Though their mission is successful, the ever naughty Rocket decided to keep a couple of the batteries for himself landing the gang in serious trouble and being chased by Ayesha's army.

Guardians Of The Galaxy Vol 2 is out this week
Following up a massive hit like 2014's Guardians of the Galaxy is a daunting task. And while writer-director James Gunn had the main responsibility to make the sequel bigger and better, the returning cast members were aware of the stakes.
Chris Pratt in Guardians Of The Galaxy Vol. 2
Leading man Chris Pratt says that there was a big difference between making the first movie and this one. "Yeah, it's a different type of pressure that we're under now," he says. "Before, the pressure was that no one knows you, so what's it going to be like to be the first Marvel movie that fails? I can't tell you how many times I answered that question. It was like, 'Oh God, this is not looking good.' So now that pressure is off, because it's like, hey, we've got a built-in audience! People really liked it. But I think the pressure we're feeling now is how do we do the same thing in terms of wowing an audience, getting people to come in and have their expectations defied. The pressure was on now to do the same thing, which is surprise you and do something different."

For now at least...
While 'Guardians of the Galaxy' fans are eagerly anticipating some kind of romantic moment to happen between Peter Quill and Gamora, Zoe Saldana has different ideas about their relationship. According to her, love is the last thing on the cards for her feisty character.

Saving the world brought the Guardians together as friends, as we are about to see in 'Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2', but it was clear that Chris Pratt's character Peter Quill felt something different for one of his newfound teammates. However, love isn't something that Gamora is all too familiar with; she's already having enough trouble trying to find love for herself after her past wrongdoings.

Can you guess who our favourite 'Guardians Of The Galaxy' character is?
With 'Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2' well on the way, we order the Guardians of the original movie from best to nearly best before their newest members join the ranks. Of course, Groot has been replaced by Baby Groot, and Yondu Udonta and Nebula are apparently about to join this force for good - though they haven't given us much reason to like them yet. Also, Mantis is another forthcoming addition, who we expect will steal our hearts very soon.
'Guardians of the Galaxy' has some of Marvel's best characters
1. Groot - He's a tree of little words, but he also sacrificed himself to save his friends, most of which he had only known a short time. Also, he becomes Baby Groot after that sacrifice - and he is the character that we're all excited to meet in the forthcoming 'Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2'. Voiced by Vin Diesel, he is the most innocent and the most loving of all the Guardians.

Pratt, now one of the most lucrative names in Hollywood, spoke about how he almost missed out on his breakout role in 'Moneyball' six years ago because of his weight.
Blockbuster star Chris Pratt has revealed details about the casting decision that ended up changing his life in a new interview.
The 37 year old actor, the star of Jurassic World, Guardians of the Galaxy and Passengers, told the February issue of Vanity Fair that he was almost turned down for his breakout movie role in Moneyball as because he was “too fat”.
Pratt had previously made his name as the overweight musician Andy Dwyer in acclaimed comedy series ‘Parks and Recreation’, but he auditioned for the part of Oakland A’s first baseman and catcher Scott Hatteberg in 2011’s Moneyball, which went on to receive multiple Oscar nominations.
