According to Comic Book Movie on Jan. 17, in an interview with James Gunn about his project film "Guardians of the Galaxy", the director expressed how this group of characters become attached to one another as their own family. Gunn also explained that demonstrating non-complacency or lack of apathy in the film could demonstrate to the general public that it's okay to "give a sh**".
"It's about a bunch of people that don't have a family and they learn to love each other. And I think it's about giving a shit. I think we live in a world where we're taught that not giving a shit is the coolest thing, and this is a movie that says it's really OK to give a sh**".
Gunn also talked about how he had become involved in the film. Apparently, he could already visually see how the movie would wind up and as a result, had written a 20-page document and rushing it over to show Marvel Studios his creation. Typically, he had a twisted theme to most of his films, but Marvel didn't seem to mind that Gunn went outside his own box.
"No no. In fact, it's a 100 percent true story that when I turned in mu first draft they were really happy with the screenplay - which of course I was overjoyed with - and the only comment they had, which was basically from Joss Whedon, was tat the wanted it to be 'more James Gunn'. So that's what I did... I said, 'It's your funeral!'"
"Guardians of the Galaxy" is scheduled to be released in theaters Aug. 1.
