Kevin Feige has confirmed that 'Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3' will use James Gunn's script.
The President of Marvel Studios has revealed the film will be based on the story created by 52-year-old Gunn, who wrote and directed the first two films in the Marvel sci-fi series before he was fired by Disney following the emergence of old offensive Twitter posts in which he joked about paedophilia, homophobia and rape.
The third instalment of the 'Guardians' trilogy was originally intended to start production in early 2019 however the 45-year-old producer has revealed that other than knowing they will use Gunn's script he doesn't know when filming will begin because Marvel has been "focusing on other projects".
Speaking to Collider, Feige said: "I mean, when it was pushed back, it was pushed back. Meaning the release date, because it's not coming out - although we've never announced a release date actually - but it was gonna happen sooner rather than later, initially of course.
"Outside of knowing that we're gonna use [James Gunn's] draft, [we have] been focusing on other projects."
