James Gunn has the idea of a Guardians of the Universe prequel series.
As the Marvel Cinematic Universe continues to expand into the small screen with projects set up at Disney Plus, one can’t help but wonder where they will go next. While recent Disney Plus Marvel shows have continued the stories of existing characters, future shows like Moon Knight are ready to introduce a whole new set of characters to the Marvel playground.
One part of the MCU that hasn’t been fully explored is the pasts of several characters. Flashbacks are a constant in the franchise, but we didn’t get a prequel movie or series (Captain Marvel and The first avenger do not count!). The idea of exploring different characters’ pasts before they became who they were is an intriguing possibility and one that could continue to expand the franchise.
A recent rumor suggested that Marvel Studios and director James Gunn were working on a Disney Plus series that would focus on the so-called family dynamics of Thanos and his daughters Nebula and Gamora, two members of the Guardians of the Galaxy.
James Gunn, the Shepherd of the Guardians of the Universe franchise, took to Twitter to dismiss the rumor of the prequel series, declaring that there was no “family-like” dynamic to discuss.
Written and directed by James Gunn, the upcoming Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 Chris Pratt, Zoe Saldana, Dave Bautista, Vin Diesel, Bradley Cooper, Karen Gillan, Pom Klementieff, Sean Gunn, Sylvester Stallone, Will Poulter and Chukwudi Iwuji.
The film will hit theaters on May 5, 2023. Stay tuned for all the latest on the upcoming James Gunn movie and subscribe to Heroic Hollywood’s YouTube channel for more original video content.
