LOS ANGELES — Marvel’s continuing space opera “Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2” has yet to hit theaters, but plans are already in the works for the third installment.

On Monday, James Gunn announced on Facebook he would be returning to write and direct “Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3.” Gunn wrote and directed the first and second “Guardians” films.

The franchise stars Chris Pratt, Zoe Saldana, and Dave Bautista.

In his post, Gunn said that “Guardians 3” will come after 2018’s “Avengers: Infinity War” and conclude the story of this iteration of Guardians of the Galaxy, helping to launch Marvel’s next 10 years.

Gunn is well-known in Hollywood for writing the scripts for the horror movies “Dawn of the Dead” and “Slither.” His latest credit is for writing “The Belko Experiment,” which is currently in theaters.

“Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2” hits theaters on May 5.
