Guardians of the Galaxy Confirmed For Infinity War
One of the many things that the MCU can pride itself in is its interconnectivity. The studio has done a truly bang up job with keeping the continuity of their films in check, all the while retaining a heavy slate of solo films and team ups, each commonly featuring a number of cameos or supporting characters from other Marvel films. However, there are a few different characters in the MCU that haven't been as fortunate with the amount of movies they've been able to appear in thus far, which is a shame, considering some of those characters belong to a film that's arguably the best to come from the MCU: the Guardians of the Galaxy.  

Now that's all about to change, however, as it was recently teased by the writers of Infinity War, Stephen McFeely and Christopher Markus, that the Guardians will play a currently undisclosed role in the film.  



For the video averse, here's what Markus and McFeely had to say when asked about if they were interested in the possibility of a Guardians crossover in Infinity War:

Let me put it this way. You know who owns that gauntlet, right. And you know who's in another movie and his kids are in that movie…you do the math.

Though the screenwriting duo didn't mention anything about whether or not the Guardians would be in part one or part two, it's still extremely exciting news to hear that some of the most beloved and intriguing cosmic characters that the MCU has to offer will be coming together with the Avengers in some capacity over the next few years. That being said, there's still no confirmation on whether the whole team will make it in the movie or whether or not any of the supporting characters, like the villainous Nebula, will play a role in the film as well. All that fans really know is that the Guardians will be featured in some uncertain capacity.  

It'll be interesting to see how the creative team behind Infinity War is able to pull off something of this scale and magnitude. Captain America: Civil War was a fantastic film, but it was certainly pushed to the limit with the amount of characters it featured - any more, and it would have almost definitely felt terribly overstuffed. While most of the characters in Inifinity War will have been established in prior films (much like the characters were in Civil War), that's still a lot of characters to involve, and it may very well prove to be difficult to give each of them the screen time they deserve and to justify each of their involvement in the struggle.

That being said, the MCU has given fans a lot of reasons to have faith in the studio's abilities with their recent successes. Likewise, Infinity War is the moment that the MCU has been working toward almost since it's inception, so they've had more than enough time to plan and iron out the details and mechanics of how this massive machine they've constructed is going to work. Here's to hoping it turns out to be everything Marvel fans have been waiting for.
