We are getting a second movie, sure, but what about plans for a third movie? Well, Director James Gunn said there still are no plans for a third movie and he doesn’t know for sure what he wants to do next.
We’ve seen James Gunn interact with fans on Facebook and this is no difference. On Facebook he answered a fan question if we could expect a third movie and this was his answer:
“There are no real plans, and I haven’t made up my mind yet what I’m doing next.”
James Gunn himself already made it clear that this story of Guardians of the Galaxy vol. 2 isn’t meant to lead anywhere. Which means we will see no Thanos or infinity stones.
“I’m dealing with this one story. It’s not like I have to change something now for something in the future. It’s more like whatever happens in the future will have to be changed by what’s created now.”
But he also said this in the same Q&A:
“Do I have plans for a potential ‘Vol. 3?’ Yeah, if I did it — but I’m not sure if I will.”
So, we might not get a Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 directed by James Gunn, but what we do know for sure us that we are getting a Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2! This movie will hit the theatres on May 5, 2017.
