Gunn Guiding “Guardians”?

 

“Guardians of the Galaxy” – the most out-there choice for a Marvel franchise yet?

If there’s one constant in the choices that Marvel has made for their cinematic offerings to date, it’s the bold and unusual choices they’ve made behind the cameras.

Here to make your Marvel movie that bit weirder – James Gunn

Jon Favreau, Louis Leterrier, Kenneth Branagh – to that list of unexpected shot callers now add Marvel Studios’ apparent choice to skipper their “Guardians of the Galaxy” adaptation – James Gunn.  If you’re a fan of the B-movie-and-proud-of-it likes of “Slither” and “Super”, you’ll be both familiar with his work and perhaps also wondering what the jiggins Marvel’s finest saw in those brilliantly demented, defiantly non-mainstream genre pics which assured them that Gunn is the guy to make their next $200 million sci-fi tentpole flick.

An eccentric choice, certainly, but perhaps Gunn’s uniquely bonkers viewpoint is what you need when your main characters include a sentient space plant and a pissed-off, gun-toting racoon.

I don’t know what’s being placed in the coffee over at Marvel Studios, but long may it continue.
