James Gunn, who is also the film’s writer and director, updates Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 with assurance. After working on The Suicide Squad and Peacemaker for the DC Universe, Gunn is back with Marvel Studios to complete the trilogy of Guardians of the Galaxy films. The release of Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 was initially scheduled to be one of the first films in Marvel Cinematic Universe’s Phase 4, but it was ultimately postponed due to Gunn’s firing and rehiring, as well as the coronavirus pandemic. Now, though, Gunn is occupied with post-production, and a May 2023 release date has been set.
The Guardians of the Galaxy Holiday Special, which will air on Disney+, is presently receiving press attention before Gunn’s final MCU film, after which he will only work on DCU as its co-CEO alongside Peter Safran. He may now provide an update on how the production of his impending threequel is proceeding by doing so. According to Gunn, who reassures this in a recent interview with EW, guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 will satisfactorily close the MCU sub-franchise. Below is his complete statement:
It was really hard. This Christmas special was the easiest thing of all time. The movie was the hardest thing I’ve ever done. I’m starting to feel pretty good because I’m starting to see it come together. I’m starting to see how people react to it, and I’m seeing what works. Most of the work now is on VFX and dealing with the score with John Murphy, who did such a spectacular job with the holiday special. But I’ve started to feel pretty comfortable with it because I just want to honor these characters and honor the fans that have supported us this whole way.
Does This Indicate That GOTG Vol. 3’s First Trailer Will Be Released Soon?
Gunn will devote the next few months to Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 before beginning his sole work on DC. The movie’s principal photography is finished, and the filmmaker now has ample time to focus on post-production. Given this, it’s intriguing to wonder if Marvel Studios is getting set to unveil the first trailer for Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3. For background, Marvel Studios went back to Hall H in 2022 to lay out its Multiverse Saga plans for the remainder of the year. At the occasion, Gunn unveiled the first piece of official video; however, it wasn’t made available online, so a promotional clip is now ready to be shared.
However, the fact that a trailer already exists does not automatically give Marvel Studios permission to release it. The Guardians of the Galaxy Holiday Special on Disney+ and Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania are two more movies in the current MCU Phase 5 schedule that come before Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3. On the franchise’s schedule are also upcoming MCU Disney+ series. In light of this, Disney and Marvel Studios must be strategic with their advertising preparations. Probably, the first official Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 trailers won’t debut until the year’s end or the beginning of 2023 based on their previous promotional schedule.
