Don't get up when those credits start rolling after "Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2." Director James Gunn revealed on Twitter that -- contrary to one report -- there are not four but five post-credit scenes.
@screenrant Well, five, actually. 😊— James Gunn (@JamesGunn) April 18, 2017
Early reviews are effusive, with online critics saying the sequel is "MCU at its very best," "a whole heap of fun," and "surprisingly moving." Several used a happy Baby Groot gif to express their reaction.
Some didn't love it as much as the first film, but the overall reaction seems to be a collective thumbs up.
I say without hyperbole: #GotGVol2 is MCU at its very best. Grand adventure with intimate stakes. Uses every damn color in the crayon box. 🌈— Angie J. Han (@ajhan) April 18, 2017
Didn't love #GotGVol2 as much as the 1st but it's still super fun. Really enjoy spending time w/ this kooky family, especially Drax & Groot!— Perri Nemiroff (@PNemiroff) April 18, 2017
Had tons of fun with Guardians of the Galaxy 2. Incredibly funny, beautifully colorful, and great continuations of the heroes. Super happy!— (((Eric Eisenberg))) (@eeisenberg) April 18, 2017
GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY VOL. 2 is exciting, funny, gorgeous & a helluva tearjerker. For many, it will become their new favorite Marvel movie pic.twitter.com/Po4ZOSPs8Q— ErikDavis (@ErikDavis) April 18, 2017
Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 is a whole heap of fun. Gorgeous, a bit mad, and surprisingly emotional. And yes, Baby Groot is everything.— Haleigh Foutch (@HaleighFoutch) April 18, 2017
