Writer and director James Gunn has confirmed he has completed the final draft of the script for 'Guardians of the Galaxy 2'

The script for 'Guardians of the Galaxy 2' is complete.

Writer and director James Gunn has confirmed he has finished writing the highly-anticipated sequel to the 2014 Marvel movie.

Sharing a picture of the front page of the script where the date of the final draft is clearly shown as January 10, he wrote: "Coming to you presently, Chris Pratt, Zoe Saldana, Dave Bautista (Batista), Michael Rooker, Sean Gunn, Vin Diesel (sic)".

In a comment to a fan later on, he added: "I always make very tiny changes along the way, but this is essentially the final draft."

Meanwhile, the 45-year-old filmmaker also teased a few new characters when he was asked why Bradley Cooper's name had been omitted from the list.

He shared: "Bradley [Cooper] and Karen [Gillen] are not on FB. Also had to leave a couple off this list who haven't been officially announced. (sic)"

And James previously revealed the new movie will "focus more intensely on some of the characters".

He said: "It's both a bigger movie and a smaller movie because we focus more intensely on some of the characters. We get to learn a lot more about fathers in the second movie, and we focus a lot on that."

The gang are back, with a rollicking plot involving stolen batteries and Ego (Russell) who may or may not be the long-lost dad of Peter Quill (Pratt). It’s very CGI-heavy, sometimes tiringly so, but the humour still charms and the finale picks it up after a sluggish second act.
