Thor: Ragnarok director Taika Watiti's name has been a popular choice among fans to take the reins of Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 from writer/director James Gunn who was sacked from the film past year. It made sense since Waititi brought comedy to the Thor franchise and seemed like a good fit. Waititi helmed Thor: Ragnarok, which had a comedic tone that was similar to Gunn's two Guardians of the Galaxy films.

"I promise there'll be a third movie, I don't know exactly what that's going to look like, but I know everyone on board is just eager to give the fans what they want and wrap up a trilogy in a meaningful way", he said.

"I didn't really", Waititi revealed when asked whether or not he talked with Marvel about the position.

Though the flick is in current need of a director, both Chris Pratt and Sean Gunn state that Guardians of the Galaxy 3 will happen.

The Rams earned the dubious distinction of being tied with the '72 Miami Dolphins for scoring the fewest points in a Super Bowl. Head coach Bill Belichick was spotted with his two-year-old granddaughter Blakely during his victory lap.

"We're still circling the city of Jericho, I like to say", he added.

"For me, that's James" film", Waititi elaborated.

"Going into something like that with his stamp all over his films, would be like going into someone's house and saying 'Hey, I'm your new dad, and this is how we make peanut butter sandwiches now.' It feels kind of awkward".

Currently, Guardians of the Galaxy 3 is off Marvel's slate. Gunn apologized for his old tweets and accepted Disney's decision. He has moved on to direct Suicide Squad 2 for Warner Bros.
