Guardians Of The Galaxy writer and director James Gunn probably had no idea that his 'underdog' Marvel movie will end up becoming one of the biggest blockbusters of 2014. Naturally, the director is quite excited about the film's sequel and "future movies."

During an interview with Entertainment Weekly, Gunn revealed which characters from Guardians Of The Galaxy he would most like to explore in upcoming instalments:

"Yondu and Kraglin, the Ravagers. And I love Nebula. I think that she is underutilized in the film. I want to see more of her," he said. "The Collector. He'll reappear. I don't know if he's gonna been the next one. I do think his story is really compelling, and I think he's one of those very interesting shades of gray characters."

The director also told MTV that Guardians 2 will "move towards future cosmic movies" and not be made to set up Avengers 3.

"I think it's really about the Guardians and what they are doing. We're not subservient to the Avengers. Guardians 2 is not a movie that's made to move toward 'Infinity War.' It's something that's made to move toward future cosmic movies."

While promoting the upcoming DVD and Blu-ray release of Guardians Of The Galaxy, Gunn also shared his experience on introducing super villain Thanos in the film, with EW: "The most difficult thing was to introduce Thanos in a way where he's cool, but not make our antagonist, Ronan, look like a wuss in the process. That was a real delicate balance."
