London: A sequel to Marvel`s upcoming `Guardians of the Galaxy` is reportedly in the works.
`Guardians of the Galaxy` will star Chris Pratt, Dave Bautista and Bradley Cooper as a group of intergalactic misfits who band together when targeted by the powerful villain Ronan, reported Digital Spy.
The movie is a part of Marvel`s Phase Two series of films, and now a sequel could come as part of the company`s Phase Three.
The `Guardians of the Galaxy` sequel could fill the May 6, 2016 release date which was previously announced for an untitled project by Marvel.
Marvel has revealed that director Edgar Wright`s `Ant-Man` will lead off the company`s Phase Three in July 2015.
A sequel`s release is reportedly being timed to follow several months after the premiere of a `Guardians of the Galaxy` cartoon on Disney XD in the autumn of 2015.
`Guardians of the Galaxy` will hit theatres on August 1 in the US and the UK.
