Marvel Already Making Plans For GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY / AVENGERS Crossover Film?

Guardians of the Galaxy director James Gunn, and the cast of Guardians were recently asked by Yahoo Movies what they thought about a potential Avengers/Guardians crossover.

Gunn started by saying, "We talked about all sorts of possibilities [for a crossover] and I kind of know what the basic plan is. It could always change at any minute." Gunn also added that an upcoming film "could or could not include a couple of Avengers and a couple of Guardians meeting up, or all of the Avengers and all of the Guardians. But, we do inhabit the same universe and they’re pretty big personalities that are likely to, at some point or another, run into each other.” When asked about the dynamic between the two teams, Gunn stated, "I do not think the Avengers would get on well with the Guardians. The Guardians are like a bunch of jerks, really. The Avengers, for all their problems, they’re all do-gooders. And our guys are not do-gooders.”

The film's lead, Chris Pratt weighed in on his thoughts. “It’s a delicate balance. If you go from five characters and you add another five characters, that’s ten characters. That can be very difficult.”

When cast member Vin Diesel (Groot) was asked about the potential crossover, he said, “Marvel will have a lot of options after this movie and one of those options will be integrating teams...I think there’s going to be huge fans of the Guardians and there are huge fans of the Avengers and I think the discussion has already been had [at Marvel]. I think the audience may demand something like that.”

It sounds like Marvel has already been discussing the possibility, and with both teams fighting Thanos, this was almost a given. What do you think of the idea? Could the teams possibly unite for an 'Infinity Gauntlet' storyline? Drop a comment below and let us know!



  2. It makes me wonder if Avengers 3 will actually be a multi-movie event with multiple deaths, I'm not sure how else they will handle all those characters.

    1. Wouldn't it be cool to get a two-part Avengers movie.

  3. Calling it now, the third Avengers will be called 'Avengers: Infinity' or something like that :D Marvel cosmic has hit the big screen people!
