GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY's James Gunn Says He's Thinking About Breaking MCU Continuity

Marvel Studios has placed James Gunn in charge of the cosmic side of the MCU and the Vol.2 director is already hard at work on the script for the third feature film for Star-Lord and co.

On the first day of E3 Coliseum, Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 director James Gunn was part of a special panel that included Neil deGrasse Tyson, Gearbox Software's Randy Pitchford, Nerdist's Chris Hardwick and 343 Industries' Kiki Wolfkill.  When the discussion turned to deciding when it's right to break your own story - that is, to go against pre-established continuity; Gunn made quite the revelation about the status of Vol. 3's status.

"I'm writing Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 [crowd cheers] and I finished the first draft of the treatment yesterday.  I'm excited about it and I feel really great about it. But there's one little thing that I had in the first movie," began Gunn before breaking into an explanation of the difference between the continuity of the 616 Marvel Comics Universe and the MCU.

He eventually continued, "I did something in the first [Guardians of the Galaxy] where it was in the background but it was distinctly there, and people know that it's there ... I have a really good storytelling reason for breaking the canon, and I stayed up last night figuring out if I'm gonna do it or not. I still don't know."

So what in particular, is Gunn referring to?  "In the first movie, there's the mugshot sequence where they're having their picture taken and the Nova Corps has information about each of the characters come up on their machinery.  Now those things are something your average viewer doesn't see at all and doesn't read. But there's a lot of background about who they work with, where they're from and what's going on and it's one of those things I'm thinking about changing.

What and which character do you think Gunn is referencing? Before the day is out, expect someone to have screen-captured and scrutinized that entire sequence.
