We are not ready for Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3. The Guardians films, in my humble opinion, represent Marvel at their very best. They are fun, emotional, colourful and silly and Gunn’s storytelling has been on point so far, so we have no reason to suspect he won’t knock Guardians 3 out of the park.
And from the looks of it, we will all be crying in the cinemas while watching Guardians of the Galaxy Vol.3 as, like it says in the trailer, it’s time for our heroes to face the music.
Watch the trailer here.
The trailer shows the Guardians going up against Adam Warlock, played by Will Poulter, and exploring new worlds. A highlight is Drax knocking an alien child out by throwing a ball at them.
We also see Gamora back in action. For those unfamiliar with the intricacies of the MCU, our main version of Gamora died in Avengers: Infinity War, but another Gamora, from another time, came to our present. It all makes sense, I promise, but it’s another example of just how intertwined and rather confusing the MCU has become.
As hinted by Gunn many times, it looks like Guardians 3 will also delve deeper into Rocket the Raccoon’s tragic backstory. Rocket seems to be the emotional core of the film and we fear this might be the end of the line for him as we see Chris Pratt’s Star-Lord and Mantis weep in anguish.
Guardians 3 will also be James Gunn’s last Marvel film, as he’s busy planning out the future of DC Studios. Gunn was recently appointed co-CEO of the Warner Bros. owned studio along with Peter Safran.
We’re sad there won’t be any more Guardians films from Gunn, but we’re excited to see how he concludes his trilogy. Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 is in cinemas 5 May, 2023.
