Guardians of the Galaxy: Vol 2

Surely, I can’t be the only one who was extremely annoyed when Tony Stark was flying around in his Iron Man suit in the FIRST SCENE of Avengers: Age of Ultron. I mean in Iron Man 3 Tony Stark gets rid of his suit, indicating that he’s putting that life behind him. Oh well…

If you’re anal about continuity like I am, then here’s a piece of news that could potentially ruin your day. At the E3 World Building Panel James had this to say:

I’m writing Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 and I finished the first draft of the treatment yesterday. I’m excited about it. I feel really great about it. But there’s one little thing that I had in the first movie. Now, Marvel Canon — MCU — is crazy. There’s the 616 universe which is the Marvel Comics Universe, which people get hung up on that canon, and then there’s the MCU, The Marvel Cinematic Universe, which has a separate canon (inspired by but not exactly the same as the 616). I did something in the first movie of Guardians where it was in the background but it was distinctly there, and people know that it’s there. And I’m like goddammit. Because I have a really good storytelling reason for breaking the canon, and I stayed up last night figuring out if I’m gonna do it or not. I still don’t know.


In the first movie, there is the mugshot sequence where the characters go through and they’re going through the mugshots and having their picture taken. And the Nova Corps has information about each of the characters coming up on their machinery. Those things are something that your average viewer doesn’t see at all. But there’s a lot of background I put into those things about who they’ve worked with, where they’re from, what’s going on. And it’s one of those things that I’m thinking about changing.

It’s still unclear what exactly James Gunn is referring to, so one can only speculate for now.

Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 has no official release date yet, but you can catch Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 in cinemas now.
