James Gunn Keeping Close Eye on The Guardians in Avengers: Infinity War

Guardians of the Galaxy director James Gunn isn't so fond of football, so while the rest of the country hustled up to watch the National Football League's championship game during the Super Bowl last weekend, Gunn decided to go live on Facebook and talk about Guardians of the Galaxy 2 instead.

In his online discussions, Gunn revealed that he's making sure that his precious space thugs-turned-heroes keep their brassy humor when they appear in Avengers: Infinity War, the massive Marvel superhero mash up which Gunn is working on as executive producer.

"Am I going to have any involvement with Infinity War, yes, I'm an executive producer on Infinity War. I've been working hard with the Russo Brothers, the Marvel guys, Kevin Feige to make sure that any of the characters that I'm involved with that are in that movie are well taken care of and are as funny as they should be, and is as honest and truthful as they should be, so I've been dealing with them all the time. I've been talking to the actors on set every single day as we go through production and it's been a great experience."

While his protectiveness of the Guardians isn't much of a surprise given the fact that the Guardians of the Galaxy film franchise is Gunn's working, it's great to see how far the director goes to make sure his characters are being treated well in other films in the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 premieres in theaters on May 5, 2017 while Avengers: Infinity War makes its cinematic debut on May 4, 2018.
