“[Marvel] chose to have that ending in editing. And I didn’t think it was gonna be in there. ‘Endgame’ came out right after I decided to do ‘Guardians’ again. So I didn’t have much say in what was in ‘Endgame,’ and then it came out and then I was like, What the f*ck am I gonna do?”

James Gunn Thanked Taika Waititi 

The co-CEO of the DCU revealed that he was relieved after knowing that the director of Thor: Love and Thunder, Taika Waititi, decided to involve Guardians in his movie. Thor: Ragnarok’s director decided to elaborate the connection between Thor and Guardians in his movie, which made Gunn’s work much easier. James Gunn added that Chris Hemsworth’s MCU character was never going to be in his movie, and it was Waititi who saved him by incorporating and presenting both Thor and Guardians on screen. 

“When [Marvel Studios president] Kevin [Feige] told me, ‘Taika’s gonna do Thor, and we’ll have the Guardians in it’. I said, ‘Thank God!’. To be completely honest, Thor was never going to be in this movie. Taika took a bullet for me. Because I was not going to have him in. I was just gonna start up and there’s no Thor.”

Despite his initial surprise, Gunn’s comments indicate that he ultimately embraced the idea of Thor joining the Guardians of the Galaxy only because of Waititi. It looks like James Gunn came out to be lucky in his last MCU movie. Gunn won’t work any longer on any MCU movie and will focus his efforts on rebuilding the DCU.

Guardians of the Galaxy Volume 3 is scheduled to be released on May 5, 2023.
