Marvel Studios has quite a few exciting projects heading our way, but many are excited to see James Gunn finally get a chance to end his Guardians of the Galaxy trilogy. While the project has entered production at a later point than initially planned, we still get to see his vision come to life and continue the story of Star-Lord, Rocket, Gamora, Drax, Mantis, and Groot across the MCU’s galaxy. It seems that the third entry may offer something quite unique.
In an interview with Collider, the director revealed that Marvel Studios has already seen some parts of the film and it seems they are quite happy, especially its CEO Kevin Feige. He also praises Chukwudi Iwuji‘s performance, who’ll have a larger role in the upcoming project, as teased by the project.
It’s going great. Chukwudi, who plays Murn in Peacemaker, is one of the main characters in the movie and people are freaking out over how good this guy is. Literally freaking out. I think that I’m really happy. I gave a bunch of scenes to Marvel right before Christmas break. Kevin [Feige] went… They were all really, really, really stoked. But also, it’s not going to be the movie people… It’s different than what people are going to expect. It’s a hard road, but I’m really happy with it so far.James Gunn
Some rumors believe that Iwuji might be playing the film’s main antagonist that is very likely the creator of Rocket, the High Evolutionary. He was revealed as part of the cast in a set photo from the production’s first day, and it’s great to see his performance receiving praise. We cannot wait to see what the third entry has to offer and what Gunn means with it being different.
