GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY VOL. 3 Production Reportedly Delayed Until 2021; Working Title Revealed

We knew the third Guardians of the Galaxy movie had suffered some major setbacks after the firing of director James Gunn, but a new report indicates that the threequel may not begin shooting until 2021...

We recently found out that Marvel Studios had decided to put the third Guardians of the Galaxy movie on the back-burner for a while as the search for a replacement director for James Gunn got underway, but it looks like the threequel is going to be delayed for a lot longer than we anticipated.

According to Production Weekly, GOTG Vol. 3 is not scheduled to commence production until February 2021, which means the movie may not hit theaters until late 2022 at the earliest. In addition, the working title has been revealed as "Hot Christmas" which may suggest a festive setting.

As far as we know, Marvel stills intends to use Gunn's original script.

What do you guys make of this? We expected a delay, but did you imagine GOTG Vol. 3 would be shelved for this long? Drop us a comment down below.
