It’s really not much of a stretch to imagine that Marvel Studios will kick of it’s 2020 film slate with Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3. The first two films have been huge box office hits (the first in August and the second just this past May) and the there is already substantial hype around the third film which director James Gunn has called the last film for this iteration of the team. Despite all that, there’s been no official word from Marvel as to WHEN the third film will debut so it’s nice when Gunn throws us a bone and helps us out.
The director, who is a social media maniac, took to Facebook to thank fans and ended up answering a few questions including one about when to expect Vol. 3. Gunn’s reply was short and sweet and gave us all a headline: “in a little under 3 years.” That timeline fits nicely with a couple of Marvel Studios currently unfilled dates including May 1, 2020.
Obviously we’ll still wait to hear official word from either Gunn or Marvel Studios, but we are tentatively penciling in Vol. 3 for May 1, 2020! I’ll start my Beta Ray Bill cosplay now.
