Marvel’s Kevin Feige On Status Of ‘Guardians Of The Galaxy Vol. 3’

Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 Marvel Studios Taika Waititi James Gunn Sean Gunn

James Gunn may no longer be involved with the third Guardians of the Galaxy film, but Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige is confident that the film will come together when it’s time.

On the red carpet at the Golden Globes last night, Kevin Feige was asked a series of questions, most of which revolve around his work at Marvel Studios. The final question dealt with James Gunn’s move to the DC Extended Universe with Suicide Squad 2 and what this could possibly mean for the third Guardians of the Galaxy film. But Feige maintained that the third installment in the Guardians of the Galaxy saga will come when it’s time. When that time is, that remains to be seen:

“I see cool films being made and one thing you know about James Gunn — he makes cool films. Guardians will happen. When, where, how, for a later time.”

Here, have a look at Feige discussing the third Guardians film in the video below at the 3:48 mark.

Okay, okay, I get it. That’s more of a non-answer than anything. After all, given how James Gunn was originally going to craft out the cosmic side of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, it remains to be seen what will happen there. It’s entirely possible that the likes of Captain Marvel and the upcoming Eternals film could build out that world. Coupled with what intergalactic characters could come from the Fox/Marvel side and the cosmic side could be fine for the moment, but the Guardians of the Galaxy do remain in a sort of limbo at the moment.

Still, there are some who would like to see James Gunn return to the Guardians of the Galaxy films, if the hashtag #RehireJamesGunn is any indication. Where do you stand, though? When do you believe the third Guardians of the Galaxy film will ultimately happen? Who do you think will be in the director’s chair? Do you hope to see Gunn return in some capacity? Let us know in the comments below.

In the meantime, look forward to seeing the Guardians of the Galaxy make their comeback in Avengers: Endgame, which hits theaters on April 26, 2019.

What We Learned About ‘Spider-Man: Far From Home’ At CCXP

Sony Pictures and Marvel Studios shared some brand new information on their highly-anticipated sequel, Spider-Man: Far From Home. The film, which is the follow-up to 2017’s Spider-Man: Homecoming marks the return of Tom Holland as Peter Parker following the release of Avengers: Endgame and will also feature the cinematic debut of Mysterio, who is portrayed by Academy Award-nominee Jake Gyllenhaal.

Here are some of the things we have learned about Spider-Man: Far From Home following its presentation at the 2018 Comic Con Experience (CCXP) in Brazil. Click “Next” to find out.

1. Peter Parker & Michelle Will Be Involved Romantically

In Spider-Man: Homecoming, we saw Peter crushing on Liz Allan (Laura Harrier), who has since moved away from Queens, New York with her mother following the fallout of her father Adrian Toomes’ (Michael Keaton) crimes as the Vulture. With Liz now out of the picture, we have Michelle Jones (Zendaya) also known as “MJ” that Peter has his eyes on. In Homecoming, Michelle seemed to tow the line between cold and friendly to Peter, with hints that she was romantically interested in him the whole time.

Now, it looks like Peter and Michelle have since grown closer with one another following the events of Homecoming. Perhaps their romantic connection will play a significant role in Peter’s motivations in Far From Home. 

2. Aunt May Supports Her Nephew As Spider-Man In Far From Home

Aunt May (Marisa Tomei) found out about her beloved nephew Peter’s secret at the end of Homecoming. Now that she’s aware that he continues his hero work as our Friendly Neighborhood Spider-Man, she is also fully-supportive of him despite the fact that he continues to put himself in danger.

3. Happy Hogan & Aunt May Share A Romantic AffairSpider-Man Far From Home Happy Hogan Aunt May

This one comes as a bit of a surprise. Based off of information from CCXP, it appears that Aunt May is romantically involved with none other than Happy Hogan (Jon Favreau). This certainly won’t be awkward for Peter.

4. Spider-Man & Mysterio Start Are Brought Together By Nick Fury

The narrative for Far From Home will begin with Nick Fury (Samuel L. Jackson) bringing Spider-Man and Quentin Blake/Mysterio together for a mission in which they must hunt down the Elementals. Mysterio has some knowledge about the Elementals and wants to defeat them to make the world safer.

The unlikely duo has been described to have a “brothers in arms” dynamic. What could possibly go wrong?

5. Spider-Man & Mysterio’s Relationship Is The Central Focus

During the presentation at CCXP, Gyllenhaal revealed that Far From Home will be a unique Spider-Man film due to the relationship between the beloved hero and Mysterio:

“The central point of the film is the relationship of Peter with Mysterio, which is a completely new dynamic. Tom Holland is the best Spider-Man. There’s no one more professional than him.”

Seeing Holland and Gyllenhaal acting alongside eachother will certainly be a highlight.
