This is a very exciting announcement for fans Guardians of the Galaxy Vol 3 is almost done filming. With less than two weeks of shooting still to go on the Marvel Studios sequel, time is running out for director James Gunn to solve the long-running Rick and Morty mystery happening on the Atlanta set since February. (An unidentified person is conspicuously placing Rick and Morty toys for Gunn to find. Isn’t that fun?) When documenting day 35 of the toy takeover suspected to be the prank of a secret cast member, writer, and director James Gun revealed only 13 days remain until wrapping up on the Guardians of the Galaxy threequel.
“Day 35. Plush Lizard Morty. We still have 13 days left,” Gunn tweeted Wednesday of the so far 156-day shoot that commenced early November in Atlanta, Georiga.
Along with returning the Guardians cast members Chris Pratt as Star-Lord, Zoe Saldana as Gamora, Dave Bautista as Drax, Karen Gillen as Nebula, Pom Klementieff as Mantis, Sean Gunn as Kraglin, Sylvester Stallone as Stakar Ogord, and voice actors Vin Diesel As Groot, and Bradley Cooper as Rocket Raccoon, MCU first-timers include Will Poulter from The Maze Runner as Adam Warlock and Chukwudi Iwuji from Gunn’s Peacemaker in an undisclosed role.
The Last Guardians Of The Galaxy Movie
After directing 2014’s Guardians of the Galaxy film, its 2017 sequel Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2, and the upcoming Disney+ TV special The Guardians of the Galaxy Holiday Special, Vol 3 is expected to be the final Gunn-directed installment in the franchise with the original cast.
“The last Marvel project, who knows, but I see it as my last Guardians movie,” Gunn previously told Entertainment Tonight of his trilogy finale. “I’m a guy who never says never because I’ve seen too many people say ‘never’ and be pulled back into the fray, so I wouldn’t say that ‘it’s my last Marvel movie.’ But I see it as being my last Guardians movie.”
Gunn added, “I know Dave (Bautista) sees it as being his last Guardians movie, and Dave and I are pretty much attached to the hip on those projects. So I don’t see me going on and doing any more after that.”
Marvel Studios releases Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 in theaters on May 5th, 2023.
