Seriously, how much bigger can things really get in the Marvel Cinematic Universe? Well, there’s no end in sight, and while things have gotten pretty epic already, there’s no denying that there’s still room to grow, with more cosmic entities to tackle in the Marvel Universe as a whole. While we have seen bits and pieces of it in the Thor and Guardians of the Galaxy movies, there’s so much to be explored.
We assume also be getting a heavy dose of of the cosmic side of things with the upcoming Avengers: Infinity War and Avengers 4. However, it sounds like they really won’t be delving into that world until well into Phase 4.
Speaking with IGN, Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 director James Gunn discussed how his involvement in the MCU moving forward may actually extend past Vol. 3 and into helping to establish the Cosmic Universe going forward.
“We talk about it all the time. It’s already a part of what I’m doing with Marvel and the conversations that Kevin and I have every day. When we’re talking about Guardians of the Galaxy 3, and that story, that’s a story that will lead to other stories. It’s innate to the DNA that that’s the end of a trilogy but it’s the beginning of a whole other element of the Marvel Cosmic universe. That’s a part of what I’m doing now.”
It certainly feels like he’s already done a great job in helping to shepherd in the tone of that universe. From what we can tell, Thor: Ragnarok seems to carry some of the DNA of the tone Gunn set up in that first Guardians of the Galaxy movie. With bright colors and goofy characters permeating, it sounds like he’s well on his way to helping to expand the universe beyond Earth.
What do you hope to see Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 bring to the MCU? We already know Adam Warlock will be making his debut there, but what other vital aspects of the Cosmic Universe deserve their chance in the movie spotlight?
