Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 has managed to move the audience by bidding farewell to Marvel’s most eclectic team of superheroes. In this installment, the plot takes a darker and more mature turn while still maintaining its trademark humor.

Throughout the movie, many storylines come to a close, bidding farewell to several characters and welcoming new ones. Moreover, it’s not just the characters leaving; James Gunn bids farewell to the saga and Marvel as well in Volume 3. But which Guardians are we going to say goodbye to, at least for now?

Rocket’s ill-fated origin

The plot of the movie revolves around Rocket and his origins, revealing that he was created by the High Evolutionary through brutal genetic experiments. During those years, he found great support from other animals who, like him, were subjected to brutal experiments and torture. As the movie progresses, we discover that all of them were eventually killed by the High Evolutionary. This traumatic past leaves a lasting impact on Rocket, and he doesn’t find other friends until the arrival of the Guardians.

While Gunn unveils pieces of Rocket’s past, he is currently battling between life and death due to a powerful attack from Adam Warlock in Sapiencial. The Guardians must join forces to save Rocket’s life in what, unbeknownst to them, will be their last adventure together.

When are Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 released?

New guardians?

In one of the post-credits scenes that we can see at the end of Volume 3, we get a clear glimpse of the new roster that will form the new Guardians of the Galaxy. Led by Rocket, the team includes Groot, Kraglin, Cosmo, Adam Warlock, and Phyla Vell, a new addition that will surely generate much discussion in the future.

While none of the former members die, they ultimately decide to go their separate ways once and for all. To start, Peter Quill (or Star-Lord) decides to finally return to Earth to reunite with his family. On the other hand, the “new” Gamora rejoins the Ravagers and continues with her own plans. Mantis decides to be independent once and for all, while Drax and Nebula will take charge of the station in Sapiencial.

Now, the million-dollar question remains: will there be Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 4? As we made clear at the beginning, it won’t be under the direction of James Gunn. At the end of Volume 3, there was no announcement of the Guardians’ return. Instead, it is stated that Star-Lord will be the one to return “soon” to our screens. So, for now, we’ll have to wait and see.
