It’s a well-known fact that Marvel Studios is planning ahead for the Marvel Cinematic Universe and that they have films set in place until at least until 2020. But the only people who know what the MCU will look like after Avengers: Infinity War and Avengers 4 are those who are working very closely on the films. It’s pretty safe to say that nothing will be the same after the two mega-ensembles, but the one person who might have the answers is the director of Guardians of the Galaxy and its sequel, James Gunn.
During a Facebook Live Session, Gunn was able to give us a small peek into the future of the MCU. A future where Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 not only helps set up the next 10 to 20 years of the MCU but also expands its cosmic universe. More on the story and the video below.

By 2014, the Marvel Cinematic Universe was already an unstoppable juggernaut. Still relishing in the success of 2012’s The Avengers making over $1.5 billion at the box office, the MCU took a chance on a rag tag group of not-so familiar superheroes, The Guardians of the Galaxy. For 2014’s Guardians of the Galaxy, director James Gunn (Slither) blended the perfect mixture of action and comedy, and made some of the best gambles in the history of film casting. The doofus from Parks and Recreation, a WWE wrestler, Vin Diesel to voice a walking tree who says three words”¦ this bizarre recipe generated $773 million in domestic profits and proved that the MCU was borderline infallible. Guardians just felt different from the other good, yet generic superhero outings and it remains one of the most beloved films of its genre.
Not all Marvel Cinematic Universe films are built the same, but they are all pieces of a larger puzzle. Each one of them serves some sort of purpose to tell its own story while also moving the universe towards a certain direction. So with each and every new installment comes new praises and criticisms.
While it is easy to say that every new Marvel Studios film is better than the last, the truth is, they are not. Some are better than others. With Spider-Man: Homecoming hitting theaters this weekend, I decided to rank all 16 MCU films that have been released, from worst to the best.
It is a delicious time for movies and television! Cult favorite Twin Peaks returned to television, debuting on Showtime on May 19th, and earlier this month, Guardians of the Galaxy returned with Vol. 2 to the delight of Marvel fans everywhere. Now you can display your “fansession” by proudly wearing pieces from Allison Hourcade’s new line in her ever-growing Rocklove Jewelry collection.
Are you a Guardians of the Galaxy super fan? Do you see yourself as the perfect mix of clever, funny, and sassy like Star Lord/Peter Quill (Chris Pratt)? Have you, like many fans, been wondering what in the galaxy his new shirt from Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 means?
Well, not only can you channel Star Lord himself with a new piece of geek apparel, but you can be “in the know” regarding this new curious wardrobe selection.
