James Gunn Researching the Original GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY Team?
James Gunn, who has been hired to write/direct Marvel's upcoming space epic, revealed on his official facebook page that he has been reading the 1990's run on "Guardians of the Galaxy". What does this mean for the film?
Via his official facebook page, James Gunn revealed that he is indeed going back and reading the 1990's run of "Guardians of the Galaxy" in preparation for writing and directing the film adaptation. You can read what he said here:
"Rereading old Guardians books, I came upon this villain from Guardians of the Galaxy #1 (1990 run). Although I'm not discussing anything having to do with the Guardians movie, I will say the odds of Taserface making an appearance are quite low."
Although his post was joking at the unlikelihood of minor villain Taserface making an appearance, it does confirm that the writer/director has been doing his research. If he is looking at the original team, what does that mean for the upcoming film? Is there a possibility of time travel and the inclusion of the original members? Sound off below!
