Marvel fans will be happy to hear that director James Gunn is set to write and direct Guardians of the Galaxy 2. As you know, he developed the first movie, and it seems very appropriate for him to come back and continue the epic sci-fi adventure that he started in this universe.
The co-writer of the first film, Nicole Perlman, made the announcement when talking to The Wrap about how well the movie was doing with test audiences and the press saying:
“They started to figure it out pretty quick when they started getting the reactions from the audience; it was a very positive reaction. Of course they would want to make a sequel as long as it does well and people are excited about it, they'll wanna do a sequel. So, it's going to happen… James will be directing Guardians 2, so he would also be writing Guardians 2.”
I've heard nothing but great things about this movie, and I can't wait to finally see it for myself. Even though I haven't seen it yet, I'm still stoked about the sequel that Gunn is going to bring the fans.
