Gunn: 'Guardians Of The Galaxy' Sequel

No that's not true… That's IMPOSSIBLE!

Guardians of the Galaxy director (and co-writer) James Gunn attended the premiere of Avengers: Age of Ultron, so some of the press got to ask him a few questions. As might be expected, questions about the sequel to Guardians of the Galaxy, currently being called Guardians of the Galaxy 2, were asked. Gunn is still writing the script, but there have been tons of hints about what we might expect.

For instance, Gunn has previously expressed that he'd like to expand on some things introduced in the first movie such as the Krylorians, Morag, and the Ravagers. There also have been hints about changing or expanding the cast in future films, Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige having teased Vance Astrovik in the past (though unlikely since Gunn has said he doesn't want people with Earth origins other than Star-Lord in Guardians of the Galaxy).

At the premiere, Gunn mentioned again the topic of fathers, while not directly mentioning the biggest daddy mystery -- Star Lord's dad you can infer it:

"Listen, I'm still excited about Star-Lord's character and where he goes. At its heart, Guardians is a story about families, and if the first film was about him and his mother, this is a story about fathers. So it's exciting to go there."

Note that he said fathers. So we may be thematically be getting a story about more than one dad. We do know that Gamora and Nebula also have a father issue, will we find out about any other characters's dads? One thing we do know is that Star-Lord's father will not be the one from the comics, Gunn has said this explicitly.

Gunn also took a second to tease what was rumored before, that he has in mind plans for a third movie:

"I knew for a long time what the story of the second one was gonna be," he said, before pausing to tease, "And the third one!"

Does this mean that Guardians of the Galaxy 2 will get a big father reveal only to have Star-Lord frozen in carbonite? We'll find out when the movie tears into theaters May 5, 2017.
