James Gunn Talks GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY Casting; Wants To Adapt THUNDERBOLTS

Writer and director James Gunn talks briefly about what other comic books he'd like to adapt for the big screen, comments on whether he has freedom to cast whomever he likes in Guardians of the Galaxy, and reveals that he has a "long, long list" of choices for Rocket Raccoon.


Talking at the "Celluloid Heroes" panel at this weekend's MorrisonCon in Las Vegas, Guardians of the Galaxy writer and director James Gunn was quizzed about exactly how much freedom he has with casting the Marvel Studios movie. "It's not cast-dependent. We could make the movie with unknowns if we wanted to," he revealed. "I can't talk too much about this, because Marvel will kill me!" Of course, there's one character in particular that fans care more about that the rest. Rocket Raccoon. "There's such a long, long list for all our casting choices, we've barely begun."

Finally, he revealed which other properties he would like to adapt. "There's only four comics properties that ever interested me in turning them into movies," Gunn declared. "One was 'We3.' The others were 'Thunderbolts,' 'Hit Monkey'...and 'Guardians Of The Galaxy.'" Marvel Studios don't own an awful lot of their characters, but a Thunderbolts movie (with the right roster) is a definite possibility! Which of these properties would you be most interested in seeing become a reality on the big screen from Gunn? Sound off with your thoughts in the usual place!
