San Diego, CA (The Hollywood Times) 07/23/2016 – The stage introduction for Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 panel started off with a lively exchange between bad guys, better known as the Ravagers.  The stars of the movie then joined the stage and new footage was shown, specially put together by director James Gunn for Comic-con fans.  Hall H attendees were thrilled as Baby Groot stole their hearts as it made its way (with much moxie) alongside Chris Pratt, Dave Bautista, Zoe Saldana, and Michael Rooker.  Also shown in the trailer is an appearance by Sylvester Stallone which pleasantly surprised the fans.
