He said this new character was originally written into the first movie but got taken out because the character made the movie "too busy."
Could this character be Richard Rider/Nova? The script for the GOTG 1 movie did include Richard Rider but he was taken out because he would take the focus away from Peter Quill/Starlord.
However, I have doubt that this new character is Richard Rider because Gunn did say Rider will not be in the GOTG 2 movie and he does not like Rider's helmet. This doubt is further reinforced by him saying that the character is a character he "like a lot and hope to work with in the future...".
We will find out who this new character is soon because he said he will release the information.
