Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 hasn’t even hit theatres yet , and James Gunn has already confirmed that he will be writing and directing Volume 3. In a Facebook post, Gunn said
“In the end, my love for Rocket, Groot, Gamora, Star-Lord, Yondu, Mantis, Drax, and Nebula – and some of the other forthcoming heroes – goes deeper than you guys can possibly imagine, and I feel they have more adventures to go on and things to learn about themselves and the wonderful and sometimes terrifying universe we all inhabit. And, like in both Vol. 1 and Vol. 2, we will work on creating the story that goes beyond what you expect.”
The passion and dedication Gunn shows towards this project is why I believe the first movie did so well, and I’m excited to see how well Gunn lives up to the high expectations set forth by fans.
We also got a sneak peek at when the next Guardians installment will fit into the Marvel timeline:
“Much of what’s happened in the MCU for the past ten or so years has been leading, in a big way, to the Avengers’ Infinity War. Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 will happen after all that. It will conclude the story of this iteration of the Guardians of the Galaxy, and help catapult both old and new Marvel characters into the next ten years and beyond. I will be working side-by-side with Kevin Feige and the gang to help design where these stories go, and make sure the future of the Marvel Cosmic Universe is as special and authentic and magical as what we have created so far.”
More Marvel storylines? The next ten years? Yes please!
