It looks like principal photography is slowly coming to a close on Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3, as Pom Klementieff took to her Instagram account to share that she has finished her work on the project. Of course, the film won’t release until May 5th, 2023 and they might definitely plan some reshoots in the coming months. Still, Klementieff, who plays Mantis that became a permanent member of the Guardians after the second entry, shared a cake with the iconic “We are Groot” line as a way to celebrate finishing up her work on the threequel.
Her saying “We are Groot Forever” continues to highlight that this film is very likely wrapping up the franchise or at least the version that we’ve been following since 2014. We don’t know how exactly it’ll warp up the storyline and what members might continue their journey across the galaxy afterward.
Sadly, there have been hints that a good amount of members might end their time with the MCU in the upcoming project, but many things can get adapted throughout the production process. Yet, Gunn has envisioned this film for quite some time and is gladly returning to finish what he started. Still, it definitely feels like it’s going to leave us with an emotional gut-punch once the film ends up.
