‘No Reason’ for The Suicide Squad and Guardians of the Galaxy 3 to Be Delayed

James Gunn, answering fan questions on Twitter, stated that nether of his upcoming films for DC and Marvel — The Suicide Squad and Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 — are currently having their release dates affected by the coronavirus crisis.

Obviously, this could change somewhere down the line, but for right now Gunn explained “there’s no reason for The Suicide Squad release date to move. We are on or ahead of schedule. We were extremely fortunate to wrap shooting & set up editing from our homes (due to a post production team & studio with foresight) before quarantine.”

Gunn also mentioned that the plans for Guardians Vol. 3 remain the same…

The Suicide Squad wrapped production back on February 29, with a heartfelt message from Gunn. The film is scheduled to premiere August 6, 2021.

Meanwhile, Rocket’s past is reportedly a “big part” of Guardians Vol. 3, with Gunn also not completely ruling out a possibl Drax and Mantis spinoff. Since production has yet to begin, Guardians Vol. 3 currently has no official release date.

As Black Widow has now been moved from May to November, most of Marvel’s Phase 4 has been shifted around. It’s hard to believe, back in 2006, the MCU was just a hopeful glint in Marvel Studios’ eyes. You can watch the first-ever tease of the MCU here.
