Rocket Raccoon Guardians of the Galaxy Vol 3 Marvel

Marvel has released a brand new Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 synopsis, teasing high stakes for a member of the titular team.

An updated synopsis for Guardians of the Galaxy Vol 3. has found its way online ahead of the Super Bowl game between the Philadelphia Eagles and the Kansas City Chiefs, which is expected to feature a sneak peek at the Marvel Studios movie. The synopsis offers fans an idea of what to expect from Vol. 3, which arrives in theaters this May.

The Guardians of the Galaxy are back

The Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 synopsis reads as follows: “Our beloved band of misfits are settling into life on Knowhere, but it isn’t long before their lives are upended by the echoes of Rocket’s turbulent past. Peter Quill, still reeling from the loss of Gamora, must rally his team around him on a dangerous mission to save Rocket’s life – a mission that, if not completed successfully, could quite possibly lead to the end of the Guardians as we know them.”

The Guardians of the Galaxy were last seen during the events of Thor: Love and Thunder and a James Gunn-directed holiday special on Disney Plus. Vol. 3 is expected to be a continuation of the events of the first two films and is set to expand the story of the titular team of misfits as they venture through the galaxy and face off against new and old foes alike.

One confirmed aspect of Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 is the return of James Gunn as writer and director. Gunn was originally set to direct the film after the success of the first two Guardians flicks, but was temporarily removed from the project due to controversial tweets that resurfaced from his past. However, after a public outcry from the Guardians cast and fans, Gunn was reinstated on the film. Vol. 3 is his last Marvel movie due to his commitments to DC Studios.

Written and directed by James Gunn, Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 stars Chris Pratt, Zoe Saldaña, Dave Bautista, Vin Diesel, Bradley Cooper, Karen Gillan, Pom Klementieff, Elizabeth Debicki, Sean Gunn, Sylvester Stallone, Will Poulter, Chukwudi Iwuji and Maria Bakalova.
