While James Gunn, the director of ‘Guardians of the Galaxy,’ has been unofficially announced to be helming the sequel to the film, we don’t have to wait to hear what what he wants to do! We already know that Marvel has put ‘Guardians of the Galaxy 2‘ on the table and now we know what direction the film will go in.
While he doesn’t hit at the larger plot, Gunn does focus on some of the characters and one big piece of character development that he would like to explore:
“I know a lot of where I want to go. I have a lot of ideas for stories and characters that are going to appear, and there are documents written up, that some people have, about Peter Quill’s father and his relationship, a lot of stuff about Yondu and a lot of stuff about Drax that nobody knows. There are a lot of things that are part of the overall schematic that already exist, not to mention a lot of stuff about all of the cultures. There’s a lot of stuff about Xandarian and Kree culture that I’ve written down or I have in my head, as well as Krylorians and Ravagers …
Kevin Feige has stuff. I wrote up a lot. He knows all the stuff and if I died tomorrow they could go make a movie. They could write the story of Peter Quill’s father and it would all be there. I think Yondu is a very important character, a really important character in this universe, and I think Nebula is really important too and so I think we’ll see more of both of those characters.”
So it looks like even if Gunn is hit by a bus tomorrow that the studio knows what direction he’d like to take the film. While he isn’t officially set to direct it, yet, I’m glad to see that he is excited to continue the cosmic side of Marvel which he’s been made look amazing so far!
So it looks as if we’d be seeing more interactions between Star-Lord and Yondu, more Gamora, more Drax, more of the Nova Corps, and more of the Kree. I like the sound of that! I also think that exploring more of the father and son dynamic could prove interesting — especially if they follow who Quill’s actual father is from the comics.
Are you excited for a sequel to this science fiction themed comic adaptation? Do you think we’ll be seeing more cosmic titled announced in the future? Share your thoughts below true believers!
