Kurt Russell on the Pacific Northwest, fatherhood, and Guardians of the Galaxy

She said: "The Guardians of the Galaxy are the least known [characters] in the Marvel Universe, James had some pressure [for the first film] but this time he didn't and we all kept egging him on".

Thanks to the new Pay-TV deal between Disney and Netflix, all new Disney movies are coming to the streaming service at some point. In a recent interview, the star admitted director James Gunn had to fight for his part in the film. Other returning cast members include Zoe Saldana as Gamora, Dave Bautista as Drax the Destroyer, Vin Diesel as the voice of tree-like Baby Groot, and Bradley Cooper as the voice of rascally Rocket Raccoon. The first film was cleverly set to a soundtrack provided by Awesome Mixtape #1 that Peter's mom left him.

There's no butter-wouldn't-melt-in-his-mouth Captain America-style blue-eyed boys (or girls) or noble thunder gods among this motley crew of mercenaries - and we love them all the more for that. Mantis' own naivety - the only person she's ever met in her life is Ego (Kurt Russell) - makes it so she takes Drax's comments to heart, not questioning them in the slightest.

Ego brings the gang to the Eden-like planet that holds his lifeforce and is adorned with his face, a planet he designed from scratch in order to approximate what a ideal world might look like (thereby providing an easy justification for its existence as a giant CGI effect - it's only simulating a real place, after all). When Ego tells Quill he wants to be the father he never was, it seems like the answer to a dream.

There are other plots. "Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 will happen after all that". Sylvester Stallone has a bit part with a character named Stakar that will most likely grow bigger in future installments if rumor has it. In this case, the friction comes from her sister Nebula (Karen Gillan), who's determined to kill her for complicity in the torment she suffered at their hands of their evil father, Thanos.

For those who would not mind a little spoiler with regard to the setting of "Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2", the film takes place in the year 2014, like the original.

Groot was such a hit that two weeks after the release of Guardians of the Galaxy, producer Marvel Studios released a range of toys featuring the linguistically challenged tree and a standalone post-credits scene of Baby Groot. "Blue Sky" is all right by me. Instead, we get straight-laced morals about families that feel like warmed-over Fast and Furious wisdom. Rocket successfully regrows Groot from a sapling.

It's the most focused, original and fun Marvel movie to date. His tableaus can work their B-movie charms: a Ravagers mutiny, where dissenters are ejected into space, is harrowing. "Every time, you have to make the team", he said. In Vol. 2, the wheels are starting to spin.

"They're their own person". In one of the best opening sequences of recent memory, we are brought back into the story by seeing the Guardians fighting a giant - and visually imaginative - monster together, scored by a pre-1990s pop song.
