Rocket Raccoon Origin Story

The first Guardians of the Galaxy introduced us to the ragtag team of space convicts who were one of Marvel Comics more obscure properties. Director James Gunn brought them into the Marvel Cinematic Universe, and it was one of the most acclaimed movies in the overarching comic book franchise to date. He followed it up with the satisfying sequel this past summer, and when Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 rolls around, likely sometime in 2020, it will help kick off the next 10 years of the MCU. And now we have an idea of what we can expect from at least one of the characters from the cosmic superhero team. Read More »

Guardians of the Galaxy 3 release date

The Marvel Cinematic Universe is building up to something big with the climactic Avengers: Infinity War and Avengers 4, and it’s up to the films following it to pick up the pieces. One of those films is James Gunn‘s Guardians of the Galaxy 3 which, in addition to being a sequel to two of the most beloved Marvel movies, is reportedly supposed to launch a new cosmic phase of the MCU.

However, the MCU has so many moving pieces that it’s hard to predict what movies will be released when after the next two Avengers films. But Gunn has a hint for fans concerning when Guardians of the Galaxy 3 will hit theaters.

Starsky & Hutch reboot

Remember the Starsky and Hutch reboot we heard about last week? Amazon is already behind it, giving the project a script-to-series commitment. Executive producer James Gunn (Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2) is reportedly directing the pilot, which he’s co-writing with his brother, Brian Gunn (PG Porn), and cousin Mark Gunn (Journey 2: The Mysterious Island). However, eboot may me the wrong word for the project because, in a recent Facebook post celebrating the original series and the deal with Amazon, Gunn wrote it’s not a “reboot or a remake, but a continuation of the original series that would deconstruct the buddy cop show in a fun way.”

Below, read what Gunn had to say about the Starsky and Hutch reboot.

Michael Rooker Falls Asleep in Guardians of the Galaxy 2 Blooper

Director James Gunn has a special bond with his Guardians of the Galaxy co-star Michael Rooker. Even before the two worked together on Gunn’s directorial debut Slither in 2006, the filmmaker was a fan of the character actor’s work, and since then the two have sparked a bromance. That’s why James Gunn has no problem sharing an embarrassing outtake from the set of Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 involving Michael Rooker

Believe it or not, the scene in question features Michael Rooker actually falling asleep in the middle of a take, so much that you can hear him snoring. But in order to talk about this scene, we have to put out a spoiler warning. So if you haven’t seen Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2, do not proceed any further. You’ve been warned! Read More »

Starsky and Hutch reboot

Update: Variety has learned Amazon has picked up James Gunn’s Starsky & Hutch reboot. The show has received a script-to-series commitment from the streaming service. With Amazon, Gunn believes they “have the most freedom to create something that is different, challenges the audience, and that strays outside the parameters of genre from time to time.”

There’s no shortage of cops or procedurals to watch on television these days. If watching cops or detectives is your thing, CBS and TNT have you covered on a daily basis. One procedural we don’t have in our lives yet but would tune in for has James Gunn‘s (Guardians of the Galaxy) name on it: a reboot of the ’70s ABC classic Starsky & Hutch. Gunn is reportedly co-writing a pilot, which, if he’s available and all goes according to plan, he would direct. However, the filmmaker tweeted that there’s “some misinformation” going around regarding the planned reboot.

guardians of the galaxy vol 3

There’s no question that Avengers: Infinity War and Avengers 4 will rock the Marvel Cinematic Universe as we know it, but it won’t be until Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 hits our theaters sometime in 2020 that the MCU will be forever changed.

Director James Gunn has hinted that the third film in his Guardians of the Galaxy series will kick off the cosmic universe in the MCU, expanding the films that follow will go beyond just battling aliens on Earth. But this won’t just be a short stint on the other side of the galaxy — the cosmic universe may take up the next 10 to 20 years of the MCU. That’s the equivalent of all first three “Phases” of the MCU!

marvel cosmic universe

Guardians of the Galaxy was a universe apart from the rest of the Marvel movies. While the rest of the Marvel Cinematic Universe were subject to the control of the #ItsAllConnected mantra, with tons of world-building and cameos implemented into the separate films, Guardians of the Galaxy had the freedom to be a wholly separate story unto itself.

But as the MCU expands, so does Guardians of the Galaxy‘s role in it. The third film in the Guardians of the Galaxy series, helmed again by director James Gunn, will play a pivotal role in introducing the Marvel cosmic universe. But Gunn assures that although Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 will be the first in this cosmic era, every film that follows it won’t follow the Guardians template.

Guardians of the Galaxy 2 - Adolescent Groot

People sure did love Baby Groot (Vin Diesel), and for good reasons. Just look at him. There’s something immediately endearing about him. Even his childlike eyes go a long way to make him adorable. Adolescent Groot, not Teen Groot, is a little less adorable and more irritable. In a fun post-credits sequence, Peter Quill/Star-Lord (Chris Pratt) gave him a talking to about his messy room, but in a longer version of the scene, he also tries desperately to convince Adolescent Groot of his coolness.

Below, watch the extended Guardians of the Galaxy 2 credits scene.
