In March 2017, James Gunn stated that there were plans for a third Guardians of the Galaxy film.[13]

In April 2017, Gunn announced that he would return to write and direct Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3, saying that the film would "conclude the story of this iteration of the Guardians of the Galaxy, and help catapult both old and new Marvel characters into the next ten years and beyond."[14] He also felt that the three Guardians films would "work together as a whole," telling one story.[15]

In April 2018, Chris Pratt confirmed that he would reprise his role as Peter Quill/Star-Lord.[3] The next month, Dave Bautista confirmed that he would reprise his role as Drax the Destroyer.[6]

In June 2018, Kevin Feige stated that Gunn had completed the first draft of the screenplay and that the film would start shooting in early 2019.[2]

In July 2018, The Walt Disney Company severed ties with Gunn after old tweets from Gunn surrounding topics such as rape and pedophilia resurfaced.[16] In response, many of the Guardians cast members including Pratt, Zoe Saldana, Bautista, Bradley Cooper, Vin Diesel, Sean Gunn, Pom Klementieff, Michael Rooker, and Karen Gillan, issued a statement in support of Gunn.[17] The production of the film was put on hold as a result of Gunn's firing, so Disney and Marvel could "regroup".[18]

In March 2019, Disney rehired Gunn as the director of the film.[1] Production on the film is expected to begin in 2020 after Gunn completes his work on The Suicide Squad.[19]

In May 2019, Chris Hemsworth expressed interest in possibly reprising his role as Thor in the film.[20]

On July 20, 2019, at San Diego Comic-Con 2019, Kevin Feige confirmed that many projects, including Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3, were in development.[21]

On November 29, 2019, Karen Gillan revealed that the film's script was finished and that she had read it.[22]
