As the Marvel Cinematic Universe preps for the next phase after the Avengers: Infinity War movies, Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 director James Gunn, in an interview with The Hollywood Reporter, says that there will be more stories set in the cosmic universe.

“Those scripts are already in the works. Kevin [Feige] and I talk about it all the time, we just had a meeting today. Discussing what is the next iteration of cosmic characters and where are the characters that we’ve already created going to go in the next batch of films.”

Avengers: Infinity War will help to bring in the next phase of films, which will include two more Spider-Man films, the third installment of Guardians of the Galaxy and also Captain Marvel. With the inclusion of the Marvel Cosmic Universe, more of the films in the next phase will probably take place on other planets besides Earth if they’re including more cosmic characters.
