James Gunn may have jumped over to DC, but he’s not done with Marvel Studios just yet. Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 is set to come out this May, and the Super Bowl has managed to deliver us a new trailer.
Here’s the film’s description:
Still reeling from the loss of Gamora, Peter Quill rallies his team to defend the universe and one of their own – a mission that could mean the end of the Guardians if not successful.
The trailer basically expands on all the scenes we saw from the previous trailer, with more Adam Warlock as well as the main antagonist of the movie, the High Evolutionary. We also get some exchange between Quill and this variant of Gamora, and I have to admit I was surprised that the movie will be teasing a romance between Star-Lord and Nebula.
Though the Guardians franchise has always been more about action-comedy, it looks like the trailer is going to be delving into some very dark places for the characters, especially Rocket Raccoon. With Rocket mostly lashing out throughout the series, it’s going to be interesting to see him face-to-face with the cause of all his trauma.
With this movie set to end the story of this iteration of the Guardians, I’m excited for the film to set-up another group to take on the mantle. I have a feeling that Will Poulter’s Adam is going to be the leader, but maybe some old faces can still return—like Mantis or Groot.
Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 is set to release in cinemas on May 5.
