The Guardians of the Galaxy trilogy will have one overarching storyline, according to writer and director James Gunn.
With the second film just days away from hitting cinemas, Gunn said that it's his intention that the three movies will form a cohesive "whole".
"I think really that the three movies work together as a whole," he told Entertainment Weekly. "They're going to tell one story.
"[Vol. 2] is the story of this iteration of the Guardians of the Galaxy, and we're going to get to know the characters even better in the same way we got to know them much better in this film than the first one."
Gunn was recently confirmed to be directing the third movie, and he explained it was important to him that he had a vision for the trilogy.
"I wouldn't have said yes if I didn't have a fairly clear idea of where we were going and what we were going to do," he said.
"I'm not a guy that's just going to do it if I don't have a vision for it. So, I'm very excited."
Guardians of the Galaxy vol. 2 brings back Chris Pratt, Zoe Saldana, Dave Bautista, Vin Diesel, Bradley Cooper, Michael Rooker and Karen Gillan.
Elizabeth Debicki will play Ayesha, who has some beef with the Guardians. And you can also expect to see Sylvester Stallone briefly, in what Gunn's described as "a very very key, important role".
The Marvel movie opens in the UK on April 28, 2017, and in the US on May 5, 2017. Watch a trailer below:
