Although “Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2” has just debut in cinemas all over the world, director James Gunn and Marvel Studios are already making plans for future sequels.
Gunn recently confirmed that he’ll be writing and directing “Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3” come Phase 4. He also added that the 3rd instalment will conclude the trilogy of the existing team of heroes and will make way for a different set of characters.
“I think the first 3 movies tell a single story and that story is pretty simple. I think that there could be a ‘Guardians Vol. 4’, but it would not be the same. It would not be the same group… basically the story of this group ends with ‘Vol. 3’,” the filmmaker told The Toronto Sun.
He added, “I will be helping to plant the seeds that will lead to the next decade. I’m helping to decide what projects we’ll be pursuing outside of ‘Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3’… and what the next cosmic characters we will focus on.”
While Gunn’s comments seemed to suggest that he won’t be directing anything past “Vol. 3”, he does share that he will continue to collaborate with Marvel behind the scenes to set up the next 10 years of films.
The post credit scenes in “Vol. 2” does features the original Guardians lineup from the comic books, which includes Stakar Ogord (played by Sylvester Stallone), Aleta Ogord (played by Michelle Yeoh), Charlie-27 (played by Ving Rhames), Krugarr, Mainframe (played by Miley Cyrus), and Martinex (played by Michael Rosenbaum).
Besides Adam Warlock, the new roster of characters could come from titles like “Infinity Watch”, “The Annihilators” or “Guardians of Knowhere”. Here are some solid options:
