Complete with the James Gunn seal of approval, the How It Should Have Ended crew has taken on Guardians of the Galaxy.
It’s a good thing Gunn liked it, too, because the video points out several instances in the film where things could have logically gone a very different way. The result is one of the longest How It Should Have Ended videos yet, but one with tons of jokes and references. Those are aimed not only at the film, but at the larger Marvel Cinematic Universe and other comic book series. There are even some cameos from characters from Star Wars, Harry Potter and more.
It’s a hilarious, clever, and well made video that’s worth checking out. Below, watch how Guardians of the Galaxy should have ended. Read More »
