Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 just screened for the media in select cities in preparation for tomorrow’s junket (stay tuned for our video interviews!) and early reactions have begun to surface online painting an extremely positive picture.
No wonder writer and director James Gunn was able to announce earlier today that he’ll be back writing and directing Guardians of the Galaxy 3! While we’ll have some excited news to share tomorrow, and later this week when our interviews begin to release, the early reactions also revealed something very exciting: there are five (5!) post-credit scenes attached to what the press saw with Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2!
Update: James Gunn confirmed and clarified that are five:
@screenrant Well, five, actually. 😊— James Gunn (@JamesGunn) April 18, 2017
That’s not only an increase over any previous Marvel Cinematic Universe production, but that’s a record setter for superhero movies. Four of the button tags are mid-credits bonus scenes – and just like Gunn promised, they’re mostly for fun and laughs – and there’s an additional one at the very end too. At least two of the five sort of set up important and cool things for the future so if there’s ever been a time to sit through the credits of a feature in cinemas, this is it. We’ll share details on what they are later, after the embargo lifts. No spoilers here!
You’ll also want to pay very close attention to the credits themselves!
And get ready for the Stan Lee cameo of all Stan Lee cameos!
Stay tuned for more details, exclusives, news, and interviews all week long and look for our Guardians of the Galaxy 2 review and more next week!
