James Gunn‘s Guardians of the Galaxy hits theaters everywhere this Friday. I’m incredibly excited for what I consider the most anticipated film of the summer.
Marvel and Disney have a lot riding on this cosmic comedy/adventure and I sure hope it pays off for them. The early word is that the film is great and loads of fun and that only makes time inch slower as I countdown until I get to see it for myself on Tuesday.
Now, ahead of the film’s official release, comes word that Gunn is returning to direct Guardians of the Galaxy 2.
This news is both awesome and kind of sad. On one hand, Disney is showing enough confidence to secure their director for another go, which means that they loved what he did with the first film and really want to keep everything similar for the sequel, while on the other hand I’m just shaking my head at the fact that sequels are getting announced before the original film is even released and received by an audience.
I generally enjoy Gunn’s work, so I have very little doubts about this one, but let’s just cool the jets until this one actually lands at the local cinema.
