North Americans are a few short days away from the release of Marvel Studiosâ€™ next film, Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2. Based on the critics â€” not to mention fans who have seen it overseas â€” it sounds like Marvel Studios has yet another feather in its proverbial cap. It currently sits at a solid 86% on Rotten Tomatoes, and whatâ€™s more, director James Gunn has already announced that he would be returning for the sequel, Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3.
The announcement was made less than a month ago, and given that the filmmaker has just finished his publicity rounds (or is, at the very least, winding down), youâ€™d think heâ€™d fly off to the Poconos for a month or so to get a much-needed vacation. But, like any true filmmaker, he seems to be more preoccupied with the next big project.
Speaking with USA Today, Gunn revealed that heâ€™s already started writing Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3. The outlet continues, stating that Gunn has discussed the story with star Chris Pratt, and has also had â€œsome pretty intense conversationsâ€ wiht Saldana about a â€œsignificant roleâ€ in the sequel.
In our recent interview with Saldana, she played coy when discussing the possibility of sequels, adding an â€œif Iâ€™m in itâ€ when mentioning the possibility of shaving down her makeup time in the future production. Itâ€™s no real surprise that Gamora would be involved in this threequel. She is a crucial member of the current iteration of the Guardians. But in a world where nearly any character is interchangeable, you never know, so a confirmation is always nice.
If any of you are worried that Gunn will jump straight into this next film, fret not, as it sounds like he has a vacation in mind very soon â€” a place where he can â€œget [his] head on straight after three years of waking up and going to sleep and thinking about a talking raccoon.â€
Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 hits theaters this Friday!
