Very Important Man James Gunn Has Seen Thor: Ragnarok Trailer Before You, And He Loves It


In today's unprecedented second edition of Jumping the Gunn, the column in which we closely monitor the social media feed of James Gunn and turn even the most innocuous of comments into clickbait articles just like the rest of the entertainment media does without a hint of irony, we look at James Gunn's thoughts on superhero movie trailers.

Guardians of the Galaxy 2 director Gunn is an extremely important man whose stature dictates special privileges not afforded to ordinary schlubs like us. During an impromptu Q&A session on Twitter yesterday, Gunn was asked if he'd seen the Thor: Ragnarok trailer yet, and responded in the affirmative:

High praise from Gunn again. Does he ever have anything bad to say?

Well… you be the judge.
