The Wrap has broken the news that James Gunn, director of Guardians of the Galaxy, will in fact write and direct Guardians of the Galaxy 2. Gunn’s co-writer, Nicole Perlman, revealed this news to The Wrap.
From The Wrap Interview: “They started to figure it out pretty quick when they started getting the reactions from the audience; it was a very positive reaction,” Perlman told TheWrap. “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.”
As for Gunn?
“James will be directing ‘Guardians 2,’ so he would also be writing ‘Guardians 2,'” said Perlman.
One week before the film is released is pretty optimistic, but the buzz has been positive on the film. Marvel has already announced an insane amount released dates through 2019. Is a sequel to Guardians of the Galaxy included in that lot? We’ll find out this weekend at Comic Con.
