Generally, the trailers of Marvel movies “hide” some clues about the story that awaits us on the big screen. It is clear, yes, that not all of them end up being reality, since the production company led by Kevin Feige has allowed itself to deceive the audience with certain advances. Nevertheless, it is possible that the first trailer of Guardians of the Galaxy 3 really have the anticipation of a tragedy. Specifically, the death of a character quite dear to the fandom.
Currently, after the multiple adventures that the space warriors have experienced both in their movies and in the crossovers With other superheroes, it’s hard to think that Marvel would dare kill someone. However, because Guardians of the Galaxy 3 intends to close the history of the group and incidentally say goodbye to James Gunn’s career in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, it should not be surprising that we have to say goodbye to a member.
Who is it about? Well, of the very rocket. Before delving into the evidence that the trailer leaves about his possible death, we must remember that the narrative of Guardians of the Galaxy 3 will be focused, almost entirely, on that character. The story tries to tell us the origins of the raccoonwhich is why the adorable Baby Rocket will have a brief appearance.
Obviously, he will also face his past, and this is where the name of his creator, the villain, arises. High Evolutionary. Chukwudi Iwuji, the actor who plays him, expressed a few months ago that the introduction of his antagonist is “complex and extremely powerful.” In other words, the guardians will have to face a very serious threat and whose intelligence is admirable.
Looking at the trailer for Guardians of the Galaxy 3, it is already possible to see some scenes that lead to a sad moment. For example, Rocket himself mentions a phrase that could carry a lot of weight in his future: I’m done runningwhich into Spanish we can translate as “I’m tired of running away”. How many times have we heard these words when a character is about to die in a series, movie or video game? Quite a few…
In the advance, on the other hand, there is a sequence where Peter Quill (Star-Lord) is screaming in suffering. Have you seen Rocket die?
Nor can it be ignored that Star-Lord himself appears shooting behind Groot’s back while both turn to cover all possible flanks. This movement has been very characteristic of Rocket and the aforementioned Groot. Perhaps the tree-shaped being lost his inseparable friend and is now replicating that movement with Peter Quill.
To all of the above we can add that James Gunn, during 2017, declared that the origin of Rocket will be treated in a different way from the comics. “As you know, the Marvel Cinematic Universe is a way of processing these characters. But in 616 [Tierra-616] is different. We will learn more about the origin of Rocket in the next sagas. We already know a lot about where he came from. When you analyze it, It’s a little more horrible than in the comics.“, he commented.
Although there are several clues that point to Rocket’s death in Guardians of the Galaxy 3we will have to be patient and wait for its premiere on May 5, 2023. Prepare the tissues, just in case ..
