Fans love getting excited about movies. We’ve been doing it the last year for Force Awakens. We did it this past week with Captain America: Civil War. Now we get a chance to do it again with the sequel to Marvel’s 2014 surprise hit Guardians of the Galaxy.
Being a Marvel movie, everyone expected it to do well, but no one could imagine the shooting stars Gamora, Drax, Groot, Rocket, and Star-Lord became. Now they are gearing for a second helping and we have proof that things are well underway thanks to this tweet from Gamora herself, Zoe Saldana.

Here’s Zoe as makeup artists make a mold of her head in preparation for the prosthetics and makeup needed to help her transform into the reformed daughter of Thanos. These pictures not only show how hard that process is, but it shows the patience of Saldana, having to wear that mold for hours on end until it dries while relying on someone else to make sure she’s still able to breathe. I wouldn’t last a minute.
No word on the plot of the new film, but if you head over to James Gunn’s Twitter, he is more than happy to steer you in the right direction.
Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 opens in theaters May 5, 2017.
So what do you think? Are you as excited for Vol. 2 as we are? Do you agree that Gamora and Uhura could take the tag team belts regardless of who the champs are? Let me know on Twitter or sound off in the comments below.
