Even if the fate of the galaxy will be in their hands, the Avengers and Guardians will still be butting heads. The cast of Marvel‘s Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 revealed that the team-up between the two groups won’t go as smoothly as some may hope.
When asked what the initial meeting between the Avengers and the Guardians of the Guardians will be like in Infinity War in an interview with Fandango, the cast had the following to say:
“We were so cocky, ‘We’re the Guardians of the Galaxy!’ But it was super exciting — the fact that they’re bringing every character in the Marvel universe together and that this super villain is such a prominent figure amongst the Guardians of the Galaxy gives our level of importance quite a boost,” said Zoe Saldana.
“When we come onto set as the Guardians, we are the Guardians. Anybody stepping onto set with us has to deal with all of us. There are usually one or two Avengers. We are the Guardians, we come as that and carry a scene like that and we do business as usual, which is a lot of chemistry, a lot of interaction amongst ourselves. And the Russos were very encouraging of that. I think we’ve established ourselves and we deserve to be right up there with the Avengers. I think we’re just as strong, if not stronger, as a unit, ‘cause we’re a family,” said Dave Bautista.
Zoe Saldana also let slip some details regarding where the Avengers and the Guardians first meet.
“We’re also in space, so we’re not being held by gravity. And you know we’re stronger,” she said.
So with all this information, it’s possible we’ll be seeing some infighting similar to the first Avengers film when the heroes came together. But, perhaps Thanos will provide to big of a threat for an actual fight between the groups and we’ll be left with a lot of internal tension.
