Good day! It’s Infinity Saturday and I’ve got all your news for all things Marvel! Before I start, for more content, be sure to subscribe on my blog and follow me on my social media accounts.
It seems that the Guardians of the Galaxy are going to play an integral part in Avengers: Infinity War. According to the executive producer of the said film, James Gunn the man himself said that,
“You know listen, I don’t think we should overstate things that it is an Avengers movie. But the Guardians are a part of the cosmic universe, they’re a part of Thanos’ stories, so, they are in there, and they have, not the biggest, but, an integral part to that.”
Last month, Marvel president said that GotG Vol. 2 will not set Avengers: Infinity War and Thanos will not be appearing in it. Also, none of the Infinity Stones will be showing up in the film and will solely focus on the Guardians and Quill’s relationship with his father.
To add in our news, lately this week, a report claimed that the untitled Avengers sequel will be the last time Chris Evans’ will play as Captain America. This report had speculated on who will take on the mantle of Cap. In the comics, The Winter Soldier (Sebastian Stan) and Falcon (Anthony Mackie) already took the mantle as Captain America in some point of the story. Although, this hasn’t been confirmed as of the moment but still we are still speculating on who will wield the mighty shield of The First Avenger.
Also, James Gunn, the writer and director of Guardians of the Galaxy and Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2, said earlier this week that a third installment is on the horizon for the Guardians. Although he comments that he doesn’t know on what his role will be on the third film of the Guardians. Then Gunn expands his comment while having a chat with Yahoo Movies saying,
“There are no specific plans for Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3. But we know unless something goes horribly wrong – which is always possible, you never know – I think that Marvel would want to make another movie. [Marvel chief] Kevin Feige a year and a half ago said, ‘Yeah, one of our things that we’d be thinking about will be a Guardians Vol. 3.”
Then when he was asked about whether or not he’d be involved with the potential sequel, Gunn was little bit less committed,
“I’m just trying to figure out what I’m going to do with the next three years of my life. I love making big movies, that’s my thing. It’s not about wanting to go back and tell the story of a diseased toe for $5,000. I would like to make another big movie. So is that Vol. 3 or not? Is that the thing I’d want to do next or not? I don’t know, we’re talking about it. We’re figuring things out. And we’ll see where it goes. I’m excited about where the Guardians are gonna go, I’m excited about what they can do, and I have a thousand ideas for where the characters would go and the things they would do and what would happen next.”
Well, we hope that James Gunn will still finish his trilogy on the Guardians.
This week, Marvel’s Iron Fist can already be streamed in Netflix. It tells of a story of Danny Rand who was presumed dead after a plane crash. Fifteen years later, he comes back to New York after living in a monastery in K’un Lun, a mysterious place in the Himalayas, and reclaims his place as rightful heir of his father’s company, Rand Enterprises. But as he redeems himself, he finds The Hand has already infiltrated the company and its up to him to save it. Marvel’s Iron Fist is the final Defender to appear in Netflix before the crossover of the four Defenders of New York namely, Daredevil, Jessica Jones, Luke Cage, and Iron Fist in Marvel’s The Defenders.
