James Gunn on Ending Guardians of the Galaxy

Gamora was going to die initially in “Vol. 2” [2017], after which we talked about it occurring in “Infinity War” and that labored higher for the story. But the remainder of them, I at all times knew the place they have been going. I knew that the entire trilogy is about Rocket, who we consider as a supporting character, changing into the captain of the Guardians.

The arc with Peter Quill, in some methods, you may have a look at as that of many individuals who’ve skilled childhood trauma. He was by his mom’s bedside when she died, and he ran away and went into outer area — which, for different folks, might be shutting off from the world — and stayed there for a very long time till he got here to the belief as an grownup that he wanted to return to Earth. That, for me, was at all times his journey.

Nebula turns into a pacesetter, however a distinct type of chief from the place she was. Mantis goes off on her personal and takes care of herself as a result of she lived by others’ guidelines her complete life. Drax realizes that he’s a father and that’s what he’s actually good at — he’s not a destroyer. All these issues, some extra clearly than others, have been in my thoughts from the primary film.

Few Marvel sequence have been as affected by the occasions of “Infinity War” and “Endgame” as “Guardians of the Galaxy.” How did you’re feeling about having a number of main plot factors occur exterior the movies of your personal trilogy?

So much? I feel there was just one.

Well, Gamora’s dying is the massive one, however even her first kiss with Quill is available in “Infinity War” after the primary two “Guardians” films look like constructing to it.

I begged them to have that kiss within the film, as a result of it was mandatory to actually cement their relationship. I had a kiss in “Vol. 2” that I minimize — it was superior, however it got here in a bizarre time. At the tip of “Vol. 2,” you determine the truth that they’ve emotions for one another fairly distinctly, however in “Infinity War,” we wanted to determine that they have been now boyfriend-girlfriend and this was a traditional factor for them. It wasn’t actually concerning the kiss, it was about displaying that they have been now a pair.
