On May 5th we travel to space to the rhythm of good music with ‘Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3’. James Gunn, mastermind behind all Guardian projects, assembles the gang on a cosmic adventure that will mark the end of these unconventional heroes for the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Although we still do not know what fate awaits each member of the crew, both Gunn and part of the cast have explained on more than one occasion that the movie is the end of the Guardians as we know them.
More than one of the Guardians may die in this installment, but there is an extra concern for Rocket, a character who since his appearance in ‘Guardians of the Galaxy’ has stolen the hearts of a large number of fans. In general, the film’s trailer conveys a feeling of ending, but Rocket’s dialogue and scenes give more of a farewell feeling than the rest. As if the trailer weren’t enough to worry about the raccoon, a new synopsis of ‘Volume 3’ confirms that, although we don’t know what will happen to Rocket, we will suffer for him no matter what:“In Marvel Studios’ ‘Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3,’ our beloved band of misfits adjust to life in Wisdom. But it isn’t long before their lives are upended by the fallout from Rocket’s troubled past. Peter Quill, still reeling from the loss of Gamora, must rally his team around him on a dangerous mission to save Rocket’s lifea mission that, if not completed successfully, could spell the end of the Guardians as we know them.”
In ‘Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3’, humor and heart are combined to tell a space odyssey that introduces the powerful Adam Warlock (Will Poulter), whose appearance has been expected since the post-credits scene of ‘Vol. 2’; and the High Evolutionary (Chukwudi Iwuji), a villain who will wreak havoc on the Guardians. This character is a fundamental piece of Rocket’s past through which his origin will be toldso it would not be strange that he had a special interest in the raccoon.
Chris Pratt (Peter Quill), Zoe Saldaña (Gamora), Sean Gunn (Kraglin), Pom Klementieff (Mantis), Karen Gillan (Nébula), Dave Bautista (Drax), Vin Diesel (Groot) and Bradley Cooper (Rocket) resume their papers from previous deliveries in the last Marvel Studios movie directed and written by James Gunn, at least in the short/medium term.
About the villain
The villain of ‘Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3’ is a High Evolutionary, a character who experiments with humans, aliens, animals and all kinds of beings in order to create the perfect race. Chukwudi Iwuji, in charge of giving him life, already worked with James Gunn before ‘Guardians’ in ‘The Peacemaker’, a DC series created, written and directed by Gunn in which he plays agent Murn. One year ago, Iwuji speak with Variety of the differences between both characters: “(High Evolutionary) is very different from Murn. He requires different things of me. The way James works with me is more or less the same, he trusts my choices but at the same time when i give him a choice he is ready to take it even further. He is making me outdo myself. This character needs an extremism that he really didn’t need in ‘The Peacemaker.’ Our relationship remains the same, one of happiness, mutual love and trust.”
‘Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3’ premieres In theaters May 5.
