In fact, Disney almost changed its mind, but in the short period of time in which Gunn was off Guardians of the Galaxy 3. he signed on to write and direct the other series The Suicide Squad for Warner Bros. So now he is committed to making the movie for DC first.
However, now Gunn has completed The Suicide Squad and is currently filming an HBO Max Spin-off show focusing on John Cena’s character from the particular film called peacemaker. Once he completes the show, he will move full-time into prepping for Guardians of the Galaxy 3. He previously said would complete the trilogy of sorts that he was planning for the beloved Guardians characters.
Now things might have changed, Gunn’s past comments made it sound like Guardians of the Galaxy 3 will be a sendoff to the specific lineup of the Guardians of the Galaxy. The casting of the final characters has not yet been announced and the story details are also under the wraps. But Guardians of the Galaxy 2 was a pretty ambitious film from a narrative perspective. So, now all the fans are excited to see what Gunn puts together for Vol 3.
The writer and director have also said that the script for Guardians 3 is the same series, one he was planning to shoot back in 2019. While in productions on Guardians 3 Gunn will also direct the Guardians of the Galaxy Holiday special series for Disney+ as well as scenes needed for the upcoming Walt Disney World attraction. So there’s certainly a lot on his to-do list for now.
In addition to this, if our release date is accurate then maybe Comic-con 2022 will be the first place where the Guardians of the Galaxy 3 trailer might be debuted. But for now, we can only hope that our wait is not that long.
