In an interview, James Gunn spoke about the status of Guardians of the Galaxy 3 and the Disney+ Christmas special.
After the first indications of a creeping fatigue (box earnings of “Black Widow”, fan reviews on “Eternals”), the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU) has reported back more than impressively with “Spider-Man: No Way Home” in the blockbuster business . An unbelievable 1.53 billion dollars in global revenues show that not even the Corona variant Omikron can do anything to the cooperation between Sony Pictures and Marvel Studios.
The fire of the fans for the MCU is fully reignited – and the next superhero films are already in the starting blocks to help cinemas finally make a comeback in 2022. However, fans will have to be patient until the beloved Guardians of the Galaxy return, the third part of the fun space saga will only start in Germany on 3. May 2023 in the cinemas. Filming began last November in Atlanta, Georgia, under director and screenwriter James Gunn. In addition to the return of the stars Chris Pratt, Zoe Saldana, Dave Bautista, Karen Gillan, Pom Klementieff as well as Elizabeth Debicki and Sylvester Stallone, there are also completely new faces in the game. Very prominent: Will Poulter as Adam Warlock.

Gunn is particularly excited about newcomer Chukwudi Iwuji, who also stars in his DC series Peacemaker. In an interview with Collider Gunn praises him beyond measure:
“Chukwudi, who plays Murn in ‘Peacemaker,’ is one of the main characters in the film and people freak out because the guy is so good. They literally freak out. i think i’m really happy. I gave Marvel a bunch of scenes before the Christmas break. Kevin [Feige] said… They’re all really, really excited. […] It’s going to be very different than what people expect. It’s a rocky road, but I’m very happy so far.”
Those responsible for the development of the MCU should also be really happy. And if you should have lost the thread, we explain the Marvel Universe to you in the video.
Filming of the holiday special of Guardians of the Galaxy has not yet started
Gunn also revealed that filming of the Guardians of the Galaxy holiday special isn’t even underway, although the special is set to premiere on Disney+ in December 2022. According to Gunn, the approximately 40-minute short film is also not unimportant for “Guardians of the Galaxy 3”, which starts a few months later:
“The shooting is still going on. We should have shot in Los Angeles in one day and Omicron was too rampant so we couldn’t do it. We have to accommodate it somehow. I haven’t started yet. I look forward to it. It is fun. The holiday special is… I’m almost jealous of it even though I wrote it. Because people are freaking out about how much they love the script for the holiday special that I’m almost like, ‘Easy, easy! I have this film here that I’ve been working on for two years. You guys love the holiday special I wrote in a very short amount of time.’ But it’s really very funny and very good.”[display-posts orderby="rand"]
