Check Out Some Awesome New BTS GOTG Vol. 2 Images As James Gunn Explains Why Thanos Is Not In The Movie

Along with yesterday's set reports, a batch of new Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 behind-the-scenes snaps were released which you can check out here. Plus, director James Gunn discusses Thanos' absence.

We've already heard from Kevin Feige regarding Thanos' next appearance in the MCU, and now Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 director James Gunn weighs in on why the Mad Titan won't show up in his sequel despite making his debut (well, if you don't count that brief Avengers post-credits scene) in the first film.

During an interview with Collider, Gunn explains that he wanted this story to focus on the relationship between Nebula and Gamora, without the looming presence of their adoptive father.


It’s about two sisters. It’s not about the sisters and their father. It’s about two sisters and what were the sisters’ problems with each other? And, you know, some of those things were caused by being raised by the ultimate abusive father. But it really isn’t about Thanos, and frankly, I just wasn’t inspired to put him in the movie. You know, I kind of go with my gut on these things and it just wasn’t what I wanted to do. It wasn’t the most fun part of the movie last time for me and I just didn’t really wanna do it this time.

And again, the relationship with Thanos has nothing to do with it. It’s not about their relationship with Thanos. It’s about their relationship to each other, and what is that? And that was interesting to me, and I thought that was important to our story, and that was important to our characters. What happened with them in the past—there’s a lot of stuff that happened with them in the past that affects our characters presently.”

From the sounds of things, Gamora and Nebula rekindling some kind of sisterly bond (if they ever really had one in the first place) will be a pretty big part of the plot, so Thanos will almost certainly get a mention or two even if he doesn't actually appear onscreen.
