Guardians of the Galaxy 3, James Gunn: "Shooting it was torture, other than the Christmas special!"

The director of one of the most beloved Marvel Studios franchises, James Gunn, spoke about the differences between the Christmas special and the third chapter of Guardians of the Galaxy, on which he is still working.

It will arrive November 25 exclusively on Disney+ lo Christmas special of the Guardians of the Galaxy, a colorful starter in view of the third chapter and a project that will introduce the character of Kevin Bacon into the MCU.

In a recent interview with the microphones of The Hollywood Reporter, James Gunn spoke of differences between the special and Guardians of the Galaxy Vol.3 who defined a “torture” from the point of view of the realization: “I can tell it’s a great movie, and it’s so different from the special because the latter is so wacky and crazy. The movie is so emotional, but it was such a joy to make. It’s coming together well. I still have a ton of effects visuals I’m working on and of course putting together the soundtrack with John Murphy, which is gigantic. Those are the things I’ve been focusing on the most lately.”.

James Gunn then explained that he shot the Christmas special and Vol. 3 simultaneously for budget reasons: “The big benefit of the special was being able to introduce elements into the film that I don’t have to explain at the beginning of the film, like Cosmo the space dog [Maria Bakalova] or the fact that they live in the Head of Knowhere, their new residence, or the introduction of their spaceship, the Bowie, which, in real life, is a four story set. It’s the most amazing set I’ve ever been on, and so we were able to use those sets that we had the money to build for Vol. 3, in the special. Otherwise we wouldn’t have had that kind of money to build these million dollar sets.”.

After the theatrical release of Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3, set for May 2023, James Gunn will dedicate himself to his new role as co-CEO of DC Studios together with Peter Safran: the two have in mind a ten-year plan of interconnected stories between cinema, TV series, comics and video games.
