Production on the third installment within the Guardians of the Galaxy trilogy is finally taking place as the film and holiday special is set to film back to back. Writer and director James Gunn returns to helm the project hot off of the release of The Suicide Squad and wrapping production Peacemaker.
Not much is known about the film aside from Adam Warlock finally making his debut into the Marvel Cinematic Universe after the Guardians of The Galaxy Vol 2 end credit scene teased his arrival. Will Poulter will play the character, having recently been confirmed to join the cast, but it seems Gunn may have just confirmed and added yet another past cast member to this film. In a recent post to Twitter, featuring a photo of him with the cast of Guardians of The Galaxy Vol 3, it seems Peacemaker star Chukwudi Iwuji may have joined the upcoming Marvel film.
It’s unknown who Iwuji may be playing as this is currently the only confirmation of his addition to the film. The director of Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 also shared his excitement to work alongside the actor once more.
It’s not uncommon for Gunn to bring back past actors, especially if he loved working with them. In almost every one of his films, both Nathan Fillion and Michael Rooker have played some role, just recently having played TDK and Savant in The Suicide Squad. Iwuji plays Clemson Murn in Peacemaker, a seemingly original character created by Gunn for the series. Surely Gunn will make his way to social media soon to confirm Iwujis return.
