James Gunn May Have Plans For Star-Lord And Co. Beyond GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY 2

While at the Tokyo International Film Festival, Guardians of the Galaxy director James Gunn discussed plans for the sequel (and beyond), whether he has time to film anything else between Guardian installments, and making movies the Marvel Studios way.

The Playlist caught up with Guardians of the Galaxy director James Gunn at this year's Tokyo International Film Festival and asked a number of pertinent, Guardian questions. First among them, was what Gunn plans for the sequel.

"We open up on a “Mission: Impossible” scenario where all the characters die…No, to be honest, I had the basic story for number two while I was working on number one, and perhaps even beyond that. So it’s gonna answer a lot of questions that are proposed in the first one, and we’ll be able to get to know some of the characters we didn’t get to know in the first one a little bit more, and we might meet a few new characters too."

Sounds like Gunn may have a story in mind for a Guardians of the Galaxy trilogy, not just the sequel. On balancing making movies the Marvel way and the James Gunn way, the director said there was a fine balance.

"I very much knew that there were certain things about ‘Guardians’ that needed to stay the Marvel way, but then figuring out a way around them to do my own thing was I think part of what made me have so much fun with the movie. So there’s always those things, whether they’re budgetary or otherwise. And even on ‘Guardians,’ there was a lot of budgetary constraints."

And while Gunn is busy toiling away on the script for Guardians of the Galaxy 2, The Playlist asked whether attending the Tokyo International Film Festival has inspired Gunn to return to his indie, low-budget roots.

"I think if I were to do something in a lower budget, I’d probably do it in another medium. I would be more interested in doing something like that on television —something I haven’t done.....Definitely “True Detective” was a great example of one director, one story. It worked fantastically well. Well, I thought it worked fantastically well, I know a lot people didn’t. A lot of people didn’t like the last episode, I loved it. But I do have a lot of hardcore atheist friends who react badly whenever there’s even a hint of mysticism."

The Guardians of the Galaxy will return in Guardians of the Galaxy 2, out in US theaters on May 05, 2017.
