Joss Whedon has no plans for ‘Guardians of the Galaxy’ to appear in ‘The Avengers 2’


A little over a year ago The Avengers became one of the most successful films of all time. Many people probably questioned where Marvel would go from there. We know now that ‘the stars’ is the answer. In a shocking bit of news, it was revealed soon after that Guardians of the Galaxy, a lesser known team of ragtag space faring super heroes, would get their own feature film.

With all the crossovers and shared universes, it’s only natural to wonder if this team, or any of its members, will show up in The Avengers 2. Over at Bleeding Cool, Joss Whedon addressed this:

“We’re following Guardians at Shepperton [with Avengers 2] but we won’t be swapping cast members. Every movie is its own thing and has to be. Unless I take a lot of peyote and write a very different draft… and I’m not ruling that out.”

So, he’s not ruling anything out, but it seems clear he doesn’t intend to include them. This might be a wise decision. It was near-miraculous that The Avengers worked so well with such a large cast. And Whedon already plans to add a few more heroes like The Falcon, Quicksilver and The Scarlet Witch. Adding a whole other team into the mix might not create organized chaos, but simply chaos.
