Third “Guardians” Director & Start Date Rumors

Third Guardians Director Start Date Rumors

Marvel Studios still have yet to pick someone to take over for James Gunn on a third “Guardians of the Galaxy” film, but a Twitter source named DanielRPK, known for bits of Marvel news reporting, indicates Marvel’s Kevin Feige and company eyeing a female filmmaker to direct.

It’s thought that Gunn’s screenplay will still be used but that’s not guaranteed at this point. The tweet, which has been picked up on numerous news sites, comes a day after Production Weekly updated their listing for the film, saying the working title during the shoot is “Hot Christmas” and filming won’t begin until February 2021.

Additionally Marvel has yanked a July 31st 2020 release date slot it had set aside for an unannounced film on the release calendar.
