MCU Commentary #14 - Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 - “Many a Tentacled Monster-Beast”

Published April 2, 2019

Joe and Todd improvise a makeshift studio to bring you their movie commentary for Guardians of the Galaxy: Volume 2, but not before they debate a Friends reunion, tabloids and Yogurt.

The guys talk about James Gunn's firing (having recorded this before he was rehired). Todd poses the question of how much it would take to leave his wife.

They swoon over the ageless good looks of Kurt Russell and discuss the change of Starlord's Father to Ego, The Living Planet.

Joe and Todd adopt the powers of Ego and make their own planet as they see fit and explain the rights trade between Fox and Marvel that brought a main character to the movie. Todd denies the death of Groot in part 1 and Joe helps justify it with some Marvel Comics Lore.

Joe talks about the ego of actors and a specific example from an old comedy. The prolific careers of certain actors and the lack of time between their jobs is discussed.
