Guardians of the Galaxy Vol 3 directorial work will start soon as James Gunn is almost done with DC’s The Suicide Squad. While Disney firing James Gunn and hiring him back was bound to happen, the only thing it managed to do was delay the movie. However, Gunn has already finished the script for Guardians Vol 3 and it won’t be affected by Avengers: Endgame as it was written keeping the connection in mind.
If it wasn’t for Disney firing James Gunn…….
We would be getting a Guardians Vol 3 trailer right now🤦🏾♂️
