Official Synopsis for Doctor Strange and Guardians of the Galaxy Vol 2

Today Marvel released the first official synopsis for Doctor Strange (due out November ) and Guardians of the Galaxy Vol.2 (May 5, 2017).  Check them out below.

Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2:

“Set to the backdrop of ‘Awesome Mixtape #2,’ Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 continues the team’s adventures as they traverse the outer reaches of the cosmos. The Guardians must fight to keep their newfound family together as they unravel the mysteries of Peter Quill’s true parentage. Old foes become new allies and fan-favorite characters from the classic comics will come to our heroes’ aid as the Marvel cinematic universe continues to expand.”

Doctor Strange:

“Set to the backdrop of ‘Awesome Mixtape #2,’ Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 continues the team’s adventures as they traverse the outer reaches of the cosmos.

Old foes become new allies and fan-favorite characters from the classic comics will come to our heroes’ aid as the Marvel cinematic universe continues to expand.”

Nothing new in the Doctor Strange synopsis, it seems like a straight forward description of Strange’s origin and doesn’t provide any info about any of the characters in the film.  The Guardians one is a bit more interesting.  While it has been hinted in previous rumors or interviews, the official synopsis formally states that an old foe will be joining the team.  Nebula is confirmed to be in the movie but I doubt she’ll be switching sides.  My money would be on Yondu assisting the team in the sequel.  Also, and this has been talked about at length with many rumors circling online about what character it might be, but the synopsis once again suggests we’ll be discovering who is Peter Quill’s father (played by Kurt Russell).

Potential spoilers ahead, if you don’t want to have the surprise of who Quill’s father is spoiled (or rather possibly spoiled because this hasn’t been confirmed) before seeing the movie, skip past this paragraph.  The rumors for who Russell could be playing have ranged from Captain Marvel to Adam Warlock.  All we know is that director James Gunn stated that it would differ from Quill’s parentage in the comics.  Either way just having Russell in the film is a plus and Gunn back on board to direct a sequel to his surprise hit is all good news.
