First there was guardians of the galaxy. And came Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2followed by — you guessed it — Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3. What will Marvel bigwigs be thinking next? Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 4?
Director and writer James Gunn wants to clarify that the Guardians trilogy will remain only that: a trilogy. In response to a Twitter follower asking, “Will there be Volume 4?” Gunn replied, “No.” When another user asked, “Soooo… GOTG vol 4 in the future?” Gunn gave the same answer.
Hmm, I don’t know if I’m convinced yet. Is there, say, an interview with Esquire Middle East where Gunn explicitly closes the possibility of Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 4? (There are.) “I don’t think there will ever be one Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 4. There are several reasons why this group will not return. There could be more Guardians movies, but it won’t be with this band,” he said. Could another director take over with the same characters? “I think as long as someone gets in there and doesn’t just try to copy that style, I think it can be really amazing,” Gunn said. “And there are so many directors that I would love to do that. And I would like that to happen.
THE Flight. 3 post-credits scene is one way to do it.
