'Guardians of the Galaxy 2' Movie Rumors: Civil War Plot Starting In 'Captain America 3' May Not Affect Them Until 'Avengers 4' [VIDEO]
While the Civil War plot line seems to be set to cause a lot of friction on Earth, it may not have too much effect in space and it seems like the director hosting the intergalactic franchise for Marvel is set on keeping them there for as long as possible.
Cinema Blend broke down what the news that Robert Downey Jr. would be joining Captain America 3 meant for the Guardians of the Galaxy and according to comments made by director James Gunn, it may not have any effect at all.
Speaking to the site on what the first draft for the sequel script looked like, it seems like what will happen in the second movie is already pretty solidified.
"I wrote up a lot. [Kevin Feige] knows all the stuff, and if I died tomorrow they could go make a movie. They could write the story of Peter Quill's father and it would all be there," Gunn said.
"I think Yondu is a very important character, a really important character in this universe, and I think Nebula is really important too and so I think we'll see more of both of those characters."
While that doesn't mean that the Civil War plot line is completely dead, because Marvel is known to throw some stuff in later on, it does mean that the Guardians franchise is headed on their own route for awhile and won't link to the rest of the Marvel universe initially.
The plot could still affect them if they do join the Avengers in the third or fourth movie of that franchise, but for now it seems like Gunn is content on learning about the characters around the universe.
