Instead, it was funny, satirical take on the superhero genre. The film had great laugh out loud moments and an equally amazing soundtrack to boot.

Given the film's victory with both critics and at the box office, a sequel was almost immediately in the cards, and now it seems Marvel has another crowd-pleaser on its hands.

Vol. 2 scopes the life of a dysfunctional family of intergalactic outcasts and their unwitting involvement in saving the universe from almost certain annihilation.

A recent press screening in the US had critics and journalists emerging from the theatre to share their initial thoughts on the sequel, with most of them offering plenty of praise for the film and its place in the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 releases in India on 5 May.
