James Gunn, director of the Guardians of the Galaxy franchise, has announced that the third installment, due in theaters in May 2023, will be the last film carried by this group of Guardians.

He adds: “The film is huge and dark, and different from what people might expect. I just want to be true to the characters, to the story, and to give viewers the conclusion they deserve.“
Whether these statements mean that the Guardians group of Star-Lord (Chris Pratt), Gamorra (Zoe Saldana), Drax (Dave Bautista), Nebula (Karen Gillan), Rocket (Bradley Cooper) and Groot (Vin Diesel) remains to be seen. ) will cease to exist, simply go their separate ways, be replaced by other Guardians, or if the movie will be the last installment in the franchise.

On the other hand, the film, which will mark Chris Pratt’s 6th appearance as Star Lord after Guardians of the Galaxy 1 & 2, Avengers: Infinity War, Endgame and Thor: Love and Thunder, is the latest film in the MCU listed on the American comedian’s contract.
