Digital Spy recently spoke with Guardians of the Galaxy director James Gunn, who said that if The Avengers are The Beatles, than The Guardians of the Galaxy are like the Rolling Stones. You can read his comments below.
The movie hits theaters on August 1.
Gunn how how the film fits next to other Marvel titles: "We fit in, we are Marvel-cosmic, just the outer space wing of Marvel and it is pretty fun. I think of the Avengers as The Beatles and the Guardians are the Rolling Stones. That is really how I feel about the groups."
Gunn on if the film will retain his dark sense of humor: "When I turned in my first draft to Marvel, they were really happy with the screenplay, which of course I was overjoyed with. The only comment that they had is that they just wanted it to be 'more James Gunn', and that's what I did. I said 'It's your funeral!'"
