Guardians of the Galaxy: James Gunn shares photo comparing cast to their stand-ins

James Gunn may be hard at work on Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2, but the director recently took some time to share a few behind-the-scenes shots from the original film on Twitter.

Gunn tweeted a photo comparing a finished scene from the 2014 film — where Star-Lord, Rocket, Groot, Drax, and Gamora break out of prison — to a photo of the crew’s stand-ins. While Zoe Saldana and Dave Bautista’s stand-ins for Gamora and Drax look a lot like the final on-screen characters (green skin and red tattoos included), there’s something a little… off about Rocket and Groot.

Also, where do we get one of those Groot hats?

 

Earlier this month, Gunn shared the first teaser trailer and poster for the upcoming Guardians sequel, featuring all five Guardians along with Yondu (Michael Rooker) and Nebula (Karen Gillan). In addition to the returning cast, Vol. 2 newcomers include Pom Klementieff, who plays the alien Mantis, and Kurt Russell, who’s on board as Star-Lord’s father, Ego the Living Planet.

Guardians Vol. 2 will hit theaters on May 5, 2017.
