Production for Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 is set to start early next year, and director James Gunn has been speaking about the movie. Gunn has gone on record to say that Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 will be “very, very different” from what has come before.
Gunn recently took part in one of his regular Facebook Q&As and gave fans an update on the state of Vol. 3‘s script.
I’m more than a year into the process, so the script is far along. For many many months, I first write the treatment which is 80 pages or so with photographs. That turns into GotG. I’m now rewriting and making sure my rough draft works.
The filmmaker assured fans that the Marvel threequel won’t be a clone of its predecessors. Far from it, in fact.
It’s very, very, very different. Very different, but I won’t say how! You’ll have to wait to see the movie, it’s a long time away.
Gunn was also asked if Disney’s potential purchase of Fox’s entertainment assets would affect the story, given he might soon have access to Fox’s Marvel characters. The filmmaker quickly shot down those suggestions.
Not gonna happen in any major way. Too far along.
Gunn first confirmed that he would return for another Guardians movie in April last year. With a tentative May 2020 release window in place, it’s far too early for James Gunn to divulge any details from the Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 script.
Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 is scheduled to premiere sometime in 2020.
