Tag: James Gunn (1-9 of 9)
Stan Lee’s cameos have become a hallmark of Marvel’s films, but rarely is the legendary comic book creator put in harm’s way when he appears among all those superheroes. All that might’ve changed in Guardians of the Galaxy—at least if director James Gunn had gone with his initial plan.
While appearing on The Q&A with Jeff Goldsmith podcast, Gunn spoke about the production of Guardians. The director has previously revealed that the plan originally was to include Lee among the Collector’s museum of oddities and captured living specimens.
But Lee wasn’t going to make it out of the Collector’s holding cell unscathed, according to Gunn. READ FULL STORY
Guardians of the Galaxy hits Blu-ray on Dec. 9. To whet your appetite, EW is excited to share an exclusive deleted scene from this summer’s rock-and-roll space adventure. Originally meant to appear early in the movie, the scene takes a closer look at the sibling rivalry between Zoe Saldana’s eventually heroic Gamora and Karen Gillan’s generally villainous Nebula.

As everyone knows who stuck around to watch the Guardians of the Galaxy post-credit sequence, the film concludes with a scene featuring Benicio Del Toro’s Collector and Howard the Duck. But, according to Guardians director James Gunn, one person who may still be unaware of this is Del Toro himself.
Writer/Director James Gunn (Slither, Super) has apologized over remarks he made in an old blog post from February 2011 (since deleted) that gained traction this week. Gunn has had a more mainstream famous profile recently with the news he will rewrite and direct Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy, which will be released in summer 2014.
In the post, titled “The 50 Superheroes You Most Want to Have Sex With,” Gunn made comments that many perceived to be sexist and homophobic. According to GLAAD,“Gunn referred to the lesbian superhero Batwoman as needing a straight male to ‘turn’ her and called another male hero a ‘fruit,’ among a number of other highly offensive comments.”
Amid growing controversy, Gunn has released a statement saying, “A couple of years ago I wrote a blog that was meant to be satirical and funny. In rereading it over the past day I don’t think it’s funny. The attempted humor in the blog does not represent my actual feelings.”
When Marvel announced that they were initiating “Phase 2″ of their shared-universe cinematic saga, there weren’t too many surprises. A Captain America sequel, a Thor sequel, an Avengers sequel — check, check, checkeroo! And then there was the wild-card project Guardians of the Galaxy, a spacefaring adventure based on a decidedly off-mainstream comic book series featuring a warrior tree and a gun-toting raccoon. Well, the Guardians of the Galaxy movie just got even more interesting: Director James Gunn just announced on his Facebook page that he will be directing the film. Gunn has a devoted cult following for his films, including the horror-comedy Slither and the superhero riff Super. But Guardians will be his largest undertaking yet — by comparison, Super had a budget of $2.5 million, which will presumably pay for about three minutes of Guardians screen time.
Here’s Gunn’s Facebook post, where he also mentions that he’ll be doing a rewrite on the Guardians script, presumably to add in more tentacles: READ FULL STORY
Filmmaker James Gunn is no stranger to strange superheroes.
He wrote 2000’s comic book satire The Specials, starring Rob Lowe, Thomas Haden Church, and Paget Brewster, about the “sixth or seventh” most popular squad of super-powered crimefighters, and later returned to the genre as writer and director of 2010’s Super, starring Rainn Wilson as a crimson-costumed vigilante and Ellen Page as his hyper-violent sidekick.
After those send-ups, Marvel Studios is in talks with him to take on the screen version of their comic book franchise Guardians of the Galaxy.
