A list of trivia of Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3.
- On April 2017, James Gunn confirmed that he would be back to write and direct the third movie of the Guardians of the Galaxy installment. James Gunn stated that he took a lot of time to decide to be back for the movie because of the fear of the "third-movie curse": So, after many months of ruminations and discussions, I know the answer. I could save this answer for the first, random interviewer to ask me during the press junket but instead I thought I’d share it with the most important people in the Guardiansverse – you, the fans, who have been so incredibly supportive and enthusiastic over the past five years, it has moved me to tears on a regular basis. So, yes, I’m returning to write and direct Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3. In the end, my love for Rocket, Groot, Gamora, Star-Lord, Yondu, Mantis, Drax, and Nebula – and some of the other forthcoming heroes – goes deeper than you guys can possibly imagine, and I feel they have more adventures to go on and things to learn about themselves and the wonderful and sometimes terrifying universe we all inhabit. And, like in both Vol. 1 and Vol. 2, we will work on creating the story that goes beyond what you expect.. Gunn also said that he was reluctant on directing a movie without his friend Michael Rooker, who portrayed Yondu Udonta, after his character died Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2.
- On July 12, 2017, James Gunn completed the first draft of the script.
