According to ComicBook.com on Feb. 21, James Gunn, director of "Guardians of the Galaxy", decided to meet with Dan Abnett and Andy Lanning, who had worked on the comic book by the same name. The gathering was for the purpose of re-imagining the story.
Gunn wants to gain insight from the comic creators to delve into his project and Gunn showed them around the work area then "tweeted" the meeting experience.
“We showed them around the production office today to show them some of the amazing stuff they inspired! We wouldn't be making this movie without them! AND they’re super nice guys to boot!”
Andy Lanning is a British comic book writer and inker and typically collaborates with novelist and writer, Dan Abnett, who is known for his work with Marvel, Marvel UK, and some contribution to DC Comics.
Andy Lanning even tweeted his own response:
"Great day with @JamesGunn, thanks matey. Guardians are in safe hands! Awesome, this film will rock!"
James Gunn consults with NASA
Last year, Gunn also consulted with National Aeronautics and Space Administration about natural disasters, space travel, climate change, and other worldly situations. Most of which seemed to have nothing to do with the movie, but he did bring to the table his inquiries on NASA's opinions on alien life and rocket propulsion.
Perhaps in some Gunn's scenes he might demonstrate a more representative measure of motion in space. Maybe in the "post credit" scene where "Earth's Mightiest Heroes" get tired of Hulk's shenanigans and will show the portion of the story where he intercepts a rogue satellite which can be pretty tricky for real life astronauts.
