The trailer for Guardians of the Galaxy Volume 3 It came almost as a surprise to move the fans. For one thing, it wasn’t just an in-depth and exciting look at the close of the trilogy. Also, it was a tour of what seems to be a much more elaborate argument and dark than previous installments. As if that wasn’t enough, the trailer made it clear that there will at least be some painful goodbyes. Which? The question was left unanswered in the middle of the Easter Eggs series that the movie look showed with special care.
Of course, the film is a work of special importance to the Marvel Cinematic Universe. As announced by director James Gunn himself and several of his actors, it is a definitive closure for the subfranchise. Which also makes it clear that it will be a breaking story in the great narrative of the franchise. Beyond the possible deaths or even plot revelations, is the fact that it will be Gunn’s last movie for Marvel. At least, it is what is supposed, now that he became the visible head of the DC Extended Universe.
Perhaps for this reason, the trailer was especially eloquent and forceful in making clear everything you can expect from this closure. One expected and that, without a doubt, will become a moving experience for a large part of the fans. We leave you the most striking easter egg that the progress showed. that, moreover, They report more or less clearly what can be expected from the expected production.
New clothes for the superhero team
It may seem like a minor detail, but the trailer showed that the Guardians of the Galaxy have what appears to be a specific uniform. It is not a coincidence or a merely aesthetic detail. In fact, the attire of the characters is a direct reference to the work of Andy Lanning and Dan Abnett. In the origin comicthe characters wear specific clothing, which makes them a compact and specific team.
Already in the first two films, the different changes in the way the Guardians of the Galaxy dressed, showed crucial moments in their history. But this time, paying tribute to his first appearance in Marvel Super-Heroes # 18 of January 1969, is a celebration of his long tradition at the publisher. Perhaps, also, the most symbolic farewell that the film can offer its beloved characters.
New music that talks about a temporary evolution and the character of the team
For the Guardians of the Galaxy sub-franchise, music has always been an essential way to analyze its characters. From the music cassette and classic Walkman from the first film, to Kraglin’s gift of a Zune to Peter Quill. How the soundtrack interacts with the story is critical to understanding the subtext of the story. Even the most elaborate parts of his argument.
It does not seem to be a coincidence that Gunn has incorporated the song In The Meantime from Spacehog, in the trailer. An addition that breaks the musical theme of the film and takes it to entirely new places. After all, released in the year 1996, it is the most recent Guardians of the Galaxy song to date.
Like another vintage James Gunn needle drop, this song was released in 1996, making it the newest Guardians song in the MCU to date.
Counter-Earth’s debut in the Marvel Cinematic Universe
Counter — Earth is an old acquaintance for Marvel fans. The planet, similar to Earth, but inhabited by anthropomorphic hybrids, has been part of a good number of stories in the editorial. In fact, the bizarre site has had at least four versions throughout the history of the comic book world.
It is not very clear, which of these variations is the one shown in the trailer. But one thing is obvious. This is Gunn’s affectionate nod to one of the most curious locations in the Marvel Universe as mythology.
Chukwudi Iwuji’s High Evolutionary
This villain, who is considerably feared in the comics, comes to the Marvel Cinematic Universe at the hands of Gunn. Which means, more than likely, Dr. Nathaniel Essex, aka Mister Sinister, is more than just an antagonist. Psychopathic and fearsomely cruel, he will surely take part in one of the most complicated and painful points of the plot. Rocket Raccoon is one of the character’s cruel experiments.
Also, the presence of the figure shows that Rocket’s origin story is a central part of the plot. Which is likely, it also leads to the closure of his narrative arc in the trilogy. As Gunn himself insisted, his return to Marvel was aimed at “complete” the story of the beloved genetically altered raccoon. In fact, in the trailer, a shot of the character can be seen as a baby, which makes it clear which points the script will explore. At the same time, there was a brief glimpse of Lady Lylla, an intelligent otter who in the comic is Rocket’s love interest.
Adam Warlock is visiting the Guardians of the Galaxy Universe
The trailer also showed the first official image of Will Poulter as Adam Warlock. Which clears up any doubt as to how the character would be approached in the plot. As it will be remembered, the arrival of the powerful figure was announced in one of the multiple post-credit scenes of Guardians of the Galaxy Volume Three. Until now, there were no images of the actor playing the all-powerful creature.
But the trailer showed it in all its glory. He also makes it clear that he is a caring character and that, as he could not be otherwise, he will go after the superhero team.
The possible death of Rocket Raccon and Drax
For the past few months, there has been speculation that at least two characters from the sub-franchise will die in the film. The trailer seems to prove that the rumors are true and that it is most likely Rock Raccon and Drax. Which, of course, would close one way or another the long journey of the Guardians of the Galaxy through the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
From a close-up of Peter Quill’s face in the middle of a dramatic scene, to what appears to be a sequence with Rocket on another plane of existence. The truth is that it seems that at least one member of his beloved team would die in his arms. Already months ago, there were suspicions that in addition to the possibility of a heroic death for Rocket, there would also be a similar one for Drax. Even the actor Dave Bautista he emotionally said goodbye to his character in an Instagram post. In the short text, she appreciated the opportunity and made it clear that she would not return to play him in a future installment of Guardians of the Galaxy.
So the vision of both Quill with his face contorted by crying, as well as what appear to be drops of blood, herald some tragedies. Something that would make Guardians of the Galaxy Volume Three a direct and moving closure to his story.
