Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 is James Gunn's emotional farewell
In the art of film-making, there are many accolades which masters of the craft fail to win. One of the most elusive is the rare badge of honor which comes with the third installment to a trilogy being able to live up to the first two. Francis Ford Coppola, Steven Spielberg and George Lucas have all been there. Another is one that arguably hasn’t yet been bestowed on anyone thus far, the merit of putting something meaningful together in a post-Thanos Marvel Cinematic Universe.
With James Gunn taking up the mantles of the new co-chair and co-CEO of DC Studios, it’s fair to assume that a new Guardians of the Galaxy movie carrying the baggage of two cinematic albatrosses around its neck might be a hiding to nothing. Astonishingly, it’s actually brilliant.
