It feels like forever since the third entry of Guardians of the Galaxy first got announced. James Gunn was busy directing the upcoming The Suicide Squad film and is currently continuing his work on the Peacemaker spin-off. So, Vol. 3 is next on his list and we already got a teaser by Karen Gillan that she was preparing the molds for her return as Nebula. Luckily, @cosmic_marvel grabbed the images she shared on Instagram Story preparing the mold for her return to play the character
So, it was only a question of when the film might enter production this year. Luckily, Chris Pratt revealed during a segment on Jimmy Kimmel Live that they are currently eyeing a production start in November. He said that the film will go on until April 2022. He also confirmed that the script used in the upcoming film will be the same that Gunn wrote before he had to exit the project. Luckily, he was reinstated in March to end the trilogy he started back in 2014. The only question remains if the Holiday Special for Disney+ might get filmed in advance, which might be why Gillan is already preparing the mold now, or if that’ll be the first thing filmed in November.
It’s uncertain what the trilogy’s end might mean for the future of the franchise and if we might get a brand new team. As the franchise starts to expand into the multiverse through Loki, it’s uncertain what the future holds for the cosmic side of the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Perhaps the upcoming third entry might offer a glimpse at its future.
