GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY & THE AVENGERS 'Likely' to Team Up in Future Marvel Movies
According to GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY director James Gunn, The Avengers could soon be teaming up with Marvel's newest cinematic team.
"We talked about all sorts of possibilities [for a crossover] and I kind of know what the basic plan is," director James Gunn said to Yahoo! Movies. "That could or could not include a couple of Avengers and a couple of Guardians meeting up, or all of the Avengers and all of the Guardians. But, we do inhabit the same universe and they're pretty big personalities that are likely to, at some point or another, run into each other."
In GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY, epic, brash adventurer Peter Quill finds himself the object of an unrelenting bounty hunt after stealing a mysterious orb coveted by Ronan, a powerful villain with ambitions that threaten the entire universe.
To evade the ever-persistent Ronan, Quill is forced into an uneasy truce with a quartet of disparate misfits-Rocket, a gun-toting raccoon, Groot, a tree-like humanoid, the deadly and enigmatic Gamora and the revenge-driven Drax the Destroyer. But when Quill discovers the true power of the orb and the menace it poses to the cosmos, he must do his best to rally his ragtag rivals for a last, desperate stand-with the galaxy's fate in the balance.
The big screen adaptation also stars Chris Pratt, Zoe Saldana, Dave Bautista, Vin Diesel, Bradley Cooper, Michael Rooker, John C. Reilly, Glenn Close and Benicio del Toro.
The film hits theaters tomorrow, August 1.
Joss Whedon will direct the highly-anticipated sequel to THE AVENGERS, starring Robert Downey Jr., Chris Hemsworth, Mark Ruffalo, Chris Evans, Scarlett Johansson, Jeremy Renner, Samuel L. Jackson, Aaron Taylor-Johnson, Elizabeth Olsen, James Spader, Cobie Smulders, Thomas Kretschmann and Paul Bettany.
AVENGERS: AGE OF ULTRON will hit theaters on May 1, 2015.
