We spoke to James Gunn for an in-depth exploration of the making of two of Guardians Of The Galaxy‘s key characters – Rocket & Groot – for our Cool Issue (#222 – on-sale now).
Whilst we had him, we decided to ask the always-awesome Mr Gunn about Guardians‘ post-credit sequence.
And it’s lucky we did – with Guardians being the first Marvel movie to withhold its after-movie surprise from the press, you might be worried that it doesn’t actually exist.
Fear not, Gunn’s Guardians will have a post-credit sequence and, from the sounds of it, it’s going to be very special indeed.
Because it’s in the cosmic universe, because it’s its own thing, does that mean we aren’t going to get a post-credit sequence?
“Oh we have a post-credit sequence for you! Oh, do we ever! Yes, well we are connected, first of all we are connected…because of certain characters…but we have a post-credit sequence that’s all our own! That in all honestly we have just been doing the past few days so I think it’s going to be a great deal of fun for people.”
Obviously I can’t ask anything specific about it, but can I have just one word to sum up the scene?
“You don’t even want to know what it is! Pure joy, pure joy, that’s two words!”
We’ve only heard of Guardians being talked about in terms of being one-off film, it hasn’t been spoken about as being part of a franchise. Firstly, would you like to do sequels? Are you thinking about it in those terms?
“You know, I’ve thought about that in those terms from the beginning.
We always hope for a success and in light of success you know, there will be more films like this. So we just have to take it one day at a time and see where we end up.”
Guardians Of The Galaxy is released on 31 July.

After what must have been an incredibly difficult decision to walk away from long-term passion project, Ant-Man, Edgar Wright has settled on Baby Driver as his next directorial gig.
Deadline reports that the film will be “a collision of crime, action, music and sound”, which sounds like a perfect description of Wright’s gleefully kinetic style.
Baby Driver has apparently been in the works since 2008, and while no plot details have ever been revealed, it could be the musical Wright has been hinting at making for some time now.
“I’ve written a script which is kind of like a musical,” said Wright back in 2011. “Slightly a departure for me in some ways!”
A departure, for sure, and probably about as far removed a project from Ant-Man as is possible. Deadline reports that the film is on the fast-track, so hopefully we should discover some more details sooner rather than later…
Hayley Atwell has revealed that she will be making an appearance in Avengers: Age Of Ultron, with Joss Whedon having apparently written Peggy Carter into the script.
According to Atwell, this all came about thanks to a boozy night on the tiles with Whedon, who decided he wanted to have a crack at writing for her character.
“We went out drinking one night,” says Atwell, “and he was like, ‘You know, it would be great to write something for you.’ And I was like, ‘Yes, Joss, it would! It would be amazing!’”
Atwell’s star seems to be firmly on the up over at Marvel, with a standalone Agent Carter TV series also on the way next year. Atwell didn’t reveal how Peggy will be worked into the Avengers storyline, but we’re sure Whedon has a few ideas up his sleeve…
Co-starring the original cast, with additional support from Aaron Taylor-Johnson, Elizabeth Olsen and James Spader, Avengers: Age Of Ultron will open in the UK on 24 April 2015.
