After a long wait, Marvel Studios is back with another exciting superhero film, the threequel to The Guardians of the Galaxy Vol 3, as Peter Quill has reunited his team and is on his mission to defend the universe while still grieving the loss of Gamora. And this may be the last mission of Guardians if not successful.
In this blog, you will find everything about your favorite and most awaited trilogy so that we can determine how and why this would be the last ride for the Guardians.
What Is The Startling Back Story Behind The Guardians Of The Galaxy Vol 3?
Initially, the movie was meant to be outset early in the Marvel Cinematic Universe’s Phase 4, but the backstory behind the filming of Guardians is itself worthy – supposed to be planned to broaden the way for the forthcoming installments of the franchise. But things were not in favor when in 2018, former Walt Disney Studios chairman Alan Horn fired the director James Gunn because of some half-baked tweets. With echoes of the past rivalry between Marvel and DC Comics, Warner Bros. DC Studios came up with a game-changer offer for Gunn to write and direct The Suicide Squad, which eventually led him to become a co-CEO of DC Studios and the director of the next Superman movie.
After getting setbacks for such a long time, Marvel finally confirmed the return of James Gunn, who was the writer and director of the prior installments of Guardians, that he would rejoin the project after finalizing his ongoing project, The Suicide Squad, and eventually, the filming began in November 2021.
The film was shot between 2021 and 2022 and made its marketing debut at that year’s San Diego Comic-Con, where the fans first glanced at the highly anticipated cosmic adventure that indicated the release of GtoG 3 in 2023.
Who Will Be The Star Cast In Guardians Of The Galaxy Vol 3?
It’s high time that the original team finally rallied up with their last glimpse in the series, as James Gunn has mentioned several times that GtoG 3 will be ending the original team line-up and opening doors to the new heroes for Guardian of Galaxy 4.
Guardians of the Galaxy is the threequel of MCU phase 5; It’s marking the final quest with the current roster of team Guardians, including Chris Pratt as Peter Quill, reprising his role as Star-Lord, Rocket Raccoon (voiced by Bradley Cooper), Zoe Saldana as Gamora, Vin Diesel will be vocalizing as Groot and Karen Gillen as Nebula.
Reportedly Dave Bautista has confirmed his last appearance in the MCU project as Drax, and with reference to previous parts, a strong notion has been made about the potential deaths of some major characters in the upcoming part too. While various significant characters won’t be part of Gunn’s next MCU feature, other notable characters will replace them.
MCU newcomer Chukwudi Iwuji will be seen as the MCU’s new villain High Evolutionary along with Will Poulter’s debut as Adam Warlock and Sean Gunn as Kraglin, wearing Yondu’s techno Mohawk seemingly at ease with his departed boss’s Yaka Arrow, who may lead Ravager this time or maybe he plays as Guardian at this point. Though Sylvester Stalon’s inclusion is revealed as he will be reprising his role as Staker Ogord, how involved he would be is still up in the air. The return of Martinex, the android, is also confirmed with the same voice-over by Michael Rosenbaum.
Other newbies to the series include Nico Santos, Asim Chaudhry, Maria Bakalova, and Daniela Melchior. Reportedly Cosmo Space Dog, a beloved Marvel cosmic character, who showed up in the original Guardian as part of the collector’s menagerie, will be voice-over by Bakalova. However, the roles of other listed characters still need to be disclosed.
What Is the Story Plot Of The Guardians Of The Galaxy?
However, the storyline is yet to be confirmed, but here’s everything we know so far about GtoG 3 story plot, which is adapted from Roy Thomas Adam Warlock’s stories from the early 1970s. The core team of Guardians comprises five heroes from the first instance: Star-Lord, Gamora, Drax, Rocket, and Groot, while Kraglin, Yondu, Mentis, and Nebula joined afterward. This entire original team is the heart of the Guardian franchise.
Following the upsetting loss of Gamora, Peter rellies up his team, all set to embark on another mission across the universe. The plot maybe unfurls the High Evolutionary as the prime villain, who was initially a man named Herbart Edger, a scientist; his high evolution began while experimenting at Oxford, and he eventually became so obsessed with his project. As an antagonist, he views the creatures as disgusting and transforms them into the better version. With his obsession, he leaves the Earth with his mutants and travels to space, where his powers become supreme.
Among many developments, GtoG 3 will also, explore the origins of Rocket as San Diego Comic Con 2022 teaser has given a brief glimpse of him as a baby mutant. Rocket is one of the prominent characters of the MCU series, and his origins are yet to be explored; though the last part of Guardians bothered the scars on his back due to the experiments he underwent in the past, Gunn has confirmed that GotG 3 will uncover the backstory of Rocket, this may be the mainstay of Guardians of the Galaxy Vol 3. As the theory suggests, the dark origins of Rocket Raccoon are tied into the experiments conducted by one of the movie’s new major characters High Evolutionary.
When Is The Guardians Of The Galaxy Vol 3 Release Date?
Yet fans have waited beyond expectations, but soon they will see their favorite band of misfits fighting against the High Revolutionary, who wishes to create a perfect society. So, the wait is over; the Guardians of the Galaxy is set to premiere in theaters on May 5th, 2023.
