Three years ago, only Marvel comic book fans had any idea who the Guardians of the Galaxy were, and yet their MCU debut went on to become one of the biggest hits of 2014. Next month, Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 is likely to be an even bigger blockbuster, and Marvel isn’t taking any chances! James Gunn has already been locked up to write and direct Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3, but that film may be the end of the team as you’ve known them. Today’s Nerdist News is coming straight outta Knowhere as we tell you what it means for the future of the Guardians!


Join host, and cryogenically preserved astronaut, Jessica Chobot, as she breaks down Gunn’s announcement about his MCU future. Earlier this week, Gunn said “Vol. 3 will conclude the story of this iteration of the Guardians of the Galaxy and help catapult both old and new Marvel characters into the next ten years and beyond.”

The funny thing is that the current Guardians of the Galaxy team hasn’t even been around for a decade in the comics. But the Guardians do have a long history, including the original team from the future of the Marvel Universe. Gunn’s statement clearly leaves the door open for future sequels with a new team of Guardians, but we may lose some fan favorites along the way. That said, we shouldn’t be too surprised if Rocket Raccoon and Groot end up with their own spinoff movie.

Guardians of the Galaxy Original Team

But who should leave the team and who should remain? We’ve got a few ideas about that, including members from the original Guardians. That’s right, we’d love to see Vance Astro on the team! Although he would probably be declared an Inhuman instead of a Mutant, because that’s how Marvel rolls these days.

Who do you want to see on the next iteration of the Guardians of the Galaxy after Vol. 3? Let’s discuss in the comment section below!
