Is Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 really the last?

“I’m so grateful to Drax. I love him,” Bautista told the magazine. “But there is a relief [that it’s over]. It wasn’t all fun. It was hard to play that part. The makeup process knocked me down. And I just don’t know if I want Drax to be my legacy – it’s a silly performance and I want to do more dramatic things.
Whose is the bad guy Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3?
The villain this time is the High Evolutionary, an ancient cosmic villain who experiments on humans, aliens, and animals alike in an attempt to create the perfect race. Within the MCU, escape Peacekeeper star Chukwudi Iwuji will play the character.
“The production is so great. James and I are picking up where we left off,” Iwuji said Variety last February when discussing accession to the Guards follow-up. “[The character] is very different from Murn. It demands different things from me. The way James works with me is pretty much the same, which is that he trusts my choices – but at the same time when I give him a choice, he’s willing to move on. He forces me to push myself. This character needs an extremism that I didn’t really need to tap into Peacekeeper which I get into here. Our relationship remains the same, one of fun, mutual love and trust.”
