As much as fans are excited to finally see Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3, coming a full six years after the second chapter of the cosmic saga, there’s also an element of dread surrounding the project, as we firmly believe writer/director James Gunn will have us sobbing in our popcorn buckets until the credits roll will leave behind . That was it for the Guardians, after all, so an ending that’s at least bittersweet and at most emotionally devastating is likely. And this latest poster only convinces us even more of that fact.
With 3D tickets now on sale ahead of the Threequel’s release in just over a month, Real 3D has released a new poster that focuses squarely on Rocket. Specifically, Kid Rocket, who pulls off his best Bart Simpsons impression by taking to the board to bring us a heartbreaking message. The withdrawn poster ignores the rest of the team to highlight the young trash panda writing the phrase “I didn’t ask for any of this”.
Gunn went so far as to recently announce that Rocket is the “secret protagonist” of the Guardian Movies, so we probably shouldn’t be surprised that Bradley Cooper’s character will be such an integral part of the third appearance’s storyline and therefore its marketing. Similarly, Screen X has also released some exclusive artworks to promote volume 3which summarizes how Rocket went from being an ordinary raccoon to the unique creature we know and love.
As these posters make clear, volume 3 is set to explore Rocket’s origins as the Guardians meet the evil High Evolutionary (Chukwudi Iwuji), the man who made Rocket what he is. As the adorable Kid Rocket writes on this chalkboard, he never asked to become the freak of nature, which some believe is possible, and it looks like the threesome is unwrapping much of the emotional trauma that has plagued his whole carried around with him all his life . Yes, brace yourself for ugly tears here, folks.
Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 opens in cinemas on May 5th.
