Slither and Super director James Gunn is currently prepping for his epic Marvel feature film Guardians of the Galaxy. Gunn recently talked with some NASA scientists recently from the Jet Propulsion Laboratories to talk about the possibilities of space travel and alien life as research for his big sci-fi adventure film. Here's what he had to say on his Facebook page,
Yesterday I spent a few hours with one of NASA's representatives from Jet Propulsion Laboratories, part of a group of scientists who consult [with] the movie industry (for free) to help bring a greater understanding of science to films. It was an utterly fascinating few hours with one of the most intelligent and knowledgeable guys I've ever met... [W]e made our way through a ton of information on the possibilities of space travel, alien life, etc...
He didn't really reveal much about the film but he did talk about global warming, and what the scientists had to say about it. Head on over to his Facebook page to read more about that if that interests you.
I'm excited about Guardians of the Galaxy, especially with Gunn at the helm! It would be awesome if it implemented some of the actual scientific theories that they learned at JPL into the story.
