The Guardians were brought back (well, not Gamora, exactly) in 'Avengers: Endgame', and it's time for them to shine in the third film of their own franchise. However, that might take a while. Filmmaker James Gunn continues to entertain questions about the film and offers some fun pieces of trivia about his upcoming films.

During a "self-Quarantine Q&A" on James's Instagram story, a fan asked if his brother Sean would return for the upcoming 'Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3'. To this, Gunn answered, "What kind of Guardians movie would it be without Kraglin?"

If you recall, at the end of 'Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2' Kraglin (Sean Gunn) was found holding on to Yondu's fin. He was also learning how to handle his whistle-controlled Yaka arrow.

Fans have a long wait ahead for the third Guardians film as it is not in the official Marvel line-up as yet. In his earlier tweets, James had mentioned that he would wrap up DC's 'Suicide Squad', which will release in 2021. Yet the small respite is that some of the Guardians' characters will appear in the upcoming 'Thor: Love And Thunder', which is being directed by Taika Waititi.

"I am waiting and excited for my friend James Gunn to knock this next one out of the park," Vin Diesel told ComicBook.com during an interview. "He took 'The Suicide Squad' so he's about to embark on it. Thor will also, the director talked to me about Thor will incorporate some of the Guardians of the Galaxy." 

The 'Guardians' cast includes Zoe Saldana as Gamora, Chris Pratt as Peter Quill/ Star-Lord, Vin Diesel voicing Groot, Bradley Cooper voicing Rocket, Dave Bautista as Drax, Karen Gillan as Nebula and Michael Yooker as Yondu. Groot will be Groot Prime by this time of the film. 

In 'Avengers: Infinity War', most of the Guardians were snapped away by Thanos (Josh Brolin). After the time heist in 'Endgame', the Guardians along with the rest of the Avengers were brought back for the final battle. Gamora had been killed by Thanos in 'Infinity War'. However, the past version of herself was in 'Endgame' and the third 'Guardians' film might see Star-Lord trying to track her down.
