Speaking with Adam Carolla, James Gunn confirmed that he is set to return, but called the opportunity a double-edged sword because it won't allow him to take on some of the other projects he's recently been offered.
" "I'm actually in a somewhat weird position because if the movie does well, then I'm gonna make the sequel. And if it does okay then, well, I've already been offered other movies but I can only do those other movies if I don't do the sequel, so it's a weird situation."
What do you think? Would you rather see James Gunn return to the world of horror? Or is he the only man for Guardians of the Galaxy 2? Marvel announced 5 new release dates yesterday, and this sequel is surely one of them.
Guardians of the Galaxy comes to theaters August 1st, 2014 and stars Chris Pratt, Dave Bautista, Zoe Saldana, Michael Rooker, Ophelia Lovibond, Lee Pace, Glenn Close, Karen Gillan. The film is directed by James Gunn.
Guardians of the Galaxy 2 comes to theaters in 2017.
