Guardians of the Galaxy director James Gunn might be busy working on The Suicide Squad for the DC Extended Universe, but that doesn't mean that he's forgotten about Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3. The Marvel director has already prepared his script for the third and final act in his cosmic comic book movie trilogy, though it took him quite some time to complete the story for Guardians 3.

Speaking in an interview with Cinema Blend, Gunn opened up about his scripts, saying that The Suicide Squad took much less time to write than Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3.


"This one was short! A few months. Guardians Vol 3 took a year. The Specials took a week and Super took maybe three weeks. It's always different," the director told the entertainment news outlet.

That's true. Each movie has a different challenge. Perhaps Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 took longer for Gunn to write because it's the last film in his trilogy, and now he has to deal with the aftermath of Avengers: Endgame as well as the events that are to come in Phase 4 of the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

The director probably had to take time because he had to talk with Marvel and consult with other directors for his script to make sure that Guardians 3 fit in with the timeline of the rest of the other movies in the MCU.

We can't wait to see what Gunn has prepared for everyone with The Suicide Squad and with Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3.

The Suicide Squad premieres August 6, 2021. Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3, on the other hand, has yet to receive a release date from Marvel.
