Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 director James Gunn shares images of the gifts he received from the MCU movie’s crew after they wrapped filming.
Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 director James Gunn reveals the gifts he received from the production’s crew after the film had wrapped. Gunn first joined the MCU with the Guardians of the Galaxy, a wildly popular superhero team origin story that is often regarded as one of his best films. Although five years have passed since Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2, the team has appeared in both Avengers: Infinity War and Avengers: Endgame, and will appear in Thor: Love and Thunder and The Guardians of the Galaxy Holiday Special. Vol. 3 sees the return of the core team, Chris Pratt as Peter Quill/Star-Lord, Zoe Saldaña as Gamora, Bradley Cooper as Rocket, Vin Diesel as Groot, and Dave Bautista as Drax the Destroyer, who recently announced that the upcoming film will be the last for his character.
Guardians of the Galaxy 3 saw a turbulent development and production schedule, partly due to Gunn’s firing/rehiring by Disney and the pandemic. The MCU project hit a major milestone last week when Gunn revealed the film had officially finished production. The director made the announcement by sharing an image of the movie’s slate for the final shot, which was an easy take of Rocket sitting down. Gunn has consistently kept fans in the loop regarding his projects, and that hasn’t stopped even now that Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 has wrapped filming.
In a recent post to Instagram, Gunn shared ten images showcasing the cherished gifts that he received from several crew members after production wrapped on Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3. These gifts include a book of unseen stills from The Suicide Squad, a pin of a set Dog named River dressed like Cosmo, a handmade knife, an engraved wooden tray, a whisky glass etched with a cassette tape, two books, a hand-drawn portrait, a personalized T-shirt featuring the cereal brand “Freakies”, and a custom T-shirt from the Grip department. Check out the set of images below:
Like most MCU projects, Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3‘s plot has yet to be revealed. Recent set photos and videos, as well as comments from Gunn himself, have fueled speculation leading up to Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3‘s release. Gunn notoriously teased in 2019 that Guardians of the Galaxy 3 would feature a major Guardians character’s death, which has caused fans to only want to know more about the sequel. Unfortunately, it doesn’t seem like these wrap gifts provide any additional details for the upcoming film. The gifts appear to simply be personalized sentimental items to show the crew’s appreciation for Gunn’s work and leadership on the final movie of the series.
Regardless of the lack of new details the gifts provide, they show that Gunn has truly cherished his experience with the cast and crew in his final outing in the MCU. Guardians of the Galaxy has been a huge part of Gunn’s career, so it’s only natural that he is emotional about production coming to a close. The director will likely continue to keep fans in the loop as the film enters post-production, but future posts likely won’t reveal much more than these images do. Even with the limited amount of information, based on the cast and crew’s reactions so far, it looks like Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 is shaping up to be a touching conclusion to the plucky group of heroes.
