!! Spoilers Ahead for Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 !!
Although ardent fans of the Marvel Cinematic Universe are accustomed to saying goodbye, this does not mean that our favorite characters will be forgotten forever. In fact, you actually have some exciting things to look forward to (in the future), if you’re a big fan of James Gunn’s Guardians of the Galaxy.
Prior to that, however, we must undoubtedly discuss Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3, which not only reunites our favorite band of misfits for one final adventure but also serves as James Gunn’s formal farewell to the MCU. Moreover, it is also the farewell of characters like Drax and Gamora.
What does this indicate about GOTG’s future, then? What is going on with the team, now that it is entering a new era? In any case, those recognizable post-credit scenes will give us a few hints as to what to anticipate next.
Here is a detailed explanation of the Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 end credits scenes.
Do Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 Have Any Post-Credit Scenes?
As you are probably already aware, there are significant plot and future-related spoilers in the end-credit scenes. How long should you remain in the theater after James Gunn‘s latest MCU film in order to bid adieu to the adored band of misfits? Well, there are actually two post-credit scenes at the end of Guardians of the Galaxy 3.
The first one follows the opening stylized credits, while the second one occurs a short while later after the full credits have finished playing. Once you’ve discovered all the hidden gems, you’re ready to go.
Therefore, if you haven’t seen the movie yet, now is the time to stop reading, because, from this point on, there will be major spoilers. We’ll be analyzing precisely what transpires in the Guardians of the Galaxy 3 post-credits scenes and speculating on what this might imply for the course of Marvel’s next Phase.
Post-Credit Scenes: Explained
A new team of heroes is assuming the mantle now that the former Guardians have temporarily disbanded. In the opening end credits scene, Rocket Raccoon (Bradley Cooper), Groot (Vin Diesel), Kraglin (Sean Gunn), Cosmo the Spacedog (Maria Bakalova), and Adam Warlock (Will Poulter) are gathered in a desert, prepared to face an adversary. Also, we can see Rocket, who is serving as the Guardians’ newly appointed leader.
The young girl saved from the High Evolutionary’s ship is identified as Phyla-Vell (Kai Zen) on the scene. She is a comic book character who could appear at some point in the MCU. The new team comes together as they emerge unexpectedly to get ready for battle as the all-new Guardians.
The second scene occurs right before the credits roll, when Peter Quill (Chris Pratt) is back at home with his grandfather and they are both eating breakfast. The Guardians of the Galaxy Holiday Special is mentioned in a newspaper that his grandfather was reading. It also mentions Kevin Bacon being abducted by aliens. As the scene comes to an end, the screen announces that Star-Lord will return.
As a result, even though the original group of Guardians may no longer exist, a new group has been put together to carry out the task of defending the galaxy. Although it is unknown if Quill will rejoin them once again, at least we are aware that his story is still ongoing.
There is no doubt that some of the characters are just getting started, so we will have to wait a little while before learning more about their fresh adventures.
Guardians of the Galaxy 3 opens in theaters on May 5.
