James Gunn to write, direct 'Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3'


Writer and director James Gunn has revealed that Guardians of The Galaxy Vol. 2 will have five post-credits scenes.

But announcing the news to fans on his Facebook page, Gunn said his love for the characters has tied him into a third film. But after "many months of rumination and discussions", he was ready to confirm that the franchise would become a trilogy.

Marvel's Guardians of the Galaxy: The Telltale Series launches digitally on April 18th (season pass also available) while a physical season pass disc with access to the upcoming episodes is in stores May 2nd.

Gunn explained that Vol. 3 will take place after the events of The Avengers: Infinity War, Marvel's next team-up movie that will unite the Guardians with Iron Man, Thor, Captain America, Black Widow and the Hulk. Plus, he says it will "catapult" things, which sounds like Guardians 3 will launch Phase 4 after that movie comes out in 2019. Whether it's something significant for future films or something humorous, we always stick around to see what's in store. He wrote that the USA leg of the press tour will begin this week, and he will then head to Europe to publicize the film there. He's preparing to embark on a press tour for "Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2", which opens in theaters May 5 and chose to answer the question that he'll probably be asked frequently by journalists.

Guardians of the Galaxy 2 is going to hit the big screen worldwide on May 5th. The movie's director James Gunn has even hinted on Twitter that there might even be a fifth post-credit scene. Former pro wrestler, Dave Bautista, will reprise his role as Drax the Destroyer, and actress Zoe Saldana will be coming back as Gamora.

While Marvel Studios isn't the first to have a post-credit scene, they have revolutionized the idea.

Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 doesn't have a release date yet, though we can expect it to arrive sometime around 2020.
