When James Gunn was forced to depart from Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3, meaning another director would have needed to come in and finish the Marvel Cinematic Universe trilogy he launched, my heart along with a lot of other hearts of fans worldwide was kinda broken but to our surprise eventually Disney hired Gunn back onto Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3, mostly because Gunn boarded The Suicide Squad in that interim period, we’re having to wait a lot longer for the final part of the trilogy to arrive.
Now one might think that just because Gunn’s been so focused on working within the DC realm, he might let Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 fall by the wayside. On the contrary, it is quite the opposite; in fact, as James Gunn recently revealed that there have been some behind-the-scenes developments on Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3.
Here’s how he responded to a fan inquiring about the project’s progress in a tweet that said, “Script is written and most of the production heads have been hired.”
So then that is it, while James Gunn is still putting The Suicide Squad together and working on the HBO Max spinoff series centered on John Cena’s Peacemaker, he’s also found time to push Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 a little closer to becoming a reality.
The script is finished and nearly everyone who will be overseeing aspects of the production has been brought on board. Yes, there’s still a long ways to go before Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 is ready to start filming, but at least a few pieces of the proverbial puzzle have been put into place.
