Looks like a certain former Time Lord who travelled through time and space just may become a beloved member of the Guardians of the Galaxy.
Could a member of The Avengers pop up in Guardians of the Galaxy? James Gunn says...
Some casting news for Marvel's other super team-up Guardians of the Galaxy has leaked out recently, with two actors reportedly in the running to star in the comic-based flick. But director James Gunn says those reports are "completely inaccurate."
A few days ago, the director for Marvel's upcoming film Guardians of the Galaxy, James Gunn, found himself in trouble over a poll he'd written that included comments some felt were both sexist and homophobic. Some felt he should apologize, While others felt he'd done nothing wrong. Gunn ultimately opted to acquiesce.
Polls that take base and sophomoric thrills in the over-sexualized nature of comic book characters aren't exactly in short supply on the internet. But when someone chosen by Joss Whedon to direct a major Marvel film puts one together, people can't help but take notice. Uh oh.
After weeks of speculation, and Joss Whedon's stamp of approval, James Gunn has confirmed he's directing Guardians of the Galaxy. In a recent Facebook post, he details his duties that include more than just sitting behind a camera.
Joss Whedon is to Marvel what Christopher Nolan has been to DC. The writer/director delivered Marvel's most successful superhero movie to date, and is somewhat of an authority on their cinematic universe. The studio's next team-up movie—Guardians of the Galaxy— is slightly more ambitious than The Avengers, but Whedon thinks it's in good hands.
James Gunn's bizarre comedy Super intends to turn the superhero genre on its head—the ultraviolent trailer already proved that—so we've been looking forward to catching a glimpse of Ellen Page in a superhero costume that WASN'T Kitty Pryde.
When someone cuts in line ahead of me at a movie theater, I tend to just grumble and take it ... but in my head, I'm going all medieval, sort of like Rainn Wilson in this new clip from James Gunn's superhero comedy Super, which shows what should happen to ALL who dare to cut.
Ellen Page talks about James Gunn's upcoming superhero spoof movie Super.
