Wait, the 'Guardians' aren't going to meet 'The Avengers'?
When Marvel announced the two-part "Avengers: Infinity War" movies for 2018 and 2019 most fans assumed this would mean that the Guardians of the Galaxy would somehow be involved. Guardians member Gamora played a key role in the 1992 comic book mini-series "The Infinity War" and her father, Thanos, was at the center of it. It just makes sense right? Well, for the moment, it doesn't.
In an interview with Screen Junkies promoting the "Guardians" release on DVD and Blu-ray, director James Gunn lowered expectations.
"We really are separate from the Avengers and I don’t think people should assume too many things about the Guardians play in all this. We have our own galaxy to take care of. We have our own galaxy to save. Earth is the Avengers’ province," Gunn says. "Thinking that everything is going to come together in a perfect way is not necessarily the way it’s going to happen."
That being said, he didn't completely rule it out. There's till hope true-believers!
