Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 is far removed from the rest of the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Cosmic arm Star-Lord and co. Inhabit is already quite there and his successor James Gunn decided to send it free without the usual global gain is needed. Some elements of the film will probably move Avengers: War Infinity and the five of the post-credits scenes definitely determine the future, but we must do it for all intents and purposes an independent adventure.
There is a time when a little more give a tangible link to The Avengers and the rest of the MCU, at least as far as the site. The movie opens in Missouri in 1980 and shows a young ego fabulous Meredith Quill and plants one of its expansion pods and we will return later in the final act of the movie when Ego activates the device a big blob of unleashed CGI sends to Through the neighboring town which, if Peter Quill had not successfully stopped him, the big rock would be transformed into a part of the living planet.
That’s the kind of thing we’re expecting the Avengers to deal with over the last decade, and in fact there were many who came for a surprise from Iron Man or any other hero. Of course, it would be very unlikely (even without Marvel’s canvas of contracts) as guardians of the galaxy Vol. 2 was, like most MCU films at the time of its actual release. At present, the Avengers are dismantled; Zemo divided them up to Captain America: Civil War, the Cap team sent underground and the Tony team left with a war injured Machine and vision mentally unstable.
However, vol. 2 is set in 2017 – it was put much earlier, which gives a bit of a problem.
The Plot Hole Explained
Thanks to the words of James Gunn and Kevin Feige we respect that Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2, a few months after the original film (to Grand as a small twig) and four years for the Infinity War. This means that the film’s events take place in 2014 (for anyone
who doubts is the year’s label of the two films for that). What is the question of why no one is responding to a Sky attack?
Chronologically, the Flight dating 2014. 2 between Captain America: The Winter Soldier and Avengers: Age of Ultron. The main events on earth at this stage, the effects of Hydra exposure and the fall of S.H.I.E.L.D .; The Avengers had worked to leave the different Hydra cells and recover the Loki Baron Strucker staff (a mission they finish in their second film). Bucky the Cape hunt, Iron Man built his costumes, Thor is on Earth and all the initiative is booming. An explosion of extraterrestrial technology dangerous planet should be on their radar. Especially if Tony still has the infringement vision that leads him to the illegal taking Ultron, he and banner still works on an AI system to maintain the security of the world – he is more in touch with the rest of the world status .
The event seems to go without mention. There is the possibility that the tape of the screen checked between the films but the fact that such a cataclysmic event at the latest was cited by General Ross when chastiseren of the team and the implementation of the Sokovia Accords In the civil war (there is no sign on his world map for Missouri) seems unlikely.
And what of the agents? S.h.i.e.l.d. Even if we can rationalize the Avengers in a certain way, do not worry about the dead arms, Phil Philosco and Co, who are explicitly present to meet difficult to ignore these complaints. Flight. 2 would occur at the beginning of season 2, when they are acclimated to a post-S.H.I.E.L.D. World and that the characters themselves were the most inhumane issue deliberately, as would something like the interest of certainly heavenly interest. Yet no one sleeps an eyelid.
In short, shifting the Big Baby schedule to allow guards would introduce an element of ground conspiracy that conflict with the accepted canon. Whoops.
