Like everyone else, we at FTN kinda loved Guardians of the Galaxy. But three things annoyed us. Firstly, Groot’s fate was devastating (well, before the credits anyway), secondly Nathan Fillion was WASTED and fianlly, Ronan was a horribly underwritten villain. But now we may yet have these issues addressed.

In a recent Q&A on his Facebook page, James Gunn addressed these (and other) points.

Obviously when Groot reappears in the little pot at the end of the movie, everyone was happy, however, Gunn was quick to say it may not be just that simple:  “Well, who says baby Groot is Groot and not Groot’s son. He might be dead,” he said. NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!

He also clears up Nebula’s outlook at the end of the movie: “Sometimes people are confused what happens to Nebula. She looks down for something to fall on, allows herself to fall on a Ravager craft, and takes out the Goth Ravager inside and flies away, leaving everyone to deal with this s*** themselves, because she’s stopped caring. She will be back.” More blue Karen Gillen? That works for us…

While he didn’t state that Ronan was dead, he did say he’ll not be in the sequel but he also didn’t write him off altogether.

As for Captain Mal himself? Well: “I would love to put Nathan [Fillion] in GotG2 if it could work out. He’s one of my very good friends and we love working together.”

Guardians of the Galaxy 2 is set to be released on May 5th, 2017.

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
