Gaurdians of the Galaxy 2: NO Captain Marvel

     On a sad note for me, one of my favorite characters of the Marvel Cinematic Universe has been struck off the list of people appearing in James Gunn's Guardians of the Galaxy sequel- Carol Danvers (Captain Marvel).  To be fair though, Marvel did announce she was getting her own film, set to be released July 6, 2018.

         Gunn has already specifically eliminated the possibility of seeing Shi'ar Empire strongman Gladiator, ROM: Spaceknight, Bug, Nova (Richard Rider), and the return of Ronan.  Though he has stated in pre-release junkets for the first film that his favorite Marvel characters are Starhawk and Annihilus.  But because Annihilus is part of Fox's Fantastic Four rights, that is doubtful.  Although he has also hinted at the potential of his favorite character not being male, despite the previous 2 being mentioned.  Hey, tastes change, so maybe he has found a new favorite.

     It's also been mentioned that their will be two women on the main team, which makes me hope for Quasar (Phyla-Vell), but Mantis feels more probable.  Adam Warlock is a highly likely, considering his cocoon was seen in The Collector's possession at the end of Thor: The Dark World.  Heck, even Mar-Vell would be a good fit for Gunn's take on these space hooligans.  Since the film isn't set to hit theaters until May 5th, 2017 we've got plenty of time for some good speculations.
