Every director probably wishes he or she could go back to their movies and correct or change something. The final product, while good, in a director’s mind could have been better. Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 director James Gunn feels this way about his films as well.
Being one of the most open Marvel directors when it comes to answering fan questions, James Gunn is constantly doing Facebook Q&As and answering many a fan’s questions regarding his work. In particular, he’s usually asked about the two marvel films he’s already directed. A fan asked him if he had a “least favorite scene or one you wish you could’ve done a bit different” in reference to both Guardians films.
James Gunn responded by saying that he would’ve cleaned up some of the “villain plot stuff” and that the studio at the time had a hand in what went into the movie.
“There is some messy villain plot stuff in the first movie I’d like to deal with again. There was a committee working for Marvel at the time (now defunct) who had a lot of input, and that was primarily where it ended up. It just got a little messy. My favorite part of both movies is probably the Cat Stevens montage at the end of Vol. 2. It still gets me emotionally. I also still love Drax petting Rocket in Vol. 1.”
James Gunn is referencing the “now defunct” Marvel Creative Committee that was eventually separated from Marvel Studios.
Directed by James Gunn, the film stars Chris Pratt, Zoe Saldana, Dave Bautista Vin Diesel, Bradley Cooper, Michael Rooker, Karen Gillan, Pom Klementieff, Elizabeth Debicki, Sylvester Stallone and Kurt Russell.
Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 will be released digitally in HD, 4K Ultra HD, and Disney Movies Anywhere on August 8 followed by a 4K Ultra HD, Blu-ray, and DVD release on August 22.
