While we know that ‘Guardians of the Galaxy 2‘ got pushed up to a new release date, this is one of the first times that James Gunn has mentioned a little of what he’d like to see in the film. Sure we’ve heard that Thanos may not play a big role in it and Peter Quill’s father should show up but now we might have a bit more on what to expect. No plot details or major spoilers here. Just who who Gunn would want to see back.
Aside from the central five characters he’d like to see, Gunn adds these characters:
“Yondu and Kraglin, the Ravagers. And I love Nebula. I think that she is underutilized in the film. I want to see more of her. The Collector.”
I’m sure with ‘Selfie’ having just been cancelled that Karen Gillan would love to hear that a return to her Nebula role and the Marvel Universe might be in her future. Since The Collector is a big supporting player in Phase 3 and in the ‘Infinity War,’ it wouldn’t surprise me if he shows up again. According to Gunn:
“He’ll reappear. I don’t know if he’s gonna [be in] the next one. I do think his story is really compelling, and I think he’s one of those very interesting shades of gray characters.”
For a little insight on how he’s putting every aspect of the film together from the plot to the soundtrack. Gunn did have a fun clarifying comment regarding the sequel:
“I would say the main thing is: Don’t just copy yourself, which is what a lot of sequels do. And in some cases it works. Like James Bond movies. But James Bond is a different type of character. This is many characters. I think Guardians, at the end, is not the structure of a comic book movie, it’s not the structure of an action-adventure, it’s not the structure of a comedy. It’s the structure of a family drama. So how does that play itself out?”
