Even though they've been a comic book in the past, there really is not modern day Guardians of the Galaxy without writer and director James Gunn as his vision for GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY and GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY VOL. 2. He is the Guardians' caretaker now and this is evident since Zoe Saldana confirmed Gunn will be a producer for AVENGERS: INFINITY WAR.
With pretty much every single Marvel Cinematic Universe hero showing up in Infinity War and/or AVENGERS 4, it makes sense to have Gunn oversee his Guardians characters he has defined so well on the big screen. Saldana disclosed this to IGN in a recent interview as well as confirming Gamora in Infinity War.
"The good thing that keeps me relaxed is that these directors are good. They have a really good pedigree. Their last movie, I liked it. I liked their choices. And everyone that worked with them had a really great experience. And James Gunn is a producer on it, so I know that he won’t ever let the integrity of what he’s created for the Guardians ever be compromised. So I’m at ease. Plus I love the Marvel producers. They’re all great, they all want us to win."
Look for the Guardians of the Galaxy to assist the Avengers against Thanos in the upcoming Avengers movie(s). Here's the video with Saldana.
AVENGERS: INFINITY WAR releases on May 4, 2018.
