Worldwide box office hit “Guardians of the Galaxy” is preparing the plot for its sequel with director James Gunn giving out a few teases that they are adding into the next installment. Read on to know more about this scoop.
When “Guardians of the Galaxy” was first announced for production, Marvel admitted that they made a huge leap of faith as the series did not have any prior franchise that would serve as its standard fan base. However, it came to be that the film turned out to be more successful than they’d expected. Marvel Studios has already gained itself its own fandom that when it premiered, the movie managed to top the US domestic sales in its first weekend and managed to maintain its spot as the highest grossing film in the US and ranking third in the box office hitting Marvel films worldwide. Talk about an unprecedented success. With that, Marvel gained enough confidence to announce the creation of its sequel due to come by July of 2017. Director and co-writer of the sequel James Gunn have long been putting his mind into the plot, and he’s been going in and out and about with the plot he is putting together.
Screen Rant highlighted Variety’s report regarding the Entertainment & Technology Summit where James Gunn shared bits of information about his plans on the coming sequel for “Guardians of the Galaxy.”
“It’s going to be a really surprising open. What happens is all the characters are killed in the first 10 minutes. In really horribly, brutal fashion,” started the Guardians helmsman with a shocking joke. “I spent all day on August 1, the day the first movie was released, writing ‘Guardians 2.’ I was so excited about it and I was finally able to let go of the last one and begin the second one. I always saw this as a universe, not just as one story,” remarked Gunn as published on Cinema Blend.
Director Gunn then didn’t fail to leave many loopholes to get the fans dwindling with anticipation. According to Movie Pilot, all five actors will be reprising their roles for the sequel, along with the other supporting members, although he didn’t mention who those are. More importantly, he also states the high likeliness of the film to expand its plot horizons for the second installment, which probably includes the unveiling of Peter Quill’s father’s true identity.
That concludes our scoop about James Gunn sharing small details about “Guardians of the Galaxy 2.” Stay tuned on Movie News Guide (MNG) for more updates on upcoming films.
