Guardians of the galaxy vol 3 is the final chapter in the trilogy.
At the end of the movie, the team splits, everyone goes their separate ways, and the guardians as we know them are over.

But this is not the end of the guardians of the galaxy. Star-Lord is confirmed to return, and Rocket Racoon is the leader of the new guardians.

A team that includes two very powerful cosmic heroes.

And there’s so much story for the guardians in the future.

So for this video let’s focus on what’s next for the guardians of the galaxy, and how vol 3 might have just set up a giant space crossover event that will send the cosmic side of the MCU into Annihilation.

And how all of this could connect to Avengers Kang Dynasty and Secret Wars.

Alright, let’s start with the new guardians of the galaxy. Rocket Racoon leads the new team, which includes big boy Groot, Kraglin, Cosmo the Spacedog, Phyla-Vell, Adam Warlock and his pet Blurp.

So this is a really powerful upgrade of the guardians, at least power-wise. Nothing can beat the OG team, because they were a family that made us laugh and cry and fall in love with some of the best characters in the MCU.

But when it comes to power levels, Adam Warlock and Phyla-Vell already make the guardians into a cosmic powerhouse team.

I mean Adam Warlock can be on the same power level as Captain Marvel and Thor. He’s a space wizard with lots of cosmic power. So he’s gonna be essential in Kang Dynasty and Secret Wars.

Now before we explain the future of the team, let’s first talk about if there’s a future for the guardians at all.


So like I was saying, is there a future for the guardians at all? Because sure, the trilogy is finished, Gamora and Drax won’t be coming back since Zoe Saldana and Dave Bautista are finished with the MCU. And other than Star-Lord, we have no idea when and if the team will return.

But who are we kidding here, Rocket and Groot are some of the most beloved characters in the MCU. So they aren’t going anywhere, they will return. And so will the other new guardians.

But SHOULD Rocket Racoon come back?

Doug: Wait why not?

That’s because, on one hand, it seems like his story came to a fulfilling conclusion. So it might be a disservice to keep going, especially since James Gunn won’t be returning to the MCU.

But on the other, his story just began. Because he’s finally embraced who he really is, and he was able to overcome his heartbreaking past.

So while vol 3 was the end for the guardians as we know them, Rocket and Groot will return in the future for more cosmic adventures.

On top of that, there’s the whole afterlife situation from the movie. Rocket died, he met his friend Lylla. And she told him that there’s a higher power that has been watching over him and has plans for him. And then he returns to life.

Doug: so who is this higher power?

Well, we explained this scene in this video, so be sure to check it out for our full breakdown of what happened to Rocket, and who is this being that brought him back.

But the broad stroke of it is that Rocket has a bigger role to play in the future, so some higher power brought him back from the dead to serve that purpose.

And I have a theory on what Rocket’s role will be in the upcoming cosmic crisis that will threaten the entire universe.
