Now this is some damn exciting news! What could be Marvel's finest ever franchise (not that it has much to compete against, mind you) has found not only an official sequel, but an official sequel with a finished first - draft script. Read on after the break...
This is shaping up to be one damn exciting week! First off, we have the announcement for Fallout 4 (drools), and now this. Marvel are being rather lenient on the release of details for their new epic installment in an epic series, so here's all we know:
James Gunn has a story-line already planned. The plot is in existence, although the details of who is aware of it are sketchy at best... However, in an official interview, Gunn stated that Marvel did not provide any creative input into the situation and that they simply approved of his ideas. So some creative originality!
Next, we know that the plot made Chris Pratt cry. Holy shit. Guardians of the Galaxy is so much more 'focused' and 'emotional' than the original, making it a more affecting and personal experience. This is gonna be good, I can tell already..... In fact, it's gonna be so good that James Gunn has already blown those annoying fanboys outta the water:
NO.1: Marvel has termed this development as 'risky' to their universe, as it deviates strongly from the comic material, although Gunn is acutely aware of stage 3 developments in such universe and I doubt he would ruin it.
NO.2: No Hulk (yay)
NO.3: There are going to be fewer characters in the sequel, yet there is going to be an additional protagonist, meaning a complete change up in layout from the first film - what's gonna happen? We don't know.
NO.4: Let's be honest, this film is gonna have a kick ass title that is not 'Guardians of the Galaxy 2' , cause that would be like 'Iron Man', and lets be honest, that kinda sucked.
The script took 48 days of constant activity to write according to the director, and is around 70 pages long, which is long indeed.
Excited? Comment below.
