Guardians of the Galaxy 2 story is "Risky"

We already know that James Gunn has a plan for Guardians of the Galaxy 2, and that he’s writing the script. But we don’t really know what exactly it will be. Don’t expect to find anything in the comics though, because the director confirmed that the story is new, original, and not based on anything.

Gunn also explains that when he shared his idea for the sequel with Marvel they said, “Whoa, that’s risky.”

This is an exciting concept. Gunn has proven himself with the first movie and it will be nice for old and new fans alike to walk into the cinema completely oblivious to the story that's about to unfold. Whilst Marvel's response was that it would be risky, I wouldn't for a second think that that means that they don't trust Gunn enough to pull it off for them.
