Guardians of the Galaxy 3 will happen. However, Director James Gunn is unsure if he wants to continue directing the movie. Moreover, Gunn gives Marvel fanatics an insight on what Peter Quill and his group’s involvement will be in Marvel’s The Avengers: Infinity War movie.
Guardians Of The Galaxy 3 To Have A New Director?
“There will be a Guardians 3, that’s for sure,” says Director James Gunn when asked about the superhero film’s future. However, the director disclosed that he is uncertain if he wants to direct Guardians 3.
CBR.com reported that Gunn is still “trying to figure out what he really wants.” Moreover, the director reasoned that he is at a point in his life where he questions what does he want to do in three years. “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,” said Gunn.
The publication reports that the director asking for a couple of weeks is different from what he told a fan in August last year. According to the source, Gunn replied with “There are no real plans, and I haven’t made up my mind yet what I’m doing next.”

Guardians Characters: An Integral Part Of Avengers Movie
While Gunn is uncertain about his involvement with Guardians 3, he shared a tidbit about the superheroes’ participation in the upcoming Avengers movie. According to IGN, Peter Quill (Chris Pratt) and company will appear in The Avengers: Infinity War film next year.
Gunn made it clear that the Guardians will “play more than just a teeny part” in the film. “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 [Infinity War antagonist] Thanos’ stories, so, they are in there, and they have, not the biggest, but, an integral part to that,” said the Guardians of the Galaxy director.
Apart from being part of the Marvel movie, the James Gunn movie will have a game series and an upcoming Disneyland attraction. Disney released the first Guardians movie in 2014. The film became a commercial success, grossing $773.3 million worldwide. Moreover, it became the highest-grossing superhero film of 2014.
The upcoming sequel, Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 will have its theatrical release on May 5, 2017. What are your thoughts about Guardians of the Galaxy 3? Share them with us!
