Dave Bautista's Drax the Destroyer turned out to be a highlight in a film with many highlights, with the wrestler-turned-thespian selling the character's physicality and dry humor with a grace that you wouldn't suspect from a WWE superstar. So, it's not that surprising that new internet buzz suggests that his Marvel deal is currently being restructured to ensure his involvement in future films, specifically 'The Avengers 3.'
Guardians of the Galaxy 2
These are a few of the potential villains who could rear their ugly heads in 'Guardians of the Galaxy 2.' Some feel like sure things, others are longshots and some may be prove impossible for legal reasons, but each of them would give Star-Lord, Gamora, Drax, Rocket and Groot enough conflict to sustain a two hour movie.
While 'Guardians of the Galaxy' was able to pleasantly surprise people with how good it is, now all eyes are on 'Guardians of the Galaxy 2' and whether it can live up to the original. One thing we've all wondered about the sequel is whether the Guardians would be introduced to any Earth-bound heroes, or vice versa. Could there be any new members of the Guardians of the Galaxy?

This left me slightly confused in the theater considering Quill's father in the comics - J'son - was widely known and largely uninteresting. But, director James Gunn is going on the record as saying that 'Guardians of the Galaxy 2' will veer from comic book canon and create a new identity for Peter Quill, including a new dad. So, who is Star-Lord's father?
When it was announced that Josh Brolin would be the actor behind the villainous "Mad Titan" Thanos in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, you were hard-pressed to find anyone with a bad thing to say about it. You don't complain when an actor as good as Brolin takes on one of the most famous and powerful comic book supervillains of all time. In true Marvel Studios fashion, the actor has remained fairly quiet about his work on the character, but he recently spilled the first details about the part and his role in the Marvel movies.

Marvel Studios certainly brought their A-game to Hall H at Comic-Con tonight, and while the panel was mostly focused around their 2015 releases ('Ant-Man' and 'Avengers 2' -- not too shabby), they did have some special surprises in store -- like confirmation of 'Guardians of the Galaxy 2' and an official release date.
During an interview with our own Mike Ryan, Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige, who also producers the films in the MCU, revealed that Nova/Richard Rider was originally part of an earlier draft of 'Guardians of the Galaxy' before getting cut. Does this mean we'll see the character pop up in future sequels of James Gunn's space opera? According to Feige, it's a strong possibility, but what needs to happen beforehand?
It's superhero news mania over at Comic-Con 2014, and ahead of tomorrow's official Marvel Studios panel in Hall H comes word that director James Gunn will indeed be returning to write and direct a 'Guardians of the Galaxy' sequel -- as if it could happen any other way.
Earlier this week, Marvel announced their schedule through 2019 and it included...well, a lot of dates. So far, there are few titles actually announced, but Marvel president Kevin Feige at least has hinted at what we can expect by revealing that each year, for the next five years, will have one sequel and one original film
