Guardians Of The Galaxy 2 Is Risky!

Guardians of the Galaxy was the biggest success in the comic book movies genre last year. The movie not only impressed wide range of fans, but also received highly positive reviews from the critics. James Gunn comes back to not only direct the 2017 follow-up but also to write the screenplay for it! Well, that had to happen unless Marvel really wanted to do some gamble!

Now, it seems like they are still feeling like it is a gamble! That is what the director himself reveals! In a recent podcast interview on ‘Alison Rosen Is Your New Best Friend’, Gunn claims that when he shared his idea for Guardians of the Galaxy 2, Marvel had the return expression, “Oh, whoa. That’s risky!” However, they uttered a ‘But okay’ as the symbol of trust they have on this young director!

The Idea That Brought Such Reaction!

He named somebody different and that appeared to be ‘risky’ to the studio. But the director who has provided them a massive blockbuster with a B-grade comic book superhero team, demands all the trust in the world and Marvel seems to agree with that!

The Movie’s Not Based On Anything!

Guardians of the Galaxy 2James Gunn also claimed that Guardians of the Galaxy 2 would be an original story which is ‘not really based on anything’! The director claims that he had plotted the story of the sequel while working with the first one. The story would answer a number of questions asked that were put forward in Guardians of the Galaxy.

New But Key Characters To Arrive!
