James Gunn Confirms ‘GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY VOL. 3’ Will Happen
Writer-director James Gunn has confirmed that Marvel Studios is definitely planning a third sequel for Guardians of the Galaxy.
Gunn spoke to Complex about the comments made last year:
“There will be a GUARDIANS 3, that’s for sure. We’re tying to figure it out. I’m trying to figure out what I want to do really, that’s all it is. I got to figure out where I want to be, what I want to spend the next three years of my life doing. You know, I’m going to make another big movie; it is the Guardians or something else? I’m just going to figure it out over the next couple of weeks.”
In addition, Gunn also spoke about the addition of the Guardians to the upcoming Avengers: Infinity War.
“You know listen, I don’t think we should overstate things that it is an Avengers movie, but the Guardians are a part of the cosmic universe, they’re a part of Thanos’ stories, so, they are in there, and they have, not the biggest, but, an integral part to that.”
Starring Chris Pratt, Zoe Saldana, Dave Bautista, Vin Diesel, Bradley Cooper, Michael Rooker, Karen Gillan, and Sean Gunn reprising their roles. They’re joined by new cast members Pom Klementieff as Matis, Elizabeth Debicki, Chris Sullivan, and Kurt Russell as Ego, the Living Planet.
Set to the backdrop of Awesome Mixtape #2, Marvel’s GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY VOL. 2 continues the team’s adventures as they traverse the outer reaches of the cosmos. The Guardians must fight to keep their newfound family together as they unravel the mysteries of Peter Quill’s true parentage. Old foes become new allies and fan-favorite characters from the classic comics will come to our heroes’ aid as the Marvel Cinematic Universe continues to expand.
Kevin Feige, Louis D’Esposito, Victoria Alonso, Jonathan Schwartz, Nik Korda and Stan Lee executive produce.
Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 hits theaters on May 5.
