James Gunn implies Guardians of the Galaxy 3 will arrive in 2020
Writer-director James Gunn has dropped a hint that Guardians of the Galaxy 3 could be landing in 2020.
Gunn shared a touching message with his Facebook fans this weekend, in which he suggested that we may be reunited with Star-Lord, Groot and the rest of the gang as early as 2020.
After thanking his Facebook friends for their continued support, Gunn signed off with: “I love you all, and I’ll continue being here with you over the next three years as we create Vol 3.”
If this means what we think it means, the third instalment of Guardians of the Galaxy should be with us in the year 2020. Hurray!
Gunn has already revealed that Guardians 3 will be the final chapter in a trilogy of films and will introduce Marvel’s classic cosmic hero Adam Warlock. It was also revealed that the movie will be set approximately four years after the events of Vol 2.
Gunn’s heartfelt Facebook post also went into detail about how artistic works gave him a sense of connection during his isolated childhood.
He wrote: “When I was young I felt utterly alone, at times to the point of suicidal thoughts. I never felt like I belonged, had an incredibly difficult time connecting to other people and, despite having love around me, I had an impossible time experiencing it, or taking it in.
“But I found my respite in popular entertainment – Marvel comics, science fiction and horror films, the music of The Sex Pistols, The Replacements, and Queen. Suddenly I could see past the bland suburbs where I lived into a more magical world, a world more aligned with what I imagined.
“Sometimes these works were simply escapist fantasies that distracted me from the difficulties of my internal life. But other times, in the strongest moments – maybe through the words of Alice Cooper or Freddie Mercury, through Cronenberg films, or even in Chewbacca’s growl, I experienced something deeper – the realization that I wasn’t completely alone. Someone out there was as weird and strange and whacked out as I was.”
Guardians of the Galaxy 2 is out in cinemas now.
