Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 director James Gunn is nothing if not social media savvy. He has used everything from Twitter, to Instagram, to Facebook to promote the film and tease and interact with fans. Now, Gunn has taken to Facebook to thank his supporters for sticking with him through the journey of making Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2.
In the message, however, he may have hinted that Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 would be released in three years, in 2020.
“Thank you so much, my Facebook friends, for supporting me over the past two and a half years, and thank you for all the messages letting us know we’ve keyed into the frequency of your hearts. I love you all, and I’ll continue being here with you over the next three years as we create Vol. 3.”
You can read Gunn’s entire message below.
Having the third installment of the film come out in three years makes sense. The first movie came out in 2014 and Vol. 2 this year, so it would certainly continue the three-year trend for the third and final film in the franchise. It might feel a bit agonizing, but the payoff will surely be worth it.
Set to the backdrop of ‘Awesome Mixtape #2,’ Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 continues the team’s adventures as they traverse the outer reaches of the cosmos. The Guardians must fight to keep their newfound family together as they unravel the mysteries of Peter Quill’s true parentage. Old foes become new allies and fan-favorite characters from the classic comics will come to our heroes’ aid as the Marvel cinematic universe continues to expand.
Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 stars Chris Pratt, Zoe Saldana, Dave Bautista, Micheal Rooker, Kurt Russell, and the voices of Vin Diesel and Bradley Cooper.
The film is now playing in theaters everywhere.
