Director James Gunn discusses how the penultimate scene for the upcoming Marvel Studios blockbuster Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 was shot.The penultimate shot for Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 was filmed in a unique way, according to director James Gunn. The plot of the upcoming Marvel Studios picture is being kept under wraps, and no one from the cast or crew has so far revealed any secrets. Gunn, on the other hand, has been generous in revealing behind-the-scenes footage from the film's production, fueling anticipation among fans. While the release of Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 has been delayed, Gunn has long been committed to the trilogy's storyline and iconic music. Work on the film has finally wrapped after months of principal photography, with Gunn and some of the cast members becoming sentimental. Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 is set to conclude the MCU threequel, making it the final appearance of the beloved cosmic team's original lineup. The film, which is expected to be emotional, will also introduce Adam Warlock, played by Will Poulter. Meanwhile, Peacemaker's Chukwuji Iwuji joins Marvel in an unspecified role.
Why Do So Many People Hate Chris Pratt and Want Star-Lord to Be Recast?The filmmaker is justifiably guarded of the plot of Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3, but he keeps his fans engaged by regularly revealing behind-the-scenes footage from the shoot. In his most recent tweet, Gunn shared a video of himself and cinematographer Henry Braham shooting the film's "second-to-last shot." Take a look at the video below:
Given Gunn's firing and subsequent rehiring, it's no surprise that production on Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 was chaotic. Beyond that, finishing off the MCU sub-franchise has been an emotional experience for the filmmaker, given how important each team member has been to him — something he has made clear. Gunn's production wrap announcement for Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 was touching, as he reflected on the past decade spent building these characters and their collective and individual arcs in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. He then disclosed that the final shot he shot for the film was of Rocket Raccoon and Sean Gunn. Although no context was provided, it could reflect the importance of the hero in the threequel's story. The penultimate photo for Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 is similarly devoid of context. There's no indication of what Gunn is shooting here. However, given the camera's and their positions, it appears to be an overhead image of something. This could be anything, including an establishing or background scene. However, given Gunn's sentimental inclination when it comes to his projects, it's not out of the question that whatever he's recording here is significant to the tale.
