It's been a over 3 years since we last saw The Guardians Of The Galaxy together, but this time it seems to be an end to the Guardians franchise even if it continues after Vol 3. we shouldn’t expect it to still be headlined by its current cast.
Director Confirmed 'The End'
James Gunn, the director of Guardians of The Galaxy is set out to break hearts after what he said in a podcast, making it clear that the Vol 3. will be the last volume and we may not see the Guardians at all later.
Death Is Certain
“the last time people will see this team of Guardians.” The filmmaker went on to reveal that Vol. 3 is “big; it’s so, so big and dark, and different from what people might be expecting it to be.” - there will be someone dying for sure if the director himself says it's going dark.
Sequel Will Break The Cycle
“I just want to be true to the characters, the story and give people the wrap-up that they deserve for the story,” Gunn added. “That’s always a little bit scary; I’m doing my best.” The 3rd sequel is usually not that good always, but Gunn is devoted to break the cycle.
MCU Holds No Future For Guardians
Gunn’s comments seem to confirm what many Marvel fans have long suspected about Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3; that it will say goodbye to some or even all current members of the team. Unlike MCU’s biggest franchises, the Guardians of the Galaxy films aren’t opposed to permanently knocking off characters.
No Fun Without Rocket Raccoon
Though it is confirmed to see Thor with the Guardians this time along with the new villain Adam Warlock played by Will Poulter. There’s certainly a chance the film will both disband its current team and kickstart a new one, since Rocket Raccoon is going to be missed badly.
