The third installment of Guardians of the Galaxy will be released next year by director James Gunn and among the latest details we have discovered, we already know who will be the new villain of this installment.
We know that it will be Chukwudi Iwuji who will play the High Evolutionary, who has described his character as a narcissistic and sociopathic being with Shakespearean overtones in his twisted personality. The costume even seems to be made, in the actor’s words, for someone as narcissistic and dramatic as he is, so not only does he confess to have felt comfortable with the costume, but it has also helped him get more into the role.
Iwuji also explained that this was a villain who has been around for eons, and has direct connections to characters in the film, the main one being Rocket, one of many he negatively influenced.
James Gun, the director of the franchise has advanced that the ending of this movie will be very emotional and will probably make more than one cry. He himself got a little sentimental when talking about it during the San Diego Comic Con. Guardians of the Galaxy Vol.3 is officially the end of the saga as we know it.
This does not mean that Guardians movies will cease in the future, but it would not be with the same lineup. They also said that this does not mean that everyone will die, but being Marvel, it is normal that the news has generated uncertainty and expectation on the part of the UCM fans. It was also during the Comic Con when fans were able to see the exclusive trailer of the movie.
Another of the great unknowns of the film was whether the singer and now also actor Harry Styles would appear, and since his debut as Eros/Starfox in Eternals, many expected a direct link with Guardians of the Galaxy. Something logical since the end of this saga could lead to the incursion of Starfox in the Marvel Universe. However, Gunn himself has been in charge of denying the rumor and has confirmed that Harry Styles will not appear in this film.
Who will be soon on the small screen will be Baby Groot, who will be the new protagonist of the series of animated shorts of the series I am Groot. For the moment we are waiting to know more Marvel projects and we are looking forward to Guardians of the Galaxy Vol.3, which will hit theaters on May 5, 2023.
