Just in case you were worried that Marvel didn’t have enough upcoming films, we now know Guardians Of The Galaxy Vol. 3 will be released in two years time.
And we heard it directly from director James Gunn, who announced on Twitter that Star-Lord, Gamora, Groot and co would return for a solo adventure in 2020.
- Karen Gillan, Zoe Saldana and Chris Pratt boogie to David Hasselhoff’s Guardians of the Galaxy vol. 2 end credits music video
- The Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 gag reel is just as hilarious as you’d expect
Coming in 2020. https://t.co/2kQbPHC5gP— James Gunn (@JamesGunn) January 14, 2018
Gunn also answered a few fan questions while making the announcement. For instance, when a user questioned if favourite Yondu (“I’m Mary Poppins, y’all”) could return, he gave a solid no.
Can Yondu be brought back from the dead for the next Guardians?

SPOILER. He will never be brought back to life as long as I’m around. His passing needs to mean something. https://t.co/D5H58Twjwi— James Gunn (@JamesGunn) January 14, 2018
Gunn also revealed that the soundtrack for the film – always an important aspect for Guardians – had already been selected.
The music is pretty much all done and picked out. https://t.co/VXuF2FCxDl— James Gunn (@JamesGunn) January 14, 2018
And then Star-Lord himself Chris Pratt Tweeted his own very important question to Gunn about the nature of the villain in volume three…
@JamesGunn What up wit snakes?— chris pratt (@prattprattpratt) January 14, 2018
Stop avoiding the question @jamesgunn. What is your official position on snakes and what up wit’ em’?— chris pratt (@prattprattpratt) January 14, 2018
@jamesgunn I noticed you haven’t answered me. Let me be more specific. Can the villain in volume 3 be a guy who has a cardboard box full of snakes, yes or no? If no. Then how bout just a handful of snakes and he says, what up wit snakes? And then throws the snakes at us?— chris pratt (@prattprattpratt) January 14, 2018
…To which Gunn gave a very important answer…
SPOILERS, DUDE. You can’t just go tweeting off pages from the treatment. https://t.co/jUZw5oelTg— James Gunn (@JamesGunn) January 14, 2018
So there you have it: Guardians of the Galaxy 3 will definitely 100% completely-not-joking-at-all feature a box of snakes. And Twitter couldn’t be happier about it.
I volunteer to play this snake wielding villain. I live in Georgia so I'd be close to filming. I have ZERO acting experience. But I can hold a cardboard box like nobody's business. So what could go wrong right? Think about it. Drop me that DM— Paul R0K (@R0KL0bStEr) January 14, 2018
Guardians of the Galaxy vol 3 will be released (with snakes or not) 2020
