James Gunn on Peter Quill’s father and using Thanos in Guardians of the Galaxy 2

13 August 2014 8:45 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

With Guardians of the Galaxy currently tearing up the global box office, director James Gunn is already hard at work developing the sequel to the space opera, which has been confirmed as hitting cinemas as part of Marvel’s Phase Three on July 28th 2017. Speaking to Empire, Gunn has offered up a few thoughts on where Guardians of the Galaxy 2 may go, beginning with Peter Quill’s (Chris Pratt) parentage:

“There have been a lot of documents passed around about who Peter Quill’s father is between a select two or three of us. That’s been part of the plan since the beginning, that’s something I had to work out before we shot the screenplay. We wanted to make sure Yondu’s place in everything made sense and it does, so it’s all very specific stuff… It’s definitely not the character who it is in the comics, »

Check out James Gunn’s birthday present from Marvel

11 August 2014 2:45 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Better watch out Avengers, it looks like Thanos isn’t the only guy in the Universe with an Infinity Gem!

It was James Gunn’s 44th birthday last week and the Guardians of the Galaxy director posted an image on his Instagram of the present that Marvel got him- the Infinity Gem that Thanos wanted in the movie, complete with Peter Quill’s line of, “that was a pretty good plan”.

See the present below:

Marvel have been dropping the Infinity Gems into their movies since Captain America: The Winter Soldier, which also played a large role in 2012′s The Avengers. Since then we had The Aether appear in Thor: The Dark World and The Orb in Guardians of the Galaxy. At San Diego Comic-Con, it was announced that Josh Brolin would appear as Thanos in Avengers: Age of Ultron and it was teased he would be the main villain »

Guardians of the Galaxy blasts past $300 million at the box office

10 August 2014 12:43 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Those who expected that audiences wouldn’t respond well to James Gunn’s wacky space opera Guardians of the Galaxy were very, very wrong, as the film not only broke August box office records on opening weekend, but continues to have legs in week two. It may have come second to Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles this weekend, taking a 56% drop in ticket sales, but it still managed to bring in $81.6 million worldwide, blasting right past $300 million.

In just ten days, Guardians has nearly surpassed the lifetime grosses of its Marvel brethren Thor ($175 million) and Captain America: The First Avenger ($176 million) domestically. It will likely pass their worldwide grosses before too long, as The First Avenger grossed $370 million in its run, while Thor finished with $449 million. The movie hasn’t even come out yet in some moneymaking foreign markets; it hits China on October 10th and Japan on September 13th.

Nova concept art from Guardians of the Galaxy

7 August 2014 4:14 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Despite persistent rumours that Richard Rider would appear in Guardians of the Galaxy, as it turned out the character of Nova was absent from the cosmic superhero ensemble. However, there were plans for Nova to make an appearance in the film at one point in time, and Superhero Movie News has posted a photo of some concept art from the Guardians of the Galaxy: The Art of the Movie book which may depict how the character would have looked. Of course there is the possibility that it’s just an early design for the Nova Corps…

Take a tour around the Milano spaceship from Guardians of the Galaxy

6 August 2014 7:28 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

After Guardians of the Galaxy’s box-office busting opening weekend, you might think that the movie doesn’t need any more publicity. Thankfully, Marvel doesn’t think that and has uploaded a video of Chris Pratt (The Lego MovieHer) giving a tour of his character’s Milano spaceship from the film.

It’s an interesting – if brief – clip. Much of the Milano set appears to be completely functional, with the onboard computer screens displaying their own graphics rather than being filled in via CGI. Check the video out below…

Chris Pratt raps Eminem’s ‘Forgot About Dre’ and talks Knightrider rumours

5 August 2014 9:41 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Those who have already seen Guardians of the Galaxy will be familiar with Peter ‘Star-Lord’ Quill’s Awesome Mixtape Vol. 1 that soundtracks the movie. In real life, however, the actor who portray hims – Chris Pratt (The Lego Movie, Her) – has revealed quite a different musical taste to Motown records and Blue Suede one-hit wonders.

Talking to Shade45 radio station, Pratt praised Dr Dre’s album ’2001′ as his own ‘Awesome Mixtape,’ knowing every word off by heart. And he proves it. Check out the rather impressive Pratt rap below (Warning: the clip contains adult language)…

Because we’re also a serious movie news site, we should probably mention the actual bit of news to come from that clip. Not the abscence of any black dinosaurs in Jurassic World (“I’m not sure scientifically that holds up”), but that Pratt first heard about the Knightrider film adaptation, in which he is rumoured to star, »

James Gunn talks about the post-credit cameo for Guardians of the Galaxy

5 August 2014 12:59 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Obviously, post-credit spoilers for Guardians of the Galaxy

James Gunn surprised many Marvel fans with the post credit sequence for Guardians of the Galaxy by providing a cameo of the oft-mocked Howard the Duck.

With the rights to the character back at Marvel, it’s unclear as to whether we’ll get another movie featuring Howard the Duck, but Gunn was open to talk about him during an interview with ComingSoon. “I’m glad you saw him. I’ve done a few interviews now where they’ve come in and said, ‘I heard Howard the Duck is in the movie but I didn’t see him’”.

Howard the Duck first debuted in 1973 and was noticed by Disney when he got his own book in 1976 and accused him of being too similar to their own Donald Duck. In a bizarre legal agreement, it was decided that Howard could continue being a fixture in the Marvel Universe, »

James Gunn thanks fans for Guardians of the Galaxy’s success

3 August 2014 11:30 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Marvel launched its latest franchise this past weekend as director James Gunn brought the cosmic side of the Marvel Cinematic Universe to life with the arrival of Guardians of the Galaxy, and with the film proving to be a huge hit – banking an impressive $160 million opening weekend worldwide – Gunn has now taken a moment to thank fans for making the film a huge success with a heartfelt message on his Facebook page:

Thanks to all of you who saw (and are seeing) Guardians of the Galaxy this weekend, from the bottom of my heart. The Guardians are a group of oddballs, outcasts, and geeks. The movie is for anyone who ever felt cast aside, left out, or different. It’s for all of us who don’t belong. This movie belongs to you. And, today, I think we’re doing okay.

 

I am of course happy with all the film has accomplished box-office-wise. »

Behind-the-scenes featurette for Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy

2 August 2014 1:42 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Here’s an image from the Guardians of the Galaxy’s post-credits scene: Best Cameo Ever

1 August 2014 4:48 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Warning: Guardians of the Galaxy spoilers to follow…

It’s a given that every Marvel offering will feature a fun little tongue-in-cheek post-credits scene. After bearing witness to two hours of drama and action, it’s a pleasant gesture to have the final takeaway from the film consist of something lighthearted. Send the audience home with a smile they can’t wipe off their face.

Guardians of the Galaxy is no different, but director James Gunn has opted for a post-credits scene that captures the spirit and irreverent tone of the rest of the film. Ladies and gentlemen, Howard the Duck has returned and is apparently a thing in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. If you’re having flashbacks of terror to that god-awful monstrosity of a film, remember that this is just a playful joke, and that there are no plans to actually make a new Howard the Duck film. »
