guardians of the galaxy cut joke

With Guardians of the Galaxy, Dave Bautista‘s Drax the Destroyer became one of the standout characters of the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Mean, menacing, but with a natural flair for comedy, Bautista made the instant leap from WWE star to rising Hollywood star, without having to suffer the indignity of making a few critical stinkers that many of his fellow pro wrestlers-turned-actors have had to do. But Bautista says it was that comedy talent that sunk Drax’s potential, leading Marvel Studios to “drop the ball” on the character’s backstory.

Even Dave Bautista is not sure, casting doubt over Drax’s future post-Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3.

Guardians of the Galaxy Holiday Special

Marvel Studios unleashed an insane number of announcements for new programming coming to Disney+ in the coming years, and that includes two new projects featuring the Guardians of the Galaxy.

Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 will be arriving in theaters in 2023, but before that, James Gunn is writing and directing The Guardians of the Galaxy Holiday Special, a live-action program that will be coming exclusively to Disney+.

Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 on hold

James Gunn recently confirmed that both The Suicide Squad and Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 were still on track to meet their intended release dates. Of course, there’s always the chance that might change since there’s a lot of time between now and when those movies will get released. Thankfully, The Suicide Squad is being worked on remotely in post-production, and Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 isn’t slated to start shooting for a long time. Even so, Gunn took the time to tease both movies by responding to some fan questions about the sequels over the weekend. Read More »

Guardians of the Galaxy 2

The soundtracks to the films in the Guardians of the Galaxy franchise are among the most beloved in recent memory. Featuring outstanding classics from the 1970s, they bring a unique vibe to the cosmic side of the Marvel Cinematic Universe. However, there’s at least one song that writer/director James Gunn won’t be including when the Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 soundtrack comes around, and it’s for one very good reason. Read More »

During Marvel Studios’ Comic-Con panel this past weekend, producer Kevin Feige confirmed that Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 is still happening, though it won’t be included in Phase 4 of the Marvel Cinematic Universe. But when Thor: Love and Thunder was announced on the Hall H stage, that left many fans wondering about the future of Thor.

At the end of Avengers: Endgame, Chris Hemsworth’s God of Thunder leaves New Asgard in Valkyrie’s capable hands and heads off with the Guardians for some space adventures (and presumably to find Gamora). But will Guardians Vol. 3 or Thor: Love and Thunder pick up that story?

Guardians Vol. 3 writer/director James Gunn is busy making The Suicide Squad over at WB/DC, but in a recent Instagram comment, he seemed to give an answer. See what he said below, and we’ll explore how either scenario could affect Thor’s potential storyline.
