Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 director and writer James Gunn is probably one of the more open directors in Hollywood. He’s very good at replying to fan questions, within reason, and has made sure that we know that anything he posts on social media are his words. Now that Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 is done filming a fan asked Gunn about whether or not there would be equal representation of his male and female characters in merchandise.

The toy and merchandise debate within nerd culture is a contentious one but it looks like Gunn is aware of the worries and is willing to address them directly. Guardians of the Galaxy was a huge hit for Marvel so it’s safe to assume that they would likely listen to anything Gunn has to say.

Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 is directed by James Gunn and comes out May 5, 2017
