Fans of the Marvel Cinematic Universe have been wondering if the crossover between Avengers and Guardians of the Galaxy would happen anytime soon. A media outlet pointed out to a hint to that possibility.
According to Metro, Guardians of The Galaxy director James Gunn himself dropped a clue that points to a crossover between the two Marvel groups. The alleged hintcomes by way of Gunn's reply to a fan's tweet in a Q&A.
When a fan named Mohammad Aldinnur (@MAldinnur) asked the director on Twitter as to why there is no "Guardian" in Avengers: Age of Ultron or in the upcoming Captain America: Civil War, Gunn responded by simply saying that the Guardians are "currently in a different galaxy."
Gunn using the word "currently" could suggest that there's a possibility that the Earth-based Avengers will eventually meet the Andromeda galaxy-based Guardians of the Galaxy, in the the upcoming two-part Avengers: Infinity War films.
Last year, Gunn told Screen Junkies that fans should stop thinking about the Guardians of the Galaxy meeting up with the Avengers because each has their own agenda.
The last line is ellusive enough to make us think. After all, the Infinity Stones would be central to what's happening in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, with Thanos showing up on recent MCU films' post-credits.
Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 will hit theaters on May 5, 2017. Avengers: Infinity War - Part 1 will be released on May 4, 2018; Part II will hit theaters May 3, 2019.
So do you think we'll see the Guardians of the Galaxy meet the Avengers in the Infinity War movies?
