I’m pretty sure we all realized pretty early on that if it was successful, a crossover between the ‘Guardians of the Galaxy’ and ‘The Avengers‘ was inevitable and now the cast of ‘Guardians’ is chiming in on the subject. While I suspect that the crossover will revolve around Thanos and a certain Infinity Gauntlet, there are hints that it won’t be full sets of either team when they eventually do meet up.
I believe that would imply it does not revolve around the Mad Titan, but only time will tell. According to Gunn:
“We talked about all sorts of possibilities [for a crossover] and I kind of know what the basic plan is. That could or could not include a couple of Avengers and a couple of Guardians meeting up, or all of the Avengers and all of the Guardians. But, we do inhabit the same universe and they’re pretty big personalities that are likely to, at some point or another, run into each other.”
Vin Diesel chimed in with:
“I think there’s going to be huge fans of the Guardians and there are huge fans of the Avengers and I think the discussion has already been had. I think the audience may demand something like that.”
However Chris Pratt feels a little differently:
“If you go from five characters and you add another five characters, that’s ten characters. That can be very difficult. That being said, Marvel knows their stuff. Knows there business. And I see this, rather than taking the worlds that already exist and putting them together, this opens up doors into brand new worlds. We take characters we didn’t even know existed in the four corners of the universe and we see their stories.”
There are a lot of galactic menaces that could require a crossover between the two or even just say Iron Man hanging out in space with the ‘Guardians of the Galaxy’ which the current story line has evolved from in the comics. With the huge cast involved in the ‘Infinity Gauntlet’ story line it would almost make more sense for them to use ‘The Avengers’, the ‘Guardians of the Galaxy’, ‘The Defenders‘, and anyone else that has made a cameo or been referenced by the time that battle comes to the big screen.
