Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 has been a much-discussed movie in part due to how Marvel fired director James Gunn over controversial tweets and then re-hired him. Now that he’s back in the director’s chair, when can fans expect the movie to actually get underway? According The Hollywood Reporter, Marvel is planning to begin shooting in 2020.
Not only that, but the stars are all expected to return for the third movie in in the trilogy.
Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 was originally expected to hit theatres in May 2020, but plans changed when Gunn was fired. Before he was re-hired, Gunn signed with Warner Bros. to write and direct The Suicide Squad. That movie is releasing in August 2021, so some expected Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 to not shoot until later. But it looks like plans have shifted forward.
The entire future of the Marvel Cinematic Universe is unclear at this stage. Marvel plans to reveal its plans for Phase 4 after the release of Spider-Man: Far From Home in July. That’s right around when Comic-Con takes place in San Diego.
