‘Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3’ Trailer Reveals Epic Reunion
The Guardians of the Galaxy are back.
With the remnants of Thanksgiving gone and the Christmas season fast approaching, it’s high time to call on Marvel’s cosmic crusaders with the release of the first trailer for “Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3”, the all synced to Spacehog’s ’90s emo anthem. “Waiting.”
Of course, we briefly saw the rowdy gang from outer space in action in “Thor: Love and Thunder” and currently on Disney+ with the recent arrival of “Guardians of the Galaxy Holiday Special‘, but those were just tantalizing appetizers for the third installment in director James Gunn’s series, which hits theaters on May 5, 2023.
This new Marvel/Disney trailer unveiled at Brazil Comic Con on Thursday (December 1) features Star Lord, Drax, Mantis, Nebula, Rocket Raccoon, Groot, and the return of Gamora, or at least a version of her, who was last seen in 2019’s “Avengers: Endgame” with its fate uncertain at the time. This Gamora, who joined the Ravagers for a while, is a bit rougher around the edges.

It’s been five years since the solo offering of “Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2” landed in 2017 and we’re in dire need of an extended fling with the boisterous band.
James Gunn returns here as writer and director, and from the looks of this initial preview, that wacky humorous tone we’ve come to expect is well-balanced with an unexpected surge of emotion that might require a handkerchief or two. Plus, they’re sporting their new slick blue leather uniforms!
With most of the plot still under wraps, it looks like we’re heading into an exploration of Rocket’s tortured past as a cybernetic test subject, Peter Quill’s attempt to rekindle romance with a very different Gamora, the experiments hybrid genetics of High Evolutionary – and Adam Warlock makes his first official appearance played by Will Poulter (“The Maze Runner”). We are Groot!
“Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3” explodes into our orbit on May 5, 2023.
