“Guardians of the Galaxy” hasn’t been released in theaters yet (at least not widespread in this country), but it is one of the summer’s most anticipated films. Chris Pratt, Zoe Saldana, Dave Bautista, Vin Diesel and Bradley Cooper will star in the Marvel Comics movie as a band of intergalactic outlaws that will become the galaxy’s last line of defense as against maniacal destructive force. Marvel Studios believes it has another hit on its hands, so they are going ahead with a sequel. “Guardians of the Galaxy 2” will occupy the July 28, 2017 release date Marvel has penciled in for their Phase 3 slate of the Avengers Initiative. The first “Guardians of the Galaxy” film is directed by James Gunn, who co-wrote the screenplay with Nicole Perlman, and arrives in theaters this Friday.
