James Gunn's Guardians of the Galaxy is finally in theaters across the world, and the director last night took part in a great Q&A session about the movie. There are some really fascinating insights here, as well as a great tease about adding another Guardian to the team for the sequel and what led to that after-credits scene featuring a familiar feathered face. The director also reveals that he too would like his own mini dancing Groot, and I think we can all agree to riot if Marvel doesn't have one ready in time for Christmas, right? Check out the highlights below...



































Starring Chris Pratt, Zoe Saldana, Dave Bautista, Bradley Cooper, Vin Diesel, Lee Pace, Michael Rooker, Karen Gilian, Djimon Hounsou, John C. Reilly, Glenn Close and Benicio del Toro, Guardians of the Galaxy is out now!

A REAL Awesome Mix cassette tape? Now THAT'S real marketing.
sjoerdo0 - 8/2/2014, 4:45 AM
new character is NOVA :D i hope
Starkasm - 8/2/2014, 5:01 AM
Hmm Nova wasn't a guardian though..

Captain Universe, Bug, Jack Flag, Adam Warlock and Vance Astro are the only other characters I can think of...
Maven - 8/2/2014, 5:04 AM
Warlock is the most likely.
TheAbaryMan369 - 8/2/2014, 5:05 AM
My hopes for Guardians 2: Nova and Warlock join the team, with the two of them joining Quill as they travel back to Earth to warn the Avengers of Thanos, while the rest of the Guardians stay in space.

Also, if he's serious that an actual cassette tape of the soundtrack, that will go flying off the shelf in an instant! Make this happen!
Ace006 - 8/2/2014, 5:15 AM
Umm... y no love for Mantis guys anf really loved the end credits scene spoiler slert Howard the duck!

Now people just have to buy cassette tape players...
Pasto - 8/2/2014, 5:28 AM
Cause EVERYONE has one of those right?

@ COREYxYEROC

It would be great if Nova got his own movie and explored more of Nova Corps like CA:TWS did with S.H.E.I.L.D.

James Gunn is on his way to becoming the new god of geek culture.
JoJo1982 - 8/2/2014, 5:34 AM
It's pretty much Adam warlock, he's the only guardian they hinted at doing in this movie.

And since the collection is destroyed, I see it happening soon

@ Sophisticated

I heard Fox was going to use Annihilus in the new Fantastic Four reboot.
GammaSmasher71 - 8/2/2014, 6:18 AM
I'd sell that cassette with a walkway as a package deal.
GammaSmasher71 - 8/2/2014, 6:20 AM
Walkman

Iron Man has been a pseudo-Guardian of late... :)

"RDJ joins GOTG 2 in major role" = $2 billion box office!
sameoldthing - 8/2/2014, 6:33 AM
Need another female on the team really.
Bug would be a cool looking alien character.

Real fun movie but a bit too lighthearted for my tastes.
Dancing Lil' Groot in pot is too "cutesy" also..hope sequel has a bit darker tone.
p0ppysmic - 8/2/2014, 6:44 AM
Nope, Gunn said he don't like Nova as a character. I'm betting its a different character.

Where can i get a Star-lord mask?
nibs - 8/2/2014, 6:51 AM
He just said like yesterday that he doesn't like Nova and doesn't want him in the sequel.
slyjason - 8/2/2014, 6:55 AM
More Cosmo!!!!....Jack Flagg could be cool....but I am betting on Mantis
sikwon - 8/2/2014, 7:18 AM
The Cocoon was visible in the Collector's collection just before it was blown up. I bet that explosion freed Warlock. And the whole "mining a Celestial" thing was an awesome little touch.
String - 8/2/2014, 7:35 AM
I would love for Mantis to join the MCU. If Evangeline does become the Wasp, I believe Mantis is the next female character out of the Avengers to get introduced. It would fit the continuity with the comics.

