From news of Guardians of the Galaxy 3, to a Marvel actor’s newest project, and Jason Statham’s next role, this week had some very exciting news! Read about all this, and more, below! 

Guardians of the Galaxy 3 has finished shooting 

Only a few hours ago (on May 7th, 2022) via Twitter, the director of Marvel Studios’ Guardians of the Galaxy 3 has revealed that the exciting 2023 feature has finished filming. 

The Guardians of the Galaxy franchise was perhaps unexpected at its start, but has grown to be beloved by many Marvel fans. The film was set to release a few years ago, but suffered delays due to the firing and rehiring of director James Gunn

While details, other than cast members, are being kept under lock and key for now, there is speculation that the threequel takes place after Thor: Love and Thunder, which releases on July 8th, 2022. 

The Twitter photo shows Sean Gunn, Pom Klementieff, Gunn himself, Keren Gillan, and Dave Bautista, with a secondary photo underneath of Zoe Saldaña. 

Marvel actor cast in upcoming true story thriller 

Daniel Brühl, best known for his role as Baron Zemo in both Captain America: Civil War and Disney+ and Marvel series The Falcon and The Winter Soldier, has been cast in a forthcoming true story motorsport thriller. 

2 Win, the title of the project, takes inspiration from the events which took place in 1983 at the Rally World Championships. The tale’s focus will be on German racer Roland Gumpert, who competes with Italian driver Cesare Fiorio to win the tournament. 

Brühl will be playing Gumpert, with Riccardo Scamarcio (John Wick: Chapter 2) set to play his rival, Fiorio. 

2 Win should begin filming in Europe later this month (May, 2022); some locations for the movie include areas where the events within the feature took place. 

Suicide Squad director to helm new film starring Jason Statham 

Director of Suicide Squad and Fury, David Ayer, is now set to direct upcoming Jason Statham movie titled The Bee Keeper

The forthcoming film’s narrative is said to be a fast-paced thriller which resides in the mythology of Bee Keeping, which is a somewhat unconventional plot. 

Statham, who is known for starring in the Fast and Furious franchise, as well as The Meg and recent release Wrath of Man, is the only star included in the project thus far; production is expected to begin later in the summer (2022). 

Details of John Wick 4 shared by movie’s director 

Director of the fourth entry in the John Wick franchise, Chad Stahelski, has recently spoken with Collider about the upcoming sequel, teasing the potential end of the franchise. 

The John Wick series began in 2014 with the first film, and since then, it has become something of a phenomenon as lead actor Keanu Reeves continues to nail the role of the titular character. 

While the narrative of John Wick: Chapter 4 are unknown, the movie is expected to continue where the third film left off, in which Wick was left for dead by Winston (Ian McShane). 

Stahelski told the publication that they “introduce a ton of new characters”, and that the movie has “a good conclusion to an emotional thread that we’ve already had.” 

John Wick 4 is set to release on March 24th, 2023.

First trailer for Netflix’s Interceptor is released 

Netflix has recently revealed the first-ever trailer for Matthew Reilly’s upcoming action feature, titled Interceptor, starring Elsa Pataky (Fast and Furious franchise). 

The film will follow Captain JJ Collins (Pataky), who becomes the final line of defence on a solo missile interceptor station. 

Reilly is a New York Times bestselling author who has written novels such as Scarecrow, The Army of Thieves, and The Tournament. Interceptor is his first entry into filmmaking. 

The forthcoming film is set to release onto the platform on June 3rd, 2022.
