It looks like things will remain consisted in the universe. James Gunn announced on Facebook today that he’s returning to write and direct Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3.
The news comes just weeks ahead of the release of Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 which scored an extremely rare 100% in a test screening back in February and is projected to open to as much as $150 million at the domestic box office.
Here is the quote from his Facebook page:
“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.”
You can head to James Gunn’s official Facebook page to read his full message but it’s clear he’s passionate about these film so it’s nice that he’s staying on board.
