‘Guardians Of The Galaxy’ Concept Art Shows The Guardians In Action

GOTG2 Logo

Director James Gunn shared concept art for Guardians of the Galaxy Volume 2 online today. The artwork will appear in the upcoming issue of Empire Magazine.  The concept art shows the Guardians engaging battle with some sort of space-dinosaur type of creature.  Empire calls it “the product of a particularly successful Tinder date between an Exogorth and a Sarlacc.” James Gunn calls the creature an “Abilisk.”

This is a nice nod to the comic book where many times members of the Guardians would don jet packs for when they had to do battle either in outer space or in the upper atmosphere. It seems that the upcoming film will be incorporating that from the comic book. In the picture Star-Lord, Rocket, Gamora, and Drax are flying towards the battle with the monster. Baby Groot however, seems to be falling oblivious to the action going on.  Missing is the new Guardians, Yondu, Nebula, and Mantis. This probably might mean that the scene is something that happens early in the film before the team gets bigger. Perhaps they are off on their own adventure. Hopefully, the upcoming issue of Empire Magazine will show more cool items like this!

Guardians of the Galaxy Vol 2 arrives in theaters May 5, 2017.

    I was thinking this may be the opening sequence. A fun way to show the team doing what they do before the main plot kicks off.

    Could be the mummy or daddy of the slug things from Gunn’s Slither 😛 lol

    For anyone wondering, Gunn also confirmed on Twitter that they can breathe b/c they’re not in space. It is simply night time on whatever planet this fight is taking place on.

      Ohhh, is that what he said. Got it.

      Never mind that you can see the space ship in the background. Anything the Marvel folks say, must be the truth.

        NIght time, outter space, whatever! That image looks awesome

        How did I know that your salty @ss was gonna be here, grasping at straws as always…

      • G-Man

        I mean I thought it was space too, but why would Gunn be compelled to lie about the setting of this scene? Regardless, it will be in the film so we’ll see whether or not it is in space or just night time on a planet. And yeah Star-Lord flew in space with his jetpack, but neither Gamora or him could breathe without his mask. So idk man. Whatever you want to believe is up to you I guess.
