The first Guardians of the Galaxy movie was a massive and unexpected success. People loved the comedic action featuring an ensemble of great actors playing or voicing lesser-known Marvel characters. We then saw the Guardians appear in a sequel, two Avengers movies, Thor: Love and Thunder, and a holiday special as their popularity increased. Now, Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 is one of the most anticipated movies of MCU Phase 5.
But Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 is also the end of the Guardians saga. As the third installment in the franchise, Vol. 3 will undoubtedly have higher stakes than the previous entries. And it should also be a lot darker than the other volumes. These aren’t spoilers, as James Gunn has been forthright about how Vol. 3 will differ from its predecessors.
Below, we’ll cover all the information available about the movie. We’ll share all of the details on the film’s theatrical debut, the Disney Plus release date, the trailers, and the cast.
Further down, we’ll list a number of Guardians 3 leaks and rumors. You’ll want to avoid our “Leaks and rumors” section if you want to be surprised next May.
Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 release date
Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 will be the second title in Phase 5 of the MCU to hit theaters. Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania premieres on February 17th, 2023, while Guardians 3 will start showing on the big screen on May 5th, 2023.
It’s unlikely that we’ll see any release date delays at this point. Marvel has already finished shooting the movie and released the first trailer, which you can watch below.
Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 Disney Plus release date
Marvel should give Guardians 3 a theatrical window of at least 45 days. That means Disney Plus will start streaming the movie sometime after June 19th next year. But if Guardians 3 does exceptionally well at the box office, Marvel might extend the theatrical window beyond that mid-June window.
