- GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY
MTV caught up with The Avengers writer/director Joss Whedon at TIFF and one of the topics they broached was how Marvel is planning on making Guardians of the Galaxy their next big franchise.
He did admit that he was a little skeptical about the film at first, but when Marvel told him that they were looking at James Gunn he said they'd be fine.
He added that Gunn has barely started on the script. "He has a very twisted take on it, but it all comes from a real love for the material. It's going to be hard for the humans to keep up. I know he's going to come from left field and I'm going to go, 'What?' And then, 'Of course, why didn't I think of that?' And then I'm going to beat him!"
