The production of Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 has been evolving at a quick pace, with director James Gunn providing regular updates on Twitter. According to the writer and director, any ambiguity about which of his three cosmic Marvel Cinematic Universe projects was filming at any one time has been resolved.
The crew of Guardians has been shooting both for a theme park ride called Cosmic Rewind, a holiday special, and their third feature-length sequel. On every level, it appears to be a logistical nightmare for them to simultaneously film three separate productions, one of which is a full-length movie.
But, with a little over a year until Vol. 3 comes out, the Super and Slither filmmaker has called it completed. Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 will surpass Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness to take the longest gap ever between standalone MCU installments when it opens next year. It will exactly six years to the day after its predecessor debuted.

Not that Gunn is resting on his laurels anytime soon, given that Peacemaker season 2 is gearing up shortly and he’ll executive produce
The Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 has been a long time in coming, but we have complete faith that it will be able to live up to the extreme expectations fans have built up in their minds.
