Guardians of the Galaxy - Matt Taylor

We shouldn’t have to open with this, but here goes: the Marvel Cinematic Universe is not coming to an end anytime soon. And yet, that seems to be the message the internet has taken from recent quotes by Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige, eventually pulling Guardians of the Galaxy director James Gunn into the muck so he could also confirm that no, one of the most massively successful and lucrative movie series of the young century is not coming to an end. Of course not. Duh.

But Gunn did tease that Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 will kickstart the “new story” that is coming down the pipeline. So that’s something.

James Gunn Thor Ragnarok

On Monday, we compiled a list of reactions to Marvel Studios’ new movie Thor: Ragnarok from critics who got to see the film early, but in the wake of the Hollywood premiere of the film, there’s one more reaction we’d like to talk about. Writer/director James Gunn, the creative force behind the Guardians of the Galaxy franchise and one of the key players shaping the Marvel Cinematic Universe’s future over the next decade and beyond, has written a rave review of the movie, likening it to a lost 1980s classic and singling out Mark Ruffalo‘s performance as The Hulk as one of the film’s strongest aspects.

Guardians of the Galaxy characters don't speak English

If you’re one of those left-brained people who refuses to suspend their disbelief while watching the Guardians of the Galaxy films, wondering just how and why all these aliens from distant universes speak English, director James Gunn would like a few words with you. The characters in Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 aren’t speaking English at all; a voice translator is doing all the work. In a series of tweets, Gunn yet again confirmed the Guardians of the Galaxy characters don’t speak English. See the details below.

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.

Below, learn more about the Starsky & Hutch 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!
