It’s already been stated that fans should expect the final entry in Gunn’s trilogy to be an emotional one. Several actors who have read the script were vocal about the story affecting them needless to say, there were tears.
With how impactful the story seems to be, how much will it differ from previous entries? In a new interview, Gunn talked about the movie, where he revealed that it would be a more mature tale than his previous two outings.
A More Mature Guardians Story
While speaking in several interviews, Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 director James Gunn discussed his upcoming movie, how it will differ from the previous two, and what the future may hold.
While speaking with GameSpot, Gunn talked about how the upcoming third adventure is “more mature than the other Guardian stories,” also adding that “it’s an incredibly emotional story.”
In a discussion with The Hollywood Reporter, Gunn confirmed that not only is Vol. 3 “much more emotional,” but it’s also “a longer movie than the other two.”
Don’t let James Gunn’s comments fool you; there’ll likely still be plenty of jokes to go around. But, at the end of the day, the overall story could end up going to some dark places.
Fingers crossed that somehow Rocket Raccoon can make it out of the movie alive; odds seem to be against him given how heavily focused the film is on everyone’s favorite trash panda. Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 hits theaters on May 5, 2023.
