Guardians of the Galaxy: Holiday Special it serves as a bridge between the present day of the group of heroes and their next film. A preview in which the reality of each character is addressed, how much they have changed (or not) is evaluated, and different bridges are built in relation to the future of this franchise. There are also a series of striking facts that opened up different questions. One of them is how Nebula was able to get the arm of bucky barnessomething James Gunn addressed on Twitter.
This joke has a history. In Avengers: Infinity WarRocket asks the Winter Soldier how much money he would take to sell him his arm. Bucky does not comment, but it is established, within the Marvel Cinematic Universe, that Rocket is interested in those types of limbs (there were also references to some clothing). In Guardians of the Galaxy: Holiday Special this context is revived.
The Marvel and Disney Christmas special focuses on resolving one of the pending issues in the history of Peter Quillinterpreted by chris pratt, who has spent two movies and a few cameos trying to find a family, to be surrounded by loved ones. Aware of this, Drax (dave bautista) and Mantis (Pom Klementieff) travel to Earth to find a gift for Star Lord. He is not the only one who receives a present, because Rocket is recognized with what he wanted so much. The fact leaves the question on the table: how did Nebula get Bucky’s arm?

Director of Guardians of the Galaxy: Holiday Special, James Gunn, who will also direct the third film, dropped by on Twitter and addressed the previous question regarding the gift to Rocket, Nebula and the Winter Soldier. His comment came in response to a question from user @scarletbat_, who asked: “James, how did Nebula get Bucky’s arm?”
“She took a trip to Earth and ripped it out of her body because she felt so Christmassy.”
The answer, although it leaves open some questions in relation to the Winter Soldier, solves one of the pending that Rocket had within the Marvel Cinematic Universe. It should be remembered that, in that scene where he asks how much it could cost him, he adds that sooner or later he will get it. It is estimated that between Avengers: Infinity War Y Guardians of the Galaxy: Holiday Special at least five years have passed within the narrative.
James Gunn’s answer, although it can be interpreted as a humorous detail, is actually true to Nebula’s profile. He is a character who does not usually express too many emotions, who can be very rough when relating to others. So, when asked if it would really be possible for her to rip off Bucky Barnes’s arm, the feeling is that yes, he would have no problem doing it if he deems it necessary.
Guardians of the Galaxy: Holiday Special It is available on the Disney+ platform.
