When asked if he had a specific role in mind for the actor, James mentioned that he needed time to figure it out.

Additionally, during the interview, James professed his admiration for Bollywood films and shared that the musical component in Guardians of the Galaxy was influenced by them. He praised the artistry and entertainment value of Bollywood cinema, emphasizing that there are no strict guidelines on what a film should be, which aligns with the diverse nature of the Guardians movies. He believes that Indian, Japanese, Korean, and Chinese cinema are integral parts of their identity.

In addition to that, he mentioned that a significant portion of American movies focus solely on American history or are produced in collaboration with European counterparts. For him, it is crucial to introduce a global perspective to audiences through films that deviate from the conventional storytelling techniques commonly seen in the United States. He divulged that the infusion of musical elements in his work draws inspiration from the vibrant and captivating nature of Bollywood cinema.
