Guardians of the Galaxy 3 release date: When is Guardians of the Galaxy Vol 3 released?

It was finally confirmed by Marvel that Guardians of the Galaxy Vol 3 will be released on May 5, 2023, so you can now officially start your countdown.

In October 2021, Disney shuffled the release dates of every upcoming Phase 4 movie, but the threequel stayed exactly where it is. Hopefully, that remains the case & we"ll see it in cinemas in May 2023.

Before that, we"ll get a Holiday Special on Disney+ in December 2022 which is apparently going lớn introduce "one of the greatest MCU characters of all time", according to Gunn. It"s being filmed at the same time as the third movie.

As mentioned above, filming is underway on the third movie và is set khổng lồ continue until around April 2022.

Guardians of the Galaxy 3 cast: Who"s back in Guardians of the Galaxy Vol 3?

We"ll see Chris Pratt return as Star-Lord, Dave Bautista as Drax, Karen Gillan as Nebula, Bradley Cooper as Rocket, Vin Diesel as Groot & Pom Klementieff as Mantis. After the events of Avengers: Endgame, we"ll also be seeing Zoe Saldana as Gamora again.

We thought Gamora had been killed off in Avengers: Infinity War, but Endgame introduced a Gamora from a past timeline in 2014, who was brought forward to 2023 và went missing after Tony Stark saved the day.

Saldana has said she"d want to "explore a bad Gamora" in the third Guardians movie, and we"d totally be up for that.

We"ll be seeing the Guardians back on screen before the third movie, as they"re popping up in Thor: Love & Thunder. It"s unclear if this means we"ll also be seeing Chris Hemsworth as Thor in the third Guardians movie, though.

Gunn has confirmed that Guardians 3 takes place after the new Thor movie, so that might rule out a Thor crossover.

Sean Gunn will apparently be back as Kraglin, Yondu"s one-time Ravager pal, and Elizabeth Debicki could also return as Ayesha, with the star up for a return. "I would love, even if I just sort of scooch on for a second. I mean, I would love to lớn come back," she said.

Sylvester Stallone"s Stakar is back as well, so that could signal a return for his fellow Ravagers: Aleta Ogord (Michelle Yeoh), Charlie-27 (Ving Rhames), Mainframe (voiced by Miley Cyrus) và Martinex (Michael Rosenbaum) in the MCU"s future.

A most exciting addition to the cast is Will Poulter who has been confirmed khổng lồ appear as Adam Warlock, who has been rumoured khổng lồ appear in the MCU ever since he was teased in one of Guardians Vol 2"s credits scenes.

"I feel very, very lucky and honoured lớn have been welcomed into the Marvel family," said Poulter of his casting.

"Particularly in a franchise like Guardians of the Galaxy, which I regard khổng lồ be incredibly creative và very, very unique. James Gunn is someone I really, really admire so I feel very lucky."

Also joining is Peacemaker star Chukwudi Iwuji. Gunn revealed that he "is one of the main characters in the movie & people are freaking out over how good this guy is. Literally freaking out."

One person we definitely won"t be seeing (unless it"s in flashbacks) is Michael Rooker as Yondu, who sacrificed himself lớn save Star-Lord in the second movie.

"As I"ve said before, Yondu is dead & will stay dead as long as I"m involved with the Guardians," Gunn tweeted. "His death means something lớn people & I"m not about to diminish that."

Guardians of the Galaxy 3 plot: What will Guardians of the Galaxy Vol 3 be about?

Specific plot details for the third movie are under wraps for now, but Gunn has promised that it"ll serve as the "epic conclusion" lớn the story he began in 2014"s Guardians of the Galaxy.

The film is set to lớn bring an over to this current version of the team on screen, with Bautista ruling out a future movie as Drax. "I mean, as far as my obligations, I"ve got Guardians 3, and that"s probably going khổng lồ be the kết thúc of Drax," he told Digital Spy.

Bautista added that another actor could well play Drax instead in future outings, but for Gunn, Bautista is Drax & nobody else can be.


After Endgame, it looks like the third movie will revolve around the search for Gamora as she disappeared after the big battle with Thanos.

Gunn has noted that if he didn"t get to vày the third movie, he would have been most disappointed at not finishing Rocket"s arc. So expect more from Rocket in the third movie, maybe even his full backstory.

He"s also been teasing that the third movie is "pretty heavy actually", adding: "It"s a heavier story, so it"s an emotional process to lớn go through".

It"s something that Karen Gillan backed up as she said that when she read the script with Pom Klementieff, there were "full tears". "It"s brilliant & it"s emotional và it"s funny and it"s all of those things that you want," she enthused.

Let"s hope the tears aren"t because some of our favourite Guardians are about khổng lồ die...
