James Gunn Crashes Hopes for ‘Asgardians of the Galaxy’ Team Up in Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3


James Gunn is the director that brought Guardians of the Galaxy to the screens. He directed both the volumes of the movie and currently working on the Holiday Special and Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3. Apart from the works of James Gunn the Guardians have become a part of the Avengers movies in the Infinity Saga as well. Thor meets them and through the two movies, they develop a bond together.

After the war with Thanos is over, Thor joins the team to help the distressed throughout the Galaxy, but they parted ways in Thor: Love and Thunder and maybe it was the last time we saw the team up together.

Marvel fans wanted to see more of the adventures of Thor and the Guardians, but it would not be happening. James Gunn recently revealed the news as a response to the viral clip of My Mom’s Basement with Robbie Fox podcast. In the clip shared by @bss_clips, the guest of the podcast, Glem, is seen expressing his frustration on how the director being fired by Disney led to the absence of Thor in the upcoming movie.

The director responded to the clip by tweeting: “I appreciate the love but Thor was never going to be in Vol. 3.” He also previously shared he did not have much input on the appearance of Star-Lord and his crew in Thor: Love and Thunder. But he did consult on the characters and the two directors had exchanged scripts for the same.

Is this it for ‘Asgardians of the Galaxy?’

It is really upsetting for the MCU fans to see that the team-up was this short-lived. All that we got to see of the team together was in the early few minutes of Thor 4. Then after finding out about the butchered Gods, Thor finds Sif sending a distress signal and heads on to help her, while the Guardians of the Galaxy head off to answer the other distress calls.

Thor seems to have returned to his Asgardian duties alongside Valkyrie. Also, the Guardians have headed on their mission which seems to be the point where the Holiday Special might pick up from.
