James Gunn has found his biggest obstacle in writing the Guardians Of The Galaxy Vol. 3 script: James Gunn. The writer/director is debating whether or not to break his own established Marvel Cinematic Universe continuity. He dove into this issue during a conference at E3.

"I'm writing Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 and I finished the first draft of the treatment yesterday. I'm excited about it. I feel really great about it. But there's one little thing that I had in the first movie. Now, Marvel Canon - MCU - is crazy ... I did something in [Guardians of the Galaxy] where it was in the background but it was distinctly there, and people know that it's there ... I have a really good storytelling reason for breaking the canon, and I stayed up last night figuring out if I'm gonna do it or not. I still don't know."

While he didn't reveal what the continuity change would be outright, he did allude to it.

"In the first movie there is the mugshot sequence where the characters go through and they're going through the mugshots and having their picture taken. And the Nova Corps has information about each of the characters coming up on their machinery. Those things are something that your average viewer doesn't see at all. But there's a lot of background I put into those things about who they've worked with, where they are from, what's going on. And it's one of those things that I'm thinking about changing."


Our money is on a change in Gamora's description, that she doesn't actually weigh 852 grets.

No release date has been given for Guardians Of The Galaxy Vol 3.
