After many delays, we’ve been anxiously awaiting the next entry in the Guardians of the Galaxy film. James Gunn’s final romp into the Marvel Cinematic Universe’s galaxy will feature our favorite ragtag team of space heroes. Even after all this time, it’s surprising how little we know about the actual project, but it turns out we might’ve gotten our first hint at the main antagonist.
KC Walsh, who is famous for his work on GWW and dropped the World War Hulk news, recently appeared on the Change My Mind podcast and seemingly revealed that the upcoming threequel will feature the High Revolutionary as its main antagonist. He highlights that he is “essentially the idea in the movie is that he’s gonna be the one who created Rocket,” which has been hinted at something that the film would explore. His full quote states that:
I did hear – this is a thing that’s been floating around – the villain of Guardians of the Galaxy vol. 3 is the High Evolutionary.KC Walsh
Exploring Rocket’s origin sounds like a promising direction for the franchise, as he’s also been the emotional core of some of the stories. Of course, we don’t know how it continues the story out of Thor: Love and Thunder where they’ll be featured and if they continue their hunt for Gamora from a different timeline. We still have some time until it releases but it’ll be interesting to see what the future has in store for the Guardians.
