Guardians of the Galaxy, the beloved misfit superhero team from the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU), helped bring Disney-owned Marvel back in a big way last year when Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 debuted in theaters. The upcoming installment, helmed by the talented director James Gunn, promises to continue the cosmic adventures of the quirky and lovable characters that fans have come to know and adore.

Led by the brash adventurer Peter Quill, portrayed with charm and charisma by the talented Chris Pratt, the Guardians of the Galaxy comprise a group of unlikely heroes, including Drax, the revenge-driven warrior played by Dave Bautista, the fast-talking and endearing Rocket Raccoon, and the fierce and determined Gamora, brought to life by the talented Zoe Saldana. This dynamic ensemble of characters has captured the hearts of audiences worldwide with their unique dynamics, humor, and camaraderie.

With the return of key characters and the visionary direction of James Gunn in Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3, the MCU felt relief from what some feel like is a dying franchise after Avengers: End Game (2019). The film offered new direction while delving deeper into the untapped potential of this band of disparate misfits as they navigate through the cosmic landscape of the Marvel Cinematic Universe. They explored new challenges, relationships, and conflicts that will test the bonds of friendship and loyalty that unite the Guardians.

However, upon its ending, the idea of moving forward with the Guardians in the MCU is up in the air, especially considering the potential disbanding of the heroes as we know them. The final film in the franchise saw Rocket Raccoon take over the Guardians, now introducing Adam Warlock and others to the ragtag crew of galactic saviors. So, what happens to the Guardians now?

As fans eagerly await the release of a new chapter, they can anticipate being taken on a thrilling and emotional journey filled with action, humor, and heart. Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 delivered on the expectations set by its predecessors and pushed the boundaries of storytelling and character development in the superhero genre. However, if Marvel were to continue with the Guardians, the group would look a lot different than what we’re used to.

If there’s any doubt about the demand for new Guardians products moving forward, look no further than Gamora’s recent comments. Speaking on The Playlist’s The Discourse Podcast, Zoe Saldaña discussed the possibility of a return of the Guardians.

“I would think it would be a huge loss for Marvel if they didn’t find a way to bring back The Guardians of the Galaxy. It’s just such a fan-favorite group of misfits, you know? And then at the helm, they had a voice like James Gunn‘s writing – which is just so marvelous for and very specific for this genre. And it’s so great for this genre as well. So, I would be the first one in the first row to sort of celebrate when the Guardians of the Galaxy come back.”

In conclusion, the return of the Guardians of the Galaxy to the MCU would signify a monumental moment for both fans and the franchise itself. As the Guardians have become a fan-favorite among the likes of Iron Man, Spider-man, Thor, and other MCU personalities, given the current state of the Marvel franchise, continuing on with their story could be worth exploring.  With its stellar cast, captivating storytelling, and cosmic scope, a new installment would solidify the Guardians’ place as legends within the Marvel Cinematic Universe and continue captivating audiences with their unpredictable and entertaining adventures.
