Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 has been a hit at the box office, earning over $500 million worldwide in just two weeks. The third instalment was already confirmed as happening before the sequel even reached cinemas and James Gunn will once again write and direct.
It’s obviously far too soon to know for sure what direction the movie will take, especially as the Guardians look set to make their presence felt in Avengers: Infinity War next year.
Below, you’ll find an in-depth look at ten things we think we’ll see in Vol. 3 a few years from now. Some are based on the big hints dropped in Vol. 2 and others have a basis in rumours or simple wild speculation, but any one of these would be amazing to see happen!
10. Star-Lord Returns To Earth
It’s entirely possible that the Guardians of the Galaxy will be forced to return to Earth to tackle Thanos, but who’s to say the Mad Titan will necessarily make his presence felt on the home of both The Avengers and Star-Lord?
It’s entirely possible that this will be an entirely cosmic adventure similar to the Infinity Gauntlet comic book, and if that’s the case, we may not see Peter Quill back on Terra until Vol. 3 rolls around.
What will bring him home remains to be seen and it’s probably best if the threequel doesn’t spend too much time there, but perhaps his story will wrap up with him deciding to reunite with his family.
