Gunn also addressed the report on a Facebook post. "Wow. So according to this article, 'Guardians of the Galaxy' is the 'deadliest film of all time' with over 83k deaths on screen," he said. "For the record, the second 'deadliest film of all time' is 'Dracula Untold' at 5.6k - ['The Lord of the Rings: The Return of The King'] is number four with 2.7k deaths on screen."

"That's right - we have 78k more deaths than our closest rival," he jokingly added. "Um, hooray?"
