James Gunn Announces Sequel to 'Guardians of the Galaxy'

"Guardians of the Galaxy" director, James Gunn just made a fun little announcement on his official Facebook page! GotG doesn't come out until this Friday, August 1 but it looks like a second film is already being planned. Here's what Gunn wrote about his Comic-Con announcement...

So, anyway, just now at Comicon a filmed bit with me and Chris Pratt played where we announced the sequel to ‪#‎GuardiansoftheGalaxy‬, which we're working on to release in theaters on July 28, 2017. Yes, I suppose this is ballsy, considering the film hasn't even been released yet, but I guess I just can't let go of that damn raccoon! Please go see Guardians of the Galaxy 1 in theaters next week. By the way, this photo has nothing to do with any of that - it's from the LA Times Hero Complex story on me which I appreciate quite a bit.

Will you be heading to theaters on August 1? It looks like early reviews are incredibly positive and we're betting on a huge opening weekend.
