Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 for several years. Guardians of the Galaxy on the face of it, this is only a problem. However, in the broader scope of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, this is potentially a much bigger deal. While Marvel has said little about what happened in Phase Four Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 What is going to set the stage for the entire next phase, so if the movie isn 2022 or later, what does that say about Phase Four?
In short, it says that Phase Four will probably go to work. Marry movies released in between Spider-Man: Far From Home and Guardians of the Galaxy Vol 3 . Phase Four wants to be underway before Star-Lord, Rocket and the rest again.
However, that means Guardians Vol. 3 is not going to launch the MCU into Phase Four Thor movie anytime soon and it's unlikely we'll be jumping that in a Captain Marvel sequel.
The thing is, if Marvel wanted to, they could almost certainly get Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 There are no more cosmic heroes available to take the place of the Guardians. off the ground at or near its original release date if they made that a priority. They have a script, written by James Gunn before his unceremonious dismissal, and have all been written. Finding a director should not be that hard. This is Marvel.
Even if Marvel decided to go back to formula, get a new script, hire a new director, and recast to angry Dave Bautista, it still would not be 't take them two and a half years to be ready to go into production. This extensive delay seems odd. Why would Marvel know, right now, that Guardians was not going to begin shooting until 2021? It would seem to be intentional decision the studio has made to wait. So why are they doing it?
Just today, it's been announced that Disney's Jungle Cruise movie was essentially taken over a release window where an Untitled Marvel movie had been set. MCU schedule is not just shifted around, it is about to go through real change. Jungle Cruise is an untested property that has been given a prime summer release date. It could be that Disney is just getting high on Dwayne Johnson's new movie and wanted to give it a bigger date than next October, or it could be that Disney needed to fill it with something because of the movie what is available.
The issue is not just that of the Fourth May because Guardians Vol. 3 has been delayed, it's that Guardians Vol. 3 may be delayed due phase Four is changing.
The fact that the Disney / Fox merger may be finalized by the first of the year can not be ignored here. When James Gunn originally said he was hanging around after Guardians of the Galaxy Vol 2 To make a film and work on Stage Four as well as the X-Men and the Fantastic Four was far from being a reality. However, when Marvel Studios went to James Gunn, it was a real thing that happened.
Perhaps, after looking at the situation, Kevin Feige and company decided that with the future of the Guardians franchise in question, they needed to just shift gears entirely. Keeping the MCU more Earth-based, at least for a while, would be safer, but with new characters on the way, it could still be made fresh and new, something distinct from the previous phase.
If the decision was to move Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 further down the line. Guardians is not the franchise you want to do that.
While there's a lot we do not know about the Marvel film There is no such thing as cosmic.
Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 to as late as possible. If any of the rumors were true, there would be some time to pass. James Gunn a second chance, the odds of that actually happen. After a few years, James Gunn has "learned his lesson" and he and Disney have reconciled. I do not honestly believe that will happen, but it could happen.
Of course, all this is supposition that is based on a rumor, so it's possible the premise is faulty. Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 There is no longer anything going on the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
