Breaking news from the ever-beloved Twitter: Guardians of the Galaxy director James Gunn will be publishing the script for recent Marvel hit Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2.
This news came about when a Twitter user contacted Gunn over the service to ask if Marvel Studios will continue to publish screenplays for their films, like they did for Captain America: The First Avenger. Gunn didn’t confirm whether or not it will be a studio-wide thing, but he did confirm that he himself will be doing it for Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2.
This is a pretty cool move on Gunn’s part. Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 was a smash hit at the box office, and the Guardians of the Galaxy series has been one of the more widely beloved Marvel Studios series. The movie made over $500 million at the box office — an impressive feat even for a Marvel Studios film, which can’t seem to stop themselves from producing money in huge waves.
He didn’t say when the release will be, but, as you can see above, he does say that he is currently working on it. Hopefully it will be pretty soon for all you Guardians of the Galaxy fans out there who want to take a look at the bones of this film.
Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2, directed by Gunn and starring Chris Pratt, Zoe Saldana, Kurt Russel, Dave Bautista, Vin Diesel, Michael Rooker, and Bradley Cooper, is set to come out on DVD and Blu-ray on August 22nd. For those who want it sooner and/or in digital, it is set to come to Amazon Digital and iTunes on August 8th. If you’re like me, Brandy (You’re A Fine Girl) by Looking Glass hasn’t left your head since you were at the theater.
