According to SuperBroMovies, the directors currently on Marvel's Shortlist for Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 are Dee Rees, Michelle MacLaren, S.J. Clarkson and Jane Campion. Remember that even if these women really for Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 that does not mean that none of them will get the job. There might be other names being whirled around, and we can not foresee that someone could hack the gig they never talked about. Still, let's go over each of these four women's CVs.

Originally, MacLaren was also supposed to direct Wonder Woman but due to creative differences, she resigned and replaced Patty Jenkins.

Like Michelle MacLaren, S.J. Clarkson has an impressive TV executive summary that includes Dexter Jessica Jones and The Defenders . In April, Clarkson was hired to direct Star Trek 4 but since this film is currently in limbo because of Chris Pine and Chris Hemsworth, one wonders if she could be drawn to . Guardian of the Galaxy Vol. 3 .
After all, Jane Campion is best known for directing 1993 The Piano which earned her an Oscar for Best Director nomination. Campion is currently monitoring the television series Top of the Lake but Guardian of the Galaxy Vol. 3 could be an opportunity for them to make a lasting impression on the world of blockbuster film.
Something tells me that we'll hear more directors for Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 in the near future, but those names are a promising start.
