James Gunn Says Disney/FOX Deal Won't Change Guardians of the Galaxy 3


James Gunn says the story for Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 will not be changed if the Disney/FOX deal closes. Fans of the Marvel Cinematic Universe have plenty of reasons to be excited for the future. The remaining movies in Phase 3 all offer some unique element, and there's no overlooking the culmination of the MCU to this point in Avengers 4. They recently gained access to Spider-Man, but they may soon get a bigger list of possible characters. Disney agreed to buy FOX late last year, and while the deal is awaiting regulatory approval, such a deal would allow all major Marvel characters to be part of the same universe.

All of this is going down as the MCU looks to expand the reaches of their franchises. The likes of Spider-Man: Homecoming and Ant-Man went small, while Black Panther opens up a new corner of Earth to play with. Meanwhile, James Gunn has been breaking open the cosmos with Guardians of the Galaxy. The possibility of FOX's Marvel characters being introduced is exciting and they could begin to be included in established franchises. But, Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 won't do that.

James Gunn responded to a series of fan questions recently on Twitter, and was asked by one fan in particular if the Disney/FOX deal will change his story for Vol. 3 - should it close. Gunn didn't waste any time giving his response, simply saying "No." Gunn is not one to lie to fans to retain surprises, so it looks like we can stop thinking about the possibilities of The Thing or Kitty Pryde joining the team.
