Nebula actress Karen Gillan claimed that the Guardians of the Galaxy 3 script is finished and “wonderful.”
Production has been pushed back for the film following James Gunn’s firing and subsequent re-hiring and is currently not on the Phase 4 line-up. This means that it will likely be one of the Phase 5 releases, although which one is uncertain.
In an interview with Yahoo! Entertainment, Karen said, “I can say that I’ve read it and it’s amazing. We’re all really excited that James is back to complete the trilogy because it wouldn’t have felt right without him. It’s a wonderful, wonderful script.”
In Avengers: Endgame, Nebula killed her past, alternate timeline self, and her alternate timeline past sister Gamora came to the future and stayed there. There’s a lot of weird family drama in the Thanos household to be resolved, and perhaps James Gunn will delve into it.
The Gamora we know from Guardians of the Galaxy and its sequel is dead, as she was hurled from a cliff for the soul stone by Thanos, and so that variation, Starlord’s girlfriend, will not be making a return.
Karen also revealed that she never had the full script of Avengers: Endgame, “I didn’t get the whole script, but I got a good chunk of it and so I could easily work out what was happening.”
Gillan also revealed that she was never intended to make it past the first Guardians of the Galaxy film. She said, “When I signed on to Nebula, it was eight days of filming and she was supposed to die in the first Guardians film. So, to go on and be able to evolve the character and then have her be this pivotal role in Endgame was amazing. I didn’t see it coming at all.”
What is James Gunn working on right now?
At the moment, Gunn isn’t making Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3, he might have been writing the script, but he is currently busy with DC’s The Suicide Squad.
The villainous team-up isn’t set to release until 2021 and so it’s unlikely that production for Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 will begin anytime soon. We’re likely to see a release in 2022 or 2023.
