Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 by James Gunn is a much-awaited movie as it would show the lives of the Guardians of the Galaxy after their war with the Mad Titan Thanos and Thor joining them on their next adventure in Avengers: Endgame. The overall production of the Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 has taken longer than expected.
However, it seems like James Gunn has run into some trouble with the movie. Here are the details.
James Gunn caught up in a legal battle for the main song
Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 director James Gunn has said that he has been unable to acquire rights to a specific song in the Awesome Mix playlist from the upcoming movie. According to The Direct, when asked about whether he was denied the use of a certain song in any movie, Gunn said that it happened twice, one was for DC’s Peacemaker and the other is for Vol. 3. The filmmaker said that the song he is fixated on for Vol 3. was “in a legal battle over who owned it”. Quoting the filmmaker:
“I was denied use of 1 song for #Peacemaker (the band’s new lineup were bitter toward the previous lineup so wouldn’t okay an older tune) & 1 song I wanted for Vol 3 was in a legal battle over who owned it, so we didn’t even know who to negotiate with. Those are the only 2 times.”
The Much Awaited playlists from Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3
Guardians of the Galaxy films have become synonymous with their soundtracks since the start. It is not only because of its action and characters but also for its impeccable choice of soundtracks. They are smartly placed according to scenes. The man behind this art, James Gunn, has successfully made two mixes from the previous movies with pop and rock tracks from the yesteryear.
Creating modern space operas out of retro vibes has become a trademark for James Gunn. The sequels of the movie are named after the “Awesome Mix” cassette tapes that the protagonist Star-Lord listens to on his ship throughout the Marvel franchise.
However, there has been a recent update from James Gunn. It has been previously confirmed that Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 will not include any modern songs since Peter Quill has left Earth after the event of Avengers: Endgame.
Other Guardians Of The Galaxy Vol. 3 Updates
As mentioned that movie is set to release in 2023, we’ll see Chris Pratt, Dave Bautista, Karen Gillan, Bradley Cooper, Vin Diesel, Zoe Saldana, and Pom Klementieff reprise their roles of Star-Lord, Drax, Nebula, Rocket, Groot, Gamora, and Mantis respectively.
Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 is slated to release on May 5, 2023.
