GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY 2 and STAR TREK 3 reveal their official titles!
The first movie in a franchise has it easy! The title for the first film is usually obvious, but everything after that requires a bit more creativity. Studios usually take a little more time announcing sequels because of this, but today we got the official titles for Guardians of the Galaxy 2 and Star Trek 3!
Many fans weren’t too sure if the title image was real when director James Gunn first posted it, but he was quick to clear things up.
Okay, I'm not being sarcastic, guys. Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 IS truly the title. https://t.co/ooQw1iEG0s

Vol. 2 clearly refers to Peter Quill’s second Awesome Mix, but it doesn’t give too much away regarding the plot. Knowing how many theories and comic book possibilities exist, perhaps Marvel is still trying to maintain an iota of mystery.
Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 is out May 5, 2017.
On the Star Trek front, director Justin Lin confirmed the title for the next film, the third in the franchise!
