Infinity War Countdown: Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2

The sequel to the surprise smash success of Guardians of the Galaxy is an interesting case to say the least. It is one of the more divisive films in the MCU, given that some people love the film as a great sequel to the first, while others think this is a mediocre follow up at…
