The Daily Mail posted a bunch of them, but I don’t want anyone to have to go to the Daily Mail site (FUCK no) so I grabbed a few to post here. The better option, I promise.
Whatcha wearing there, Thor?
Hating Chris Pratt as a person but loving Star-Lord is really hard, it suuuuucks.
NEB U LA
KRAGLIN! Is it weird that I’m almost more exited to see him than any of the other GOTG, since he sat out Infinity War and all? I wasn’t expecting him to even be in this movie! I have no idea what role he’ll play here but I hope it’s something big.
The Guardians of the Galaxy crew did a watchalong of the second movie just like I wanted, and it was at 2am my time. Aw no. But, just like last time, I decided to put all the most substantive tweets together!
Apparently there was a watch-along of the first GOTG yesterday and James Gunn and the cast shared some stuff! I missed it all being in the wrong timezone and all, but here’s the highlights! I had a blast reading them, I hope they do Vol 2 next.
(Awww. :( )
I really don’t like that Quill ran out on his grandparents, never have, but it does make for good fanfiction fodder I guess. I doubt they were close.
Well if it isn’t the Guardians of the Galaxy, back for another funny, action-packed comedy adventure, shockingly rooted in deep, painful and beautiful emotion. On a scale of 1 to MY HEART EXPLODED, how awesome was it to see the gang again? The sequel was highly anticipated after the success of the original, which, let’s be honest, was a bit of a gamble in itself.
Sequels are hard, especially when the original was so beloved. But, Vol 2 knocked it out of the park, bringing us everything we have come to expect from this rag-tag group of lovable dickheads.
AND it solved the mystery of Quill’s parentage!
The movie began with a peek into the whirlwind romance of Peter’s parents, with her being awesome and him being CGI. He showed her a glowing flower-type thing in the forest (I’m sure it’s nothing), and then they made out a bunch.
Okay this looks really interesting, especially since I gather it’s about Pirate Yondu meeting his ancestor Original Yondu, and that multi-universe relation fix was a lot of people’s headcanon back in the day. But on the other hand Kraglin appears to be dead in this one, so eep, and also there’s no Peter and honestly the thing I care about most re Yondu is his relationship with Peter. (And also Michael Rooker’s performance, which obviously cannot be contained in a comic.) So… we’ll see! There’s quite a few comics I want to pick up next time I get the chance.
So it was afewdaysago o’clock that I learned Sean Gunn filmed some scenes for Endgame, and they got cut! I consider this an epic injustice. Look at this green-screen bit from the behind the scenes doc on the DVD. We almost got Peter and Kraglin fighting side-by-side!
And check out his look! He’s got a new fin and looks badass!
Here’s a shot of him aboard a space bike. (The Twitter account that first posted this has mysteriously gone, did the Mouse get them?)
Whether Kraglin was supposed to be besides Peter for the whole scene or on the space bike, I’m not sure. Apparently you can just about make out a space-bike-riding blob in the finished cut of the movie:
So maybe the scene of him on the battlefield was cut early on. I’d have really, really loved to see him there, though. Not only do I like the relationship between Peter and Kraglin and wanna see more of it, if the intention was for Kraglin to be wielding the Yaka Arrow (and he does look a bit like he’s whistling in the top image) that would have meant a part of Yondu was sort of present beside Peter in that battle as well. And that breaks my tiny GOTG-obsessed heart.
This is material ripe for fanfiction! After I’ve finished working on the post-Endgame fic I’m going at the moment, I reckon I’ll give something with Kraglin a whirl. I love that boy (and Sean too, meeting him at ComicCon was a true delight).
