Guardians Holiday Special Is Phase 4 Epilogue Says James Gunn

The latest Barside Buzz is that Marvel are to make more one-off Specials like Werewolf by Night and GOTG Holiday Special.

There was no mention of the Guardians Holiday Special at SDCC. However, as confirmed by James Gunn, Guardians Holiday Special is the Phase 4 epilogue. Yes, that means we have some direct confirmation that the Guardians Holiday Special will be out on Disney+ for this Xmas season.

Although Marvel declared Wakanda Forever as the end of Phase 4 and Quantumania as the start of Phase 5, the Guardians HS falls in between both. Gunn clarified how he sees it on social media after a question from a fan.

I guess being that they are one of specials, Marvel decided to not included either the Guardians Holiday Special or their Halloween Special in the SDCC presentation. However it does kinda weirdly make the Guardians HS look weirdly forgotten about, I’m sure James Gunn isn’t bothered. In fact, in a later reply Gunn made it clear that the Phases are more of a studio thing than for the directors.

Pretty much tells you all you need know about that.

There are no official details about the Guardians Holiday Special. However there are a few things we know from the BTS shots during production. For one, it seem like the show is set around Christmas in North America, Earth. It also seems as though Kevin Bacon may be involved or something was shot in and around his home at the time.

Lastly a few Easter eggs already and some early rumors point towards a certain Marvel character showing up. One of Marvel’s Omega level Mutants in fact. Yup, of course I am referring to, Santa Claus. Whilst there are no direct claims to who might be playing Santa, there was some early buzz around conversations between Gunn and a relatively known young actor called Mark Hamill, who shot to stardom playing the lead role in one of those Star Wars movies.

I’m talking wild rumor here though, so take that last part with a big dose of sodium.
