James Gunn Confirmed To Write And Direct GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY Sequel

Guardians of the Galaxy writer and director James Gunn has already said that he hopes to return to do the same for a follow-up, but co-writer Nicole Perlman has now revealed that Marvel Studios do want to move ahead on a follow-up and that Gunn WILL return. Check it out!


The Wrap has revealed that James Gunn will return to both write and direct a sequel to Guardians of the Galaxy. Their source? Not the usual studio insiders, but co-writer Nicole Perlman! There obviously hasn't been an official announcement as of yet as Marvel are likely waiting on those all important box office results, but reviews have been overwhelmingly positive and it's expected to overperform next weekend. "They started to figure it out pretty quick when they started getting the reactions from the audience; it was a very positive reaction," Perlman revealed exclusively to the site. "Of course they would want to make a sequel as long as it does well and people are excited about it, they'll wanna do a sequel. So, it's going to happen. James will be directing ‘Guardians 2,’ so he would also be writing ‘Guardians 2." Perlman wasn't sure about her own involvement (she initially become involved with Guardians of the Galaxy through Marvel's writers programme, earning her a credit on the movie as Gunn later would put his own spin on things in a later draft). Elsewhere, Hero Complex mentions that, "Feige confirmed that Gunn would direct a sequel should Marvel move forward with one." How do you guys feel about this news?
