Even if people die, come on, this is Marvel... since when do comic characters stay dead?

And now the first bit of concept art, directly from James Gunn.



Our first look at Mantis, some different outfits, a weird hybrid armor chestpiece and jetpack worn by Star Lord, Baby Groot, and...Yondu maybe having a full grown fin mohawk now?

The best thing in that picture is obviously Baby Groot.

Mantis looks cool. Makes sense not to make her green since having 3 green people on the team would be a bit odd looking.

Plus, Elizabeth Debicki will be playing Ayesha in the film.

Not necessarily. Ayesha, aka Kismet, aka Her, was a synthetic being, created by a group of scientists called the Enclave, as a mate for their first creation, Him, aka Adam Warlock. She was later revealed to be the mother of classic Guardians member Starhawk.Of course, that was a different timeline than the old 616 Universe, not sure about the post Secret Wars MU.

If you haven't seen it yet, James Gunn wrote up a big recap of everything that was discussed at the panel on facebook:

James Gunn wrote:
Whoa! So we just got off stage at the San Diego Comicon showing not one, but THREE Guardians clips: 1) A piece from the film featuring Yondu, Rocket, baby Groot, and the Ravagers, 2) A behind-the-scenes featurette of me and the cast working on the forthcoming Guardians attraction at Disneyland, and 3) A special glimpse at a montage of Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2.
I thought I’d share with you guys what we shared with everyone there.
If you don’t want minor spoilers from the film, don’t continue to read. I won’t hold it against you, I swear.
Here are the headlines –

THE RAVAGERS ARE A BIG PART OF VOL. 2
Most were on hand for the SDCC presentation, disrupting the proceedings as Ravagers are prone to do. We learn that they’ve had a somewhat contentious, even mutinous, relationship with Yondu since Vol. 1, due to the fact that Yondu let Peter Quill go without reprisal after not giving them the orb.

The leader in all of these shenanigans is the incredibly-powerful yet incredibly ridiculously-named TASERFACE, played by Chris Sullivan (it’s worth noting that four years ago when I was hired for the first Guardians film, I joked that I was going to make Taserface my villain. I suppose it’s no longer a joke).

MICHAEL ROOKER SHOWED UP IN FULL YONDU MODE
With a big-ass fin on his head. ‘Nuff said.

NEBULA IS A MAJOR PART OF THE FILM
As Karen Gillan knows – because I told her during my first meeting with her – GotG Vol. 1 was just a glimpse at a character I had major plans for in the future of the Guardians-verse. I did not lie.

ELIZABETH DEBICKI PLAYS AYESHA
Ayesha is the golden High Priestess of a genetically-perfect people called the Sovereign. She’s not a woman to be screwed with – she, and her entire world, are extraordinarily deadly.

WE CAUGHT A FIRST LOOK AT MANTIS
Our look for Mantis is similar to her original look in the comics – she’s the same color as Pom Klementieff, the actress who plays her (i.e not green), and she has antennae. We saw just a tiny little glimpse of her in the Comic-Con footage. More will be coming. She’s been one of my favorite parts of making this film.

YES, SYLVESTER STALLONE IS IN THE FILM
This was an amazing experience for me, considering I ran around in my backyard as a kid pretending I was Johnny Rambo. Working with Sly was one of the high points of shooting Vol. 2 for me.
Who does he play? Well, I can’t reveal that quite yet… but we do see him interacting with Yondu in the teaser.

TWO SONGS PLAYED IN THE FOOTAGE
“Come a Little Bit Closer,” by Jay and the Americans, played during the clip where Yondu faces off against some of the Ravagers.
“The Chain,” by Fleetwood Mac was the song used in the montage.
Am I saying these songs are part of Awesome Mix Vol. 2? Not necessarily. But they are great tunes…
A NEW DISNEYLAND GOTG ATTRACTION IS COMING
I’m a huge Disneyland fan and the Tower of Terror is my second favorite attraction there (Space Mountain is number one). So when the folks approached me, asking me to be involved with a new Guardians attraction, I was apprehensive.

