Guardians Director James Gunn Plays Down Talk Of MCU Reboot After Avengers 4


What lies beyond the release of Captain Marvel and the as-yet-untitled Avengers 4 in 2019?

That’s a very good question, and it’s one that has been presented to Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige umpteen times over the past six months, particularly during the press rounds for Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2. In the interest of keeping spoilers at bay, the MCU architect has consistently tiptoed around the finer details of Marvel’s blueprint for 2019 and beyond, but when Phase 4 kicks off, James Gunn and his Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 will seemingly have a marked effect on the future of the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

However that may be, it appears talk of an MCU reboot is a little premature, after James Gunn took to Twitter to set the record straight. First spotted by Screen Rant, the fan-favorite director went on record to clarify that, despite rumors to the contrary, Avengers 4 won’t bring about a total overhaul of Marvel’s cinematic universe. Perhaps that means Mark Ruffalo’s recent comments about the fate of Earth’s Mightiest Heroes in Avengers: Infinity War were also made in jest? We’ll find out soon enough.

Rest assured, the Guardians of the Galaxy will continue on in their current form. Not only that, but in a separate Tweet, Gunn also reaffirmed plans to maintain the same roster of A-Holes for the foreseeable future – at least, until such a time as when Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 4 becomes a viable option.

Per Twitter:

Next up for the Marvel Cinematic Universe is the release of Thor: Ragnarok on November 3rd of this year, followed by Ryan Coogler’s Black Panther solo movie. And after that? Avengers: Infinity War, which looks set to become the event movie to end all event movies on May 4th, 2018. It’ll be followed in quick succession by Avengers 4 the following year.
