Guardians of the Galaxy 2 hasn't finished filming but Marvel has already asked James Gunn to do the sequel

'I’m not sure if that’s what I want to do or if that’s not what I want to do'

Although Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 may not have finished filming - let alone reached cinemas - that hasn’t stopped Marvel banking on it being a monumental success. So much so, that they’ve already started inquiring into a sequel.

In a Q&A session on his Facebook page, writer/director James Gunn was asked about the possibility of him working on another sequel to the Chris Pratt starring sci-fi saga.

“Right now I really am just concerned with doing Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2”, he said. “I’m not sure what I’m going to do after this… Marvel has talked to me about continuing on.

“I’m not sure if that’s what I want to do or if that’s not what I want to do. I really just want to make Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 the greatest possible movie that I can, and something that’s as honest and sincere and true as it can possibly be”.

As noted by Den of Geek, no single director has completed a trilogy of Marvel films, with Jon Favreau and Joss Whedon coming close with Iron Man and Avengers, respectively.

Meanwhile, the Russo Brothers will have directed four Marvel films by the completion of Avengers: Infinity War Part 2.

There is currently no release date for Vol. 3, but if the movie does come to be then we can likely expect it to fill one of the as-yet unannounced 2020 slots Marvel has slated for release.
