An additional post on Facebook, he completed the script after writing for forty-eight days straight.
Which sounds exhausting, honestly.
The film is still quite a ways away, but it’s good to know serious progress has been made on the project. With Guardians, James Gunn is in a unique position as many of the characters the cast interacts with in the comics are currently in the possession of Fox – which means Gunn has to find new, unique ways to expand the story. Here’s hoping he pulls it off.
I have faith in him at least.
Guardians of the Galaxy 2 is set to come out in May of 2017.
