With writer/director James Gunn having long confirmed a third Guardians of the Galaxy movie, the charming Gunn has revealed just when we can expect to see the final piece of his Guardians trilogy.
Taking to his Twitter account, a 2020 release has been seemingly confirmed:

Marvel Studios has already got three untitled pictures booked in for 2020, with the dates of said films set as May 1st, August 7th, and November 6th. Logic dictates that one of these dates has now been nabbed by Star Lord and Co. for Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3.
James Gunn has already gone on record to say that Guardians 3 will be the final movie for this current incarnation of the Guardians team, and it’s believed to be a further launching point for Marvel’s Cosmic Universe. Of course, it’s not been ruled out that there will indeed be more Guardians efforts, just that if they happened then they’d involve a different line-up to Star-Lord, Gamora, Drax, Rocket Racoon, and Groot.
Up next for the Guardians, of course, is this May’s Avengers: Infinity War. That movie will see the ragtag bunch – including Nebula and Mantis - team-up with Earth’s Mightiest Heroes as Thanos finally steps out of the shadows. As well as that, the Guardians are also expected to be a part of May 2019’s Infinity War follow-up.
