Some Guy You May Have Heard of Will Direct and Write Guardians of the Galaxy 3

Who could it possibly be?

Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 isn’t even out yet but we already have our first bit of news on the third installment of the Marvel franchise. Some dude announced that he will write and direct the project but who could it possibly be? Any guesses?

Big shocker here: It’s James Gunn! The director of the previous installments said so on his favorite platform to spill his feelings, Facebook.

“So, after many months of ruminations and discussions, I know the answer. I could save this answer for the first, random interviewer to ask me during the press junket but instead I thought I’d share it with the most important people in the Guardiansverse–you, the fans, who have been so incredibly supportive and enthusiastic over the past five years, it has moved me to tears on a regular basis,” he wrote. “So, yes, I’m returning to write and direct Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3.” Wow, I did not see that coming at all.

He continued: “Much of what’s happened in the MCU for the past ten or so years has been leading, in a big way, to the Avengers’ Infinity War. Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 will happen after all that. It will conclude the story of this iteration of the Guardians of the Galaxy, and help catapult both old and new Marvel characters into the next ten years and beyond. I will be working side-by-side with Kevin Feige and the gang to help design where these stories go, and make sure the future of the Marvel Cosmic Universe is as special and authentic and magical as what we have created so far.”

So there you have it. Vol. 3 will conclude this wonderful, funny and heartwarming space adventure but there will be a bit of a wait. In the meantime, you can catch Vol. 2 in theaters on May 5.
