Guardians of the Galaxy director James Gunn says that the rumor about a casting call circulating around the web is a scam. The team has wrapped up its filming, which includes the original cast Chris Pratt, Karen Gillan, Dave Bautista, Bradley Cooper, Vin Diesel, and Pom Klementieff. Zoe Saldana will return to the scene despite her character’s demise in Avengers: Endgame.
Guardians Of The Galaxy Vol. 3 All Wrapped Up
The third volume of the Guardians of the Galaxy will introduce a new cast, including Will Poulter as Adam Warlock, which was featured back in 2017 in the second installment.
The filming was fortunate enough to have not been interrupted by the pandemic. The production started in late 2021, and earlier this month, the director confirmed that they had finished filming. This will be Gunn’s last work on the franchise and his final collaboration with Marvel.
Gunn Debunks Fake Casting Call
A rumor spreading across the Internet of a casting call alerted Gunn and debunked the idea saying it was a hoax. In a tweet, Gunn said, “It is definitely a scam. We finished shooting almost a month ago.” The fake job announcement told fans that they could apply as a non-speaking extra in the movie. The casting call was advertised online, but many were skeptical about it.
Gunn’s other project, Guardians of the Galaxy Holiday Special, has also finished filming. “The GotG Holiday Special has been done filming longer than Vol 3,” Gunn confirmed in another tweet. The director is very active on social media, and he interacts with fans, so it is very likely that this rumor will eventually reach his radar.
It would have been a great opportunity to join the team and be part of the movie, but fans need to be wary regarding these fake casting calls posted on the Internet. Gunn’s confirmation definitely saved a lot of people from getting scammed.
