The third instalment in the very famous series of Guardians of the Galaxy was initially expected to come out in 2020 as one of the first movies from MCU. The upcoming release would be part of Marvel’s Phase 4. However, some behind-the-scenes drama involving the firing (and rehiring) of writer-director James Gunn has led to an extension in its delay.
Luckily for the fans, Marvel Studios boss Kevin Feige confirmed at Comic-Con that they are working on Guardians 3, even though it is not one of the five movies scheduled for Phase 4 release.
Here’s everything for you to know about it.
Guardians of the Galaxy Vol 3 Release Date: When Will It Arrive?
As per The Hollywood Reporter, the production for the film has now been put on hold (August 25). This indicates that for now, the release date is uncertain and is difficult to even predict.
Guardians Of The Galaxy Vol 3 Director:
Last year in March, Disney reinstated James Dunn for Director of this upcoming film. The news was that it was not long since Disney fired him.
Well, good news for the fans, James Gunn is back on board. He will be helming the third chapter with Star-Lord and company. He was indeed let go from the project in July 2018 due to some of his old controversial tweets.

A fan of the Marvel cinematic universe asked Gunn in a comment on his recent post to Instagram. He asked if it was true that Twilight fame Robert Pattinson will star in Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3. To this, Gunn simply replied: “No, it’s definitely not.”
The Film’s Production Time
In the same Instagram post, director Gunn commented on the production start date for Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3.
Indigenously, it was supposed to be shooting throughout 2019, but it has been paused while he is busy shooting The Suicide Squad from Warner Brothers.
Gunn also commented that he “won’t start filming for a year or so,” which means that the production on the third Guardians movie is not likely to start until 2021 or 2020 end.
