Marvel Originally Planned Guardians of the Galaxy Shorts
Thanks to their appearances in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, the Guardians of the Galaxy at the moment are family names. Today, everybody loves Star-Lord, Drax, Gamora, Rocket Raccoon, and, of course, Groot. Before the first film, though, Marvel Studios had an idea to introduce these then-largely unknown characters to followers in a fairly unconventional approach.
Prompted by a narrative from the new The Story of Marvel Studios book, Guardians of the Galaxy director James Gunn explained on Twitter that again earlier than 2014’s first Guardians, Marvel was contemplating making 4 Guardians quick movies (known as “One-Shots” in the MCU) that may introduce every of the core characters. Marvel would then slot three of them in entrance of the three Marvel films popping out main as much as Guardians (nearly in a Pixar/Pixar short kind of approach), with the fourth one positioned earlier than Guardians itself. The first three have been Rocket/Groot, Drax, and Gamora, whereas the fourth one was Star-Lord. Gunn says solely the Rocket/Groot quick, which informed the story of how they met, was ever written although. It was additionally totally storyboarded and Alan Tudyk had a role. The Star-Lord one was mainly simply the now opening of Guardians of the Galaxy, wherein Peter loses his mother after which goes into area with Yondu.
“We didn’t end up doing it because I realized it was ridiculous for me to be writing & directing 4 short films at the same time as I was prepping an enormous world-building movie,” Gunn tweeted. “It was really hard for me to admit it was too much for me & I was sad deciding I couldn’t do them (especially Rocket & Groot). But, you know, maybe someday!”
Since then, although, Gunn has directed two Guardians films, with a 3rd on the approach, helped oversee a Guardians of the Galaxy theme park ride (with a second on the way), and helmed an upcoming vacation particular, to not point out always having input when the characters present up in films like Avengers: Infinity War or Thor: Love and Thunder.
We’ll subsequent see all of the Guardians in Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3, which begins filming soon and is out May 5, 2023. Star-Lord (at the least) will even seem in Thor: Love and Thunder, out July 8, 2022.
