Marvel’s visit to SDCC ’16 has been absolutely killer so far but you knew James Gunn and the cast of Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 would NOT be out done.

The panel opened with director and social media hype-master James Gunn erupting on stage and, eventually, trying to dance with Kevin Feige. An untimely interruption by GotG Vol. 2 villain Taserface and a group of Ravagers quickly brought that to a halt, however!

After Taserface spent some time abusing the Ravagers, the Guardians were led onto the stage by Chris Pratt, met by jeers from the Ravagers. The entire main cast, including newcomers Elizabeth Debicki, who was revealed to be playing Ayesha, Pom Klementieff and the legendary Kurt Russell were on hand, to the delight of everyone including the Ravagers!

Following the cast intro, Gunn set the stage for a clip from the recently finished film. While we don’t expect much of what was shown at SDCC to be released to the public, the general consensus from those in attendance was that the clip was fun and in the vein of the original film, showing a prison break involving Baby Groot, Rocket and Yondu!

Immediately after, Michael Rooker showed up on stage in full Yondu gear, showing that he will have his full Centaurian fin from the comics in the new film!

In an interesting reveal, it seems that Klementieff’s Mantis, who retains her empathic powers from the comics, is an alien who has spent her entire life with Kurt Russell‘s character, who Russel called “great” though he would not reveal his role. The panel did, however, give some background to Debicki’s Ayesha. In the film she’s apparently the leader of a group of people called the Sovereign who turn to the Guardians for help.

Just as the fireworks seemed to be over, another clip was shown revealing Sylvester Stallone and that Russell will be playing Ego, the Living Planet and Star-Lord’s father! What????? Whoa, Gunn…whoa!

As expected, Gunn and the Guardians rocked the house! While they didn’t give away much about the film’s plot, they seemed to entertain the audience and set up what is likely to be a huge response to the first teaser, likely released this fall.
