James Gunn announced via Facebook yesterday that he will be returning to write and direct the third installment in the “Guardians of the Galaxy” movie franchise.
Gunn released a statement that said:
“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.” In the end, my love for Rocket, Groot, Gamora, Star-Lord, Yondu, Mantis, Drax, and Nebula – and some of the other forthcoming heroes – goes deeper than you guys can possibly imagine, and I feel they have more adventures to go on and things to learn about themselves and the wonderful and sometimes terrifying universe we all inhabit. And, like in both Vol. 1 and Vol. 2, we will work on creating the story that goes beyond what you expect.”
Gunn also ventured to say that “Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3” would help set up the next decade of storytelling in the universe of Marvel and that he endeavored to make sure the future of Marvel would be as “special and authentic and magical” as its past.
I can’t wait for Guardians of the Galaxy Vol 2 and even more excited knowing there will be a Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 as well!
