Guardians of the Galaxy 3 has a May 5, 2023 release date directed by James Gunn starring Chris Pratt, Dave Bautista, Karen Gillan, Vin Diesel and Bradley Cooper, with Will Poulter cast as Adam Warlock.


Vin Diesel Confirmed For Guardians of the Galaxy 3, Err 2


Guardians of the Galaxy 3 isn’t even in the cards, and we already get confirmation that Vin Diesel will be back as Groot?!

That’s exactly what James Gunn confirmed on Facebook, but quickly caught himself and stated it’s for the sequel.

A fan asked Gunn: “Will Vin Diesel be back in GOTG3?”

Gunn replied, “Yes.”

Another fan noticed the question and inquired about Gunn confirming Vin Diesel for Guardians of the Galaxy 3.

Gunn replied back, “No – he means 2 and that’s what I was responding to. Stop it.” Gunn also further commented: “Believe me I have to be careful because it will be picked up as my confirming 3.”

While we do believe Gunn was referring to Vin Diesel reprising as Groot for Guardians of the Galaxy 2 (sorta), a few months ago Gunn did tease Guardians of the Galaxy 3.

“I knew for a long time what the story of the second one was gonna be,” Gunn said, before teasing, “And the third one!” 

“Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2” has a May 5, 2017 release.

Vin Diesel brought “I Am Groot” to life not only for English audiences, but for fans around the globe. Check out behind-the-scenes footage of Vin Diesel recording Groot in foreign languages for Guardians of the Galaxy:

Chris Pratt & Guardians of the Galaxy Speculated For Avengers: Infinity War


Some details on Chris Pratt’s Marvel contract come to light hinting Star-Lord and the Guardians of the Galaxy may be appearing in The Avengers: Infinity War movies, which shouldn’t be a surprise with cosmic bad guy Thanos being the villain.

Pratt recently spoke to GQ where he let it be known his Marvel contract extends through five movies.

“..I’m tied to doing three more, or five more, Guardians of the Galaxy or whatever it is, you know, two more Guardians plus another couple…”

The article goes on to note that they think Pratt actually means he is doing Guardians of the Galaxy 2 and Guardians of the Galaxy 3 in addition to two spin-off projects, which we assume could be The Avengers: Infinity War movies.

Guardians of the Galaxy 2 is already in the works and is currently being written by James Gunn.

Gunn previously mentioned the third Guardians of the Galaxy movie about a month ago.

“I knew for a long time what the story of the second one was gonna be,” Gunn said, before teasing, “And the third one!” 

“Guardians of the Galaxy 2” has a May 5, 2017 release; “The Avengers: Infinity War” Part 1 kicks off May 4, 2018 followed by Part 2 on May 3, 2019.

James Gunn Talks Guardians of the Galaxy 2 & 3



James Gunn recently attended the Red Carpet premiere for The Avengers 2 where he discussed Guardians of the Galaxy 2 and even mentioned a third film.

Vulture caught up with Gunn who teased the sequel will be more about Star-Lord and his father. Star-Lord’s father was absent from the first Guardians of the Galaxy movie, but is said to be an alien (though apparently SL’s father will be different than the comics).

“There’s a lot of stuff I’m excited about in the new movie,” Gunn offered. “Listen, I’m still excited about Star-Lord’s character and where he goes. At its heart, Guardians is a story about families, and if the first film was about him and his mother, this is a story about fathers. So it’s exciting to go there.”

As Gunn notes “fathers,” perhaps he is also talking about the “fathers” of the other characters as well. Maybe we’ll learn more about the Gamora, Nebula and Thanos relationship or even about Drax’s origins. It’s even possible we could learn more about where Groot came from.

With the first Guardians of the Galaxy movie being such a success, Disney quickly announced a sequel, so it should be no surprise that Gunn mentions the possibility of a third film.

“I knew for a long time what the story of the second one was gonna be,” Gunn said, before teasing, “And the third one!” 

Update: Gunn offers more in the following video with: “I think it’s about getting to know the characters a little bit more… and also get a little bit more – I don’t want to say serious – but go a little bit deeper with who the characters are.”

Gunn also says we’ll get to know more from Gamora, Nebula and Yondu “in a way we got to know some of the characters in the first movie.”

Update #2: Gunn offered the follwing on Facebook:

I did five short interviews on the red carpet at the Age of Ultron premiere, and it’s all been distilled to three topics: 1) Guardians of the Galaxy 2 is about Fatherhood, 2) We’ll get to know Gamora, Nebula, and Yondu more in the sequel, and 3) I think the mix for Awesome Mix Vol. 2 is better than Awesome mix Vol. 1. There. I just saved you ten thousand articles.

PS All of this is subject to change. Although I have a very intense and specific 70 page treatment (or scriptment as it’s often called, because it contains dialogue), I am just now diving into the actual script. If inspiration strikes I can, and often do, diverge wildly from my original plan. In a couple weeks, Guardians 2 could center around the love triangle of Awesome Android, Paste Pot Pete, and Taserface, backed by an all-Spice-Girls soundtrack. 

“Guardians of the Galaxy 2” has a May 5, 2017 release.
