The finale of Avengers: Endgame left the fate of Guardians of the Galaxy up for a question.
Marvel confirms the third part of the famous franchise. However, it is not a part of the upcoming Phase 4, and there is no release date for it yet. The third volume of the movie was expected to be released in 2020. But due to some circumstances regarding movie director James Gunn, there have been some significant delays.
Disney fired the director in July 2018 for past controversial tweets, which were unearthed and thus caused problems for Gunn. However, on March 15, it was announced that Gunn was back on board to direct the next part of the widely popular series.
Marvel’s Phase 4 announcement at the San Diego Comic-Con confirmed that Phase 4 movies would be released during and till the end of 2021. Since Guardians of the Galaxy is not a part of the lineup, we can expect to see the movie in 2022.
With Black Panther releasing on May 6, 2022, two more marvel movies are releasing in February and July 2022. The past two films of the series have been published in July and May, respectively. We can expect the third part of the series to premiere in July 2020.
The Hollywood Reporter claims that the movie will start filming in 2020. This is because Gunn is also set to direct the DC movie The Suicide Squad, which is dated to release on August 6, 2021.
The events of Avengers: Infinity War left us with only Rocket (voiced by Bradley Cooper) and Nebula (Karen Gillian). Endgame gave us back our team of Peter Quill, aka Star-Lord (Chris Pratt), Drax (Dave Bautista), Mantis (Pom Klementieff), and Groot (voiced by Vin Diesel).
Furthermore, Gamora (Zoe Saldana) is alive, so fans can look forward to how she will fit into the narrative of the movie.
James Gunn claimed that the film would serve as an epic conclusion to the series, and we might not see the team is dispersed. It will take place at least four years after the events of Guardians Vol. 2 and the subsequent movies.
