Just over a week ago brought word that Guardians of the Galaxy director James Gunn had in mind to take on a new Starsky & Hutch for TV, though he quickly downplayed the rumor. Now, Amazon has officially snagged Gunn’s update of the classic cop duo.
TV reboots are starting to run amok once more, but it’s another matter when Marvel director James Gunn is guarding one. The Guardians of the Galaxy favorite may take a crack at reviving classic cop duo Starsky & Hutch, bringing a few other big Gunns with him.
As previously teased by director James Gunn, Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 will not only be the final chapter featuring the intergalactic crew of misfits we know and love, it will also pave the way for the next several years of the MCU — something Gunn reiterated during a recent Q&A, where he dropped a couple of juicy new details about the third Guardians movie, including what we can expect from the next Awesome Mix.
Somewhere out there in the deepest darkest recesses of the galaxy, there is a Guardians of the Galaxy Easter egg so hidden and obscure that supposedly no one has found it. Since the first Guardians opened in 2014, James Gunn has touted the existence of this hidden Easter egg on social media, and even offered up a $100,000 bounty to anyone who could prove it didn’t exist (which is impossible, at least without the Infinity Stones to warp reality and change the concept of non-existence). So far, at least according to Gunn, no one has found this thing. The second Guardians arrived earlier this month, bringing renewed focus on the hidden egg, and still no one has located it.
Young folks are probably best acquainted with David Hasselhoff in the ironic sense, like some kitschy relic unearthed in their parents’ attic during a recon mission to find the most absurd pop culture fossil for their growing collection of dank memes. But us olds know The Hoff as a beloved ’80s icon, star of Baywatch and Knight Rider, and a weird German pop music icon — so it’s not entirely surprising that James Gunn solicited Hasselhoff to help record a song for Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2. And it is special.
