GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY VOL. 3 Is Set After INFINITY WAR; VOL 2. Will Have Another Secret Easter Egg

After recent comments, some fans speculated the third installment of Guardians of the Galaxy could take place prior to Avengers: Infinity War, something director James Gunn has now refuted.

Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige revealed yesterday that there will be a four year gap between the events of Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 and Avengers: Infinity War. While it's certainly a long interval for the spacefaring misfits, it makes sense considering that Vol. 2 picks up a month or so after the 2014 events of the first film, and Infinity War will be set (more or less) in 2018.

Given the stretch of time, it led some fans to speculate that the now-confirmed sequel, Vol 3., may be set somewhere in that four year gap. However, James Gunn seemingly assured in an interview with The Independent that the third installment would be taking place after Infinity War's events; since Gunn is acting as an executive producer for the Avengers epic, he's been on set and heavily involved with the development of the Guardians.

"I’m not totally letting go of the Guardians, I’m still hanging onto them a little as they go through [Infinity War]," Gunn said. "I am with the guys, I’m talking to the Russo Brothers, I’m talking to the cast, I’m dealing with all sorts of stuff so we can have the characters remain true to themselves and they end up where they need to be for Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3."

Additionally, Gunn also confirmed that Vol. 2 will follow suit with its predecessor by having another super secret, almost-impossible-to-find Easter Egg for fans. Gunn has been quizzed many times over whether or not the first film's mystery had been discovered, and while the director still wouldn't reveal what it is, he verified that fans have come very close. "I am not going to [reveal anything], but people have gotten very close. So, I don’t think it will be very long until it comes out."
