For those of us who were even more enamored than we thought we’d be by a talking raccoon and a slightly-less-wordy walking tree, Guardians of the Galaxy was an absolute delight. Luckily, all of our favorites are returning for Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2, and we’ll get to see our favorite Vin Diesel-voiced sapling once again, now quite a bit diminished in size from his last appearance. For the first film, Diesel learned how to say his character’s recurring line “I am Groot” in six different languages, and now he says the director of the sequel is making him learn almost three times that many.

When it comes to superhero movies, women are often relegated to the margins, sculpted as one-dimensional, or exploited as objects of desire. Look at any cover of a superhero film featuring a woman and you’ll find her in poses that emphasize her body or show her as a damsel in distress love interest. We’re only just getting DC’s Wonder Woman next year, but Marvel Studios is also looking to make efforts improving female representation.

Are you sitting down? You might want to be seated when you read this. You should also be warned of potential spoilers for Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2, so if you’re the sort of Marvel fan who likes to go in knowing as little as possible (how do you live without the internet??), you might not want to read on. But if you’re curious to learn more about Baby Groot, James Gunn has revealed something very interesting, and a little sad?

James Gunn Has a Special 'Groot Version' of the ‘Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2’ Script

“I am Groot.” With the exception of one small variation, this is the only thing we hear from Vin Diesel’s Groot throughout Guardians of the Galaxy. What makes this such a funny running joke isn’t the fact that he only says the one phrase, though; it’s the fact that Rocket Raccoon understands him perfectly, unearthing complicated sentiments and emotions from three simple words. Translating Groot’s dialogue would be like un-bleeping the profanity in an episode of South Park: you pretty much already know what Groot is saying, and the jokes just work better this way.

It won’t be too much longer (November, to be exact) before we see the first trailer for Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2, but to help tide you over, James Gunn has debuted some new concept art — okay, concept art isn’t a trailer, but this particular image does offer a sneak peek at a particularly ferocious new alien villain battling the core Guardians crew, including a ridiculously adorable Baby Groot.

This week, details emerged that actress Zendaya would be playing an updated version of Mary Jane Watson in the upcoming Spider-Man: Homecoming. While many people greeted this news with good cheer, a very vocal minority of people had some pretty nasty things to say about the changes made to their beloved character. Yesterday, James Gunn, the director of Guardians of the Galaxy, took to Facebook to share his nuanced thoughts regarding the controversy.

If any Marvel movie director had a take on long-awaited crossovers, it’d be Guardians of the Galaxy boss James Gunn. The Vol. 2 director is only now preparing to share his interstellar heroes with The Avengers, but even Gunn doubts we’ll see the other Earth-based TV heroes taking part in the great Infinity War.

We’ve known for quite some time that Thanos won’t be appearing in Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2, which will instead focus on Star-Lord’s dad (Kurt Russell) and a new set of problems — including Ayesha and some very unhappy Ravagers. But it looks like the big angry purple guy isn’t the only one who (literally) won’t be in the picture, as director James Gunn has confirmed that the sequel doesn’t feature any of those pesky Infinity Stones, either.

In recent years, studios have begun putting their special Comic-Con teasers and sizzle reels online in an effort to combat piracy — although the footage is meant to be a Comic-Con exclusive, they’d rather let the fans at home see it the way it was intended instead of watching a blurry, shaky version that someone recorded on a cell phone. Even still, there are some pieces of footage that don’t make their way online, like the Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 teaser. If you’re wondering why you haven’t been able to see it, James Gunn has an answer.
