James Gunn Hints At Guardians Of The Galaxy Vol. 2 Music, Talks Groot's Memories And Answers Other Questions


Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 director James Gunn is a Facebook regular. He offers plenty of insight into his process and regularly addresses rumors regarding the upcoming film. But yesterday, he offered a FAQ to point people toward instead of constantly answering when the Vol. 2 trailer will be released or whether or not he'll stick around for a Vol. 3.

On that point: he mentioned he hasn't made up his mind about a third film, but added, "I have a desire to do other things."

He also offered a hint at some of the music to be featured in Vol. 2 by specifying the music used in the Comic-Con footage: Fleetwood Mac's "The Chain" and Jay and the Americans' "Come a Little Bit Closer."

"Does that mean they're in the movie?" he added. "Maybe."

As for the trailer, Gunn could only offer the imprecise "before Christmas" as an estimated time of release. The director previously asked fans to step back a little from the question as it was invading every post, including his memorial to Gene Wilder.

Toward the end of his FAQ, he mentioned a few interesting things about Baby Groot. While there is a "complicated" relationship between Groot and Baby Groot, Gunn emphatically stated that Baby Groot does not retain Groot's memories. Interestingly, Gunn refused to answer whether or not the sapling will grow into full-sized Groot during the film.

Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 opens on May 5th, 2017.
