BREAKING MOVIE NEWS
The early response to Ant-Man ahead of its release later this month has been positive. There have been one or two naysayers, but most of those who have been privy to the latest Marvel adventure insist that itís a rollicking entertaining ride. And now it has secured arguably itís most positive reaction to date from none other than Guardians Of The Galaxy writer/director James Gunn.
Writer/director James Gunn is a guy you can trust when it comes to movies about a team of superheroes, which is why it's exciting that he's both backing and suggesting the idea that Marvel Studios get to work on a movie based on the comic series The Runaways.
With the exception of the Iron Man movies, Marvel Studios has largely stayed away from putting numbers in their sequel titles, instead opting for more creative subheads like The Dark World, The Winter Soldier, and Age of Ultron. That, however, won't be the case for the future of the Guardians of the Galaxy series.
Guardians of the Galaxy director James Gunn has been promising new and exciting changes ahead for the franchise. As progress is made on the sequel to his Marvel Cinematic hit, the director loves to tease fans with news on whatís to come. And this time around, the director emphasized just how different Guardians of the Galaxy 2 will be from its predecessor.
James Gunn took to Periscope recently to talk about Guardians of the Galaxy 2 with the masses, and dropped some interesting tidbits. Here are the five biggest things revelations he provided for the highly-anticipated sequel.
James Gunn announced earlier this week that he has finished the first draft of Guardians of the Galaxy 2, but now the director has revealed that Marvel Studios had an unusual response to his pitch for the 2017 blockbuster.
Chris Pratt really can't say much about Guardians of the Galaxy 2, but what he has noted is that writer/director James Gunn's idea for the sequel actually brought tears to his eyes.
Guardians of the Galaxy successfully served as the first substantive delve into the Marvel Cinematic Universeís ďcosmicĒ theater. The filmís star, Chris Pratt, hopes the teamís future exploits donít lead them back to Star-Lordís home planet.
James Gun has confirmed that two Guardians Of The Galaxy villains won't feature in the sequel. And it's all Fox's fault.
Before filming Guardians of the Galaxy 2, James Gunn is taking a side trip into horror, and he's bringing along an old friend.
There's going to be a new face on the team in Guardians of the Galaxy 2, and casting for the new role has already started, kind of.
It could be argued that the eccentric creative approach by director, James Gunn made last yearís Guardians of the Galaxy the fun, intense, phenomenon of a film it became. This process was apparently reflected on the set in the way that Gunn would reward exceptionally good work. It seems that he prefers to show his appreciation with small jars of Play-Doh!
Guardians of the Galaxy star Michael Rooker actually has a history with Jason "Jay" Mewes that goes back a few years, the two having had the chance to work together on Kevin Smith's 1995 cult hit Mallrats. As such, it does make some sense that the former would want the latter to show up in Guardians of the Galaxy 2.
A huge portion of Guardians of the Galaxyís commercial and critical success last year can be attributed to its writer and director, James Gunn. However, it wasnít his first opportunity at making a superhero movie. Over 15 years ago, Gunn had the opportunity to work on a Silver Surfer movie for 20th Century Fox.
Serving as an important litmus test regarding the limits of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, Guardians of the Galaxy was a risky project whose success ultimately paid off tremendously. Now, as production for its upcoming gets underway, a curious tidbit has surfaced surrounding its title. It is being reported that the sequel production is currently working under the rather provocative name, Guardians 3000.
Making a follow up to a massive blockbuster has to be stressful. You want to capture what people loved about the first film, but not just rehash what came before. Thatís the position James Gunn finds himself in, but he says there is only one thing that really worries him as he tries to follow up Guardians of the Galaxy.
Even before Guardians of the Galaxy dominated the box office and received near-universal acclaim, Marvel knew that the ragtag group of aliens had a long future in store in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Now it looks like the long-term plans for the space franchise extend past just a second installment.
When a rumor implied that Chris Pratt could take over as Indiana Jones, fans were already sizing the Guardians of the Galaxy star up for a signature fedora and leather jacket. After those rumors digested for some time, the question of validity was posed to Guardians director, James Gunn, and let's just say he questions the validity.
We already knew that Peter Quill, Gamora, Drax the Destroyer, Groot and Rocket would be returning for Guardians of the Galaxy 2, but now itís been announced that this villain from the first movie will also come back.
You can tell whether a movie is truly a cultural touchstone based on whether or not it has a porn parody. Now Guardians of the Galaxy has one of its very own, and you can watch it online for free.
