Since the 2014 comic book adaptation “Guardians of the Galaxy” achieved somewhat unexpected success, it’s only natural for Marvel fans to get hyped about the movie’s sequel. Even though they’ll have to wait until mid-2017 for it to come out, at least they now know what it is going to be called.

This update comes from director James Gunn, who uploaded a picture of the cover of the sequel’s script on Facebook. The title clearly reads “Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2.”

This is what he wrote underneath: “Yes, the official title of the sequel to Guardians of the Galaxy is Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2. Kevin Feige recently let the title slip while doing Ant-Man press, which I’m really happy about because God knows I’ve let more than one thing slip accidentally while chattering away on this FB page.”

He continued: “Also, hats off to some intrepid fans who figured out the title a couple of days after I posted the cover page. More than one person guessed Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 – I wanted so badly to give you props at the time, but knew I had to wait. For Kevin to mess up. Haha. PS ANT-MAN PREMIERE TONIGHT AND I AM STOKED!”

Although adding a simple “Vol. 2” to the original title might seem a tad boring, those who are really into the franchise will remember Chris Pratt’s character and his love for his favorite mixtape.

Now that we know the sequel’s name, we’re clear to say that Chris Pratt, Zoe Saldana, Dave Bautista, Vin Diesel, Bradley Cooper, Michael Rooker, and Karen Gillan are returning to their roles for “Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2,” which will arrive to theaters on May 5, 2017.
