Everyone’s favorite Guardians of the Galaxy are back in Volume Two – continuing the teams adventures as they travel the cosmos using their newly acquired fame to get lucrative mercenary work.

We are a little less than a year away from the release of Guardian of the Galaxy Vol. 2 but that hasn’t stopped the internet from speculating on who will show up in the film. It seems that in every interview with the director James Gunn he is asked if we will see an appearance of any of our favorite Avengers in the sequel to the 2014 surprise Marvel hit. And so far he has claimed that we would not.
Has this maybe changed?
On Friday while on the set of Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 Gun posted on his Facebook page a picture of him holding up Thor’s famous hammer, Mjolnir, with the caption “Getting ready to hang a painting.”
As soon as this picture hit the internet speculation began that we would actually be seeing an appearance from the hammer wilding Avenger in Guardians of the Galaxy. And in response to the internet catching on fire over this Gun later took to his Twitter account commenting on the picture that “My statements I’ve made a hundred times are still accurate.”
So which is it Gunn? Will we not be seeing Thor in Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2, and you just like watching the internet burn? Or is he actually showing up in the film, and you like watching the internet burn?
What do you think?
Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 will be hitting theaters everywhere May 5, 2017.
