Two of Marvel’s most anticipated Phase II films might be sharing studio space, but that doesn’t mean they’ll be sharing cast members. Sorry, guys, don’t expect any of the Guardians of the Galaxy to pop up in Avengers 2.
In a quick chat with Bleeding Cool about the extended Marvel shooting schedule, director Joss Whedon noted that both films will be doing some work at Shepperton Studios in England. Once Guardians finishes up, Whedon revealed, Avengers 2 will move in and get rolling.
But don’t think that proximity will translate into some epic team-up between the two. In Whedon's classic, hilarious style:
“We’re following Guardians at Shepperton [with Avengers 2] but we won’t be swapping cast members. Every movie is its own thing and has to be. Unless I take a lot of peyote and write a very different draft… and I’m not ruling that out.”
Considering the fact that Guardians looks to be set out in deep space, it could be tough to find a way to organically bring everyone together. So this is probably for the best. But we're curious to find out what might’ve been included in that peyote-fueled rewrite.
