The latter was not put online by Marvel in the process, unlike the trailer for Black Panther 2with Gunn wanted to polish some special effects before showing it to a wider audience. But we can still retain some important elements of this presentation. First of all, Rocket Raccoon will be central to this sequel. Favorite character of the director, we learned a little about him in the second opus released in theaters in 2017, and there, he will be the central character of Flight. 3. This sequel will return specifically to his tragic creation, Rocket born from painful genetic manipulation. “The first time I heard about him, I thought it was funny.admitted the screenwriter and director. Also, when we discussed it with the Marvel producers, I told them: ‘No matter how ‘crazy’ it is, it will make a billion dollars, right? So fuck it, call Bradley Cooper and let’s make this funny movie!’ (laughs) It’s a talking raccoon… But where did it come from? It has to be the saddest creature in the universe… So that, the movie will talk about that. In part.”

Another important element of this third opus, is the arrival of Chukwudi Iwuji (already in his series Peacemaker) to the Master of Evolution. The actor arrived in costume, to show the public what he looks like in the film. “Call me sir!”, he enjoyed the stage at Comic-Con. A memorable arrival in the saga reminiscent of Karen Gillan in Nebula: the actress announced her hiring by removing her wig on the same stage in Hall H, thus revealing her shaved head to teaser the release of the first opus, in 2014. Note that the Master of Evolution is not the only villain in Guardian 3, Poulter who was previously announced in the casting to play Adam Warlock. Finally, the director revealed that “Maria Bakalova doubles as Cosmo the dog of espaaaaace” by welcoming the actress to Borat 2 in the landscape. He added since Twitter that he chose a female voice for a male character to pay tribute to Laïka, the dog who died in space in 1957.

Finally, James Gunn has publicly confirmed that it is Flight. 3 will mark the end of the Guardians of the Galaxy team as we know it. Will they all disappear? Or just a part of them? Answer May 2023 in cinema…
