A while back actor Mark Hamill and director James Gunn had an interesting exchange on Twitter. An exchange that led many fans to hope they would get to see Hamill in the third volume of the Guardians of the Galaxy franchise which is set to be released in 2020.
There was even confirmation that he met with James Gunn not so long back. So did this confirm his involvement in the science fantasy threequel? Apparently not, as the duo seemed to have discussed everything but Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3. And, from the sound of it, Hamill isn’t exactly itching to discuss the movie, as the actor revealed to Collider.
“So, I like the movies, They’re fine. But I’m happy to be in the audience, there’s a lot less pressure. That’s why I like Solo and Rogue One so much. There was 100% less Hamill, so I didn’t have any sort of anxiety. I could just be in the audience, it was great.”

This seems to be a big change in Hamill’s attitude as in the original exchange it appeared he was very interested in appearing in the upcoming film. Hamill initially appeared to be completely against the way his Luke Skywalker character was portrayed in The Last Jedi, but has stepped that back some since. While I don’t recall Hamill receiving much guff for Luke (Rian Johnson has, of course, endured his fair share) one has to wonder if the reaction to the film had some part to play in Hamill’s new attitude toward appearing in Guardians, or any big franchise for that matter.
