Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3
It’s almost here: the last installment of the beloved Guardians of the Galaxy franchise. Director James Gunn’s first installment of the series, Guardians of the Galaxy, was scored by audiences as one of the most-beloved movies in the Marvel universe. His second installment, Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2, was also very well received. However, Vol. 3 will be the conclusion to some of your favorite characters’ stories . . . Yes, Star-Lord, Mantis, Gamora, Drax, Nebula, Rocket Racoon, and even Groot won’t have their own movies anymore, but we can hope that they’ll live on in future movies and series in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. The reason being is that Director James Gunn has been named as the CEO of Warner Bros, heading the DCU’s (DC Comics, Marvel’s main competitor) next moves. Oh, how the turntables have—nevermind.
Because of this, there have been rumors that Marvel gave Gunn some more creative control, hopefully leading to some unique characteristics of a Marvel movie (let’s be honest, they all kind of have the same plot line). Additionally, according to trailers, the movie will focus on Rocket Racoon’s (voiced by Bradley Cooper) tragic backstory; think vivisection, animal cruelty, and PETA-worthy complaints. So, animal lovers beware: make sure to bring tissues. On a brighter side, this demented part of the movie may bring about some of the best comedy we’ve seen so far. We can only cross our fingers . . .
Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 will be released in Theaters May 5.
