Guardians of the Galaxy Holiday Special's Original Song Lands on Billboard Charts

Marvel Studios has been killing it with their phase four releases and the addition of their Special Presentation's has been quite the treat for fans. First they released a Halloween-themed Special Presentation with Werewolf by Night, and now they have released a Christmas special with The Guardians of the Galaxy Holiday Special. Directed by James Gunn, The Guardians of the Galaxy Holiday Special marks his return to directing Marvel Studios projects after he was fired due to controversial tweets. Gunn will also release Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 next year and then move on to a very different job at DC Studios. In the meantime, his Holiday Special has given the director another accolade– charting on Billboard. Gunn reacted to the news on Twitter and even revealed that Kevin Bacon had charted for his song as well.

"It's a real dream come true to have co-written a charting song. cc @rhettmiller @Old97s #GuardiansoftheGalaxyHolidaySpecial," Gunn continued. "And that's not the only charting tune from the #GuardiansoftheGalaxyHolidaySpecial – seems @kevinbacon & the Olds have one as well!"

What is Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 About? 

Marvel Studios describes Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 as follows: "Peter Quill, still reeling from the loss of Gamora, must rally his team to defend the universe along with protecting one of their own. A mission that, if not completed successfully, could quite possibly lead to the end of the Guardians"

What is director James Gunn Doing Next?

Gunn and Peter Safran began their jobs as Co-CEO's of DC Studios at the beginning of the month and it's safe to say that the future of DC is looking bright. When the duo was announced by the new Warner Bros. Discovery boss, they released a statement on their excitement for the job.

"We're honored to be the stewards of these DC characters we've loved since we were children," Gunn and Safran added in a joint statement. "We look forward to collaborating with the most talented writers, directors, and actors in the world to create an integrated, multilayered universe that still allows for the individual expression of the artists involved. Our commitment to Superman, Batman, Wonder Woman, Aquaman, Harley Quinn, and the rest of the DC stable of characters is only equaled by our commitment to the wonder of human possibility these characters represent. We're excited to invigorate the theatrical experience around the world as we tell some of the biggest, most beautiful, and grandest stories ever told."

The most recent Marvel Studios film to hit theaters was Black Panther: Wakanda Forever. In the sequel, Queen Ramonda (Angela Bassett), Shuri (Letitia Wright), M'Baku (Winston Duke), Okoye (Danai Gurira) and the Dora Milaje (including Florence Kasumba), fight to protect their nation from intervening world powers in the wake of King T'Challa's death. As the Wakandans strive to embrace their next chapter, the heroes must band together with the help of War Dog Nakia (Lupita Nyong'o) and Everett Ross (Martin Freeman) and forge a new path for the kingdom of Wakanda.  

Introducing Tenoch Huerta as Namor, king of a hidden undersea nation, the film also stars Dominque Thorne, Michaela Coel, Mabel Cadena and Alex Livanalli. Black Panther: Wakanda Forever is exclusively in theaters now!
