Set to the backdrop of ‘Awesome Mixtape #2,’ Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 continues the team’s adventures as they traverse the outer reaches of the cosmos. The Guardians must fight to keep their newfound family together as they unravel the mysteries of Peter Quill’s true parentage. Old foes become new allies and fan-favorite characters from the classic comics will come to our heroes’ aid as the Marvel cinematic universe continues to expand.
Movie Review : In Marvel lingo, Guardians 2 feels like a great six-issue arc, the kind of storytelling that used tobe the backbone of superhero comics. A comic-book film used to be an unusual enough event to generate interest on its own; now, it partly exists to hype another five coming attractions, like some never-ending pyramid scheme. Guardians 2 isn’t getting enough credit for breaking that mold, but it’s a distinction viewers may soon cherish. ~ theatlantic.com
