James Gunn Stakes His Confidence A Strong Sequel, Confirms His Return For Guardians Of The Galaxy, Vol. 3

46903548.cached

“So, yes, I’m returning to write and direct Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3.”

With that simple statement in a Facebook post on his page, earlier today, James Gunn locked in some great news, prior to the release of Vol. 2, coming May 5th. In the post, Gunn talks about the difficulties of putting together the sequel to the surprise hit, the desire not to do a third, solely for the money, and not wanting to, “become a part of that dishonorable tradition of pretending the third one doesn’t exist.”

He closes the post with shoutouts to the entire Marvel Studios team, Marvel comics, Stan Lee and of course, the Guardians. Truly a classy post and one that shows the heart and quality of the talent Marvel consistently puts together. Looking forward to the opening of Guardians Of The Galaxy, Vol. 2 on May 5th. You know we’ll be discussing it in detail!

This is going to make MANY people, including this writer pretty excited, Squirrel Girl will officially  be on your television screen soon.

Via variety.com

The TV adaptation of Marvel’s “New Warriors” has been given a straight-to-series order at Freeform, Marvel announced Wednesday. The series will mark Marvel’s first live-action scripted comedy show.

The network has ordered ten 30-minute episodes slated to debut in 2018. The series is about six young people with powers living and working together. They want to make a difference in the world, even if their powers are not quite as impressive as those of The Avengers. They will have to learn to use their abilities to help people while also struggling with growing up.

The series will feature fan-favorite Squirrel Girl, a.k.a Doreen Green. She is confident and has the powers of a squirrel, meaning she’s acrobatic, can fight and talk to other squirrels. Her most important trait is that she has faith in people and teaches them to believe in themselves

This is the second Marvel series order at Freeform. The network also has Marvel’s “Cloak & Dagger” underway, which will star Aubrey Joseph and Olivia Holt.

“’Marvel’s New Warriors’ have always been fan favorites and now particularly with the addition of Squirrel Girl, they are Marvel Television favorites as well,” said Marvel’s head of television and series executive producer Jeph Loeb. “After the amazing experience we’ve had with Freeform on ‘Marvel’s Cloak & Dagger’ we can’t think of a better place for our young heroes.”

The series is co-produced by Marvel Television and ABC Signature Studios. Loeb will executive produce along with Jim Chory.
