James Gunn Reveals If Thanos Killed the Collector

Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 director James Gunn has revealed whether or not Thanos killed The Collector in Avengers: Infinity War.

Did Thanos kill The Collector?

Gunn was asked by a Twitter user if Taneleer Tivan/The Collector survived Thanos’ attack on Knowhere in Avengers: Infinity War, as the recent Marvel Studios’ sequel’s production notes state that the Guardians bought Knowhere off of Tivan.

The filmmaker confirmed that The Collector did indeed survive Thanos’ assault, having lived to sell the inhabited celestial head to the Guardians of the Galaxy to use as their new base of operations.

Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 was once again written and directed by James Gunn. MCU vets Chris Pratt, Zoe Saldaña, Dave Bautista, Sean Gunn, Karen Gillan, Pom Klementieff, Bradley Cooper, and Vin Diesel return to reprise their respective roles as Star-Lord, Gamora, Drax, Kraglin, Nebula, Mantis, Rocket, and Groot. Bodies Bodies Bodies star Maria Bakalova join on as Cosmo the Spacedog.

The sequel also features the introduction of franchise newcomers Will Poulter and Chukwudi Iwuji, who portray the roles of Adam Warlock and the High Evolutionary.

Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 is now in theaters.
