James Gunn staying at Marvel to oversea Cosmic Universe after Guardians 3

James Gunn is set to oversee the Marvel cosmic universe in the near future

Guardians Of The Galaxy director James Gunn may well end up having a far bigger role in the Marvel Cinematic Universe than we originally thought.

This week, Gunn told IGN that after Guardians Of The Galaxy Vol. 3 he will continue working with Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige in order to oversee the films coming up in the Cosmic Universe sector of the MCU.

“We talk about it all the time,” Gunn said. “It’s already a part of what I’m doing with Marvel and the conversations that Kevin and I have every day. When we’re talking about Guardians of the Galaxy 3, and that story, that’s a story that will lead to other stories. It’s innate to the DNA that that’s the end of a trilogy but it’s the beginning of a whole other element of the Marvel Cosmic universe. That’s a part of what I’m doing now.”

Gunn also recently revealed that the Guardians Of The Galaxy saga will finally conclude with Vol. 3, which is set to take place years after Vol. 2.

Guardians Of The Galaxy Vol. 2 starred Chris Pratt as Star-Lord, Zoe Saldana as Gamora, Dave Bautista as Drax, the voice of Bradley Cooper as Rocket Raccoon, the voice of Vin Diesel as Baby Groot, Michael Rooker as Yondu, Kurt Russell as Ego, Karen Gillan as Nebula, Pom Klementieff as Mantis, Sylvester Stallone as Stakar Ogord, Elizabeth Debicki as Ayesha, Laura Haddock as Meredith Quill and Sean Gunn as Kraglin.
