After months of speculation, Guardians of the Galaxy director James Gunn has revealed on social media that he will return to write and direct Volume 3 of the franchise.
“So, after many months of ruminations and discussions, I know the answer. I could save this answer for the first, random interviewer to ask me during the press junket but instead I thought I’d share it with the most important people in the Guardiansverse – you, the fans, who have been so incredibly supportive and enthusiastic over the past five years, it has moved me to tears on a regular basis. So, yes, I’m returning to write and direct Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3.”
Fans were worried that Gunn might not return to direct the third movie, but we can now rest peacefully knowing that the man responsible for the movies success will continue to work on the franchise.
