Will James Gunn Return for Guardians of the Galaxy 3?
Production continues on Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 in Atlanta, Georgia, and during some downtime on the set today, director James Gunn held a live Q&A with fans on his Facebook page. Topics ranged from the contents of his trailer, to why there wasn’t actually a trailer for the film, to whether Howard the Duck would return (prompting a non-verbal shrug from Gunn) and if Michael Rooker could take Kurt Russell in a fight.
More interesting, however, was the prospect brought up by Gunn about what he might do after Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2, revealing Marvel has already spoken with him about continuing with them afterward.
“Right now I really am just concerned with doing Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2. I’m not sure what I’m going to do after this… Marvel has talked to me about continuing on. I’m not sure if that’s what I want to do or if that’s not what I want to do. I really just want to make Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 the greatest possible movie that I can, and something that’s as honest and sincere and true as it can possibly be.”
Gunn also went on to reveal that production on the film, despite having only started twenty days ago, is set to conclude this June. Marvel’s Phase Three is currently locked down through 2019, though three release dates in 2020 (May 1, July 10, and November 6) remain a mystery. Could one of them be Guardians of the Galaxy 3 or does Marvel have a different property in mind for Gunn? Sound off with your thougths below!
