With the highly successful Guardians of the Galaxy series currently working its third installment fans are eagerly awaiting any news on its production. The film began principle photography back on November of 2021 and is currently filming in Atlanta, Georgia.
Recently in an interview director James Gunn commented on some new details for his 3rd GotG film as well as the GotG Holiday Special:
“It’s still upcoming in the shoot. We were supposed to shoot one day in LA, and there’s too much Omicron around, so we couldn’t do it. We’re going to have to fit it in. I haven’t started yet. I’m excited to. It’s fun. The holiday special is… I’m almost jealous of it, even though I wrote it because people freak out so much on how much they love the script for the holiday special that I’m almost like, ‘Well, wait. I’ve got this movie here I’ve been working on for two years. You love the holiday special that I literally wrote in a very short amount of time.’ But, it is really funny and really good.“
Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 is said to be the final installment in the trilogy. Though it is currently unknown who the final cast for the film will be but it is confirmed that Starlord, Gamora, Groot, Rocket Racoon, Drax, Nebula and Mantis are confirmed to return. Also Sylvester Stallone will be reprising his role as Stakar Ogord and we will see the MCU debut of Adam Warlock, played by Will Poulter. Also actor Chukwudi Iwuji has been cast in a currently undisclosed role. It is not currently known how Gamora will return due to her soul being lost in Avengers: Infinity War, but it will be interesting to see the explanation they’ll give.
Though it is unknown if other characters like Kraglin or Howard the Duck will appear, but fans are hoping out to see Lylla the Otter, Rocket Raccoon’s comic book girlfriend.
Hopefully when we see the final chapter in this series it will be worth the wait. The film releases May 5th, 2023.
