In my recent article about the next Thor film about Batman Actor Christian Bale Playing A Villain Role in Thor: Love And Thunder, I have mentioned regarding the foundation the movie will lay for Guardians Of The Galaxy Vol. 3 and to my guess, it’s true. Thor 4 will include a few Guardians and this is no surprise. Avengers: Endgame spoke about Asgardians of the Galaxy and Thor joining Star-Lord’s crew to search for 2014’s Gamora.
Earlier plans were different for the future of MCU. After Endgame, the production of Guardians Of The Galaxy Vol. 3 should have begun. But the director of Guardians Of The Galaxy franchise, James Gunn was fired by Disney due to inappropriate tweets. He then became the director of The Suicide Squad 2 and began its shoot. When Disney reemployed Gunn, GOTG 3 had to be delayed. This meant Thor 4 will include Guardians.
The actor who voices Groot, Vin Diesel said in an interview will promoting his next release Bloodshot:
I am waiting and excited for my friend James Gunn to knock this next one out of the park. He took The Suicide Squad so he’s about to embark on it. Thor will also, the director talked to me about Thor will incorporate some of the Guardians of the Galaxy. That’ll be very interesting, nobody knows, maybe I shouldn’t have said anything.
The lucky one here is, of course, James Gunn who got to be a part of both DCEU and MCU. He is an amazing director who made wonders with GOTG franchise and his upcoming The Suicide Squad is hyped which includes a huge star cast. After receiving mixed reviews for the first Suicide Squad movie, DC Films had to bring in something different and epic. James Gunn might be the right choice for them.
Vin Diesel’s Bloodshot is releasing on March 13, 2020. Thor: Love and Thunder is dated to hit the theatres on 5 November 2021 and Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 might come out around 2022.
