During an interview with KCRW, Guardians of the Galaxy director James Gunn addressed one of the big questions that fans have been asking about the future of the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Will the Guardians of the Galaxy ever connect to the Avengers? Here’s what Gunn had to say.
You know, there’s probably at some point in time where the Avengers, some members of the Avengers and maybe some members of the Guardians will perhaps meet.
Gunn continued, “But at the same time, we are in a different place. And the most important thing to us is the mythology of the Guardians and the cosmic mythology of Marvel Cosmic end of things. And that’s the thing that interests me the most. To not have the Guardians necessarily be subservient to the…we’re not all trying to lead to some Avengers 3 or Avengers 4, it really is about where are the Guardians going after this and what’s happening with them.”
Guardians of the Galaxy 2 is scheduled to be released in movie theaters on July 18, 2017.
