It feels like fans have been waiting a lifetime for the release of Marvel’s highly anticipated Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3. Luckily Chris Pratt teased that production is soon underway in a brief video from set today. Shortly before, Gunn took to Twitter today to reveal that the third installment in his sci-fi trilogy has completed it’s casting process, which supposedly started all the way back in April. The news from Gunn comes on the heels of a big announcement about the casting of Will Poulter as Adam Warlock, a perfect being created by Elizabeth Debicki‘s Ayesha who was teased during the end credits of Vol. 2.
The phrasing of the tweet seems to hint at multiple new additions to the film, presumably on top of Poulter‘s Warlock. It’s unknown who these other new actors are, or who they might be playing, but it’s likely this information will come to light as the start of production quickly approaches. Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 will see the return of all the franchise’s major players, including Chris Pratt‘s Star-Lord and Zoe Saldana‘s time displaced Gamora, on the heels of their guest appearance in Taika Waititi‘s Thor: Love and Thunder. The film currently has a release date of May 5, 2023, though it is yet to be seen if that will be impacted by the recent delay of Marvel’s other Phase 4 entries like Doctor Strange In the Multiverse of Madness and Black Panther: Wakanda Forever.
