Due to this movie being a crossover event unlike any ever seen before, it was an “all hands on deck” endeavor for Marvel Studios and its top names. Specifically, working the Guardians of the Galaxy into the fold was part of the plot that took years of build-up, which led Marvel Studios to bring in director James Gunn to make sure their arrival landed smoothly.
In a recent Twitter interaction, Guardians of the Galaxy director James Gunn was asked if Gamora’s death in Avengers: Infinity War was completely within his control.
While Gunn reveals that the scene “wasn’t completely out of (his) control,” he does say that it’s “probably” his favorite scene of the movie.
In that light, Gunn spoke on his experience with the MCU’s Phase 3 climax, giving his favorite scene in the process.
