James Gunn Confirms “Guardians of the Galaxy 3” Will Happen

With more than a month to go before its premiere, Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 director has some details on the faith of the Marvel franchise in the future when he talked with Complex about his latest writing film project The Belko Experiment.

Here’s what he has to say:

There will be a Guardians 3, that’s for sure. We’re trying 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; is it the Guardians or something else? I’m just going to figure it out over the next couple of weeks.

It’s been disclosed that the Guardians of the Galaxy team will be included in Avengers: Infinity War which we can safely assume that will also include the fourth still untitled Avengers film. But the problem with his statement is his uncertainty in returning to the beloved space epic.

With the glowing reception of the first Guardians of the Galaxy and a perfect reaction to the test screenings of Vol. 2, Gunn’s involvement with the Marvel property isn’t a problem for anyone.

Here’s to hoping that when Guardians of the Galaxy returns for its third installment, “James Gunn” will still be there as the writer and director.


“Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2” arrives in Philippine cinemas April 26, 2017 from Walt Disney Studios, locally distributed by Columbia Pictures.
