Gunn took on Twitter, and posted an image from the film’s set, revealing that there are lesser than six weeks left of the film’s shooting.

Gunn also noted in the same caption that they have not more than six weeks left to track who had been behind leaving the figures onset.
Just 6 weeks of filming left for GOTG 3
Gunn had announced his much-anticipated return for Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 way back in the year 2017. However, post a series of offensive comments resurfaced from old tweets from Gunn, the director was fired from the Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 movie. However, against all odds, James Gunn was re-hired for the film, though Gunn’s new commitments towards the DCEU resulted in the delay of the Guardians.
Here’s the tweet:
Day 24. BETH!! We have less than six weeks left of shooting. I am praying we find the culprit before then (but not too long before then so we keep getting new figures). #RickandMorty #GotGVol3 pic.twitter.com/fPsyIMtAVB

We don’t know much about the plot of Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 at this moment, the film takes place post the events of 2019’s Endgame. The film will see Chris Pratt returning as Peter Quill/Star-Lord with Dave Bautista as Drax the Destroyer, Bradley Cooper as Rocket, Vin Diesel as Groot, Karen Gillan will appear as Nebula and Pom Klementieff is set to appear as Mantis. Moreover, Zoe Saldaña will reprise the role of Gamora, although she’ll be seen playing a much-younger version of Gamora that made its way to the present in Endgame.

Apart from these returning actors, Will Poulter will also appear as Adam Warlock, who is an incredibly powerful being who was created to ultimately destroy the team.HBO Max’s Peacemaker series’ star Chukwudi Iwuji will also have an undisclosed role in the film.
It has been repeatedly said by Gunn that Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 will be the final film seeing this version of the Guardians team and the director has no plans, whatsoever, for another sequel. For his part, even Drax actor Dave Bautista has also indicated that the third installment of the franchise will be his final outing as Drax, although he didn’t rule out the possibility of someone else playing the character at a point in the coming future. Still, James Gunn has earlier revealed that no one could ever replace Bautista as Drax the Destroyer.
