We already know that the Guardians of the Galaxy will only get a trilogy of films and the holiday special focusing on Groot. But is it possible that James Gunn is also working on a prequel series that could air on Disney+? The Suicide Squad director has just spoken up about the rumors and shared an interesting reason why it couldn't be true!

There have been speculations of a Guardians of the Galaxy prequel that would follow Gamora and Nebula during their early days when they were being raised by Thanos. Interestingly, it is stated that the show will explore the "family-like" relationship that the Mad Titan had with his daughters.

Not surprisingly, James Gunn was quick to react to the rumors. The filmmaker shared the tweet and left a wry comment for the caption. Take a look at his retweet below.

“lol no - he tortured them, not exactly a 'family-like' relationship,” Gunn wrote.

There is little doubt that Gamora had an odd relationship with Thanos considering he took her from her own family and raised her to become a warrior like him. Although the Mad Titan may have thought he was being fatherly to Gamora, she viewed it as being turned into a weapon just like her sister Nebula. Needless to say, there's nothing "family-like" about their relationship although Gamora and Nebula grew to view each other as sisters who survived the ordeal together.

For now, it doesn't look like we're getting a Guardians of the Galaxy prequel series. However, fans can rest assured that James Gunn is hard at work on the third Marvel Cinematic Universe film in his trilogy.

Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 will bring back Zoe Saldana as Gamora and Karen Gillan as Nebula. They will be joined by Chris Pratt, Pom Klementieff, Dave Bautista, Vin Diesel, Bradley Cooper, and Will Poulter. The film is scheduled for release on May 5, 2023.
