Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 is finally just around the corner, and while you're kept busy dodging the deluge of spoilers that are spilling online, what better time to consider those last-minute rumours that just might come true?
Though the Guardians sequel is said to largely be a standalone offering, fans are still eager to see how it moves these characters forward and nods towards the bigger picture of the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
With so many mysteries surrounding Star-Lord's origins, the true motives of Kurt Russell's Ego the Living Planet and a number of long-rumoured cameos, it's safe to say there are still plenty of theories and possibilities for fans to chew over before the movie hits screens.
