James Gunn only recently completed filming on Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2, but he's already got more Marvel work in the can. As it turns out, Gunn directed the next three Stan Lee cameos, including his appearance in Doctor Strange.
“If I’m writing for Stan, why give him one line when I can give him a thousand?" Gunn said on Facebook. "I just kept throwing lines at him one after the other, until we were all doubled over with laughter. Someday, after you’ve seen the movie, maybe Marvel Studios will let me share some of those with you.”
"And it was definitely one of the most fun times I've ever had on set. There are few people in this world I love and admire more and have more fun with than Stan Lee. Even though he does love breaking my, and everyone else's balls (I introduced him to Tom Holland for the first time and he said, 'Everyone says you're great! Personally, I don't see it').
Now that filming on Guardians of the Galaxy 2 has wrapped, Gunn has remained non-commital about doing a third film in the series. But he is open to more Marvel work in the future - namely on one of Marvel's Netflix series.
“If it was in the right circumstances, maybe," Gunn explained in a Facebook Q&A. "But it would never be one that was preexisting,” he told fans during a Facebook Live Q&A. “It would have to be the pilot of a new show.”
Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 is due out in theaters May 5, 2017.
