Earlier this morning, prior to the release of the awesome new trailer, the filmmakers behind Guardians of the Galaxy hosted a fan Q&A on Facebook. While there were lots of great questions, some key ones stood out that give hints at how the movie ties in with the rest of the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
Here are some of the more interesting questions and answers from the Facebook Q&A:
Do you think the Guardians will be in any of The Avengers sequels like Age of Ultron or Avengers 3?
James Gunn Well… not Avengers 2. We’ll have to see. I’m giving “We’ll have to see” as an answer to a lot of things. BUT Vin Diesel is here and he’s about to answer questions. Ask them up! He’s the best Groot in the entire world.
Notice how he specifically said “not Avengers 2”? That’s because Guardians of the Galaxy likely sets up things for Avengers 3 where the Guardians will have to team up with the Earth heroes to fight Thanos.
To Kevin Feige: In the Guardians of the Galaxy’s film will have some easter egg from the Avengers 2 or 3 films?
Guardians of the Galaxy (Kevin Feige): Yes.
Feige confirms an Avengers Easter Egg. This is likely the Infinity Gems that will lead into the big conflict of Avengers 3.
James Gunn: Will the movie be conected with any episode of Agents Of S.H.I.E.L.D?
James Gunn Maybe.
How the show will connect to Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. may already be known. The Kree Coulson found this season may tie into the movie.
