James Gunn knows exactly what’s going to happen in Guardians of the Galaxy 2. He just hasn’t written it yet. To help promote the December 9 Blu-ray release of Guardians of the Galaxy (which you can read more about here) the director offered some intriguing updates on his next film, Guardians of the Galaxy 2.
Gunn said “the story is written and that’s it” in regards to the film, so there is no script just yet. But he did say that he didn’t want to repeat what made the first film such a success, the film would delve deeper into each of the characters (and maybe even include some back story) and he feels liberated because he feels the franchise’s role in Phase Three isn’t dictated by The Avengers. Plus, he teased that the series might not continue in a third film, contrary to previous rumors.

He turned Captain America: The Winter Soldier into an ’80s B-Movie trailer. It’s really clever. Check out the Winter Soldier 80s trailer below. Read More »
