In a new interview, James Gunn seemed to confirm once and for all that Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 will be his final time at the helm of the series. He does however remain much more open to the idea of one day tackling another property for Kevin Feige’s outfit.
“The last Marvel project? Who knows, but I see it as my last Guardians movie. I’m a guy who never says never because I’ve seen too many people say ‘never’ and be pulled back into the fray, so I wouldn’t say that. But I see it as being my last Guardians movie. I know Dave sees it as being his last Guardians movie, and Dave and I are pretty much attached to the hip on those projects. So I don’t see me going on and doing any more after that.”
Although Gunn revealed a while ago he wasn’t planning on any more MCU adventures following the release of Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 in May 2023, it seems that he could be interested in another project in the future.
