'Guardians of the Galaxy 2' Movie: James Gunn Doesn't Want Fans To Expect A Crossover With The Avengers, Says 'We Really Are Separate' [VIDEO]
While it has been a pipe-dream of Marvel fans since the movie came out in August, the director of Guardians of the Galaxy seems adamant that we won't be seeing the members of his team with the Avengers anytime soon.
In an interview on Thursday with Screen Junkies, James Gunn talked about the possibility of the Guardians and Avengers meeting up in the future and what that would be like, but the director had to shoot down those dreams before they could build anymore.
"We really are separate from the Avengers, and I don't think people should assume too many things about the Guardians play in all this, because we have our own galaxy to take care of," he said.
"We have our own galaxy to save. Earth is the Avengers' province. Thinking that everything is going to come together in a perfect way is not necessarily the way it's going to happen."
This isn't the first time that Gunn has shot down the possibility of having these two teams meeting up as he stated last month with MTV that the Guardians sequel wouldn't be a direct tie-in to Avengers 3, which could still be true.
That being said, with Marvel's motive to interconnect everything and the fact that Thanos will be the big bad for the third movie, it seems like that the two teams could still meet up. Yes, the sequel may not directly tie them, but Thanos is going to be a problem for everyone and could warrant them going to the "Avengers' province."
