James Gunn Will Write and Direct the Third ‘Guardians of the Galaxy’ Movie

James Gunn is ramping up to do press for Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 which comes out in just under three weeks. The writer and director took to Facebook earlier today to talk about it, along with some of the questions he expects to get a lot during the barrage of press junkets and interviews he’s about to engage in.

In that post, embedded above, Gunn answers a question most of us didn’t expect to get an answer to for quite some time: whether or not he would return to write and direct for the franchise’s third installment.

The answer is, of course, yes.

This is welcome news for Guardians of the Galaxy fans, as Gunn has taken what was a C-list set of Marvel comics characters and turned it into one of the biggest titles in the MCU’s lineup. Frankly, the first film was a fairly amazing space opera on its own, and to characterize it as a superhero film would be to misunderstand what makes it a great movie.

So yeah, I’m excited.

Trae is the tallest of the hosts, and he is certain it’s because he is the oldest. This is (at the very least) why he is the baldest. Trae co-founded Wisconsin’s longest running Anime convention No Brand Con and refuses to apologize for it... which he probably should. Trae also writes the webcomics UnCONventional and The Chronicles of Crosarth, which leads many to ask when the hell he has time to actually do anything anymore. He says he has time because he “does it all quite poorly.”
