San Diego Comic-Con is giving us the long-awaited look at what the future of the Marvel Cinematic Universe. While they haven’t given away all their cards with D23 and Disney+ Day on the horizon, we still got a glimpse at some of their upcoming projects. As it turns out, fans lucky enough to attend Marvel Studios’ Hall H presentation also got a tease of Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3.
The third entry continues not only where we left off with the team in Avengers: Endgame as well as Thor: Love and Thunder. James Gunn takes back his director seat to tell the final story of the current team, which consists of Star-Lord, Nebula, Drax, Mantis, Groot, and Rocket. While the footage is not being released online just yet, thanks to Twitter, we were able to get a good idea of what the footage contained.
The trailer shown to the audience was set to The Flaming Lips‘ “Do You Realize?” and set up what is being described as a doomed love story. The footage not only showed the first look at Will Poulter as Adam Warlock, but it also gave fans a look at the High Evolutionary and baby Rocket. The trailer also confirmed that Chukwudi Iwuji will portray the High Evolutionary in the film. The actor also later took to the aisles of Hall H in full costume to join the rest of the Guardians of the Galaxy cast on stage.
Fans described the footage as very emotional, showing a reunion between Peter and Gamora, who is now leading the Ravagers. But it also hinted at Rocket’s origins, who Gunn described as having one of the saddest stories of the bunch.
