Director James Gunn talks GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY

3 min read


With the latest Marvel film, Thor: The Dark World, out now, Phase 2 is starting to shape up towards the next big Avengers flick. We’ve still got some Captain America on the way when he deals with a Winter Soldier, but he’ll be followed soon by the motley crew of the Guardians of the Galaxy.

Speaking to CraveOnline, director James Gunn had some new information to share about the project. Regarding the big bad for this flick, Gunn says that while Avengers tease Thanos will have a presence, it’s Ronan the Accuser that will post the biggest threat to the Guardians:

Thanos is a character in our movie. He works with Ronan. In my movie Ronan works for Thanos, and Ronan is the main bad guy in our film.

Guardians will also have some big sets for those fights to take place in. Like a space-prison so massive, that no one can hear you scream when you drop the space-soap:

We have a prison set that is 350,000 pounds of steel. Our sets are enormous. Anybody who knows me knows I really love the mix of practical and CGI effects and I carried that over into this movie. We have tons and tons of practical effects… I can’t wait for people to see it because it’s astoundingly beautiful.

Sounds like some cool elements coming together for Phase 2. Guardians of the Galaxy stars  Chris Pratt, Dave Bautista, Zoe Saldana, Bradley Cooper, Michael Rooker, Ophelia Lovibond, Benicio Del Toro, Karen Gillan, Djimon Honsou, Gregg Henry, Glenn Close and John C. Reilly. It’s out next year space-August.

Something wrong gentlemen? You come here prepared to read the words of a madman, and instead found a lunatic obsessed with comics, Batman and Raul Julia's M Bison performance in the 1994 Street Fighter movie? Fine! Keep your bio! In fact, now might be a good time to pray to it!
