James Gunn Wraps Guardians of the Galaxy Movie


And that's a wrap, folks! James Gunn has finished filming the Guardians of the Galaxy movie!

James Gunn spent the last few months in London filming the Marvel Cosmic movie set to hit the spaceways August 1, 2014.

Featuring an all-star cast, the Guardians of the Galaxy will go toe-to-toe with the likes of Thanos and his henchmen, Ronan and Nebula.

As of yet, the actor playing Thanos has yet to be announced, but Lee Pace will be playing Ronan and fan-favorite Karen Gillan plays Nebula.

Director James Gunn offered some parting words via his Facebook:

And that is an Official Wrap on Guardians of the Galaxy. My heartfelt gratitude goes out to all of you involved with this film. Everyone down the line has been one hundred percent supportive of me and the Marvel team at every turn, and although I can be harsh or hurried at times, it has not gone unnoticed or unappreciated. I feel profoundly fortunate to have been surrounded by the people on this film - because of your talent, your insight, your passion, your liveliness, and your friendship. From the cast to the producers to the costumers to the A.D.s to the stand-ins to the P.A.s to the extras to the stunties and on and on, this movie is what it is because of all of you. Thank you thank you thank you a thousand times, from the bottom of my heart. I love you all.

A Guardians of the Galaxy wrap party was also held where James Gunn added:

Tonight is the wrap party but tomorrow will be my last full day in London before heading off to Paris with Michael Rooker. What should I do?! Suggestions appreciated below. People pleading for a #gotg trailer will be blocked and then, possibly, murdered. A bit harsh, I know, but I don't make the rules :)

In addition, members of the cast present Gunn with some gifts. 

Yes this is what my British crew calls me on set & this is my one-of-kind hoodie gift from the ADs#gotg



Oh my gosh I just got the greatest wrap gift ever from Dave Bautista - Heavyweight title belt with my name on it! Not only is he an amazing talent, he's one of the best dudes ever.
