Before being fired from Marvel Studios, James Gunn was intimately involved with the future of the cosmic side of the Marvel Cinematic Universe and many have wondered what that could mean for ‘Captain Marvel.’ The film was in production before Gunn being forced out of the company by Walt Disney Studios and dealt with the cosmically charged Captain Marvel as well as the alien races the Kree and the Skrulls. On top of that, it also included Lee Pace’s Ronan The Accuser and Djimon Hounsou’s Korath when they were younger, still part of the Kree Empire, and among the land of the living before their lives came to an end at the ‘Guardians of the Galaxy.’
In an earlier interview which was recently released due to what one can only guess was the lifting of an embargo we’ve learned from executive producer Jonathan Schwartz that Gunn didn’t actually have a lot of say on ‘Captain Marvel’ so his firing likely had no real effect on the film:
“”I think he’s read the script, we talked to him about it a little bit. It takes place before a lot of what he’s doing happens, so I’m sure the Skrulls will be a fun toy to play with at some point. But I think we’ve really been able to do our own thing. But we love when James gives input for sure.”
Unfortunately, the Skrulls and the Kree are toys that James Gunn will never have a chance to play with. However, it is good to know that being let go from the film wouldn’t have caused any hiccups or delays in production due to his lack of involvement with it.
Are you sad to hear that James Gunn didn’t have any influence over ‘Captain Marvel’? Do you think he was gearing up to include either the Kree or Skrulls in ‘Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3’? Share your thoughts in the comments below, True Believers!
Set in the 1990s, Marvel Studios’ “Captain Marvel” is an all-new adventure from a previously unseen period in the history of the Marvel Cinematic Universe that follows the journey of Carol Danvers as she becomes one of the universe’s most powerful heroes. While a galactic war between two alien races reaches Earth, Danvers finds herself and a small cadre of allies at the center of the maelstrom.
‘Captain Marvel’ will be flying Higher, Further, Faster onto the big screen on March 8th, 2019!
