Deadline has breaking news that Disney has reinstated writer-director James Gunn on Marvel’s Guardians of The Galaxy 3, it was revealed recently that they still planned on using Gunn’s script and would be a bit of production delay. They also add that filming won’t begin until James finishes work on The Suicide Squad.
Redemption and second chances have long been superhero movie staples, and today it looks like life has imitated art. I’ve learned that Disney has reinstated James Gunn as the writer-director of Guardians of the Galaxy 3, and I’ve confirmed it with Marvel and Gunn’s camp.
Gunn’s return to Guardians of the Galaxy 3 got complicated when he signed on to write and direct the Suicide Squad sequel for Warner Bros and DC. Marvel Studios has agreed to commence production on Guardians of the Galaxy 3 after Gunn completes Suicide Squad 2.
Gunn had recently been hired by Warner Bros. to write and direct The Suicide Squad starring Idris Elba as Deadshot (replacing Will Smith) and Margot Robbie as Harley Quinn with production expected to begin this fall in Atlanta.
It looks like that 2021 production start on Guardians 3 is indeed accurate.
Guardians of The Galaxy 3 is currently without an official release date.
