At the end of Avengers: Endgame, Thor decided to leave the Earth behind and join Peter Quill and the rest of the Guardians of the Galaxy out in space. As he did so, he dubbed the team the “Asgardians of the Galaxy,” a clever nod to a recent new Marvel comic series. Of course, this instantly sparked speculation about the upcoming Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3, with fans wondering if Thor would appear in the film, as well as if the movie would be titled Asgardians of the Galaxy.
While details on the upcoming film are scarce, returning writer/director James Gunn has now seemingly nixed the idea that the film might be titled Asgardians of the Galaxy.
On Instagram, the director posted multiple stories featuring a plethora of fan requests sent through his direct messages. Plenty of these requests were odd or humorous, with fans asking the director to put a dragon, Shrek or Queen’s “Radio Gaga” in Vol. 3. However, one fan pleaded Gunn not to title the upcoming sequel Asgardians of the Galaxy, and the director actually offered an answer: “Don’t worry.”
It may not exactly be an official title reveal, but it seemingly confirms that the next Guardians film will not bear the name mentioned at the end of Endgame.
Further details about Marvel Studios’ upcoming Phase 4 -- which will include Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 -- have not yet been unveiled, but president Kevin Feige has confirmed that official announcements will come following the release of Spider-Man: Far From Home in early July. While we may not yet know if Chris Hemsworth’s Thor will indeed join the galactic super-team on their next big adventure, star Dave Bautista, who plays Drax the Destroyer in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, recently said that he would love to see the actor in threequel.
Directed by Joe and Anthony Russo, Avengers: Endgame stars Robert Downey Jr. as Iron Man, Chris Evans as Captain America, Mark Ruffalo as Bruce Banner, Chris Hemsworth as Thor, Scarlett Johansson as Black Widow, Jeremy Renner as Hawkeye, Brie Larson as Captain Marvel, Paul Rudd as Ant-Man, Don Cheadle as War Machine, Karen Gillan as Nebula, Danai Gurira as Okoye and Bradley Cooper as Rocket, with Gwyneth Paltrow Pepper Potts, Jon Favreau as Happy Hogan, Benedict Wong as Wong, Tessa Thompson as Valkyrie and Josh Brolin as Thanos. The film is in theaters now, and will soon receive a re-release featuring several new after-credits scenes and a special tribute to the late Stan Lee.
