Guardians of the Galaxy features Gamora, Groot, Rocket, Quill, and Drax going on life-threatening adventures to save the galaxy. In volume one, this group of five powerful heroes embarked on a quest to save the Power Stone containing Orb from Ronan, an evil Kree warlord. Volume 2 dealt with Quill meeting his father, Ego, who turns out to be an evil monster. With the help of his four best friends, Quill can destroy his father. This second volume was hefty on our hearts. It took us through a rollercoaster of emotions as we watched Quill struggle to accept his father’s nature. Gamora trying to reconcile with her sister after she tries to kill her, and Gamora and Quill falling in love. The story of these five heroes doesn’t end here and will continue in Guardians of the Galaxy Volume 3.
Which has already been confirmed for production. You can find out all about this exciting new volume, including its release date, plot, and cast down below.
Guardians of the Galaxy Volume 3 Release Date
Volume one made its debut in 2014, and the second volume followed suit in 2017. Volume 3 of the movie series is set to premiere on May 5, 2023, and will be a part of Marvel’s Phase 4. Initially, they predicted the movie to release in late 2022, but because of the producer’s other productions, including the Suicide Squad and Peacemaker, the date has been pushed to spring of 2023. Further delays were caused as James Gunn, the writer, was fired and rehired as some of his old tweets resurfaced and created quite a scandal.
Although 2023 is pretty far, fans should keep their spirits high as another guardian of the Galaxy movie (the Holiday Special) will be coming to their screens soon to reunite them with their favorite Marvel heroes.
