The ragtag group of intergalactic heroes are back to complete James Gunn’s trilogy. The film, which stars Chris Pratt, Zoe Saldana and Dave Bautista, is set for release on May 5, 2023.
It’s been five years since Gamora (Zoe Saldana) disappeared, but Peter Quill’s reunited the team to save Rocket Raccoon and protect the universe. But a new villain, Adam Warlock, will also join the fight.
Guardians of the Galaxy has come a long way since the original 2014 movie. It was a huge hit and helped establish characters like Peter Quill, Rocket Raccoon and Groot as Marvel superheroes.
The ragtag team is set to make one last appearance in Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3, which director James Gunn previously confirmed will be the final film in this trilogy.
Zoe Saldana is one of the most beloved actors in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. She portrayed Gamora in the first two Guardians of the Galaxy movies before Thanos sacrificed her for the soul stone in Avengers: Infinity War.
In the third film, she will be joined by several other familiar faces from the first films. Among them, Chris Pratt as Star-Lord/Peter Quill, Dave Bautista as Drax, Karen Gillan as Nebula, Vin Diesel as Groot, Pom Klementieff as Mantis and Sean Gunn (brother of director James Gunn) as Kraglin Obfonteri.
Dave Bautista has been playing Drax the Destroyer in Marvel films since the first movie, including this summer’s Thor: Love and Thunder. He’s also appearing in the Guardians of the Galaxy Holiday Special and will be a part of Vol. 3’s cast.
But it’s looking like the third Guardians film could be his last. In an interview with GQ, Bautista says he’s ready to move on from the role.
In the first two Guardians of the Galaxy films, Bradley Cooper portrayed the bad- mouthed weapon specialist Rocket. He’s since become one of the most prominent Marvel characters.
The third and final chapter of James Gunn’s trilogy is set to be released in 2023. Several members of the cast have already confirmed they’ll return, including Zoe Saldana as Gamora and Dave Bautista as Drax.
Vin Diesel has been the voice of Groot in the Marvel Cinematic Universe for a decade. He’s recorded the character in five films, including Guardians of the Galaxy and Avengers: Infinity War.
It’s no secret that Vin Diesel has a special script from writer and director James Gunn that tells him exactly what Groot is saying. So when Vin Diesel recently described Groot as “Alpha Groot,” fans were wondering if this was the next step in Groot’s evolution.
The upcoming Marvel Cinematic Universe movie marks the final adventure of the Guardians of the Galaxy team, led by Chris Pratt’s Peter Quill/Star-Lord. As such, the film will be an emotional one for many of the team members.
Karen Gillan, who plays Nebula in the film, recently took to Instagram to share her thoughts on Nebula and how she’s been able to grow with the character throughout the MCU. She says that she’s not sure what the future holds for her character, but she wants to thank director James Gunn for allowing her to play Nebula.
Pom Klementieff plays Mantis, the leader of Star-Lord’s (Chris Pratt) misfit crew. She has appeared in multiple Guardians of the Galaxy movies, including Vol. 2, and she has been praised by director James Gunn for her performance.
She also made her acting debut in the 2013 film Oldboy, a remake of the South Korean movie of the same name. After the film, she took up taekwondo, and has a purple belt as of 2014.
After six years, the Guardians are finally getting their much-anticipated climax. This time, Star-Lord (Chris Pratt), Gamora (Zoe Saldana), Drax (Dave Bautista), Nebula (Karen Gillan), Mantis (Pom Klementieff) and Rocket Racoon (voiced by Bradley Cooper) are all back together.
As well as the original cast, MCU newcomers Will Poulter and Chukwudi Iwuji will be joining the team. We also know that the film will feature Adam Warlock, an extremely powerful cosmic being created by Ayesha (Elizabeth Debicki) in Vol 2.
Stallone has been in the entertainment business for nearly half a century. He is most well known for bringing to life two iconic characters, Rocky Balboa and John Rambo.
He was born in New York City’s Hell’s Kitchen neighborhood and spent much of his childhood in boarding schools, where his parents fought frequently. During his teen years, he was expelled from school.
Michael Rosenbaum may be best known for his portrayal of Lex Luthor on Smallville, but he also has a lot of other talents. The actor is a singer, musician, podcaster and entrepreneur.
He recently announced that he will return as Martinex, another original Ravager in Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3. He took to social media to show off the trailer for the film.
