James Gunn Confirms 'Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3' Will Conclude the Franchise

Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 director James Gunn has officially announced that the third film of his trilogy will mark the final installment that audiences will see with the original team on screen.

The first Guardians of the Galaxy film took the MCU by storm in 2014 and introduced audiences to the Star-Lord played by Chris Pratt, Gamora by Zoe Saldana, Dave Bautista as Drax the Destroyer, Bradley Cooper as Rocket Racoon and Vin Diesel as Groot. While the second film arrived in 2017, the characters reprised their roles for a larger MCU storyline in both Avengers: Infinity War and Endgame.

In a recent interview on Deadline‘s Hero Nation podcast, Gunn said, “This is the end for us, the last time people will see this team of Guardians,” as he shared that this will be the final chapter of the intergalactic franchise. Gunn also took the opportunity to tease fans of what to expect,

“It’s big; it’s so, so big and dark, and different from what people might be expecting it to be.

I just want to be true to the characters, the story and give people the wrap-up that they deserve for the story. That’s always a little bit scary; I’m doing my best.”

Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 is set to release in 2023.
