Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 offered audiences explosive action and spectacular visuals, but the film also delved inside the history and emotional core of the team, allowing fans to better understand the team of eccentric heroes. Their story will continue when director James Gunn returns to write and directed the third chapter of the Guardians story, news the filmmaker confirmed before the second film had even been released. However, while fans may be excited to embark on a third adventure with the team of unlikely heroes, Gunn recently revealed that Vol. 3 will be the final film to feature the current members of the team during a Facebook Q & A session.
While the Guardians film series may continue, Gunn made it clear that the next film will conclude the story of the current team.
“With this iteration of the Guardians of the Galaxy, there will be three movies. So this next movie is the final film for this iteration of the Guardians.”
While the current team may continue to appear in other Marvel Studios projects, including future Avengers films, it will be difficult to say goodbye to the current cast in the main Guardians film series. How do you feel about concluding the current team’s story? Share your thoughts below!
