If there's one thing that truly sets the Guardians of the Galaxy films apart from the other Marvel Cinematic Universe flicks, it would be the nostalgic soundtrack. After all, these songs from the 70s and 80s represent Peter Quill's childhood and taste in music. But is it possible that Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 will finally feature some current hits? Director James Gunn has spoken up about the rumors, shooting down any possibilities of the sequel making any drastic changes!

Fans have a lot of theories when it comes to Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3. One of the more interesting ones purports that Peter Quill discovered some new music when he arrived on Earth during Avengers: Endgame, which should open up the possibility of the sequel's soundtrack finally featuring the likes of Kanye West, Billie Eilish, or Beyonce.

So is there any truth to the rumors? James Gunn has confirmed that Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 will still rely on what songs are in Quill's Zune.

This is actually a relief for fans who have been hoping that Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 will continue to feature some good old tunes. For now, James Gunn hasn't dropped any hints at what songs will be featured in the sequel but hopefully, we'll be getting some awesome updates on the MCU movie really soon.

Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 is set to bring back Chris Pratt, Zoe Saldaña, Dave Bautista, Vin Diesel, Bradley Cooper, Karen Gillan, Pom Klementieff, Sean Gunn, and Sylvester Stallone. They will be joined by Maze Runner star Will Poulter, who has been confirmed to play Adam Warlock in the sequel.


The sequel is currently in production and filming is expected to continue until April 2022. Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 is scheduled for release on May 5, 2023.
