As casting rumors continue to pile up for Guardians of the Galaxy one person you can trust about the film is its director James Gunn. Gunn has been active on the “question and answer” website Formspring (via Daily Blam!) for a long time and he recently said a few things about the film.
Though nothing too specific, Gunn did reveal that much of the film’s casting will be based out of England where production is located but the biggest tease he gave up was the film’s setting: a different galaxy. Gunn confirmed the events of “Guardians” will not take place in the Milky Way galaxy where our solar system is located but that its story is very much rooted in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. So if you thought we might get to see Rocket Raccoon blasting martians from Mars, sorry.
Gunn says he won’t be sharing much more about the film now as he wants to maintain some secrecy for the time being. He also wants you to make sure you don’t believe every casting rumor or dispute you hear.
