On Facebook, "Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2" director James Gunn fielded a few questions about the upcoming sequel and how it connects to the larger Marvel Cinematic Universe. As it turns out, the second "Guardians" film won't have much to do with "Avengers: Infinity War."
Asked if there would be any Infinity Stones in the film, he wrote, "There will be no Infinity Stones in Vol. 2."
"There will be infinity nothing. It's a story about the GuarDian's, and isn't meant to lead to anything else," he added when another fan inquired about the Infinity Gauntlet.
"I decide everything that happens in 'GotG,'" he said. "Other than that it's in the hands of others."
Back in February, Gunn made a few similar comments about the film, revealing, "Thanos will not appear in 'Vol. 2.' No. As I've said before, Thanos isn't in this movie. I think he's gonna have a little bit to do and say when it comes to a certain wars and infinity. We've got other fish to fry in 'Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2'... We're not really so much about the Infinity Stones in 'Guardians 2.' Is that a spoiler? It's not really a thing."
"I'm dealing with this one story," he shared at the time. "It's not like I have to change something now for something in the future. It's more like whatever happens in the future will have to be changed by what's created now."
Gunn also addressed whether or not he's return for a third film during his February Q&A, saying, "Do I have plans for a potential 'Vol. 3?' Yeah, if I did it -- but I'm not sure if I will."
