Guardians Of The Galaxy Vol. 3 Has Delayed Production

Guardians Of The Galaxy Vol. 3 Has Delayed Production

This probably won't come as too much of a surprise given the firing of writer-director James Gunn, but THR is reporting that Marvel Studios has officially put Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 on hold. THR reports that Marvel and Disney have chose to pause plans for production while they sort out what to do about a new director.

Gunn had written and directed the first two films, which were box office successes. Some of these questions have been answered, but with production scheduled to begin this winter, it was clear that things had to get sorted out sooner rather than later.

The trade reports that Disney has dismissed the crew members which had assembled for pre-production to seek other work. The cast, meanwhile, of "Guardians of the Galaxy" have been making their feelings known on Disney's firing, with Dave Bautista repeatedly putting the House of Mouse on blast via Twitter whenever he can.

The Hollywood Reporters quoted their source who said: "The timeline has been pushed out". The project was to have gone into full pre-production mode this year.

The film was expected to go into production at the start of 2019, but the project has never been dated for a release.

Just yesterday, Bautista retweeted a post that highlighted the vicious tactics used by far-right agitator Mike Cernovich, who was one of the ringleaders in the campaign to have Gunn fired. There were even rumblings that even Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige was lobbying Horn to re-hire Gunn, but it's now become clear that Guardians of the Galaxy 3 will be moving forward without the franchise's creator at the helm.
