Fans Approve James Gunn’s Update!
Despite the little detail about the film, fans saw the progress as an exciting one. They already know it would be lit since the soundtracks of the previous flicks highlighted the franchise even more.
The first movie’s soundtrack, Guardians of the Galaxy: Awesome Mix Vol. 1 features songs from Quill’s mixtape. This includes the 1960s and 1970s hits that still catch people’s attention up to this decade.
The songs Hooked on a Feeling, O-o-h Child, and I Want You Back. Because of Quill’s power, the soundtrack also made a record by becoming the second best-selling soundtrack album in the U.S. back in 2014.
The soundtrack came in second place next to Frozen’s soundtrack. Still, it made a record on its own by scoring a platinum certification from the RIAA.
Meanwhile, the second installment did the same, recreating the 1960s and 1970s song. In the end, it nabbed a Gold certification from the music industry company.
On Marvel Entertainment’s YouTube channel, a video confirmed that the Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 will be released on May 5, 2023. It will follow Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania’s schedule on Feb. 17, 2023.
