One of the best things about Guardians of the Galaxy was the soundtrack. After all, mixtapes have been a big part of its selling point and within the framework of the film itself.
Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 isn’t holding back on its repertoire of great songs, either. In fact, it may be upping its game, as heard in the official trailer for the sequel.
On Twitter, director James Gunn was asked whether or not all of the trailer songs will be on the film’s soundtrack. Gunn said that, although he wishes they all were, some won’t be making it into the movie.
“All of them are from my short lists for songs I’d LIKE to fit in the movie. But not all of them are in the movie…”
