Director James Gunn commented on a concept art image revealed by Empire by saying: “That’s an Abilisk, a multi-dimensional being, and the Guardians have been hired to fight him.”
“Multi-dimensional”? That seems to tie into the bailiwick of a certain Sorcerer Supreme that is about due to make his debut. Can we say, “Crossover”?
And check out the wee little Groot! Gunn says: “Obviously, Baby Groot is much different than Groot in the comics. He’s not just grown Groot; he’s, y’know, different … Don’t expect Baby Groot to do too much changing in the second movie.” As long as he stays that cute and can rock to the ’80s, that’s fine with me.
