The director of Guardians of the Galaxy James Gunn today announced on his Facebook page that the sequel to the film does have its own title, this comes after a number of fans already guessed the title, and the Marvel chief Kevin Feige accidentally mentioned it to the press.

The film will be named Guardians of the Galaxy: Awesome Mix Vol.2.

Yes, the official titles 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.

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 to badly to give you props at the time, but knew I had to wait.

For Kevin to mess up. Haha.

Gunn also revealed that the film will be a more emotionally-charged film about fathers, with deeper exploration of Groot, Rocket, Peter Quill, Drax and Gamora.

Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 is set for a May 5, 2017 release.
