James Gunn Hints at Guardians of the Galaxy 3 Release Date

In a lengthy, heartfelt Facebook message to fans, James Gunn has hinted on when we can expect the Guardians of the Galaxy 3 release date to be. You can read his full, awesome message below, but he ends it with: “I love you all, and I’ll continue being here with you over the next three years as we create Vol. 3.” This sounds like we are looking at a 2020 release for the Guardians of the Galaxy 3 release, which would fall in line with the almost three-year period between Guardians of the Galaxy (August 1, 2014) and Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 (May 5, 2017).

Marvel Studios has scheduled three untitled movies for that year, including one on May 1, 2020, one on August 7, 2020, and another one November 6, 2020. Which of these do you think the Guardians of the Galaxy 3 release might grab? Let us know in the comments.

Set to the backdrop of Awesome Mixtape #2, the Guardians of the Galaxy sequel continues the team’s adventures as they traverse the outer reaches of the cosmos. The Guardians must fight to keep their newfound family together as they unravel the mysteries of Peter Quill’s true parentage. Old foes become new allies and fan-favorite characters from the classic comics will come to our heroes’ aid as the Marvel cinematic universe continues to expand.
