“My phrases of practically a decade in the past have been, on the time, completely failed and unlucky efforts to be provocative. I’ve regretted them for a few years since — not simply because they have been silly, in no way humorous, wildly insensitive, and definitely not provocative like I had hoped, but additionally as a result of they don’t mirror the particular person I’m in the present day or have been for a while.”

“One of many issues I’m doing with creating Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 — it’ll happen after the following two Avengers motion pictures, and it’ll assist to arrange the following 10, 20 years of Marvel motion pictures,” stated Gunn. “It’s going to essentially broaden the cosmic universe. We’re going to be establishing new characters.”
However the director ended with a phrase of warning for followers of Peter Quill, Gamora, Drax, Groot, and Rocket.
“It will likely be the final film of this model of Guardians of the Galaxy,” stated Gunn.
In one other interview on the junket in the present day, Marvel Studios head Kevin Feige informed me that Gunn is growing Adam Warlock to be included in a future Marvel cosmic universe movie. Once I talked about this to Gunn, he was additionally fast to level out that Feige’s cause for clarifying that he’s engaged on the character is as a result of “persons are going to suppose it’s about Infinity Struggle.” And Gunn makes it clear that this isn’t the case:
“He’s not. He’s not in Infinity Struggle. However he can be part of the longer term Marvel cosmic universe and a fairly essential a part of that.”
Whereas neither Feige or Gunn have outright stated that Gunn is growing Adam Warlock for Guardians of the Galaxy 3, it’s a protected assumption since he introduced he can be directing the movie earlier this week. Feige additionally implied as a lot, telling me “If he seems wherever sooner or later, it’ll be in Guardians.”
