Karen Gillan has revealed that she and Pom Klementieff cried while reading James Gunn’s emotional script for Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3
Now what Black widow has been released and started the list of Phase 4 movies, there was a time when it was expected to be the second movie to come out. Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 was almost confirmed as the launch point for Phase 4 before Disney momentarily fired James Gunn from the film. His voice shaping the Guardians of the Galaxy made it nearly impossible to imagine someone else directing the third film, but thankfully Disney reversed this decision and brought him back.
With Gunn back in Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3, the film was pushed back on the slated release list for the Marvel Cinematic Universe, and now that it officially has a May 2023 release date and will begin filming later this year once Gunn finishes his work on The Suicide Squad and his HBO Max series Peacemaker. However, the anticipation for Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 is high, and Gunn has joked that this will be the last film with the original Guardians team, with the introduction of new characters and the setting for decades of future cosmic stories. .
During a recent interview with ColliderKaren Gillan, who plays Nebula in the franchise, spoke about her experience reading the script for the first time and said that it is James Gunn’s best work to date and mentioned that both she and Pom Klementieff cried when they read it together.
This is what the actress said about James Gunn’s script
“I read that script with Pom Klementieff, who plays Mantis. We read it together and we both cried and laughed, but there were full tears. It’s amazing, I think it’s James’ strongest job with the Guardians and it’s just brilliant. It’s brilliant and it’s emotional and it’s fun and it’s all those things you want. “
This is not the first time we have heard that Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 has such an emotional script that it makes those who read it cry. James Gunn has said in the past that he cried a lot when he was writing the script, which ended before his firing and ended at the end of 2020. There were also reports that several people who read it cried. All signs point to Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 it’s an emotional experience for those involved and the fans. The high quality of Gunn’s work is probably why Marvel Studios was very keen on using the script, even if he wasn’t returning to direct.
With several people involved in Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 crying as they read the script, the question arises as to what exactly Gunn has in store. The franchise is known for its comedy, but it also has some of the most emotional moments in the entire MCU. Like Yondu’s death and funeral in the sequel, in particular, it stands out as an example of Gunn’s ability to bring audiences to tears. There is already widespread speculation that Drax and Rocket Racoon will die at the end of Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3, and both deaths could explain why people get so excited about the script. Gillan could also have had such a strong reaction based on how Nebula’s bow evolves.
