 and Vol.2.

The biggest similarities I can tell from previews is that Grub is coming back but he’s smaller.

Also, all of the main characters will be back because no one had died from the last one, that’s how I know they will be back.

Director James Gunn hints at a gay hero in Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2. (Armitage) This is a change since 2014 because in Vol. 1 there was no hints at the LGBT community.

The article writes about how there more than likely will be more LGBT in the future Disney movies.

I believe that if there is a Vol. 3 there will be more support by using even more gay or transgender actors.

What critics are already saying about the movie without watching it yet.

“Shot for shot, line and line, it’s an extravagant and witty follow-up, made with the same friendly virtuosic dazzle.” Says Owen Glieberman from Variety. (Knapp)

Critics thing that Vol. 2 will blow Vol. 2 out of water not only because it’s 3 years later but because the script that critics have looked at looks very intense.

After watching Volume 2 I fell in love with the Guardians of the Galaxy series. Volume 2 goes so well with the first one, I was very impressed. The series is a must-see. Critics have been saying Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 is the ‘most fun’ movie this year. “Like many a sequel to a slam-bang, much-liked mega-hit, 'Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2' isn't quite as much fun, not quite as clever, not quite as fresh as the original — but it still packs a bright and shiny and sweet punch.”  Richard Roeper from Chicago Sun-Times.

Alex David Olson and I went to the movie together in Willmar, Minnesota. After a brief interview with this individual he says the movie was “very enjoyable.” He is also a big Marvel fan and the Guardians of the Galaxy series. He was also blown away, as well as myself, of how much the story line stayed the same and the graphics they used in the movie.
