James Gunn quotes 80s hair metal to kick off ‘Guardians of the Galaxy 2’ filming


With a little over a year to go until the sequel hits the local cineplex, Guardians of the Galaxy director James Gunn is hard at work filming in Atlanta. But not so hard at work that he couldn”t share a little something from the set.

I wonder if they get to take those chairs home…


In the words of the great poet David Coverdale, Here I go again. #GotGVol2

Just to add a little spice, what are the chances Gunn just happened to quote Whitesnake on accident? Kind of low, right? What do you guys think? Has Chris Pratt been listening to Whitesnake on Awesome Mix Vol. 2 while filming? Are audiences going to see the opening credits of Vol. 2 set against the hair metal of 1982?


Feels good to be back in action on Guardians of the Galaxy Volume 2!!! I can't even tell you how excited I am. Ok I'll try. I'm ecstatic. I'm bursting with joy. I'm overwhelmed by feelings of enthusiasm, joy, gratitude, conviviality, camaraderie, elation, exhilaration. I just used an online thesaurus for these words. I suggest trying that. That way instead of saying “I'm very excited” say, “I'm exhilarated.” Never too late to learn words. The pen is mightier than the sword. I never got that. I could whoop someone's ass if I had a sword and they only had a pen. WAIT!!! Now I get it. Cause you could use a giant pen with a dagger on one end? And a gun on the other end? No? Whatever. Point is… Guardians of the Galaxy Vol 2. Is going to be the greatest spectacle film of all time. This is not…. bear with me… using online thesaurus….. Hyperbole! This is not hyperbole!
