Family ties test the unconventional 'Guardians of the Galaxy'

The first outing had a great witty script, full of punchy one- liners and a ragtag bunch of individual characters who all seem to have their crosses to bear which is what bonds them together. It's hard to pinpoint the exact reason for DC's inferior movie quality but if I had to nail it down I'd say lack of humor has definitely hurt them.

"Guardians of the Galaxy 2 " is directed by James Gunn. "They spent 10 minutes telling us why should we care about these characters, rather than creating trilogies for each character and convincing us to care about the characters", Pratt told Gizmodo.

Fans have yet to see "Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2" in theaters to judge whether it is better than the first film. Kevin (Feige) and I are working on what is going to become of the Marvel Cosmic Universe and where it's going to go. And I think that any sequel where they're not just repeating the structure of the first movie was an inspiration.

That upcoming film could serve as a passing of the torch if key Avengers such as Iron Man (Robert Downey Jr.), Captain America (Chris Evans) and Thor (Chris Hemsworth) have reached the end of their cinematic Avengers contractual obligations.

For the most part, Marvel Studios has created movies that follow a uniform story structure and tone that appease the mass audiences that eat them up.

During a job, they run afoul of The Sovereign, a race of golden-faced aliens, and have to make a run for it.

The "them" Gunn is referring to is the original Guardians crew, which includes Aleta Ogord (Michelle Yeoh), Charlie-27 (Ving Rhames), Krugarr (a CG character), the Miley Cyrus-voiced Mainframe, as well as Stallone's Starhawk and Michael Rosenbaum's Martinex.

James Gunn, thank you very much! You gave everything and you were always proud of me, way before this.

I think that it's important in these movies that these characters have changed. For those who will be able to watch Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2, remember that the movie is continuing the MCU tradition of inserting scenes as the credits roll, with a total of five mid-credits and post-credits scenes.
