Director James Gunn sat down with Comic Book Resources to talk about his upcoming project, Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy 2. He spoke about the music, the feel, and how the movie will play a part in shaping more of the cosmic side of the Marvel Universe.
When asked about an update for the movie, Gunn answered saying:
“Well, I’m really inspired. The whole story is written. I’m very excited about it. And that’s where it is. But the story point for me is, in a lot of ways, the most difficult thing. I feel like it’s pretty strong. It’s constantly shifting, but I feel like it’s pretty strong. I’m excited about it.”
He then goes on to talk about a new-world building saying:
“I think there’s a combination of some new world-building, combined with getting to know the world we already know a little bit better, just taking a closer look at everything to get to know things a little bit more intimately as opposed to seeing in very broad terms what some of these cultures are — like, getting to know them very up close and personal.”
Gunn also spoke about the music and why he may not use the same kind in the sequel:
“Really, it’s just about walking forward in an elegant manner. When you go forward with a group of characters, that means you have to go forward. And going forward means you’re understanding these characters in a new way, you’re developing a new kind of story about their lives and who they are and where they’re going. And if you’re doing that, if you’re walking forward, then you can’t just repeat what you did before. That’s going backwards. That’s not understanding the character.”
He then went on to talk about some of the galactic superheroes and how they will change:
“The Guardians are going to continuously change. I think that some of the characters are probably worse than what we think they are, and other characters are better than what we think they are. It’s going to be interesting to learn a little bit about that as time goes on.”
