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.

Living in the United States, it’s easy to look at our release calendar and see it as the be-all, end-all. But these days, international audiences make up far more of the audience for a film than the US release does. International box office dollars are increasingly important to studios, including Marvel Studios. For example, Guardians of the Galaxy was a big hit in the United States, but it grossed more overseas. Same for The Avengers and Iron Man 3.
So, while last week U.S. audiences got release dates for all of Marvel’s Phase Three, those essential international audiences were left in the dark. Now, the Marvel Phase 3 International release dates have been revealed. As usual of late, most of them take place before we get the films in the US. Read More »
Jessica Chastain is one of the most popular and talented actresses working today. She’s in Interstellar this week, A Most Violent Year after that, then Guillermo del Toro’s Crimson Peak and Ridley Scott’s The Martian next year. And those are just the confirmed ones.
When an actress has that much buzz surrounding her, you know the big guns come calling. And in Hollywood, these days, Marvel Studios has the biggest gun. Chastain confirmed in a new interview she’s spoken to Marvel about some possible things in the future, but she doesn’t want to play a secondary character. She wants to be a kick-ass hero with a costume and action scenes.

But she did talk to them. So below, watch Chastain’s video interview talking about potentially working for Marvel and run through a few possible Jessica Chastain Marvel roles she could go. Read More »
