James Gunn has always been known for never hiding anything from fans. In fact, whenever he can, the director of Suicide Squad and Guardians of the Galaxy uses his social networks for us to ask questions and reveal some vital information. The most recent concerns are in the Marvel space franchise, which is scheduled to release its third movie in 2023. Gunn recently revealed that he consults NASA scientists on all Guardians of the Galaxy films.
This week, much of the conversation around Gunn will be about his first DC movie, The Suicide Squad, which is released in theaters everywhere. At the same time, many of his fans will be looking to the future, when he will stand behind the cameras of Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3, the third chapter of the story that began with the first movie’s release in 2014.
Gunn has already been hyping up the release of the threequel by saying that it is “huge” in terms of the worlds that will be seen, while he has also confirmed that the soundtrack is done and the script has been finished.
First MCU Director To Have Trilogy
James Gunn will become first director at Marvel Cinematic Universe to lead the entire trilogy of the same hero or group. The third film will also be his farewell, with Gunn revealing in more than one opportunity that he won’t be back in theaters for a while.
Little is known about the film Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. Filming will begin in November this year, The shoot will also include filming for the upcoming Holiday Special for the Disney+ streaming platform. Which is set between Thor: Love and Thunder and will feature all of the Guardians, and the third movie. While the film will arrive in May 2023, with Holiday Special to release in December 2022.
While the story remains a mystery, those involved in the project said Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 made them cry, literally. There were even those who recommended the public to take some tissues to the cinema as the rumors say we will be seeing Drax and Rocket last time in this film and you can imagine why.
James Gunn Takes Advice From NASA Experts for Guardians Film
Gunn recently used his social media to answer some fan questions about his various projects and took the opportunity to share a rather exciting detail about the Guardians franchise. When asked if he ever consulted experts for his films, Gunn revealed that he always spoke with NASA scientists before making every Guardian release.
“ I have very long conversations with NASA scientists before every Guardians film, after they read the scripts. They are science fantasy more than science fiction, but I still like them grounded as much as possible in real science,” he explained.
NASA experts have often been consulted about films, a recent example being the ninth film in the Fast and Furious franchise. In this case, director Justin Lin wanted to know how realistic the movie’s space car was. Of course, the franchise is already partially based on the real world, unlike Guardians of the Galaxy, which takes place almost entirely in space.
Gunn’s dedication to keeping things as realistic as possible is admirable, although one must wonder what NASA scientists had to say about Gunn’s ideas. Did they already make suggestions for characters, ships, and planets in Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3?
