There’s been a lot of talk this year about director James Gunn’s work over at Warner Bros., with The Suicide Squad arriving in theaters in August and the standalone Peacemaker series heading to HBO Max after that.
Once those projects are complete, however, Gunn will make his triumphant return to Marvel Studios to finish the Guardians of the Galaxy trilogy. Fans don’t have much longer to wait to get a glimpse of what Gunn has in store for Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3, as the filmmaker has confirmed once again that filming will begin this year.
It may come as a surprise given how many Marvel projects are currently in the works, but Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 is indeed heading into production at some point in 2021. It likely won’t be until the later part of the year, as Gunn will need to finish Peacemaker and do some press for The Suicide Squad after its release in August, but there haven’t been any delays in the schedule as of late.
At present, Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 is slated to arrive in theaters in 2023.
