The digital platform debut of Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 has sparked an exciting new revelation courtesy of IGN, which recently dropped a deleted scene that unveils the fate of the movie’s villain, the High Evolutionary, brought to life by Chukwudi Iwuji.
The Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 scene sheds light on the eventual destiny of the High Evolutionary post his defeat by the Guardians. Viewers are transported to Knowhere, the home of the Guardians, where the High Evolutionary is found incarcerated. Rocket made the unexpected choice to imprison the vanquished villain rather than end his existence during the third act of the Marvel Studios movie. The scene showcases the enduring physical signs of the High Evolutionary’s encounter with the Guardians.
Wrapping up its theatrical journey with an impressive global box office collection exceeding $835 million, Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 stands tall as the most profitable comic book movie of 2023. This financial triumph marks another significant achievement for the beloved Marvel franchise.
James Gunn has emphasized that Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 is his swan song from the Marvel Cinematic Universe now, given that he has accepted the coveted job as the new co-CEO of DC Studios alongside film producer Peter Safran. One of his first duties in his new position is to write and direct Superman: Legacy, which is a reboot exploring a younger Clark Kent, moving on from the most recent iteration with Henry Cavill.
What to expect from the third Guardians movie
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.
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.”