WE DISCLOSED THE IDENTITY OF PETER QUILL’S FATHER
This is the biggie, I guess. And, yes, as many people guessed, or assumed, Kurt Russell is playing Peter Quill’s father. And Peter Quill’s father is (as almost no one has guessed)… EGO.

Known in the comics as Ego the Living Planet.
Yeah, his dad is a planet. Sort of. It will all be explained in the film..
But to me, this is the absolute center of Vol. 2, and one of the reasons I’ve been so excited about it. When Marvel first approached me with the first movie, I thought, “Wait a second? A talking raccoon? Isn’t that a rather ridiculous idea to base a movie around?”
It was then that I took a step back and asked myself: Okay, if a raccoon could talk, and shoot a machine gun, how could that be? And answering that question ended up being the entire foundation of Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 1. There was a sadness in the answer. Rocket was an animal experimented upon, torn apart and put back together, without compassion. He was the only being of his type, had never known any hint of kindness, and was utterly and completely alone until he met his fellow Guardians. And, one of them in particular – Groot – thought it was worth sacrificing his life for his sake. This melancholy and beautiful undercurrent helped to ground the character for me. He had far more in common with Frankenstein’s monster than he did Bugs Bunny. And I related to him, greatly, and I hoped other folks who felt like outsiders would as well.
Ego seemed, in many ways, like an even more ridiculous character. But I asked myself, if a planet was alive, how could that be? And how could it father a child?
The answers to those questions took me to a far deeper place that I expected. I don’t want to give away too many answers at this time. But what Nova Prime said about Peter’s father at the end of Vol. 1 is certainly true – he is something ancient and unknown. And, as we will discover, being a cosmic being, alone for eons, is perhaps even more lonely than being the universe’s sole talking raccoon.
I can’t wait for you guys to see Kurt Russell bring this character to life onscreen. It has been a rapturous experience creating Ego with him. We have both pushed ourselves as far as we can go in making him real, and grounded, and emotionally centered.
I also can’t wait for all of you to see this movie. I really, really love it. Never has anything I’ve done flowed as smoothly as this project, and been so true and consistent from the first day I started writing it until today, as we edit it and create our visual effects.
And, worry not. Although you’ve learned a lot today, we have countless more surprises for you as we get closer to our release date. And even more of them in the movie itself.
Stay tuned to this page for more updates as we approach May 5, 2017 and Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2!
Thanks!
James

Also here's pic of Yondu with a more classic mohawk.

Man, Peter's dad being a freaking planet has to be one of the most out there things for any superhero movie. But it's the kind of creativity and weirdness I like to see. Very excited for this.

So Star Lord's dad is Ego. HOW?! Also, this is really going to screw with the comics.

Yeah, because the movies are so totally tied into the events of the comics, and they totally matter to each other...

Yeah, J'son of Spartax as Star-Lord's father is still a pretty big part of the current GOTG run, so it's not like they're gonna change anything.

I love the idea. And I love Kurt Russell doing anything.

IMAGINATION!

The planet could make an artificial body in the form of Kurt Russell so he doesn't have to be use a voice over.

Ego made a human version of himself, put a baby in momma Quill, and went back to his home planet (so himself).

Also, comics continuity doesn't matter. The first movie especially didn't follow most of what was already established in the comics. Taking liberties is okay if the end result is good.

Sylvester Stallone's role in the film is not huge, but it's a "very, very key, important role" according to James Gunn.

Also they said after the first movie that Quill's dad wouldn't be the same as it was in the comics, so no surprise it's something completely different.

Could also be Ego is able to possess people and get's into Kurt's character, using him. Then maybe he's just stayed in that body all this time, or somehow got off Earth, who really knows. No doubt it'll all make sense in the movie.

You apparently haven't noticed how much Marvel actually does jam the movie shit into the comics. All that needs to change is to make J'son an avatar for Ego and boom a retcon has been born.
