Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2: Director James Gunn Talks New Cast Member Kurt Russell

guardians of the galaxy vol 2

Earlier today I shared a big update on Marvel's Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2, including the news that Kurt Russell had joined the cast. James Gunn offered some thoughts via social media on why he's so stoked for Russell to come aboard the movie.
"My favorite movie as a small child was The Strongest Man in the World, so I'm glad to announce that, yes, Kurt Russell has joined our cast and, yes, he is more awesome a dude than I ever could have imagined."
Check out Gunn's full comment below.

Official photography on Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 has started, and I couldn't be more stoked. My favorite movie as a small child was The Strongest Man in the World, so I'm glad to announce that, yes, Kurt Russell has joined our cast and, yes, he is more awesome a dude than I ever could have imagined. The last few days around here with him and our other new cast members, Pom Klementieff, Elizabeth Debicki, and Chris Sullivan, have been some of the best of my life. I never thought anyone was missing from our island of misfit toys, but now that these folks are here there feels like there was. Chris Pratt, Zoe Saldana, Dave Bautista, Michael Rooker, Karen Gillan, Vin Diesel, Bradley Cooper, Sean Gunn, and Glenn Close are all returning. We'll have more surprises for you in the coming months. But, for now, this will have to do. I have to get back to set! Have a great day, everybody.
