None of the franchises in the Marvel Cinematic Universe is more surreal than Guardians of the Galaxy. The series that made both a swearing raccoon and a talking tree into household names was a lock for a complete trilogy until outside forces derailed it. But you can't keep a good series to only two films, and it wasn't long until the series was back on track. In even better news, the third (and possibly final) installment for the franchise, Guardians Of The Galaxy Vol. 3, officially has a release date and a brand new logo.
When Guardians was initially released in 2014, the Phase 2 entry seemed like the most significant swing of the MCU to date. It proved that Marvel did have a Midas touch, bringing in a whopping $773 million worldwide. Director James Gunn's sequel, GOTG Vol. 2, did similarly well. It wasn't long before Vol. 3 was slated to open Phase 4.
