Despite numerous planets being destroyed in Star Wars: The Force Awakens, James Gunn’s Guardians of the Galaxy topped a recent list of the deadliest films of the decade

The study claimed the Marvel film saw 83,761 people die on-screen, 80,000 of which were unnamed Nova Corp pilots in the film’s climatic battle. 

Gunn has since shared his thoughts on the 'study', Tweeting: “So I guess Guardians of the Galaxy is now the deadliest film in movie history. By, like, a lot. Um, yay?”

Most revealing of all was Gunn’s reply to one fan asking whether the sequel will be as deadly, to which the director replied simply “No”.

Other films included on the list include Dracula Untold, The Sum of All Fears, as well was two Lord of the Rings films (Two Towers and Return of the King). 

Meanwhile, Gunn is currently working on Guardians of the Galaxy Vol 2 which will reunite Chris Pratt with Zoe Saldana, Vin Diesel, Dave Bautista and Bradley Cooper. The film will be released 28 April 2017.
