‘Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3’ Will Happen After ‘Avengers: Infinity War’

By Riezel O. / 2017.04.19

Although “Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2” hasn’t hit the theaters yet, fans are already excited for its next installation especially now that director James Gunn confirmed that he will be writing and directing Vol. 3.

In a lengthy Facebook post, the 46-year-old screenwriter explained why he finally agreed to do the last installation of the trilogy.

"I have never made choices in my career based on anything other than passion and love for the stories and characters, and I didn’t want to start now," says Gun as quoted by Entertainment Tonight.

“In the end, my love for Rocket, Groot, Gamora, Star-Lord, Yondu, Mantis, Drax, and Nebula – and some of the other forthcoming heroes – goes deeper than you guys can possibly imagine, and I feel they have more adventures to go on and things to learn about themselves and the wonderful and sometimes terrifying universe we all inhabit. And, like in both Vol. 1 and Vol. 2, we will work on creating the story that goes beyond what you expect.”

The screenwriter also noted that although Vol. 3 will end the main storyline of the “Guardians of the Galaxy,” it is not yet the end of the franchise or the characters. “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,” Gunn says as cited by Polygon.

“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.”

The film will mark the return of Chris Pratt’s Star-Lord, Zoe Saldana’s Gamora, and Dave Bautista’s Drax together with Bradley Cooper and Vin Diesel as they lend their voices to Rocket and Baby Groot. Fans will also witness the return of Michael Rooker’s Yondu and Karen Gillan’s Nebula, with the possibility of becoming the Guardians. Pom Klementieff will also join the team as Mantis while Kurt Russell play as Ego the Living Planet.

Gunn’s whole post can be read on his official Facebook page.

Meanwhile, “Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2” is slated for release on May 5.
