We may be more than two years away from Guardians of the Galaxy 2, but that’s not going to stop anyone from wondering who is going to appear in Marvel’s next cosmic adventure. There are lots of things to consider, like the identity of Peter Quill’s father, who director James Gunn’s favorite character is, and what new superheroes will join the fray. Over the weekend, Gunn participated in a Q&A session and shed a little bit of light on the film, including at least one character who won’t appear.
When Marvel made that big announcement laying out Phase 3 of their Cinematic Universe (which has since been rearranged due to Spider-Man returning home), one of the new additions was Captain Marvel, who will get her own movie on November 2, 2018. She plays a key part in the deep space side of Marvel’s comics, and many suspected she could show up in Guardians 2. Gunn has said this isn’t the case before, and reiterated that fact this weekend.
