Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 Trailer Says Farewell to MCU. During the recent Super Bowl, Marvel Studios unveiled a new TV spot for the highly anticipated “Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3“. This sequel marks the final chapter in James Gunn’s beloved trilogy and serves as his last contribution to the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
The film picks up several years after the events of “Avengers: Endgame” and follows Peter Quill (played by Chris Pratt) and his group of misfit characters as they face a new villain named High Evolutionary, portrayed by Chukwudi Iwuji.
In the comic books, High Evolutionary is a creature that is obsessed with the idea of creating the perfect being. This leads him to kidnap, mutilate, and splice creatures from all over the galaxy. The film’s first trailer hints that the villain may be connected to Rocket Raccoon (voiced by Bradley Cooper), as the audience will see a baby version of the grumpy weapons specialist.
In addition to the new villain, James Gunn introduces several new cast members in “Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3”. The film will feature Will Poulter as Adam Warlock, a perfectly bioengineered being mentioned in “Vol. 2” end-credits scenes.
The relationship between the High Evolutionary and Adam Warlock remains to be seen, but it is speculated that the villain may have some connection to Adam’s origin story. Other new MCU cast members include Maria Bakalova as the voice of Cosmo the space dog, Daniela Melchior, and Nico Santos.

The film also stars Zoë Saldaña as Gamora, Dave Bautista as Drax, Karen Gillan as Nebula, Pom Klementieff as Mantis, and Vin Diesel as the voice of Groot. James Gunn is back to directing the film from a script he wrote himself.
