James Gunn Updates On GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY VOL. 3 And The Possibility Of Fox Characters Being Included

Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 director James Gunn reveals how work is going on the threequel and reveals whether or not he's planning to include any of the Fox owned Marvel characters due to that merger.

Marvel Studios may be holding off on revealing what's happening with its Phase 4 slate but we know that Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 is in the works and James Gunn is currently hard at work on the screenplay. During a recent Facebook Q&A, the filmmaker confirmed that he's actually pretty far along in developing the script and seemingly right on track for that long rumoured 2020 release date.

"I'm more than a year into the process, so the script is far along," he reveals. "For many many
months I first write the treatment which is 80 pages or so with photographs. That turns into GotG - I'm now rewriting and making sure my rough draft works." Gunn was then quizzed on whether or not that impending Disney/Fox merger is going to change how he approaches the story as it could add some new characters to the franchise. "Not gonna happen in any major way. Too far along."
 
Gunn went on to confirm that he's started narrowing down the soundtrack and promised that we'll see some major changes when the team returns (whether or not those are a result of what happened in Avengers: Infinity War remains to be seen. "It's very, very, very different," he confessed. "Very different, but I won't say how! You'll have to wait to see the movie, it's a long time away."
