The superhero movie rumor mill has been fast at work, leading some people to believe that Marvel Comic’s The Avengers 2 and Guardians of the Galaxy would be swapping characters.
Speculators claimed that the characters of 2014’s Guardians of the Galaxy would be in some way, mixed into the Avengers sequel, due to hit theaters in 2015.
Joss Whedon, director of The Avengers, stated that his Marvel saga will not swap or share characters with James Gunn’s Guardians series, contrary to all of the rumors.
Whedon said “We’re following Guardians at Shepperton [with Avengers 2] but we won’t be swapping cast members. Every movie is its own thing and has to be. Unless I take a lot of peyote and write a very different draft… and I’m not ruling that out.”
For those of you hoping that in the future these two franchises will combine, there may be hope.
The Guardians director, James Gunn has said that “All of our movies are connected. We’re created in a way that is connected to the movies that came before us and we’re even more connected to The Avengers 2 which comes after us. In that respect, what we hope is that these characters continue and at some point in time, they’ll all meet up with different characters throughout the galaxy.”
