James Gunn is not just one of the most vocal filmmakers on social media, but also one of the most interactive. The director behind Slither, Super, and perhaps more famously Guardians of the Galaxy keeps in contact with fans by answering random questions on Twitter or Facebook, sometimes offering revealing tidbits in the process. However, a downside to Gunn’s openness is that he is inundated with questions day-in and day-out, many times with the same queries over and over again. So, after this weekend asking folks to chill out about when the Guardians of the Galaxy, Vol. 2 trailer is coming, Gunn went and made one massive Q&A post in which he addresses the questions that he’s most frequently asked.
It’s a fun little back-and-forth with himself that also serves to illuminate some facts about Guardians of the Galaxy, Vol. 2, like why Karen Gillan didn’t have to shave her head this time around, how Vin Diesel is doing Baby Groot’s voice, and what fans can expect on the soundtrack. Gunn even veers into general Marvel territory, addressing whether the Guardians show up in Avengers: Infinity War, how much of the original story for Guardians 2 came from Marvel, and his scoring process with composer Tyler Bates. Hell, Gunn even addresses why there probably won’t be a Super 2 or Slither 2 and finally answers that one burning question: what does Chris Pratt smell like?
So take a look at Gunn’s answers below and please try and refrain from inundating the filmmaker with these questions in the future. Asked and answered. Move along. The guy is clearly happy to be in discourse with his fans, but it’s no doubt grating to have folks bludgeoning you for the same information at all hours of the day. Mix it up a little!
Guardians of the Galaxy, Vol. 2 opens in theaters on May 5, 2017.
