Guardians Of The Galaxy Vol. 3 Will Happen

In the interview, Gunn makes a soft announcement of a being made. However, what he isn't certain of is whether or not he'll return to direct the third installment. Here's what Gunn had to say about it:

"There will be a Guardians 3, that’s for sure."

"We’re trying to figure it out. I’m trying to figure out what I want to do really, that’s all it is. I got to figure out where I want to be, what I want to spend the next three years of my life doing. You know, I’m going to make another big movie; is it the Guardians or something else? I’m just going to figure it out over the next couple of weeks."

While Gunn's comments do confirm a third Guardians film being made, there is no indication of when that might happen. currently has a number of movies lined up until 2020 so it would most likely be another three years before Guardians Of The Galaxy Vol. 3 could have an expected release date.

Most people assume the MCU would return its focus to more earthbound conflicts after the but it looks like there'll be more exploration of space in GOTG3. Their next adventure may open up even more cosmic pieces of the Marvel universe, all of which seem to tie in to Adam Warlock.

Warlock hasn't been confirmed for a spot in the MCU but he may show up at some point with more cosmic adventures being at hand. He's been known to travel the expanse of the Marvel universe so it shouldn't be a surprise to see Warlock show up in GOTG3, if not earlier—perhaps even ?
