Whether or not James Gunn will ever return to the Marvel Cinematic Universe again following Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 remains to be observed. Nonetheless, the filmmaker has expressed some curiosity in an R-rated spin-off involving none other than Drax.

“I think they will, I assume they will, I’m virtually certain they will. Not ‘Guardians’ while, since ‘Guardians’ are family members films, so it really is distinct. Individuals are like, ‘Finally, they enable you do R ranking. What would ‘Guardians’ be like if that was R rated?’ I am like, ‘But it really is not.'”

While the Guardians of the Galaxy motion pictures, as a entire, may possibly not be suited for that path, James Gunn does experience that Drax, on his own, could be a good in good shape. Talking further more, Gunn stated he would love to do “Barbarian Drax” as an R-rated movie. However it does appear much more hypothetical than anything that is essentially on the desk right now.

“I could go off and make a Drax motion picture that’s R-rated, that I would appreciate to do, like barbarian Drax. But the ‘Guardians’ movies are fables, and I don’t think of them like that. I don’t produce them like that. It really is a distinct sort of motion picture, and you can have some gore and some terrifying darkness in there and matters like that, which is good, but it’s not the rock and roll of ‘Suicide Squad.'”

And Disney+ is not specifically the household for R-rated content anyhow. As for what Marvel films may get the R-rated procedure? Deadpool 3 is in progress at present and that feels like the safest wager. The future Blade reboot has currently been ruled out as a chance. Even nevertheless it will not likely be R-rated, Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 is envisioned to start filming afterwards this calendar year. This information will come to us through IndieWire.
