With the release of James Gunn’s Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 in just two days, audiences around the world will be crying and laughing at the same time. The final installment of the film has been hailed as “a perfect end to the trilogy and best Marvel movie since ‘Endgame'” in early reactions.
In addition to wrapping up ongoing plotlines, the next movie will also introduce new characters like Adam Warlock and the High Evolutionary. Entertainment Weekly has released fresh character art to maintain the buzz.
In the first picture, Star-Lord is seen telling Gamora how he feels while they are both dressed in bright outfits reminiscent of 2001: Space Odyssey. In yet another scene, the hero is shown with “Swole Groot,” presumably surveying an imminent threat.
In yet another scene, Adam Warlock is depicted with a full gold paint job and looking away while Nebula approaches from behind. In another image, we see Nebula with her new bionic limb, which Gunn has indicated was a present from Rocket. Fans have been anticipating the introduction of Blurp, a fuzzy alien monster, since the very first trailer.
Making The Guardians Films: James Gunn’s Struggle
Gunn says, “Really, when Marvel first pitched me the idea of doing [the Guardians] as a film, I thought, ‘God, I just don’t know how to get into it.'” Gunn was skeptical when the Guardians of the Galaxy movie was revealed in 2014.
Furthermore, he admits that he struggled with Rocket, as the character might work on comic book pages but putting him on screen could make the film feel too cartoonish, like plopping “Bugs Bunny in the middle of the Avengers.”
The more he thought about the obnoxious raccoon, Rocket, the more he understood that Rocket was the “saddest little creature in the universe.” Rocket’s time alone was essential in his ability to unite the Guardians.
He continues, “I will always feel gratitude towards the character because of that.” “But I can identify with him, too. He’s just a frightened, insecure little guy with a short fuse who drives others away. I guess that’s how I felt quite often. There are probably a lot of people who can relate to that.
Which Actors Will Be Appearing In Guardians Of The Galaxy 3?
Author and filmmaker James Gunn returns for Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3. Star-Lord, Gamora, Drax, Kraglin, Nebula, Mantis, Rocket, and Groot all return in their roles played by Chris Pratt, Zoe Saldana, Dave Bautista, Sean Gunn, Karen Gillan, Pom Klementieff, Bradley Cooper, and Vin Diesel in Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3.
Maria Bakalova reprises her role as Cosmo the Spacedog. Will Poulter and Chukwudi Iwuji, new to the franchise, make their debuts in the characters of Adam Warlock and High Evolutionary, respectively, in this sequel?
The film’s summary states, “Our favorite group of outcasts is starting to look a little different these days.” To safeguard one of their own while defending the universe, Peter Quill must gather his squad around him while he continues to grieve for Gamora. Something that, if it doesn’t go well, could be the end of the Guardians as we know them.
Legendary Star-Lord Will Return
The future of the MCU is made clearer in Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3, but only if you stick around until the end of the credits. We return to Peter Quill, who appears to have made himself at home with his grandfather. The two are shown having breakfast cereal and discussing the lawn-mowing practices of their neighbors. In stark contrast to a rather ordinary scene, the title card proclaims, “The legendary Star-Lord will return.”
Yet where exactly? Until Avengers: Kang Dynasty in 2025, neither Star-Lord nor Chris Pratt has been included in any public plans by Marvel, and he does not appear to be a lock for any subsequent MCU productions.
Is Disney Plus planning a Star-Lord series or a solo feature for the character? Do they hope to use cameos in the future to promote other films or TV shows? You can make that happen. But until there is a formal announcement, we can’t know for sure.
