Sylvester Stallone will reunite with writer/director James Gunn with Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3.
After a bizarre and tumultuous journey that included a brief firing, a stint with Warner Bros. and DC Films with The Suicide Squad and an eventual reinstatement, James Gunn is finally behind the camera directing the long-awaited Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3. Chris Pratt, Zoe Saldana and the rest of the surviving members of the previous film are back, and another actor is now confirmed to return: Sylvester Stallone.
