Yesterday, Marvel announced that they had delayed the theatrical release dates for several upcoming films, including “Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness,” “Thor: Love and Thunder,” “Black Panther: Wakanda Forever” and more. One of the films that was not mentioned was “Guardians of the Galaxy 3′ which left fans wondering if the beloved franchise would see a delay for its third installment.
James Gunn, who is the director of Guardians 3, took to Twitter to ease everyone’s minds and even teased that principal photography was beginning soon on the film. You can read that tweet below:
