If we were to rank all of the major Hollywood filmmakers based on how good they are with social media, Guardians of the Galaxy director James Gunn would rank somewhere near the top. Whether he’s interacting with fans or shooting down rumors, Gunn uses Twitter, Facebook, and Instagram better than just about anyone who is making massively expensive blockbuster movies.
From time to time, he also shares behind-the-scenes photos and anecdotes from set. In today’s edition of “James Gunn Was Interesting On Social Media Again,” we have a look at some early designs of Star-Lord’s mask. Although certainly recognizable as the headgear Chris Pratt‘s Peter Quill wears during Guardians of the Galaxy, there are enough little differences to give you newfound appreciation for how tiny little details make or break a superhero costume. Check out the original Star-Lord design for yourself after the jump.

James Gunn is very good at Twitter. He was very good at Twitter back in the olden days, when he was just the mad genius behind Slither and Super. Now that he’s the director of Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy, he’s taken his larger profile in stride. Few filmmakers are as good at engaging their fans on social media and toeing the company line. It’s a tricky balance that Gunn makes look easy.
In today’s edition of “James Gunn throws hungry comic book fans a bone,” Gunn offered himself up for a Twitter Q&A, answering questions on a variety of subjects from normal fans and fans who just so happened to play Darth Vader back in the day. However, most of the questions revolved around the upcoming Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2, and Gunn obliged, sharing more than a few interesting tidbits.
Check out Gunn’s Guardians of the Galaxy 2 details after the jump.

What are we to make of Vin Diesel? He’s the “tough guy” star of more than one action movie, but he’s a big, silly goofball on social media. He has a reputation for being a little difficult on set, but he spends all of his time between movies being nothing but gracious toward his collaborators. He’s become an icon for energy drink-guzzling bros and Dungeons & Dragons-playing geeks. He’s played tattooed, gravel-voiced spies and adorable talking tree aliens.
And it’s that adorable talking tree alien that brings us here today. The smooth-headed enigma that is Mr. Diesel took to Facebook and shared a live video with his fans, during which he chatted about Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2, praised James Gunn‘s script for the upcoming sequel, and revealed that the new movie will once again feature more dancing than your average superhero tale.
Hit the jump for Diesel’s Guardians of the Galaxy 2 story comments (as well a reminder of Diesel’s wacky dancing history).
