Joss Whedon sat down recently to talk with MTV about his new job as architect of Marvel's 'phase two' and his thoughts about James Gunn on Guardians of the Galaxy.

 

Beware of a loud buzzing sound effect when MTV's video starts that is much higher in volume than the rest of the video's sound.  Also, here is some of what Joss had to say for those that can't watch the video for whatever reason:

James is what makes me think it will work. I myself was sort of like, ‘Well, I liked Rocket Raccoon as a kid, but I’m not sure how that plays [to a wider audience].’ And then they said, ‘Well, we’re thinking about using James Gunn.’ And I said, ‘Oh, then no, you’re fine.’ He is so off the wall, and so crazy, but so smart, such a craftsman and he builds from his heart. He loves the raccoon. Needs the raccoon. This is the guy who wrote The Specials. People don’t understand how influential that movie was about heroes, about taking heroes and making them mundane. And [he directed] Super. Gunn has barely started, but already has a very twisted take on it, but it all comes from a real love for the material. It’s going to be hard for the humans to keep up... I know he’s going to come from left field and I’m going to go, ‘What?’ And then, ‘Of course, why didn’t I think of that?’ And then I’m going to beat him!”

So far we haven't had an official announcement that James Gunn would be the director, but Joss talking about him like it's a done deal is a good sign.
