James Gunn is set to come back for Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 and this time he is set to write and direct the next sequel.
The director made the announcement today via his Facebook page, ahead of the start of the Guardians Of The Galaxy Vol. 2 U.S. press junkets.
“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,”
“So, yes, I’m returning to write and direct Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3.”
Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 will be released May 5, 2017 with Avengers: Infinity War Part I hits theaters on May 4, 2018 and Part II on May 3, 2019.
