James Gunn

We’ve all got to start somewhere, and before James Gunn broke out as the writer/director behind “Slither,” which started him down the path of becoming a blockbuster moviemaker for Marvel, he penned the script for 2002’s “Scooby-Doo.” While the film isn’t particularly well-remembered, it was successful enough to spawn a sequel, but if the studio had been ballsy enough at the time to go with Gunn’s original vision, we would be talking about a very different picture.

Just for a change, Marvel Studios are currently opening their gates to dump trucks of money that are being delivered to them. 15 movies in, and the company haven’t really had a true flop, and this past weekend’s “Guardians Of The Galaxy Vol. 2” looks like it’ll be one of their biggest, taking nearly $150 million in three days domestically to add to the $275 million or so it’s racked up in ten days in the rest of the world.

In 2014’s Guardians of the Galaxy, James Gunn introduced the world to a team of miscreants and misfits forced to come together and save the galaxy. To put it bluntly, they’re a bunch of a-holes. With the sequel, titled Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2, the latest feature from Marvel Studios, the writer-director is tasked with delivering a story that not only continues the epic and irreverent adventures of Peter Quill (Chris Pratt) and his gang of lovable weirdos, but furthers their evolution as characters as well. Set to the ’70s soft rock stylings of Awesome Mix Vol. 2, the sequel picks up a few months after the first film ended. After saving Xandar from Ronan the Accuser, the Guardians have become famous throughout the universe as world-class mercenaries, selling their services to the highest bidder.
