Guardians of the Galaxy sequel, word has come out that fans will not be seeing a return of two big stars, says director James Gunn, one is Puerto Rican-American actor Benicio Del Toro, who was the Collector and the other, he was the leader of the Nova Corps of Xandar, , (Rhomann Dey). This hit Marvel movie, upcoming Guardian of the Galaxy Vol. 2, has been written and directed by James Gunn and hosts some big names such as Chris Pratt, Zoe Saldana, Vin Diesel, Bradley Cooper and Glenn Close. Looking forward to seeing this second installment of a child, the character of Peter Quill/Star-Lord played by (Chris Pratt) from earth, who had been abducted and raised by a group of alien thieves and smugglers called the Ravagers.
Over in Atlanta, the Sequel is being filmed, and the main focus will be on Peter Quill, helping him to learn more about his father as this was a question along with the whereabouts of the injured Nebula that was left hanging in the balance following the first movie.
Speaking in a Facebook chat, director James confirmed that John C. Reilly who played Rhomann Dey in the first film, will not be returning, while Benicio Del Toro, who played the Collector (and appeared in a post-credits scene after Thor: The Dark World) will not be in the sequel. He did, however, hint that Benicio may re-appear in other related movies.
James said that while Benicio “just didn’t fit into Volume 2″, he is “very excited to see him in the MCU (Marvel Cinematic Universe) in the future”.
He told Vulture last week (14Apr16), that “at its heart, Guardians is a story about families. And if the first film was about him and his mother, this is a story about fathers. So it’s exciting to go there.”
“Listen, I’m still excited about Star-Lord’s character and where he goes,” he added. “I knew for a long time what the story of the second one was going to be,” he admitted, “and the third one!”
It will be an exciting 2017, when the Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2, will hit the big screens in the U.S. on May 5 and in the U.K. on 28 April.
