James Gunn Teases Cosmic Beings 'Bigger Than Thanos' In GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY
Commenting on Celestials and Guardians of the Galaxy's cosmic scope, director James Gunn drops a hint that we'll see characters even bigger than the Machiavellian villain Thanos. Check it out
In the latest issue of Badass Digest's BIRTH.MOVIES.DEATH magazine, director James Gunn talks about the scope of Guardians of the Galaxy, among other things. Although Knowhere, the giant floating head of a Celestial, has already been glimpsed in recent trailers, Gunn confirms, "We have a couple of Celestials who we refer to in the film. They’re part of the overall structure of the cosmic universe. They’re part of the fun of what the movie is." James Gunn then teased that we'll see other cosmic entities even bigger than the mad titan Thanos in the Marvel space epic. "Our characters, to some degree, have super powers, but at the same time they’re just ordinary citizens of the galaxy," he said. "They just happen to be renegades - they’re basically bikers. They’re just these ordinary citizens who get caught up in this thing - because they want money in the beginning - that has completely cosmic overtones. There are characters like Thanos involved, and then there are characters bigger than that. Suddenly these mortals are playing in the fields of gods. I always find that a very interesting thing." There's more exclusive Guardians of the Galaxy interviews in the BIRTH.MOVIES.DEATH magazine. What do you think?
Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy expands the Marvel Cinematic Universe into the cosmos, where brash adventurer Peter Quill finds himself the object of an unrelenting bounty hunt after stealing a mysterious orb coveted by Ronan, a powerful villain with ambitions that threaten the entire universe. To evade the ever-persistent Ronan, Quill is forced into an uneasy truce with a quartet of disparate misfits–Rocket, a gun-toting raccoon, Groot, a tree-like humanoid, the deadly and enigmatic Gamora and the revenge-driven Drax the Destroyer. But when Peter discovers the true power of the orb and the menace it poses to the cosmos, he must do his best to rally his ragtag rivals for a last, desperate stand - with the galaxy’s fate in the balance. Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy is presented by Marvel Studios and stars Chris Pratt, Zoe Saldana, Dave Bautista, Bradley Cooper as the voice of Rocket, Vin Diesel as the voice of Groot, Lee Pace, Michael Rooker, Karen Gilian, Djimon Hounsou with John C. Reilly, Glenn Close as Commander Rael and Benicio del Toro as The Collector. Distributed by Walt Disney Studios Motion Pictures, the film opens August 1, 2014.
