James Gunn reveals ‘Guardians of the Galaxy 2’ development, script idea

In the midst of Guardians of the Galaxy‘s massive success, James Gunn got the greenlight from Marvel Studios for a sequel. The backstory, script ideas and reaction from the studio were revealed by Gunn in a new interview.

The Super director appeared on Alison Rosen Is Your New Best Friend talking about the premise of a sequel.

“It’s not really based on anything. The story for Guardians 2 is an original story that I came up with that I started working on actually while I was shooting Guardians 1, and it’ll answer some of the questions that were put forth in the first movie about Peter Quill’s father and who he is and what’s going on with that. We’ll get to know some of the characters a little bit more and then we’re going to meet a couple of new characters who will be very important to Guardians movies and probably important to the Marvel Universe as a whole.”

“It’s different than what’s in the comic books. Peter Quill’s father is somebody different in the comics. So then when the movie came out, we got green-lit on the sequel right away. I went in and I sat down with those guys and I’m like, ‘Okay, here’s what I think the sequel should be.’ And they were like, ‘Oh, whoa. That’s risky, but okay.’ Now I’m going to turn over the story in a few short weeks and we’ll find out how well it works.”

The cast of Chris Pratt, Zoe Saldana, Dave Bautista, Bradley Cooper and Vin Diesel are all set to return for Guardians 2.

Guardians of the Galaxy 2 will arrive in theaters on May 5, 2017
