James Gunn already has an idea where he wants to take those ‘Guardians of the Galaxy’ in a sequel. “I know a lot of where I want to go. I have a lot of ideas for stories and characters that are going to appear, and there are documents written up, that some people have, about Peter Quill’s father and his relationship, a lot of stuff about Yondu and a lot of stuff about Drax that nobody knows….There are a lot of things that are part of the overall schematic that already exist, not to mention a lot of stuff about all of the cultures. There’s a lot of stuff about Xandarian and Kree culture that I’ve written down or I have in my head, as well as Krylorians and Ravagers.”
In a separate interview, Gunn and star Chris Pratt were asked about an inevitable “Guardians”/”Avengers” crossover movie.

We’ve got location work first, and then the bulk of the filming will be in Leavesden [Studios], north of London.
