In 2014’s Guardians of the Galaxy, James Gunn introduced the world to a team of miscreants and misfits forced to come together and save the galaxy. To put it bluntly, they’re a bunch of a-holes.

Well, here’s a newsflash: “Guardians of the Galaxy, Vol. 2” pulls that feat off with only a little strain and a belly of genuine emotion. Marvel Studios’ space faring superhero-team-that-isn’t-really-a-superhero-team came together in 2014’s “Guardians of the Galaxy.” James Gunn, along with a screenplay assist from Nicole Sperling, wonderfully demonstrated how a band of characters that were barely known beyond hardcore comic book fans could transform into a band of charismatic and colorful characters that felt strikingly original.

  It might not feel like it — about eight of the damn things are shooting at the minute, not to mention all the TV things — but it’s been six whole months since the last entry in the Marvel Cinematic Universe hit theaters, with “Doctor Strange” way back in November.
