Marvel was so confident in the first Guardians of the Galaxy that a sequel was ordered before the original premiered. Despite being the least well known of the Cinematic Universe heroes to date, the motley band struck an instant chord with audiences, and James Gunn eagerly returned to direct the second outing for Peter Quill and his crew of galactic adventurers.
‘Marvel: Creating the Cinematic Universe’ screens Guardians of the Galaxy Vol.2 2017 during the last week of the exhibition, then view never-before-seen costumes and props.
‘The fate of the universe lies on your shoulders. Now, whatever you do, don’t push this button. Because that will set off the bomb immediately, and we’ll all be dead. Now repeat back what I just said.’
‘I am Groot.’
