Whedon, a friend of Gunn's, recently spoke with MTV News at the Toronto International Film Festival (where he was busy promoting "Much Ado about Nothing," his modernized take on Shakespeare's classic play) about how Marvel's "Guardians of the Galaxy" adaptation is coming together, and what the film's director brings to the equation.

It's looking more and more likely that Joseph Gordon-Levitt's days of stalking around Gotham City in a cape and cowl have ended before they ever really started. By the end of "The Dark Knight Rises," Gordon-Levitt's optimistic beat cop John Blake — real name Robin, as it turns out — discovered Bruce Wayne's abandoned Batcave, leaving him the heir apparent to Batman's legacy in Gotham.
Gordon-Levitt hasn't been shy about his beliefs that the ending of "Rises" wasn't meant to be a "to be continued," but a decisive conclusion to the "Dark Knight" trilogy and its themes. Given that Christopher Nolan has also said that he won't be involved in future Batman films, it's a safe bet that further appearances of JGL in Gotham aren't in the cards, either.
But how about that "Justice League" movie that Warner Bros. is currently assembling? It's unclear at the moment how WB plans to connect their superhero team-up (rumored to hit theaters in 2015, the same year as Marvel and Joss Whedon's "Avengers" sequel) to the "Dark Knight" trilogy, if at all. But for the sake of argument, let's say Gordon-Levitt was approached to be a part of "Justice League" — would he even be interested in signing on?
The next installment of "The Hunger Games," titled "Catching Fire," promises all kinds of changes for the world of Panem. Katniss Everdeen isn't just a Hunger Games survivor, for one; she's a full-blown celebrity now. Civil unrest is catching throughout the 12 districts, too, causing all sorts of problems for Katniss as well as the cruel President Snow.
And here's something else that's new: when "Catching Fire" hits theaters, it'll have a brand new fan in the form of A-List actor Bradley Cooper.
It seems the "Hangover" actor, currently at the Toronto International Film Festival promoting his and co-star Jennifer Lawrence's new film, "The Silver Linings Playbook," is the latest person to catch fire and become a "Hunger Games" fan. "I just saw it," Cooper told a surprised Lawrence when MTV News spoke with the pair at TIFF. "I didn't even tell you? I didn't text you?"
He goes on to further prove his fandom... but you'll have to head to MTV.com to read it.
