James Gunn Confirms Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 Will Happen

Shocking few, director James Gunn has confirmed in a new interview that Marvel Studios will (at an undisclosed point) make a Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3.

“There will be a Guardians 3, that’s for sure,” Gunn tells Complex, echoing comments from last year. “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.

In addition, Gunn spoke about the addition of the Guardians to the upcoming Avengers: Infinity War, saying:

“You know listen, I don’t think we should overstate things that it is an Avengers movie, but the Guardians are a part of the cosmic universe, they’re a part of Thanos’ stories, so, they are in there, and they have, not the biggest, but, an integral part to that.”

Gunn will bring the Guardians back to the big screen with Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 on May 5. The film sees the return of Chris Pratt as Star-Lord, Zoe Saldana as Gamora, Dave Bautista as Drax, Vin Diese as the voice of Groot, Bradley Cooper as the voice of Rocket, Michael Rooker as Yondu, Karen Gillan as Nebula, and Sean Gunn as Kraglin. New cast members include Pom Klementieff as Mantis, Elizabeth Debicki as Ayesha, Chris Sullivan as Taserface, and Kurt Russell as Ego, the Living Planet.