Outside of Bug, which Marvel doesn't have the rights to, James Gunn has said he loves the character of Starhawk so my guess is it's him. OR it could be Warlock, since we saw the coccoon and he fits the continuity with the Soul Gem. I figure that macgruffin will be introduced either in Doctor Strange or possibly in GOTG 2, if Warlock shows up.
AnthonyLantern - 8/2/2014, 8:02 AM
Fingers crossed it's Adam Warlock
TheHawkWithin - 8/2/2014, 8:04 AM
James Gunn is probably the most down to earth and humble director out there. I'm betting on Starhawk or Adam Warlock joining the team in the new movie.
TheBrotherhood - 8/2/2014, 8:16 AM
For that next character [SPOILER!] in the Post-Credit scene where the Collector was confronted by YOU KNOW WHO! ... the cocoon behind him is starting to crack up open...
Tetrahedron - 8/2/2014, 8:30 AM
The new character is going to be...Peter Quill's father aka ADAM WARLOCK (a being composed of pure light who can hold an infinity stone without being destroyed)!

Pandapool - 8/2/2014, 8:34 AM
@BlanketMan oh boy could you imagine Stark and Quill in the same movie on the same team,that banter would be incredible!
ferg815 - 8/2/2014, 9:27 AM
@Tetrahedron - Nice theory! I could go with that, and maybe seeing his son Quill is what sways him from Magus to Warlock.
bobevanz - 8/2/2014, 9:39 AM
I wonder if they'll keep star lords true dad from the comics, prince jason of spartoi. That would be cool showing a little back story of him fixing his ship on earth and them falling in love. But honestly, it's warlock. His cocoon was opening when howey was making his grand comeback!
bobevanz - 8/2/2014, 9:40 AM
*Jason and meredith falling in love not peter and his dad, awkward -_-
PsychoticSpaceRaccoon - 8/2/2014, 9:42 AM
A few thoughts:

Gunn has said he wants to introduce more women. So I'm guessing that means Mantis and/or Phyla-Vell.

Other than one of those two, I also think we'll see Adam Warlock and maybe Starhawk. I can even see the jokes about how close the name is to Starlord.

While maybe not a "member" of the group, I hope Cosmo's role gets expanded, he finds his teeping voice, and is animated in CG rather than a real dog, just because it allows for more emotion in the face and playfulness.
bobevanz - 8/2/2014, 9:47 AM
The skaarn worry me because I NEVER want to see a planet hulk movie. Stick to your kamikaze attack lol
RexDartEskimoSpy - 8/2/2014, 10:28 AM
Mantis? I dunno; there are enough green people in the movie...
Gr00t - 8/2/2014, 12:12 PM
I am groot... i am grooT?..
I Am Groo0000oootttt!
I aM grOot.

So yeah, his dad must be the cocoon! & a moth squeezed out tha crack & flew over & whispered in Yondu's ear the contract to scoop Starlord & bring him to the wombcoon & stuff him in the vagina slot for big monies!!!
$#!+ I think you're on to something! SOMEBODY WRITE AN ARTICLE!>

gurugeorge - 8/2/2014, 2:30 PM
Just seen it. Go see it guys, it lives up to the hype. Just a really, really fun, spectacular movie, with humour, action and great pacing. Another class act from Marvel.
rabid - 8/2/2014, 4:08 PM
@Ace006
Maybe because Mantis is already Skye from Agents of Shield.
rabid - 8/2/2014, 4:12 PM
Question: Why the remarks from his mother and the chancellor suggesting there was something unusual about Quill's lineage and genetics? In the comics, his father King J'Son is a fairly normal looking humanoid Spartax/Shiar with no sort of power. Were they suggesting something grander?
John C Rill called him a prince, so I presume J'Son is in the plans, but I'm curious if they plan to make him something else.
The cancer scene was reminiscent of Mar-Veal.
rabid - 8/2/2014, 4:12 PM
Vell. Not Veal.
loki668 - 8/3/2014, 12:11 AM
