Gunn already stated that Guardians 2 will be a story about Pete's father, there will be less characters, doesn't have any interests in Infinity War, and (if I remember correctly) no Thanos. You can't have Adam Warlock without Thanos and if they do add him, he will have no purpose. However if he is the dad then by all means.
Also as far as sources say, Glenn Close and John C. Reilly haven't signed onto Guardians 2 so we might not see the Nova Corps.
Adam Warlock may very well be the character Gunn is referring to, when he stated that he had to take the same character out from both his Guardian's scripts. Then again that could of been Mantis too.
If they are following the comics, we know Adam Warlock has the Soul Gem. Therefore there is plenty of room for him in Infinity War along with the Nova Corps bcuz they too have a Stone. Infinity War is about the Infinity Stones after all. I wouldn't be surprised if either Infinity War Part 1 or 2 starts with Nebula's onslaught on Xandar.
In latest reports, now they are saying there will be one new character. The new character is a favorite Marvel character of his (confirmed by him on tweeter) and (by rumor theory) who also isn't apart of the Guardians team in the comics. Seeing that he loves the Spaceknights, it could be Ikon.
: Bug is a character he cant' use. Rom is
: another. Spaceknights would be great but
: doubtful if they'd play a major role since
: the Nova Corps are the main intergalactic
: peacekeeping force. But as a big Rom
: Spaceknight fan, sure, any mention of
: Galador and spaceknights would be an awesome
: easter egg.
: I assume Adam Warlock and Mantis for GOTG 2.
: As for any chance of Richard
: Rider...anything can happen. Gunn can say
: one thing but Kevin Feige and Disney can
: tell Gunn to add Rich if they really wanted
: to. But, it seems they are trustng Gunn once
: again and so Gunn will pretty much have his
: way. So, most likely a negative on Rich but
: I think we'll still see the Nova Corps, what
: they've been up to, and perhaps hints of
: Xandar's fate in Infinity War as I believe
: Thanos and Nebula have the eventual
: destruction of the Nova Corps in thier
: sights. Going by the comics since Nebula had
: a deep hatred of Xandar because of her
: father's fate at the hands of Rohmann Dey.
: Maybe we'll see a flashback of Zorr killed
: by the Nova Crops and cameos of Kraa and
: Xira, Zorr's brother and sister?
: Its probably best that a Richard Rider Nova
: film be a stand alone film.
: I remember Sam Raimi saying he'd never use
: Venom in the Spider-Man movies he was doing,
: yet unfortunately we ended up with Venom in
: the third and final installment and it
: pretty much ruined the franchise. I
: personally didn't think it totally ruined
: the trilogy for me but yeah, SM3 certainly
: was no doubt the weakest.

: Well, in the article quoted there he said he
: removed the character and that it was one he
: loved and hoped to work with in the future.
: There are two quote blocks. The top one
: says there will be a new character.
: The second one is clearly about Nova since
: we all know that he was the big character
: written out.
: But I don't think the "new
: character" introduced has to be the
: same as the character he talks about writing
: out. I think he just used it as an example.
: In fact, he says he would "love to
: work" with that (Nova) character in the
: future. That means he has no immediate
: plans to work with the character.
: If we read carefully, I think we can sadly
: assume that Nova is not that new character
: introduced in GotG2.

: Definitely not Nova since James Gunn hated
: him. But luckily he will be using 2008
: version cast (Mantis, Adam Warlock, and/or
: Quasar) and hated Bendis' "Avengers in
: Space" comic.

: According to an article in Comicbook.com,
: James Gunn said that a new character will be
: feature in the GOTG 2 movie.
: 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
: 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
: Here is the link: GOTG 2 will have a new
: character, but another new character didn't
: make the cut
