James Gunn confirms this iconic song won’t feature in ‘Guardians 3’

Director James Gunn has kept his two-way street dialogue with fans open over on Twitter and confirmed that one particular song will NOT be in Guardians of the Galaxy: Volume 3.

James Gunn has such an open and healthy back-and-forth with fans on Twitter, and the director/writer of the popular Marvel trilogy has confirmed that the hip-hop song “Baby Got Back” is definitely not in the mix to feature in the upcoming Guardians threequel.

A fan asked The Suicide Squad director if he could have a teaser for what songs will feature in Guardians 3, and unsurprisingly, Gunn kept his lips largely sealed. Fans followed up with more questions, and he gave us a few interesting bits of detail about the upcoming soundtrack.

Asked if he was still working on the Guardians soundtrack, Gunn confirmed it had been “done for a long time”.

After the successes and praise given to the previous films for their inclusion of music to not only fit the mood but tell the audience information about the character’s mindset, it’s not a surprise people want even a slight clue. Guardians 3 is set to be Gunn’s last directorial effort for the hit Marvel franchise. One of the first impressions people got on the first Guardians of the Galaxy film was that music was such a key ingredient of success. The first trailer featured Blue Suede’s “Hooked on a Feeling” which perfectly set the tone for the space adventure.

Guardians of the Galaxy: Volume 3 is set for a 2023 release, and will star all the major Guardians cast members, including Chris Pratt, Zoe Saldana, Dave Bautista, Vin Diesel, Bradley Cooper and Karen Gillan.
