Making to epic science fiction films back to back must be tiring so I can understand why when James Gunn revealed that Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 is definitely happening he also was pretty wishy-washy on if he’d be involved in it. Talking to Complex the director shared his thinking, while casually dropping the confirmation bomb.
“There will be a Guardians 3, that’s for sure. We’re trying to figure it out,” he said like it was no big thing. “I’m trying to figure out what I want to do really, that’s all it is. I got to figure out where I want to be, what I want to spend the next three years of my life doing. You know, I’m going to make another big movie; is it the Guardians or something else? I’m just going to figure it out over the next couple of weeks.”
Gunn’s direction is one of the things that set Guardians apart from the rest of the Marvel universe so him leaving could be a big blow.
