James Gunn is one of the greats when it comes to making films on superheroes and the imaginative extraterrestrial. The filmmaker is known for his clear vision and headstrong approach to all aspects of his work. In his last movie with Marvel, Gunn reveals he was adamant on breaking a long withstanding tradition in the media franchise.

The last installment of the extraterrestrial adventures portrayed in the Guardians of the Galaxy franchise brought out this change. Replying to a fan on social media, Gunn revealed how it came to be.

Marvel has the tradition to keep its movies notoriously PG-13. Upon looking closely, there could be some suggestive sentences here and there but certainly nothing of the explicit sort. While bidding Adieu to Marvel, James Gunn broke this tradition.

Guardians of the Galaxy 3 hit theatres in May earlier this year. It was a hit with fans, naturally having a great box-office reception. The movie is now available for streaming on Disney+. It stands out in the history of Marvel, as James Gunn’s last project prior to taking the chair as CEO at DC and becoming the first movie to have the word “f*ck” in it.

This occurs halfway through the movie. In their mission to save Rocket, the Star Lord, played by Chris Pratt, and Nebula, played by Karen Gillian, enter a human car in Counter-Earth. Nebula doesn’t know how to open a car door, causing the Star Lord to swear.

Fans Inquisitive of Marvel’s First F*ck

To casual moviegoers, the scene was a hilarious moment. But long-term Marvel fans didn’t mistake the profanity for a mere comedic tool. They were quick to notice that Marvel has now broken its no-swearing policy.

One such fan who was inquisitive about this trivial turning point in Marvel asked Gunn on the Threads app, wondering why Samuel L. Jackson didn’t get to do the honors of Marvel’s first profanity. And how Gunn convinced the powers that be at Marvel Studios to have this scene in the final cut.

Gunn answered saying it is something he would have fought hard for but he didn’t have to because Marvel was “cool about it”. He said:

“Marvel didn’t give anyone the first fuck. I took it. If they had pushed back I would have fought it tooth and nail but they were cool and did not.”

The scene, having spoiled in the trailer itself added to the anticipation for the movie. It landed perfectly and gave everyone a good laugh. James Gunn is now concentrating on his new job as DC CEO. But the small yet mighty change he brought in Marvel movies in his wake, has opened the doors for more funny swearing in future MCU projects.
