    Default Guardians of the Galaxy 2: James Gunn writing and directing

    Guardians isn't even out in theaters yet, but James Gunn is already confirmed to be returning for the sequel.

    James Gunn will reportedly return to write and direct the Guardians of the Galaxy sequel for Marvel Studios, though it's unclear whether or not co-writer Nicole Perlman will be joining him.

    In an interview with TheWrap during Comic-Con, Perlman told the site that Gunn would return, due to the film getting such a positive reaction from press (including IGN's Daniel Krupa). “Of course they would want to make a sequel as long as it does well and people are excited about it, they'll wanna do a sequel. So, it's going to happen," says Perlman.

    Perlman did not confirm her involvement with the Guardians sequel. The first film is Perlman's first produced screenplay, and came from her time in Marvel's writers program where screenwriters are given the chance to write film adaptations of the publisher's comics.

    Guardians of the Galaxy 2 doesn't yet have a release date, but Marvel has a few unnamed spots in their upcoming slate that could definitely be a placeholder for the sequel.

    Excellent

    Before or after Avengers 3?

    Damn Marvel's so cocky that they know Guardians is going to be a hit. Then again, Marvel can seemingly do whatever the hell they want in the film industry nowadays and it will be a hit.

    Here's hoping that GOTG1's box office haul blows up, thus reassuring Marvel Studios that this apeshit zero fucks approach to their movies pays off in truckloads of space ducats.

    I think it's supposed to be tracking pretty well, but, regardless of that, they're confident as hell that the GOTG will return, I'll tell you what.

    I'm surprised that anything with Batista in it is going to make money.

    I find that highly unlikely just because that's a really hard number to hit. Half of that might be more feasible.

    The reviews I've read say that Batista might end up being one of the movie's secret weapons. Every scene I've seen with the guy thus far is a fucking deadpan riot.

    Thor 2 and TASM2 managed 600 million plus, so Guardians can feasibly achieve about that right?

    Movie-goers must like Batista a lot more than wrestling fans.

    Anyways, I doubt it does make it to $1 billion but it's Marvel so anything's possible. I'll definitely check it out, doesn't look like it takes itself too seriously which is good in my books.

    On the plus side as long as he is filming we don't have to see him wrestle

    He was fine in Smallville and Riddick. I see no reason he shouldn't be fine here, too.

    Eh, those two have brand recognition that GOTG doesn't have just yet. We're about to find out how strong the Marvel brand is. I still think Guardians will do fine, and it's going to help that kids are going to love it.

    As both a wrestling fan and a movie geek, I like Batista a lot more in movies and television than I do in a wrestling ring.

    Didn't Thor 1 do really well? And that was released before Avengers. GOTG has the benefit of being a Marvel branded film and a post-Avengers release.

    The first Thor made a lot of money, but the sequel made almost $200 million more dollars, no doubt because the character had shown up in two successful movies already. Not surprising that it crossed the $600 million mark worldwide. I'm not saying Guardians can't get that, but I would think it's more realistic to expect a little less just because it's a pretty obscure property (even compared to something like Thor). But who knows, this shit is a crapshoot. I hope it makes a billion, to be honest.

    I can see GOTG bringing in anywhere from $50 to $75 million opening weekend and having strong legs after that.
