The Guardians of the Galaxy are also set to appear in the new Avengers movie
By Jay Hunter – James Gunn is no stranger to horror, after all he penned the script to both Dawn of the Dead (2004) and Slither (2006) so now he’s helming possibly the coolest franchise in the world, it’s nice to see he isn’t ditching his roots, as we see new concept art for Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 for an “Abilisk”, which looks like a toothy space octopus (see below).

Earlier this week we found out via Groot himself (Vin Diesel) that the Guardians would be featuring in Avengers: Infinity War, so the group are clearly being integrated with the Marvel Cinematic Universe more aggressively in the run up to the Guardians sequel being released on May 5th, 2017. The movie is also set to star Kurt Russell, along with returning cast members Chris Pratt, Zoe Saldana and Dave Bautista.
