James Gunn, the celebrated filmmaker behind the Guardians of the Galaxy franchise, has expressed his satisfaction with the upcoming third and final installment in the series. Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 is set to be the longest chapter yet in this beloved cosmic superhero saga, and fans are eagerly anticipating its May release.
As the second MCU movie of the year, Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 will be a crucial part of Phase 5 of the Marvel franchise. It builds on the momentum of previous films and sets the stage for what promises to be an exciting future for the beloved superhero universe.
The Guardians of the Galaxy franchise has been a major success for Marvel, winning fans over with its irreverent humor, fast-paced action, and memorable characters. With James Gunn at the helm, fans can rest assured that the final chapter of this epic saga will be a fitting end to an unforgettable journey.
Director James Gunn has confirmed the runtime for the upcoming “Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3” and assures fans that every minute of the film will be worth it. It was reported that the third installment of the “Guardians” franchise would be the longest yet, clocking in at 2 hours and 29 minutes. Now, James Gunn has confirmed the speculation, stating that while the exact runtime is not yet final, it will be around that long.
James Gunn also emphasized that the length was necessary to fully explore the story arcs of each major character in the film, as well as to lay the foundation for the entire trilogy. He stated, “There’s no fat. It was necessary to experience the full arc for every major Guardians character, not only for this film but for the trilogy, or, I should say, trilogy plus.”
Fans of the franchise can rest assured that the extended runtime is not just for the sake of it. James Gunn is known for his careful attention to detail and storytelling, so viewers can expect an epic conclusion to the beloved trilogy when “Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3” hits theatres.
