The phase 5 of the Marvel Cinematic Universe started hesitantly with Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania. A film that in general was not enthusiastic, and that has led to controversies such as the precariousness of Marvel’s digital effects, the dismissal of number 3 victoria alonso and later the arrest of Jonathan Majors. the actor of Creed III had officially debuted here as Kang the Conquerorwith the idea of ​​acting as a recurring villain in the style Thanos in what was to come of the multiverse saga.

Now there is only uncertainty about his future, and by extension that of Marvel. But for now let’s stop at Guardians of the Galaxy Volume 3and what its end implies for the franchise of Kevin Feige. Has Gunn opted for tragedy for his ending, or on the contrary has he wanted to leave our hearts warm for the remains?

Rupture in Wisdom

[A partir de aquí SPOILERS de Guardianes de la Galaxia Volumen 3]

In general, we would say the latter. In Guardians of the Galaxy 3 none of the protagonists die. Until well into the third act we fear that rocket (voice of Bradley Cooper) succumbs, and in fact it is his salvation (in terms of obtaining a code that manipulates the off switch of his heart) that determines the plot of this film. star-lord (chris pratt) and the others make it, luckily, so that a revived Rocket can settle accounts with his past by facing the High Evolutionary (Chukwudi Iwuji).

The High Evolutionary is its creator: a megalomaniac scientist obsessed with building the perfect society by experimenting with living beings. Living beings that he does not hesitate to get rid of when he wants to advance in his experiment, as we observe in all its horrible scale when he decides to destroy an entire planet sponsored by him, the Counter-Earth. The Guardians decide to put an end to their crimes, but Rocket (who after a walk through the laboratory where he was born decides to proudly bear the name of Rocket Raccoon, “Rocket Raccoon”) decides at the last minute to spare his life. Because that’s what a Guardian.

Many things happen at this climax. Gamora (Zoe Saldana) re-strengthen ties with the Guardians while Drax, Mantis and nebula (Dave Bautista, Pom Klementieff and Karen Gillan) attempt to save the other experiments locked in the High Evolutionary’s ship. There enter both mutant animals and mysterious children, among which one such Phyla Vell. The battle ends up coming Sapiential (Headquarters of the Guardians, as we saw in the Christmas special), where Kraglin and Cosmo the Space Dog (Sean Gunn and the voice of Maria Bakalova) help the Guardians finish off the villain’s forces.

When it is time to leave the ship, which is about to explode, Peter is late to keep his walkman, and is about to die in the vacuum of space. But luckily Adam Warlock (Will Poulter), who has been torn between his loyalties throughout the film, takes flight and rescues him. Everyone is safe and sound in Wisdom, but that doesn’t mean the Guardians will stick together from now on.

We witness an emotional separation, depending on the concerns of each character. Peter has understood during the film how disoriented he is, and how much this has affected him when trying to resume his relationship with Gamora: a Gamora who is no longer the one he fell in love with. So he decides to reconnect with the roots from which he has been fleeing for years, opting to return to Earth and look for his grandfather.

Gregg Henry isJason Quill

His grandfather, Jason Quill (interpreted by gregg henry) appeared in the very first scene of the Guardians of the Galaxy original, back there 2014. She was the one who guided him to the hospital room where his daughter (and Peter’s mother) Meredith Quill (Laura Haddock) was dying. Young Peter was unable to bear the pain, and he fled the hospital leaving his grandfather and mother behind him. It was then that he abducted Yondu’s ship (Michael Rooker) and the story we know began.

The last sequence of guardians 3 is a montage to the rhythm of Dog Days Are Over of Florence + The Machine (first song after 2000 that plays in the trilogy) where we see what each Guardian does after the battle. In Peter’s case, he effectively returns to Earth, looks for his grandfather’s house, and embraces him in a reunion that has been decades in the making.

It’s not goodbye, it’s “see you soon”

So much for Star-Lord. Gamora leaves with the ravagers giving us to understand that there he has found a new family, an alternative to the Guardians and led by starhawk (Sylvester Stallone). Nebula and Drax stay in Wisdom with the purpose of taking care of the children of the High Evolutionary’s ship. Nebula’s decision is due, on the other hand, to the happy discovery of what the true destiny of her friend Drax is: she is not The destroyerhe is just a father who was looking for someone to take care of (remember that his family was killed by Thanos).

Mantis, in tune with Quill, needs a journey of self-discovery, so she also leaves Wisdom: she accompanied by the mutant animals with whom she became good friends on board the ship. The only ones who seem willing to continue acting as Guardians of the Galaxy are Rocket and groot (voice of Vin Diesel), an attitude that we see what gives rise to in one of the post-credit scenes: there it turns out that Rocket is the new captain succeeding Quill, and that the new Guardians are in addition to Rocket Kraglin, Cosmo the Space Dog, Adam Warlock and Phyla Vell .

Guardians of the Galaxy 3 It concludes, then, with the separation of this endearing galactic family, as well as with a look at what it may have become for the future. Gunn may have jumped ship, but he has been concerned with leaving options for us to have more guardians in future instances of Marvel.
