With Guardians Of The Galaxy Vol. 2 about to hit big screens, we have some more great news for all Guardians’ fans around the globe.

If there ever were any doubts about whether the franchise’s director James Gunn will be on board for the 3rd installment of Guardians Of The Galaxy, now all those doubts have been shattered, luckily.

Namely, the chatty filmmaker took to Facebook on Monday to announce that he will indeed be the main man behind the camera for the next Guardians Of The Galaxy film.

Fans Are The Most Important People In The Guardiansverse

Writer and director James Gunn decided to go straight to his and the Guardians Of The Galaxy fan-base with this exciting piece of news, stating that the fans are the ones that matter the most to him.

“After many months of ruminations and discussions, I know the answer,” wrote Gunn. “I could save this answer for the first, random interviewer to ask me during the press junket but instead I thought I’d share it with the most important people in the Guardiansverse – you, the fans, who have been so incredibly supportive and enthusiastic over the past five years, it has moved me to tears on a regular basis.”

“So, yes, I’m returning to write and direct Guardians Of The Galaxy Vol. 3,” the director continued.

“In the end, my love for Rocket, Groot, Gamora, Star-Lord, Yondu, Mantis, Drax, and Nebula – and some of the other forthcoming heroes – goes deeper than you guys can possibly imagine, and I feel they have more adventures to go on and things to learn about themselves and the wonderful and sometimes terrifying universe we all inhabit. And, like in both Vol. 1 and Vol. 2, we will work on creating the story that goes beyond what you expect. I can’t fricking wait to get started.”

It is always so nice to see a movie director this fired up about his or her project. Way to go, James! Now that we know for sure that he will be back in the director’s chair, the next question is:

When Will This Take Place?

The folks over at Empire claim that, if Gunn stays consistent with the gaps between his movies, we shouldn’t expect Vol. 3 much before 2020.

But the hype for Guardians Of The Galaxy Vol. 2 release date is still very much real, though! The movie hits theaters on May the 5th.
