James Gunn On Where He's At With GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY 2
Yesterday we found out that Gunn would indeed write and direct a sequel to Marvel's brilliant space adventure flick, and it turns out he already has a fair idea of the direction he'll be steering the Milano. More Yondu and the Ravagers? the Kree? Quill's Dad? Yup..
Although it's obviously very early days, director James Gunn does sound like he's already made headway into the story for a Guardians Of The Galaxy sequel. While chatting to Film Divider he comments on co-writer Nicole Perlman, and her original script for the first movie, and it sounds to the site like he'l almost certainly be flying solo with the sequel's script. Gunn also seems to have several ideas already in place, and he's filled Kevin Feige in on the plan too. Here are his quotes in full, although beware of SPOILERS as it pertains to certain characters who may or may not survive the first film!
"I know a lot of where I want to go. I have a lot of ideas for stories and characters that are going to appear, and there are documents written up, that some people have, about Peter Quill’s father and his relationship, a lot of stuff about Yondu and a lot of stuff about Drax that nobody knows. There are a lot of things that are part of the overall schematic that already exist, not to mention a lot of stuff about all of the cultures. There’s a lot of stuff about Xandarian and Kree culture that I’ve written down or I have in my head, as well as Krylorians and Ravagers. Kevin Feige has stuff. I wrote up a lot. He knows all the stuff and if I died tomorrow they could go make a movie. They could write the story of Peter Quill’s father and it would all be there. I think Yondu is a very important character, a really important character in this universe, and I think Nebula is really important too and so I think we’ll see more of both of those characters."
Gunn even suggests that he has chosen a few songs for the "Awesome Mix-tape 2" already. There's more at the link below, but what would you guys like to see in a Guardians Of The Galaxy sequel? There are quite a few potential characters from the comics who could join the team after all.
