GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY VOL 2 DIRECTOR DISCUSSES FILM'S CONTINUITY WITH THE MARVEL CINEMATIC UNIVERSE
12/07/16 @ 12:44 pm EST

Guardians of the Galaxy

When Iron Man premiered in 2008, no one could have predicted the force that the Marvel Cinematic Universe would become. The superhero film was the first of dozens which would spawn Marvel Studios, and the box-office continues to milk its superhero films for all their worth. Still, maintaining such an elaborate cinematic vision is in no way easy for executives and directors.

But, according to the director of Guardians of the Galaxy, continuity is something he has never had to deal with.

In a recent Twitter spree, James Gunn took to answering fans’ questions about Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2. It was there that the director commented on the film’s continuity within the MCU - and it is apparently nonexistent.

“I’m so out in space unconnected at this point, outside of Thanos in Vol 1,” he wrote. “I’ve never had to deal with even a single moment of continuity.”

Of course, there are some threads of continuity scattered about theGuardians films. While they may not make reference to Earthly heroes like Iron Man and Captain America, the Guardians do have to contend with intergalactic affairs like Thanos. The first film heavily focused on the villain as he came in conflict with Ronan, and it ended with the Mad Titan preparing to gather all of the universe’s Infinity Stones.

When Avengers: Infinity War rolls around, it looks like Gunn’s projects will finally have their continuity align with the overall MCU much like how Doctor Strange will. The latter, whose film was directed by Scott Derrickson, introduced fans to the idea of the Marvel Cinematic Multiverse - and the sorcerer supreme will no doubt be part of the Avengers fight against Thanos.
DC'S FOUR-NIGHT INVASION! CROSSOVER BOOSTS THE CW TO ITS BEST RATINGS WEEK IN 6 YEARS

Invasion Crossover Header

Last week, the Invasion! crossover special on The CW wreaked havoc in the Arrowverse as heroes like Supergirl, Green Arrow, and the Flash contended with an alien race. The same cannot be said for the network’s ratings though. The four-night crossover gifted The CW with a rather extraordinary gift; The CW had its best ratings week in six years with more than 2.3 million viewers, a number comparable to when Smallvillewas on air.

On Monday, the event kicked off when Supergirl suited up. The first crossover episode was the most-watched Monday night episode in almost seven years. 2.36 million viewers tuned into the thrilling episode which is also the network’s highest-rated Monday night of the past five years. It also looks like plenty of guys made sure to watch the superhero special as Monday marked a record rating for The CW with male viewers. The Supergirl episode scored a rating of 0.8/3.

On Tuesday, the numbers kept flooding in when The Flash made a comeback. “Invasion!” drew in a rating of 1.5 and over 4 million viewers which translates to a 39% increase in viewership from last season’s high of 3.17 million. Arrow continued the trend on Wednesday night. The hit drama had a rating of 1.3 with more than 3.5 million viewers.

To end the Invasion! special, DC’s Legends of Tomorrow treated fans to an explosive episode. The show raked in 3.33 million total viewers last night, an all-time high for the series. It also scored a rating of 1.1 which puts the episode just shy of Legends of Tomorrow’s highest demo rating. The series premiered with a 1.2 rating when its pilot debuted.

When DC’s Legends of Tomorrow returns from its midseason hiatus, the series will be going way in time to tackle an actual Arthurian legend. That is, King Arthur himself. Earlier this month, the title for Season 2’s twelfth episode was confirmed as “Camelot 3000,” harkening back to an old-school DC Comic from the 1980s. Now, one of the first images from the set has been released, and it shows a rather bloody battle getting underway.

DID SIMON PEGG JUST HINT HE'S WORKING ON THE STAR TREK 4 SCRIPT?

simon-pegg-star-trek-beyond

Earlier this year, Trekkies saw JJ. Abrams’ Star Trek reboot return to theaters when its third film debuted. Star Trek Beyond rushed into theaters with critical backing, but its box-office failed to live up to Paramount’s expectations. The sci-fi thriller lagged with its earnings, but Abrams insisted a fourth Star Trek film would be on its way. The studio did confirm the director was spot-on, but there’s been little talk of the film since.

Well, until now. Over on Twitter, fans are convinced that Simon Pegg is teasing them about his involvement with the project - and their evidence is pretty convincing.

Taking to social media, Pegg posted a photo of himself sitting behind his laptop while writer Doug Jung sits by his side. To their left, fans can also see the mascot for Abrams’ production studio Bad Robot, a company which works on the Star Trek franchise. As for the two writers, they worked together on the Star Trek Beyond script, so fans believe this new picture hints they are already working on a script for Star Trek 4.

