Guardians of the Galaxy Song in Infinity War

Avengers: Infinity War may have been just dethroned from the top of the box office by Deadpool 2, but fans are still talking about the Marvel Studios sequel. That includes sending questions to director James Gunn, since he was consulted about how the Guardians of the Galaxy were utilized throughout the movie. One question has been thrown his way a number of times, and he wanted to make sure everyone got the answer.

When the Guardians of the Galaxy are introduced in Avengers: Infinity War, they’re flying across space to answer a distress call. While the rest of the movie only uses Alan Silvestri’s score, this particular sequence starts off with the crew listening to “Rubberband Man” by The Spinners from the Zune that Star-Lord was given at the end of Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2. But there were a few other options that could have been used for this sequence.  Read More »

While Gunn isn’t going around translating every single phrase that Groot utters (we can usually get the gist), there is one line of Groot dialogue in Avengers: Infinity War that Gunn is open to sharing with us. And it may emotionally wreck you.

Forget cancelling the apocalypse, Pacific Rim Uprising‘s worst transgression was that it probably cancelled the party of the year.

Steven S. DeKnight‘s sequel to Guillermo del Toro’s 2013 action monsters-vs.-robots flick nearly had an out-of-this-world cameo from none other than Guardians of the Galaxy director James Gunn. But sadly, a James Gunn Pacific Rim Uprising cameo was not meant to be.

Guardians of the Galaxy Easter Egg

Back in September of 2015, director James Gunn said that the original Guardians of the Galaxy had an Easter egg somewhere in the movie that had yet to be discovered. Over a year later, fans hadn’t been able to find it, and they were skeptical as to whether it even existed. But Gunn told one fan online if the Easter egg didn’t exist that he would give them $100,000. So we’re taking his word for it.

However, today an elusive Easter egg that had not yet been found in Guardians of the Galaxy was discovered. But did James Gunn confirm whether or not this was the big Easter egg that fans have been looking for years now? Read More »

Avengers Infinity War james gunn

Avengers: Infinity War is poised to take over the world when it hits theaters in April. And it already has a rave review from one Marvel director.

So it would be natural that he would feel possessive of them, or least nervous that Star-Lord and co., are in the hands of other directors. But it looks there’s nothing to be worried about.

Guardians of the Galaxy Awesome Mix Vol 0

One of the defining factors that made Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy an immediate favorite was the soundtrack full of classic pop and rock tunes courtesy of Meredith Quill’s Awesome Mix Vol. 1, given to her little Star-Lord. The soundtrack for Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 went for some deeper cuts, but it still made Awesome Mix Vol. 2 a fantastic collection of tracks for Marvel fans to play over and over again. Now director James Gunn has even more songs for you to listen to.

While the original Guardians of the Galaxy was in production, James Gunn had a personal mix of songs that he played on set in order to set the mood for certain scenes.  He’s talked about this for years, but now he’s finally released the tracklist for fans to listen to on Spotify, and it’s pretty damn great.
