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.

spider man homecoming sequel

Spider-Man: Homecoming has enough buzz and critical praise — as well as estimates of a $100 million opening weekend at the box office — to all but greenlight and usher in the next few Spider-Man movies with star Tom Holland. But while fans are clamoring for more, director Jon Watts still won’t confirm if he’ll return to helm the sequel.

It’s lucky then that we have Holland and his notoriously loose lips to give us hope that Watts will be back to direct the Spider-Man: Homecoming sequel. Marvel should really keep a tight leash on this kid.
