James Gunn turns in Guardians 2 treatment; Karen Gillan to return as Nebula
Writer/director James Gunn has given us plenty to chew on regarding GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY 2, in that it will be based on an original story from him and not have much crossover action with the other Avengers. After all, why would it? The Guardians have an entire galaxy to explore! Despite being 25 months away from release (who's counting?), Gunn is taking the first big step in getting the film created. Check out what he had to say via Twitter’s live-streaming app, Periscope.
James Gunn on the progress of GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY 2:
I turned in my treatment. I’m going to meet about it on Friday and we will start working on the screenplay next week.
Normally a script treatment is devoid of details, as a project this big would have to be greenlit first, but Gunn went on to say that he's actually pretty far along on the screenplay with 70 pages already done. He's stated before that Ronan is definitely, positively, absolutely dead, although you can't blame fans for speculating given how these comic book films usually work out. He did, however, confirm that Karen Gillan would be making a return trip to this universe as Gamora's evil half-sister, Nebula. I found her to be a pretty lukewarm villain in the first film, so here's hoping Gunn cooks up something really nasty for her to do in the sequel.
GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY 2 will hit theaters on May 5, 2017.
These two have some issues that need to be worked out.
