The Guardians of the Galaxy will be fully focused on saving Earth from Thanos (Josh Brolin) in the next two “Avengers: Infinity War” movies. James Gunn has confirmed that he will be working on the third instalment of his films only after the next two Avengers movies.

Replying to a fan question online, Gunn said that “Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3” will happen only after “Avengers 4.” The main characters from his movies are part of the upcoming films that will take them to Earth to face the invading army of Thanos.

Will all of the Guardians survive? Will any of them die? Gunn is not spilling the beans yet. Peter Quill (Chris Pratt), Gamora (Zoe Saldana), Drax (Dave Bautista), Rocket Raccoon (voiced by Bradley Cooper) and Teen Groot (voiced by Vin Diesel) will be present, along with The Collector (Benicio Del Toro).

Readers should note that Gunn killed one of his characters already. Groot is dead. The Baby Groot in the sequel is the son who doesn’t have memories of a father that died a heroic death, the director has already confirmed.

The “Avengers” film is supposed to be more serious, but the presence of Star-Lord and his gang will add some much-needed comedy. However, there is still a big possibility that there will be a devastating death.

What will be the theme of the third Guardians film? Gunn explained that the first was about learning to love, while the second was about allowing others to love you. Such themes will continue in the third as well.

“Avengers: Infinity War” will be released on April 25 in Australia. The last film in this series, which is yet to get a title, will be released sometime in 2019.
