James Gunn Reveals His Favourite Guardians Of The Galaxy Character
Filmmaker James Gunn might be one of Marvel‘s greatest discoveries. He brought on many fun and unique characters to the big screen. However, his career before Marvel was not so hidden either. His original films offered a wonderful taste to classic characters and we love that. Then again, which of his characters does he love the most? Who else to answer this than Gunn himself? The filmmaker did a quick Ask me Anything session on Instagram and when its Gunn, the topic of Guardians of the Galaxy is not so far behind.
James Gunn Loves “So Many” Of His Characters!
During an Ask Me Anything session on Instagram, James Gunn answered which character he loves the most.
“So many. Rocket, Groot, Boltie in Super, so many characters in Squad, the mayor in Slither.”
The thing about Rocket and Groot is that they are the two characters from Guardians of the Galaxy movies which Gunn created and directed. He has always stayed appreciative of the characters, even saying at one point: “Rocket is me, feeling outcast and forgotten.”
Many people may be unaware of Boltie, a character played by Ellen Page in James Gunn’s superhero dark comedy movie Super. Boltie is the twisted sidekick to Riann Wilson’s Crimson Bolt. Next, The Mayor in Slither is Gregg Henry’s Jack MacReady guy.
Speaking of James Gunn and his upcoming movies, his latest movie is DC‘s The Suicide Squad. While Marvel has brought him back for Guardians of the Galaxy Vol 3, he will only be starting that project after completing his work with DC. Ther is not much we can say about this movie, The Suicide Squad. What we do know, however, is that it will feature Margot Robbie as Harley Quinn, Viola Davis as Amanda Waller, Joel Kinnaman as Rick Flag and Jai Courtney as Captain Boomerang. The film is going to see the live-action debut of many characters. With a release date of August 2021, that is a wait we will gladly do.
