Administrators Joe and Anthony Russo verify their Avengers 4 was not impacted by Marvel Studios’ resolution to indefinitely delay Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3. At one cut-off date, the third outing for the franchise’s standard cosmic staff was penciled in as one of many first installments of Part 4. With James Gunn again on the helm, manufacturing was slated to start in 2019 for a theoretical 2020 bow. In fact, these plans drastically modified when Disney fired Gunn from Guardians over the summer time, after outdated offensive tweets of the filmmaker’s have been introduced again to the limelight.
Although Marvel nonetheless has each intention of utilizing Gunn’s Guardians of the Galaxy 3 script, there’s quite a lot of work to be completed earlier than the movie can transfer ahead. Discovering a alternative director is the highest precedence, which is why the mission was placed on maintain. Within the meantime, it is anticipated the complete Guardians staff (together with those that have been dusted in Infinity Warfare) will return in subsequent 12 months’s Avengers 4 – which presumably lays the groundwork for his or her future adventures. It would be comprehensible if one thought some modifications have been applied to mirror the brand new schedule, however that is not the case.

At a post-Infinity Warfare screening Q&A hosted by Collider, the Russos have been requested in the event that they needed to alter Avengers 4 in any manner due to the Guardians 3 delay. Peter Sciretta of /Movie shared the filmmakers’ response on Twitter, and you’ll learn it within the house under:
Principal pictures on Avengers 4 wrapped in January 2018, nicely earlier than the Gunn controversy blew up. Nevertheless, as is customary for big-budget productions, the Russos wanted to reconvene for reshoots. These befell after Gunn’s firing, seemingly operating from September to October. The filmmakers might have taken the chance to implement some story modifications right here, however that appears extremely unlikely. For starters, a majority of the Guardians ensemble gave the impression to be absent from the reshoots, with solely Karen Gillan and Pom Klementeiff seen on set. Plus, since Avengers 4 is large manufacturing with a number of shifting items, mixing a number of issues round might have compelled wholesale alterations throughout the board – which simply is not possible. By all accounts, it was simpler for the Russos to run with what they already had and Marvel will work out the remainder from there.
Since Guardians of the Galaxy 3 was solely delayed and never completely pulled/cancelled, this growth is not stunning. Gunn’s sensibilities performed a big function in making the obscure comedian title a family identify, however the sub-series is so profitable now (final 12 months’s Vol. 2 grossed $863.7 million worldwide), Marvel is clearly thinking about persevering with it and wish these characters again on the massive display. It’s going to be fascinating to see the place Avengers 4 leaves the staff, however followers can relaxation assured figuring out they will return someday.
