After everything that happened in the last Avengers movies, it seems impossible for the Guardians to come together again but fans cannot help but wait and hope for Guardians of the Galaxy 3. The concerns over the next film are based on the death of Gamora, in Avengers: Infinity War. Fans are naturally thinking that her death will break up the group. However, the director and writer of the movies, James Gunn also said in an interview in 2014 that they were imagining the franchise to consist of 3 films. So, is there going to be the 3rd movie?
It’s been 5 years since the last Guardians movie was released. The 1st movie of the series came out in 2014 and the 2nd in 2017. After the 2nd movie, James Gunn was fired due to the resurfacing of his controversial tweets. Although with a high amount of controversy and speculation, the writer was re-hired after a few months, apparently for Guardians of the Galaxy 3.
Guardians of the Galaxy 3
After James Gunn was re-hired for the next movie, it was now certain that there would be the next movie but we did not know when. In May 2021, Marvel released an official video with the release dates of its upcoming films. Of course, Guardians of the Galaxy 3 was there as well and the release date was shown as May 5, 2023. Although we are happy that we are going to see one of our favorite teams again, there is still a year for that to happen.
According to some sources, the filming for the 3rd movie started in November 2021 and is expected to continue until April 2022.
The cast of Guardians of the Galaxy
After the death of Gamora (Zoe Saldana), we are sure everyone was quite disappointed. However, she came back for the 2nd Avengers movie as a younger version of herself who traveled to the present. It looks like she is going to do the same for the next Guardians movie but we don’t know any other details.
The other major characters that are definitely going to return are Chris Pratt’s Peter Quill, Dave Bautista’s Drax, Vin Diesel’s Groot (voice), Bradley Cooper’s Rocket (voice), Karen Gillan’s Nebula, and Pom Klementieff’s Mantis.
New cast members will also be joining. For instance, Will Poulter will play Adam Warlock, an enemy of the Guardians. Chukwudi Iwuji, a Nigerian-British actor, will also play in the movie but his role is still undisclosed.
Guardians of the Galaxy: Cosmic Rewind
Guardians of the Galaxy: Cosmic Rewind is an upcoming roller coaster attraction coming to Walt Disney World. A few days ago the company announced that the ride is going to officially open on May 27, 2022. The attraction is going to be the biggest addition to Disney World for its 50th Anniversary.
The attraction will be in Epcot, one of the theme parks in Disney World. The roller coaster is going to be about story-telling, so you will probably see scenes from the movies as you move on with the roller coaster. The vehicles of the roller coaster will be able to rotate 360 degrees and do a reverse launch, which is a first for Disney World. Disney Parks released the below video in November 2020, showcasing the abilities of the new vehicles.
