Guardians of The Galaxy Vol. 2 sits in a slightly odd position – narratively, chronologically, critically, geographically...
Guardians of The Galaxy Vol. 2 was released about halfway through Phase 3 of the McU, in between Doctor Strange and Spider-Man: Homecoming. However, if you’ve paid close attention to the movie, you’ll know that it sits much earlier in the timeline.
Guardians 2 takes place only a couple of months after Guardians 1, while Baby Groot is still a baby, only 34 years after Peter’s parents met. If you’re watching the McU movies in internal chronological order, Guardians 2 comes immediately after Guardians 1 and before Avengers: Age Of Ultron.
