Spoilers: Marvel's Kevin Feige talks GOTG 2 plot, Thanos, Nebula and more
It appears most of you have already seen GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY, but there are a few spoilers in Kevin Feige's recent conversation with IGN. Feige also talks a bit about possible plans for the sequel, so just a heads up if you don't want to know anything about the next movie.
Towards the end of GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY, it was revealed Chris Pratt's Star-Lord is only half-human, and his dad is an alien. IGN wanted to know if his father and his identity will play a big part in the sequel.
I think it's pretty important. I think there's a reason we seeded it at the very end of the film like that. I think that would certainly be part of a next Guardians adventure. Certainly, that would be part of it.
Kevin Feige goes on to say the identity of Star-Lord's father won't be revealed in any of the Marvel movies being released before GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY 2.
I think that's pretty important for James [Gunn] and would be appropriate in a [Guardians movie]. I don't think you'd spoil that in Cap 3.
Karen Gillan's Nebula managed to survive in GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY, and Kevin Feige says he'd like to bring her back for another movie.
I would say any character that doesn't overtly perish is certainly fair game to come back. If people know the comic lore, Nebula has a lot of varying different roles to play over the course of a lot of different titles in the comics. We have somebody like Karen, and you have a look that is so weird and so great. I think that's something we'd all like to see again.
GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY gave us a first look at Josh Brolin's Thanos, but he really didn't do too much. IGN wanted to know if we'll get a taste of just how powerful the supervillain is prior to THE AVENGERS 3, since he likely won't have a huge role in AVENGERS: AGE OF ULTRON.
That is an excellent point to make. I don't know. The truth is, anything I say would be a spoiler, frankly, on that. I don't think it's required. I think you could go right into a Thanos-centered movie and tell the audience anything you need to know. But the fun of our universe is that the characters can pop up in multiple franchises, so... perhaps. It is a good question.
Finally, Feige was asked what an Avengers and Guardians of the Galaxy team-up would look like, and if the two teams would get along.
You know, the fun about The Avengers, as we we're gearing up to that, was 'how would Tony Stark deal with goody two-shoes Steve Rogers in World War II? What would Tony Stark think of a Norse god who wields a hammer? The brilliance of Joss [Whedon] was having fun with that. So who knows if and when these guys would ever connect, but it is fun thinking about, how would Steve Rogers react to Rocket? Or, you're right, Drax couldn't even have a conversation with Tony Stark! [Laughs] I have a theory that the more time Drax spends with Peter Quill, the more he's going to start to learn, perhaps, that people aren't always as literal as his species would assume.
I think GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY has opened a lot of doors for Marvel in terms of some of the more cosmic and/or quirky stuff from the comics possibly appearing in future movies from the studio. Very excited to learn more about Marvel's plans for their Phase 3 films.
GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY 2 will be in theaters on July 28, 2017.
