AVENGERS/GUARDIANS: Guardians Of The Galaxy Does Not Exist As A Prequel To Avengers 3 And 4 According To James Gunn

During a lengthy podcast interview, Guardians of the Galaxy director James Gunn has again reiterated that the film is its own entity distinct from the Avengers franchise and shouldn't be viewed as just another step toward Infinity War.

Asked about the potential for a team-up between the Guardians and the Avengers, Gunn started by joking that his answer would be the only part of the interview anyone listens to, now that it's been asked.

"The last thing I said was something about how the Guardians, we really are mostly focused on creating the Guardians as their own separate universe, creating the cosmic side of the Marvel Universe. It isn't all about leading towards Avengers," Gunn said. "We're not subservient to The Avengers. Whether or not at some point, some Guardians and some Avengers meet up and meet somewhere in the world, whether it's two years from now, three years from now, four years from now, fifteen years from now...I'm not going to say. But Guardians of the Galaxy does not exist as a prequel to Avengers 3 and 4. They have their own thing that they're involved in. They have their own mythos that they're involved in. They have their own stories that are equally important."

This echoes what Gunn had previously said about the fact that the film isn't designed to "set up" Infinity War in spite of both franchises featuring Thanos.

Now I would have to agree with Gunn as GOTG has still a lot of work to introduce us the audience to the cosmic side of the Marvel Cinematic Universe. But I would also bring up the point that it is highly likely that the Guardians will team up in some fashion with Avengers in "Avengers; Infinity War" because it would entail having Thanos as the main if not only villain in both parts of the sequels so that would entail also the Guardians coming to Earth to help out the Avengers, to fight against Thanos side-by-side on the battlefield. Have Hulk and Drax, Rocket and Iron Man, Starlord with Cap, Gamora with Black Widow, Thor and Hawkeye with Groot, plus a bunch of other awesome characters and so fourth, you know just a simple thought to dream about!
