Guardians of the Galaxy director James Gunn has confirmed that the upcoming third movie will be the longest in the series.

The anticipated sequel is due to finally hit the big screen this May, bringing back fan favourites including Star-Lord, Drax the Destroyer, Groot, Nebula and Rocket Raccoon for a final outing.

Gunn has now teased the runtime of Vol 3 after a fan on Instagram replied to a post the director shared of new character High Evolutionary (Chukwudi Iwuji) in the movie.

Asked about how long it will be, or whether it was longer than the first two, Gunn wrote: "It's longer than 1 & 2".

Last month, a new trailer premiered for the next movie, which teases an awkward reunion between Star-Lord and Gamora.

Dave Bautista also spoke to Digital Spy recently about filming his final scenes for Vol 3 as he said goodbye to his character Drax.

"I never really got the chance to say goodbye to everyone. There was never really that moment to kind of let it sit in, and that realisation of that closure. It hasn't really hit me yet," he said.

"I've been talking about it, but the emotions haven't hit me. And I know they will when I see the film, and when I see everyone on the press tour, and we're saying goodbye."

The star added: "It's a very bittersweet thing. I feel very accomplished and proud of what we did, and what we left behind.

"But also I'm leaving behind people that I've been on this journey with for 10 years, and they're family to me now. And I love them dearly."

Guardians of the Galaxy Vol 3 arrives in UK cinemas on May 3, and two days later in the US. Guardians of the Galaxy Vol 1 and Vol 2 and the Guardians of the Galaxy Holiday Special are streaming on Disney+.
