Two Cast Members Not Coming Back For ‘Guardians Of The Galaxy Vol. 2’


Guardians Of The Galaxy Vol. 2 will be released on May 5, 2017 and James Gunn has been slowly announcing new cast members and details surrounding the film but now it appears that the full cast will not be returning.

During a Facebook Q&A, writer/director James Gunn has confirmed that John C. Reilly and Benicio Del Toro will not be returning. While Del Toro will not be returning for the sequel because his character, The Collector, “didn’t fit into Volume 2” the door is not closed on his character in the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

Del Toro is currently working on Star Wars: Episode VIII.

“Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2” is written and directed by James Gunn (“Guardians of the Galaxy,” “Slither”). The film marks the return of the original Guardians, including Chris Pratt (“Jurassic World,” “Guardians of the Galaxy”) as Peter Quill/Star-Lord; Zoe Saldana (“Guardians of the Galaxy,” “Star Trek Into Darkness”) as Gamora; Dave Bautista (“Spectre,” “Guardians of the Galaxy”) as Drax; Vin Diesel (“Guardians of the Galaxy,” “Furious 7”) as the voice of Groot; Bradley Cooper (“Joy,” “American Sniper”) as the voice of Rocket; Michael Rooker (“Guardians of the Galaxy,” “Jumper”) as Yondu; Karen Gillan (“Guardians of the Galaxy,” “The Big Short”) as Nebula; and Sean Gunn (“Guardians of the Galaxy,” “Gilmore Girls”) as Kraglin. New cast members include Pom Klementieff (“Oldboy”), Elizabeth Debicki (“The Great Gatsby,” “Everest”), Chris Sullivan (“The Knick,” “The Drop”) and Kurt Russell (“The Hateful Eight,” “Furious 7”).

Guardians Of The Galaxy Vol. 2 is slated to hit U.S. theaters on May 5, 2017.
