If you’re like us, chances are you’ve read your fair share of movie scripts. It’s a great way to get a more in-depth look at filmmaking, and perhaps the best way to learn about effective and ineffective story structure. And of course, sometimes it’s just good old fun to delve deeper into movie you’ve watched hundred 56 times.

You are watching: Guardians of the galaxy 2 script

If you’re huge Marvel fan, can we have a nice big surprise for you. Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 director James Gunn recently took to Twitter to share the final draft of the script. Here’s what he had to say:

As promised, the Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 script is now online. Read it here for free: https://t.co/xXGha4EhMH

In addition to releasing the script in all its 139-page glory, the director also released some additional insight into his process of writing, along with some other answers to questions he received from fans. Rather than go tweet-by-tweet, answering each individual person, the director opted to make a list of questions that he’d answer, and then answer them one-by-one.

1 I'll answer people's questions here in a thread, because many of them are the same. Some words are CAPITALIZED. This is not random. These are usually props or actions the actors or camera will take.

2 Some lines are different. These are the lines that were actually written without including any of the improvisation by the actors on set. And some lines were cut from the film.

3 I wrote 9 drafts of the screenplay I turned into the studio, along with at least 4 drafts of the treatment. But I wrote dozens of drafts for myself in-between those, trying to make the script the best I could.

4 No, the draft for the first GotG is not available.

5 The script was written in Final Draft. It was heavily outlined – I put more work into the Treatment than I do the script itself.

6 I took a lot of notes on what would happen in Vol. 2 before ever starting Vol. 1. I actually started writing the treatment/story on the day the first film came out (Aug 1 2014) and the script was pretty much finished in October of 2015 a couple months before shooting.

7 The studio suggested no changes to make it more amendable to Avengers 3 or 4. I did, however, give Markus & McFeely and the Russo Brothers the script in October 2015 so they knew where the Guardians ended up while they were writing.

8 Improvisation is only ever encouraged AFTER we have the scene shot as written. Most improv on set is by me or Chris.

9 The extended post credits scene with Adolescent Groot and Quill was cut because it is funnier to read than it was to watch. It just happens that way sometimes, who knows why. I thought it was funny on set.

10 All of the post-credits scenes were included all the way back in the treatment – I didn't discuss therm with Marvel beforehand, but they liked them. EXCEPT the Stakar/Ravagers scene, which I wrote after we had completed primary filming.

— James Gunn (
JamesGunn) November 21, 2017

11 I awoke with a vision of the Stakar Ravagers scene in my head and couldn't stop thinking about it for days. We almost didn't include the Adam Warlock scene because he was definitely not in Avengers 3 or 4 and we had no plans for him in general.

— James Gunn (
JamesGunn) November 21, 2017

12 And despite so many people thinking Adam will show up in Vol 3 that is something that we have never confirmed. Who knows how long it will take him to bake in that cocoon. That said, I love Adam. But the time must be right.

— James Gunn (

13 There are MANY things I do in the script that I would probably not do if I wasn't directing. I write a fair amount of camera moves & I write in the songs.

— James Gunn (
JamesGunn) November 21, 2017

14 The songs are all chosen in the treatment phase – sometimes before I write the scene and sometimes after.
