It seems an odd choice to direct a movie as important as Guardians of the Galaxy, which will attempt to expand Marvel's Avengers franchise into the cosmic arena, but several websites are reporting that Billy Gunn, former WWF Intercontinental and Tag Team Champion, is the studio's choice. The "Ass Man," as he was commonly known during his pro-wrestling career, is most famous for having an obsession with rear ends, both those of others and his own.

Gunn has no prior directing experience, though he did guest-star on an episode of Sabrina the Teenage Witch in 2000, so he does have experience with comic books adapted to film. There is no word on whether Gunn will be joined by his tag team partner, The Road Dogg Jesse James, in an executive producer capacity, but The Outhouse has obtained a sizzle reel Gunn is using to promote the project.

Well, that was... what? Oh. Yeah, that makes sense. Right.

It turns out this reporter was in error, and it is actually James Gunn who has been selected for Guardians of the Galaxy. While Gunn has not yet signed a deal, he is the only director Marvel is currently talking to, having eliminated all other candidates. The movie is set for release in August, 2014.
