Good News Everyone! We’re Getting a Guardians of the Galaxy Trilogy from James Gunn
Today, Guardians of the Galaxy director/writer James Gunn took to social media to announce he will be back to finish the trilogy. So far, Gunn has written and directed both the 2014 launch of the franchise and the upcoming Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 that releases May 5th.
Here’s what Gunn had to say:
“So, yes, I’m returning to write and direct Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3.
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.”
Allow Me to Provide You With the Proper Reaction:
Gunn’s confirmation that he will complete the trilogy is great news. The first film was amazing and if test audience reactions are any indication, the second will be even better. The director also gave us a hint of when to expect the final volume:
“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.”

Marvel’s Avengers: Infinity War hits theaters on May 4, 2018. There is also a second Avengers film that releases in 2019 that might wrap up the Infinity War storyline, which means we should expect Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 sometime in or after 2020.
Prepare those tape decks, Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 hits theaters next month, May 5, 2017.
