Guardians of the Galaxy 3: James Gunn’s script leaves readers in TEARS | Films | Entertainment |
It was due for release in 2020, but following the resurfacing of decade-old controversial tweet, Marvel director Gunn was fired. Nevertheless, Disney still plans to use the filmmaker’s script for Guardians of the Galaxy Vol 3. And according to Slash Film’s sources, the story left its readers in tears. The outlet’s Peter Sciretta tweeted the tease a couple of days ago.

He tweeted: “If I had somehow talked to two separate people, who somehow read James Gunn’s Guardians 3 script, and both told me that it made them cry, I probably wouldn’t be able to say any more.”
Earlier this year the former director’s brother Sean, who plays Kraglin and Rocket’s body, gave an update on the movie.
Speaking with Tulsa World, he said: “I don’t really know yet what’s going on with Guardians 3. I know that Disney still wants to make the movie.
“I know that they have every intention of using the script that my brother wrote.”

He continued: “Obviously, that was a very unfortunate situation for everybody, most of all him, but I am also somebody who had been preparing to spend half a year making that movie and now that’s up in the air.
“Obviously, I think it’s a tricky proposition for them to find another director to step in — and also the scheduling of a lot of other actors who are incredibly busy can’t be easy.
“But I know that they plan on making the movie.”
“I had not been contacted at all for a while, but I was recently contacted by Marvel saying, ‘Yeah, we do plan to make this movie. We’re just not sure when yet.’”

On Avengers Endgame, Sean teased: “I can tell you this. I can tell you that the movie is going to be really excellent. We shot them originally pretty much back-to-back with a short break.”
“And I like Avengers 4 even more than Infinity War. At least from the script and from shooting it, and I was really happy with Infinity War.
“So I’m very hopeful that it’s going to be a great movie.”
Guardians of the Galaxy Vol 3 will be released in 2021.
