The casting director did not give up and when he was able to convince him, he discovered that director James Gunn no longer wanted to see him and was talking to other actors (Joel Edgerton, Jack Huston, Jim Sturgess, Eddie Redmayne and Lee Pace, among others) .
"I was really happy when I finally got them together and it was, honestly, one of those 'eureka' moments that we talk about casting, where everything seems right and we know it's the right decision. He stood up for me after 10 seconds and said 'He's the guy', "he recalled.
"Guardians of Galaxy 3" plunged into uncertainty when Disney fired James Gunn in July 2018 because of controversial old comments on social networks.
When the studio went back and contracted again in March, the project went into pre-production and the start of the shooting is scheduled for February 2021, when the director finishes making the sequel to "Suicide Squad".
The premiere should fit into one of the dates Marvel booked in 2022: February 18, May 6 and July 29 (this is most likely because of the previous films).
