A new Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 image gives a better look at Nebula’s new arm and showcases the team’s comic-accurate uniforms. Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 will end the trilogy developed by director James Gunn, serving as the final chapter for both this iteration of the Guardians and for Gunn’s involvement with Marvel Studios. Gunn has recently been appointed one of the new co-CEOs of DC Studios and will move from the Marvel Cinematic Universe to planning the new slate of DC movies and shows. For his last MCU outing, Gunn is looking to deliver a gut-wrenching experience to audiences, as the emotional first trailer for Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 showed.
USA Today has revealed a new look at Nebula’s state-of-the-art arm and the new team uniforms in Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3. First glimpsed in the movie’s trailer, Nebula has a new cybernetic arm, and it’s on display as she confers with fellow teammates Star-Lord, Mantis, and Drax. Additionally, all four Guardians are sporting their new uniforms, taken directly from the pages of Marvel Comics. Check out the image below:
What To Expect From James Gunn’s Guardians Of The Galaxy Vol. 3
The Guardians of the Galaxy franchise is one of the most beloved in the entire MCU, with Gunn’s exploration of the found family concept, mixed in with the perfect balance between humor and dread, crafting a unique series. The Guardians of the Galaxy Holiday Special could be considered a peaceful prologue, as the recent special released on Disney+ gave audiences one last feel-good adventure with the Guardians before the team sets off on what should be their last outing. Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 rumors have pointed to at least one member of the Guardians not living through the end of the movie.
While there is currently no official word on the matter, nor should there be as Marvel Studios wants to keep the plot twists of the movie a secret until release, two characters have been at the forefront of fan theories regarding the major death: Rocket and Drax. Gunn has talked for years about how Rocket will be the central point of the movie, and the first Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 trailer teased that by revealing the first look at a young Rocket; it’s been confirmed the movie will explore his origins. Rocket was experimented on by the High Evolutionary (Chukwudi Iwuji), the movie’s villain, when he was young. It’s possible that Rocket’s past and present collide as the character faces off against his biggest foe and dies, providing Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 with a climatic moment.
Drax’s case is a different beast, as it is more directly involved with the fact that actor Dave Bautista has publicly declared that Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 will be his last time playing the role. Following Bautista’s latest movie release, Glass Onion: A Knives Out Mystery, the actor confirmed he will be moving on from the MCU. With Gunn and Bautista leaving, if the Guardians continue in the MCU, it will be with a new iteration of the team, possibly including Will Poulter’s Adam Warlock, who will debut in the MCU during Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3.
