James Gunn talks about ‘Guardians of the Galaxy 2’ – it will be emotional

Director James Gunn has been insisting that Guardians Of The Galaxy 2 will be a lot more “intimate” with fewer characters in play in the sequel than the first movie.

Gunn once again emphasized the movie’s more emotional elements while briefly talking to Collider at the 41st Annual Saturn Awards.

“Well I think I’ve said so much already… I think it’s a more emotional movie. It’s both a bigger movie and a smaller movie because we focus more intensely on some of the characters. We learn a lot about fathers in the second movie and I think we focus a lot on that”

Don’t fret Marvel fans as Gunn teased new characters.

“You’ll have to wait and see the movie to see who’s introduced” Gunn added with a smile, when asked if ‘Magus’ could possibly appear in the movie.

Gunn has previously insisted there will only be one major new character in the sequel, and many fans believe this to be Adam Warlock.

The GOTG cast is set to return: Chris Pratt (Star-Lord), Zoe Saldana (Gamora), Dave Bautista (Drax), Vin Diesel (Groot), Sean Gunn (Kraglin), Michael Rooker (Yondu), Karen Gillan (Nebula), with Bradley Cooper (Rocket).

Guardians of the Galaxy 2 opens in theaters on May 5, 2017.
