James Gunn: Will not begin Guardians Of The Galaxy Vol 3 before completion of Suicide Squad
The filmmaker confirmed this in response to a fan's comment on Instagram
Production of the third instalment of Guardians Of The Galaxy will not start anytime soon – not until its director, James Gunn, is done with his other superhero project, Suicide Squad. Gunn recently confirmed to a fan that he will not begin work on the Marvel franchise until his current movie for DC and Warner Bros has been filmed and edited.
"You are correct," Gunn told a fan responding to an Instagram comment. "I won't start Vol 3 until after Squad is finished editing, not filming."
Filming for Suicide Squad began earlier this month. The cast of the film includes SNL’s Pete Davidson, Idris Elba and former Doctor Who-star Peter Capaldi. Margot Robbie and Jai Courtney, who previously appeared as Harley Quinn and Captain Boomerang, respectively, in David Ayer’s 2016 supervillain movie, will reprise their roles in Gunn’s reboot. Other previous cast members on board for Gunn’s film include Viola Davis and Joel Kinnaman.
