Guardians of the Galaxy – 91% was a film that did not appeal to the public at first, however, once the premiere arrived, it was impossible not to fall for the charm of the characters. This production became a triumph for Marvel Studios and James Gunn secured good employment alongside Kevin Feige; the second part was made and it was also a success, so the Guardians have become fundamental cogs of the entire saga. And we will still have much more of them.
Although The Walt Disney Company fired James Gunn During the summer of 2018 due to a scandal on social networks, it did not take long for the company and the director to join forces again. Single Gunn it is seen as the mind behind the guardians and the fans were not willing to accept someone else to direct the third part. Kevin Feige had no choice and brought back James, who already has his script for Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 ready and will also surprise fans with a Christmas special for the end of 2022. Here are his words on Twitter:

In my incredibly subjective and certainly often bizarre opinion, we will introduce one of the greatest MCU characters of all time. #GoTHolidaySpecial

During his time away from The Walt Disney Company, James Gunn had direct contact with Warner Bros. and the DC Extended Universe. The filmmaker took on The Suicide Squad – 91%, a film that functions as a type of sequel to the one released in 2016; Although the box office collection was not what was expected, the continuation was well received by critics and fans, who highlight it as one of the funniest installments of the entire saga. Meanwhile, Warner continues to search for the best path for its products on the small and big screen, although some wonder what will happen to the characters whose stories were started by Zack Snyder.
Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 – 82% was released in 2017, that is, four years have passed and we still do not have a new film. The dismissal of Gunn and the coronavirus pandemic generated severe delays in the schedule, but things are already returning to normal and very soon we will enjoy the new adventures of the team. The Christmas special will premiere in December 2022 and the third part on May 5, 2023.
For its part, the Marvel Cinematic Universe continues to advance with firm steps. At the moment Shang-Chi and the legend of the ten rings is on the billboard – 95%, a film that surprised with a solid adventure and a good global collection. The next release is Eternals, a film that will introduce us to different characters in the MCU, powerful beings who will be in charge of facing a primal threat on Earth. 2020 was a terrible year for Marvel Studios, however, this 2021 returns to its usual practices, bombarding the cinema and television with incredible projects that dominate the superhero genre.
