According to director James Gunn, the recordings are almost complete Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3. The long-awaited third chapter in Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy franchise is coming out in 2023, where Gunn announces that one of the many remarkable things about the film is that it broke the world record for “most makeup devices created for a single production”, a record previously held by Grinchen. Gunn together with Guardians of the Galaxy 3 cast, has kept fans updated on the production through their social media accounts. The latest news reveals exactly how many days are left for the recordings.
Earlier today, James Gunn shared a recurring 2016 photo of his mother with actress Laura Haddock, who played Peter Quill’s mother in the first Guardians of the Galaxy movie. Gunn’s mother was the inspiration behind Meredith Quill. One of the comments on the Instagram post asked if Gunn had a role planned for Nathan Fillon Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3. Gunn responded by saying, “If I did, it would be far beyond planned as we only have 8 more days to shoot.” A screenshot of the comment is below.
“On this day in 2016, @laurajhaddock, who plays Meredith Quill, met the inspiration for her character, my mother, while Grandpa Quill (Gregg Henry) and I ponder a @nathanfillion / Simon Williams starring Tony Stark. # GotGVol2 #GuardiansoftheGalaxy “Gunn wrote on Instagram. The second image showed Gunn and actor Gregg Henry posing in front of a Nathan Fillon poster for a Tony Stark biography in the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
“Honesty, they are amazing, I love this cast and crew,” Gunn recently wrote on Twitter when asked about it Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3. “But there is also a lot of sadness and almost daily tears in knowing that this is the last Guardians movie for most of us.” The director also responded to a fan who said this does not have to be the last Guardians of the Galaxy movie. Gunn added, “It does with this cast.”
New additions to Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 includes Will Poulter as Adam Warlock and Peacemaker star Chukwudi Iwuji, whose role has yet to be revealed. Fans have speculated that Iwuji could portray Marvel villain The High Evolutionary.
“The production is so great. James and I, we continue where we left off,” Iwuji teased Variety about his mysterious character. “[The character] is very different from Murn. It requires other things from me. The way James works with me is pretty much the same, which is that he trusts my choices – but at the same time, when I give him a choice, he’s ready to push it forward. He makes me push myself. This character needs an extremism that I did not really need to exploit Founder of Peace which I turn to here. Our relationship remains the same, one of enjoyment, mutual love and trust. “
“It’s very different. Murn is a very introverted guy with outbursts of anger and emotion. What I’m dealing with is a completely different guy who, let’s just say, is the extreme opposite of Murn in many ways, the actor added. “It’s a different kind of world and universe.”
Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 is set to hit theaters on May 5, 2023.
