Guardians of the Galaxy is a franchise that has won over fans worldwide with its blend of sci-fi, action, and humor. The first two movies were directed by James Gunn, who has become synonymous with the franchise. The third installment is currently in development, and fans are eagerly anticipating what’s to come. In this article, we’ll take a look at everything we know so far about Guardians of the Galaxy 3.
The Release Date
The release date for Guardians of the Galaxy 3 has been a bit of a mystery. Initially, the movie was set to be released in 2020. However, after James Gunn was fired by Disney in 2018, the future of the franchise was uncertain. After several months of uncertainty, Disney rehired Gunn to direct the movie, and the release date was pushed back to 2023. The current release date for Guardians of the Galaxy 3 is May 5, 2023.
Details about the plot of Guardians of the Galaxy 3 are being kept under wraps, as is typical for most Marvel movies. However, there have been some hints about what fans can expect. In an interview with Collider, James Gunn revealed that the movie would conclude the story arc that began in the first movie. He also teased that the movie would have a more emotional tone than the previous two films.
One significant question on fans’ minds is how the movie will address the absence of two major characters: Gamora and Rocket. Gamora was killed by Thanos in Avengers: Infinity War but was later brought back to life in Avengers: Endgame. However, the Gamora that returned was from an earlier time period, and it’s unclear what happened to her after the events of Endgame. Rocket, on the other hand, was last seen with the Guardians at the end of Endgame, but it’s unclear if he’ll be returning for the third movie.
The core cast of the Guardians of the Galaxy franchise is expected to return for the third movie. This includes Chris Pratt as Peter Quill/Star-Lord, Zoe Saldana as Gamora, Dave Bautista as Drax the Destroyer, Bradley Cooper as the voice of Rocket, and Vin Diesel as the voice of Groot. It’s also been confirmed that Pom Klementieff will be returning as Mantis.
One notable absence from the cast is Karen Gillan, who played Nebula in the previous two movies. Gillan has confirmed that she won’t be appearing in Guardians of the Galaxy 3, although she’ll be returning as Nebula in other Marvel projects.
There have also been rumors that Adam Warlock, a character teased in the post-credits scene of Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2, will make an appearance in the third movie. However, this hasn’t been confirmed by Marvel.
As mentioned earlier, James Gunn is returning to direct Guardians of the Galaxy 3. Gunn was fired by Disney in 2018 after some controversial tweets from his past resurfaced. However, after a public outcry and support from the Guardians cast, Gunn was rehired in 2019.
Gunn has been open about his love for the Guardians franchise and his plans for the third movie. In an interview with Collider, he described the movie as “the culmination of everything that’s happened in the Guardians of the Galaxy universe up to this point.”
Guardians of the Galaxy 3 is one of the most highly anticipated Marvel movies in recent years. With a release date of May 5, 2023, fans
