Guardians of the Galaxy animated tv series

Disney is doing a Guardians of the Galaxy cartoon.

James Gunn: Yeah.

That hypothetically takes place between this movie and your next movie.

Really? Is that what somebody said?

Yeah.

Because that’s not true.

Okay.

There’s no way.

That was my question. Is that case or do you have to like be don’t touch any of this?

No, that’s totally separate from this Marvel Cinematic Universe. And whoever said that, it pisses me off.

Avengers: Age of Ultron: The Hulk

When I interviewed you last time, the rumor was about a Planet Hulk movie. And we know there’s not gonna be a Planet Hulk movie ’cause now we know what’s happening through 2020. However, there are a lot of rumors of what Hulk’s gonna be, because there isn’t a Hulk movie.

Right.

What would you say as a tease to fans of what Hulk’s role will be? 

I don’t really know. I mean, it’s like for me, I’m mostly concerned with Marvel Cosmic. Which is separate, you know.

Guardians of the Galaxy 2

Were you involved or how did the decision come about to announce that Guardians 2 was coming at Comic-Con?

Kevin [Feige] came up to me and said, ‘Hey, listen, you know,’ cause we were coming out in a week. I hadn’t been greenlit on 2 yet. So he came up and he’s like, you know, frankly they were gonna announce some other things that got announced, just recently. And they didn’t have contracts signed and things done and so he said, ‘We need to announce some stuff. So what about you and Chris announcing, you know, Guardians 2?’ And Chris and I were both there that day. And I was like ‘Well we’re greenlit? All right, sounds good, buddy.’

And so what is the status? Are you still writing?

The story’s written. That’s it.

James Gunn Guardians of the Galaxy

You mentioned that the idea of this being a trilogy was not necessarily correct.  But we do know that Marvel likes to think in trilogies. Iron Man, Thor, now Cap, even Avengers to an extent. Now what do you do to the characters to make them live, not in just not just beyond two films, but three films, 10 films, you know?

Oh I think these characters can go on forever. I think the thing is but you gotta keep it real and you gotta keep them from becoming the typical good guys in every movie. I think they have a lot of different facets to their personality. I think that the way Guardians is structured, t’s not structured as a superhero movie. It’s not structured as an action movie or a comedy. It’s structured as a family drama. And that’s really what it is. So it’s gotta be, just following it through in that respect in terms of these characters that are all interconnected. Where are they going and what are their relationships and how do they change and how do they stay the same?

Guardians of the Galaxy is on Blu-ray Tuesday. Guardians of the Galaxy 2 is out May 5, 2017.
