Guardians Of The Galaxy 3 Brings Back James Gunn As Director/Writer

Despite rumors to the contrary, James Gunn will both write and direct a third movie in the Guardians of the Galaxy series.
Gunn confirmed the news on his Facebook page, dispelling rumors that he would not return in the same capacity for a third movie he had already confirmed. As he prepares to begin promoting the upcoming Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2, Gunn said he knows the question he'll receive most is about whether he'll direct the sequel.
“Before I was able to honestly answer this, I needed to know it was, in my heart, what I truly felt called to do,” Gunn wrote. “There is a history in Hollywood of haphazard endings to trilogies, and I didn't want to become a part of that dishonorable tradition of pretending the third one doesn't exist.

More New Xbox One Features On The Way, Including A Party Chat Overlay

Microsoft recently released a significant Xbox One update, and already it's sharing details about more new features that are on the way soon.
A new Xbox Wire post details some of the features that will arrive for Xbox Insider members “in the coming weeks.” This includes an expansion of the Arena feature to again allow players to create and participate in their own Killer Instinct tournaments, in addition to those for World of Tanks, Smite, and Halo Wars 2.
The aforementioned Xbox One update did away with the system's Snap mode, leaving an Achievement tracker as the lone form of multitasking offered by the system. Similar to that, Microsoft plans to add a party overlay feature, which pops up when someone in your party speaks so that you can easily see who is talking. You're free to customize the positioning and transparency of the pop-up, which you can get a glimpse of in the image above.
Other minor additions include an option to share Looking for Group posts to your act..
