Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 is an upcoming 2018 superhero film based on the Marvel Comics team of the same name. It is planned for Phase Four of the Marvel Cinematic Universe sharing continuity with the films and TV shows of the franchise.



Talk about a third Guardians of the Galaxy film began soon after Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 released with James Gunn stating that he would like to use the Adam Warlock character (who, unlike the comics, didn't appear in the Infinity films) and saying that it would possibly release at 2020 at best.

Things got out of hand when Disney fired James Gunn over controversial tweets he made in the past, which delayed the movie's production indefinitely.[1]

Following some time and before the release of Avengers: Endgame, Disney rehired the director once again but at the time he had already taken the job of directing DC's Suicide Squad 2.

Avengers: Endgame ends with a tease of what's to come for the guardians, Peter Quil is shown to be searching for Gamora (who's now possibly alive thanks to time travel shenanigans) and Thor references Asgardians of the Galaxy while Nebula is now officially a member of the team.

It was confirmed afterward that the movie will begin shooting in 2020.[2]
