Guardians of the Galaxy director James Gunn wasn’t sure if the film would be a success.
One of Marvel’s most riskiest undertakings was bringing James Gunn’s space opera Guardians of the Galaxy to the big-screen. Since the team’s debut in 2014, the Guardians of the Galaxy have become one of Marvel’s most popular teams, as well as a pivotal force in their slate of live-action films. In hindsight, it’s safe to say that Guardians of the Galaxy was always poised to be the cultural phenomenon that it currently is but things were different for James Gunn when he first got the job.
When asked by a fan on Twitter if he always knew that Guardians of the Galaxy was going to be a success, James Gunn responded by saying he wasn’t quite as sure.
I was confident I could make a good movie & that I was uniquely suited for the project. I wasn’t sure it was going to be a success, but my gut told me it had the kind of color, fun, emotion, and characters people were hungering for in their tentpole movies. https://t.co/2pR5ectTLw

James Gunn’s confidence is one of the primary reasons as to why the Guardians of the Galaxy was able to prosper as it was wholly unique in a time where most superhero films were obsessed with being dark and gritty. Since then, films from both DC and Marvel has honed in on Guardians of the Galaxy’s vibrant visuals and team-drive narrative to create brand new films. It’s also quite humbling for James Gunn to relay that he wasn’t fully sure if the film would be the runaway success that it eventually became. Since then, Guardians of the Galaxy has received another sequel, with another on the way from director James Gunn once his duties on The Suicide Squad are completed.
