James Gunn gave us a rough timeline as to when we can expect Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3, around this time in 2020, that finding out when they are going to start shooting isn’t that surprising.
Today it is Mantis actress Pom Klementieff’s birthday and co-star Chris Pratt took to instagram to wish her a happy birthday. While wishing her a happy birthday he said “can’t wait to start shooting Guardians Vol. 3 with her next year!” which makes sense if the movie is shooting for a 2020 release date.
WARNING FOR AVENGERS: INFINITY WAR SPOILERS BELOW.
If you’ve seen the end of Avengers: Infinity War you know that both Mantis and Peter Quill were two victims of the snap. Does this confirm that they are returning for the next movie?
It might be but the Guardians of the Galaxy movies operate on a different timeline. The events of the second movie take place years before the events of Infinity War and, in an attempt to keep the series more separate from the events of the greater MCU, James Gunn could just say it happens before Infinity War.
That is an easy way to make sure that Gamora, who was killed by Thanos to obtain the Soul Stone, is still around. So no one should take Pratt saying him and Klementieff returning for the third movie as an absolute certainty that they will be coming back to life in Avengers 4.
Summary: As the Avengers and their allies have continued to protect the world from threats too large for any one hero to handle, a new danger has emerged from the cosmic shadows: Thanos.
A despot of intergalactic infamy, his goal is to collect all six Infinity Stones, artifacts of unimaginable power, and use them to inflict his twisted will on all of reality. Everything the Avengers have fought for has led up to this moment – the fate of Earth and existence itself has never been more uncertain.
