James Gunn has actively been teasing the production start for Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 throughout the last few weeks. After the casting of Will Poulter as Adam Warlock got announced, it looks like they already entered production. Chris Pratt shared a video from the set through Team Coco’s Twitter account confirming that production has started. Sadly, he doesn’t reveal much, as it’s mainly there to promote a look back at his famous Parks and Recreation character Andy Dwyer. Still, it’s good to know that production has finally kicked off for the long-awaited threequel.
It’s crazy to think how long it took us to get to this moment. After James Gunn left the production due to controversial tweets, the franchise’s future was in jeopardy. Now, the director has seen a resurgence with his work on The Suicide Squad, HBO Max’s Peacemaker series, and the return to the third Guardians of the Galaxy film. Of course, there’s the question if they are already starting work on The Guardians of the Galaxy Holiday Special for Disney+, which was confirmed to shoot simultaneously.
Perhaps, they are currently getting a few specific shots through and then tackling the special throughout the production depending on what actors they require for different scenes. Gunn did tease that we’ll get quite a few special secrets in it, as it also builds into the threequel. As production starts, here’s also the hope we might get a glimpse at the production and what we can expect from the potentially last entry in this franchise.
