GUARDIANS of the GALAXY Connects to AVENGERS 3 and Features Thanos
With each new Marvel Studios release, fans are not only eager to dig into whatever solo adventure is on display, but also to see how the film connects to the larger Marvel Cinematic Universe as a whole. The recent Captain America: The Winter Soldier serves as a prequel of sorts to Avengers: Age of Ultron, setting up the story for Joss Whedon’s highly anticipated ensemble sequel. We still have one Marvel film left to go before Age of Ultron hits theaters in 2015, but it’s looking more and more like Guardians of the Galaxy will be more removed from the immediate MCU than the other films—at least for now.
In the latest issue of EW, Guardians writer/director James Gunn spoke a bit about the film, confirming that big baddie Thanos will indeed appear in motion-capture form, and teasing that the pic very much connects to Avengers 3. Read Gunn’s full comments after the jump, along with a few new images from the unabashedly weird-looking Guardians of the Galaxy.
