Avengers: Infinity War might not be out in theaters until next year, but filming is already underway. Speaking with the Toronto Sun, Chris Pratt, who will next be seen in the upcoming Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2, is confident that it won’t disappoint fans and that it’ll give them exactly what they’ve want.
“It’s exactly what the fans want. I’ve heard over and over from people, ‘When are the Guardians going to meet up with the Avengers?’ I was never sure how that would happen or if that would happen, but then they announced it and called us and told us it was happening. We’ve shot most of it — my stuff — and I can tell you, the fans are not going to be disappointed. It’s going to be really freaking cool. It’s been a long time coming. This is a decade’s worth of deep storytelling that all leads up to this thing.”
Avengers: Infinity War is the first time the entire Marvel Cinematic Universe will collide. The Guardians of the Galaxy will meet the Avengers and their interactions are surely something to look forward to. Also, it’ll wrap up the infinity stones thread that’s been tying all of the MCU films together.
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.
Directed by James Gunn, Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 stars Chris Pratt, Zoe Saldana, Dave Bautista, Micheal Rooker, Kurt Russell, and the voices of Vin Diesel and Bradley Cooper.
The film is out in theaters May 5, 2017.

5 Ways Marvel Studios Could Follow & Top ‘Infinity War’
Marvel Studios has been building towards a massive confrontation with Thanos since 2012 in The Avengers. Now that Earth’s Mightest Heroes, and the Guardians of the Galaxy, are finally gearing up to take him down, it seems Marvel is in a bit of a quandary. Obviously they’re not going to just give up on the most successful film franchise of all time, so where do they go from there?
Well, comic fans, you’ve come to the right place for answers. Marvel has a lot of stories to choose from over their 75 year history, but not all of them are right for the big screen. Also, some of our favorite Marvel characters, like Wolverine or the Fantastic Four, have their film rights owned by rival studios, meaning we shouldn’t expect to see them team up with Iron Man or Captain America any time soon.
