How did the Avengers understand the Guardians? Here's what James Gunn says

It was a question that clearly has been plaguing fans for sometime now

'Avengers: Infinity War' was a dream come true for fans (before it literally withered away into dust), as it was a grand and epic crossover that they had been waiting for. The Guardians met the Avengers, and together, they struggled to defeat Thanos. However, that didn't work. Thanos snapped his fingers, and half the universe was reduced to dust, and the Guardians with Spider-Man (Tom Holland) were one of the many casualties. Gamora had been sacrificed in Vormir for the soul stone, before this. But of course, after a complicated time heist in 'Avengers: Endgame',  they returned for the final battle with the Mad Titan.

A question that clearly has been plaguing fans is, how did the Avengers understand the Guardians, who were aliens? Well, 'GOTG' filmmaker James Gunn has an answer to that. During a Q & A answer session on Instagram, Gunn was asked this question and he answered, "The Guardians cybernetically embedded translators work both ways."

Well, that explains a lot. Even though we don't need too much technicality when it comes to the joyful franchise, this piece of information always helps. 

Gunn revealed other tidbits, including the fact that a character would be expected to die in 'Guardians Of The Galaxy Vol 3'. Unfortunately, there will not be a GOTG 4, as Gann has emphatically said that he has no such plans. "I absolutely never said I wouldn't do a Vol 2," Gunn told a fan in the Q&A. "As I planned to do a trilogy from the beginning if the first one worked. I have no plans to do a 4th," he wrote.

As Marvel and Disney have had to reshuffle their schedules due to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic, the third 'Guardians' film can only be expected in 2023. Gunn is busy with 'Suicide Squad', which will release next year. After making two films for Marvel, this is the filmmaker's first foray into DC.

Asked if he prefers Harley Quinn or Joker, he answered, "Oh I love the Joker but Harley is one of my favorite characters I've ever written. In fact, she's probably my favorite comic character whose personality was well-defined before I wrote her for the screen. She's an incredible companion to have while writing her insane actions and dialogue. Did I say I LOVED her????" Not surprising, considering he wrote that Margot Robbie, who has played the role of Harley Quinn in the first 'Suicide Squad' and 'Birds Of Prey', is 'his hero'. 

When quizzed on his favorite Joker, Gunn answered Joaquin Phoenix. Phoenix acted in the origin story of the sadistic DC criminal mastermind, and this swept many prestigious awards. Phoenix bagged a Golden Globe for Best Actor, along with the Academy Award. 

Asked about his favorite Spider-Man, Gunn answered 'Tom Holland', who is the third to take on the role after Tobey Maguire and Andrew Garfield.

Recently, it was announced that San Diego Comic-Con has been officially canceled due to the pandemic. Fans usually eagerly wait for Comic-Con as it is the place where studios discuss their latest projects and products.

Gunn tweeted yesterday, "It's the right thing to do, but I'm still sad to hear about #SDCC being canceled this year. I'll miss all of you. We as creators, studios, and publishers will have to find ways to make it up to you the fans in other ways."
