Baby rocket, space dog and the master of evolution: Gunn reveals Guardians of the Galaxy 3 at Comic-Con

The director also showed the sweet trailer for his series My name is Groot.

Marvel’s Return to San Diego Comic-Con, after a three-year absence, was eagerly awaited by comic book fans. And the least we can say is that Kevin Feige and his team were not stingy with revelations! In addition to revealing the titles of all the upcoming blockbusters so faron step 6 in 2026 shared the head of the studio the first trailer for Black Panther: Wakanda Foreverconfirmed the publication date of Bladewho is currently filming with Mahershala Ali, and he also gave an update on the future of Guardians of the Galaxy. The director of the trilogy, James Gunn, thus welcomed the stars of the third volume, expected in theaters on May 3, 2023, on the Hall H stage, revealing a few artists in passing. He then mentioned his main source of inspiration for the end of his saga, before showing two trailers: the one of series My name is Grootwhich consists of short films dedicated to the guardians’ hero tree and will air on August 10 on Disney+, and that of Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3.

Guardians of the Galaxy 3: ‘This is the last time we’ll see this team’, warns James Gunn

The latter was not put online by Marvel in the process, unlike the trailer for Black Panther 2because Gunn would like to polish some special effects before showing it to a wider audience. But we can still preserve some important elements in this presentation. First and foremost, Rocket Raccoon will be at the heart of this sequel. The director’s favorite character, we learned a little more about him in the second opus that hit theaters in 2017, and there he will really be the central character in Flight. 3. In particular, this sequel will return to its sad creation, where Rocket is born from painful genetic manipulation. “The first time I heard about him I thought it was a bit ridiculous.acknowledges the screenwriter and director. Also, when we discussed it with the producers at Marvel, I told them: “No matter how ‘fat’ it is, it can make a billion dollars, right? So screw it, call Bradley Cooper and let’s make this funny movie!’ (laughs) It’s a talking raccoon… But where does it come from? It must be the saddest creature in the universe… So the movie is going to be about it. Partially.”

Another key element in this third opus, the arrival of Chukwudi Iwuji (already in his series Peacemaker) to Master of Evolution. The actor arrived in costume to show the public how he would look in the film. “Call me sir!”, he had fun on stage at Comic-Con. A memorable arrival to the saga, reminiscent of Karen Gillan in Nebula: the actress had announced her employment by removing her wig on the same stage in Hall H, thus revealing her shaved head to tease the release of the first opus in 2014. Note that the Master of Evolution will not be the only villain of Guardian 3, Will Poulter has previously been announced in the casting to play Adam Warlock. The director finally revealed it “Maria Bakalova would double Cosmo the dog of espaaaaace” by welcoming the actress Borate 2 on the stage. He has since added Twitter that he had chosen a female voice for a male character to pay tribute to Laïka, the dog who died in space in 1957.

Finally, James Gunn confirmed to the public that this Flight. 3 would mark the end of the Guardians of the Galaxy team as we know it. Will they all disappear? Or only a part of them? Answer in May 2023 in the cinema…