“Today…” is what Pegg captioned the photo. The cryptic message has left fans wondering if his post is an unofficial nod to Star Trek 4’s pre-production. If it is, then fans appear to be excited about the prospect; Many applauded Pegg and his comedic quips from Star Trek Beyond, so his involvement with scripting the fourth movie would be a definite bonus.

However, the duo do conflict with previous reports from Paramount. Previously, the studio said J.D. Payne and Patrick McKay would handle the script for Star Trek 4. If Pegg and Jung return, then it would clash with Paramount’s report.

'EMILY THE STRANGE' ANIMATED MOVIE IN THE WORKS AT AMAZON STUDIOS

Dark Horse Entertainment is in negotiations to produce the feature.

Pop culture figure Emily the Strange is getting a new shot at a movie career.

The intellectual property, a punky goth girl and her assorted cats created by skateboarder Rob Reger, is in the process of being set up to be adapted as a feature film at Amazon Studios.

Dark Horse Entertainment is negotiating the deal that once set will see the company's Mike Richardson acting as producer. Reger also will be a producer, as will Dark Horse's Keith Goldberg.

The character was created in the early 1990s by Reger, a skateboarder who was designing assorted stickers, T-shirts and skateboards. That one design took on a life of its own, and a multimillion-dollar worldwide business with toeholds in fashion, books and comics, toys, school supplies and accessories took off.

Dark Horse has been publishing Emily comics since 2005 and soon after set up an adaptation at Universal. Chloe Grace Moretz was at one point attached to the project, which had writers such as Melissa Wallack (Dallas Buyer Club) penning the script. When the rights lapsed, Dark Horse began shopping it.

Universal’s take was to have been live-action, but the Amazon Studios version will be in the form of an animated movie that would keep the authenticity and edge of the property. A search for writers is underway.
MARVEL'S 'INHUMANS' SETS 'DEXTER' GRAD AS SHOWRUNNER

Scott Buck, who is currently overseeing Netflix's Marvel show 'Iron Fist,' will do the same with the forthcoming ABC drama.

ABC and Marvel are turning to a familiar face to oversee The Inhumans.

Dexter grad Scott Buck has been tapped to serve as showrunner on ABC's straight-to-series Marvel and Imax drama, The Hollywood Reporter has learned.

The Inhumans, a race of superhumans with diverse and unique powers, were first introduced in Marvel Comics by Stan Lee and Jack Kirby in 1965. Since then, they have become among the most popular characters in the Marvel Universe. ABC's The Inhumans will explore the never-before-told epic adventure of Black Bolt and the royal family.

Buck will serve as showrunner on the drama series, with the first two episodes set to exclusively unspool in Imax theaters over a two-week period starting Labor Day Weekend 2017 before the drama debuts on ABC in September in a groundbreaking, first-of-its-kind collaboration that helps cut through the crowded fall landscape.

The Inhumans deal extends Marvel's relationship with Buck, who is currently serving as showrunner on the comic book powerhouse's Netflix drama Iron Fist. Iron Fist is Marvel and Netflix's fourth series, with the fifth — mini The Defenders — set to feature stars from the former as well as Daredevil, Jessica Jones and Luke Cage.

Picked up straight to series Nov. 14, The Inhumans is ABC's latest Marvel collaboration.

STAR WARS: ALAN TUDYK DESCRIBES UNIQUE CHALLENGES DEVELOPING ROGUE ONE DROID K-2SO

Bringing any character to life is always a unique challenge for an actor. You don't pull only what's on the page, but have to learn the character's life, their backstory, the way they'd respond to even the most outlandish situation, so that their responses come from a place of truth. But taking a character who is being animated in CGI and living alongside humans has to hold additional challenges, and actor Alan Tudyk, who plays the droid K-2SO in Rogue One: A Star Wars Story had to explore that. Luckily, he has a background of not just classical acting training, but also voice acting; he's even motion captured a robot before.

"[With Voice Acting], it's really quick, from the time you get the character to the time that you're voicing it, and then they're animating it, it can be very fast," Tudyk told ComicBook.com during an interview at the Rogue One press junket. "You get pictures and you sort of play around with the voice, some of them are like that. 'What about this? What about this?' Kind of just finding a voice is where it starts, and then you get the scenes and you go line by line, and so you'll do the lines three times in a row until you get the line right. It can be very disconnected from the overall script. A lot of times you don't read the entire script."

That of course contrasts drastically with developing a character on screen in a standard live-action role.

"When you're doing a role that's just like a typical role in a film, the costume sometimes informs a lot. You're wearing, if your character wears rings, somehow you start gesturing differently. The way that they hold their mouth will be a thing, and so as you get into the character, whatever they do that affects your look, that's a part of it, you're going to be onscreen," he explained.
