James Gunn has confirmed that the script for Guardians of the Galaxy 3 is complete and production heads for the movie have also been chosen.

The third Guardians of the Galaxy movie was originally intended to hit the big screen in 2020. Unfortunately, the firing of director James Gunn in 2018, due to old offensive tweets, halted the process indefinitely.

After an uproar online, with fans defending the director’s actions, Marvel decided to rehire Gunn for Guardians of the Galaxy 3, but his work on The Suicide Squad meant the movie still had to be held up a bit longer.

When is Guardians of the Galaxy 3 out?

Due to the ongoing health crisis, a lot of Marvel’s phase four movies have seen a delay. However, as a part of the fifth phase, Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 is expected to be released in theaters in either late 2022 or 2023.

The director of the movie, James Gunn, recently told fans that the script was done – aside from minor tweaks – with most production heads having already been chosen for the movie.

He also explained that he didn’t have to change much from the original script he had planned prior to being fired and that Dave Bautista would be returning as Drax.

This came after Bautista claimed he did not want to appear in the third movie if Gunn wasn’t directing it. He was a strong advocate for the director, despite the tweets, vouching for his character on multiple occasions.

Though these updates have built excitement among fans, the movie is unlikely to go into production soon, with at least eight other MCU movies due to be released beforehand.

Gunn’s work on DC’s The Suicide Squad has taken priority recently, with the movie due to come out on August 6, 2021. However, progress with Guardians of the Galaxy could be a sign that production may come sooner than expected.

There will be a lot of new challenges for the Guardians to face in volume three, with Gamora now coming from a different timeline, Nebula becoming an ally, and the possibility of Thor joining the group post-Endgame.

That being said, it’s unlikely that the movie will be tying into the multiverse – which seems to be the main focus of phase four – with Gunn saying the only time he had to include anything from the bigger picture was with Thanos in volume one.

Still, with him back in the director’s seat, the movie will be in safe hands, hopefully delivering another fan-favorite for the MCU.

Will Smith is one of Hollywood’s best-known actors. From legendary films such as I-Robot and Men In Black to voiceover parts in Disney Pixar films, Will has done it all. This long and lucrative career has paid off, and as a result, Will has an incredible and varied collection of cars. 

From being the Fresh Prince of Bel Air to taking starring roles in big-name Hollywood blockbusters, Will Smith has become a household name around the world.

This fame has undoubtedly paid off, and as a result, Will has a reported net worth of around $350 million. A good chunk of that seems to have been spent on cars, with his garage housing some incredible machines. Here are our highlights from Will Smith’s car collection.

Will Smith’s luxury car collection

Will is evidently a man that prioritizes luxury over performance if his car collection is anything to go by. With numerous high-end luxury cars in his fleet, many of these vehicles are the sort of cars to be driven around in, as opposed to driving yourself.

One of the most expensive and most exclusive vehicles in Will’s collection is his Maybach 57s. Valued at around $360,000 from new, the 57s is one of the most luxurious vehicles on the road. To go with the 57s, Will also owns a blacked-out Rolls Royce Ghost, which both he and Jaden Smith have been spotted in numerous times.

When he’s on family duties, Smith also has a number of big, luxurious SUVs. From a massive Cadillac Escalade to a more subtle Mercedes-Benz GL450. By complete contrast to the GL450, Will also owns a massive 16-wheeler RV. Split over two storeys, the RV is luxury living on wheels.

Sports cars

Will’s only ‘supercar’ is his BMW i8.

Surprisingly for a big-name star, Will Smith doesn’t have a particularly big collection of sports or performance cars.

The closest thing he has to a typical ‘supercar’ is the hybrid BMW i8. This ‘green’ BMW mixes traditional combustion-engined power and electric motors to produce 368bhp, and a 0-60 time of just 4.4 seconds. No doubt the choice to buy such a futuristic sports car was inspired by all the sci-fi films that Smith has starred in over the years.

There may be another ‘green’ car set to join the Smith household too. Will has been pictured numerous times with a Porsche Taycan, though it is unclear whether the all-electric supercar is his or simply a loan car from the dealer.

Finally, there’s one more standout car from his collection that we can’t ignore. In complete contrast to the rest of his eco-friendly sports cars, he owns a Cherry Red 1965 Ford Mustang. Powered by an ancient V8, gas-guzzling engine, the Mustang is the epitome of American Muscle car icons, and is perfect for a Hollywood Celebrity looking to enjoy the finer things in life.

All in all, while Will Smith’s car collection isn’t the biggest or fastest, it’s certainly varied. With a car for all occasions, Will’s motoring looks set for both the past and future.
