The highly anticipated Guardians of the Galaxy Vol 3 has been in development for some time now, and fans have been eagerly awaiting any news about the movie. Now that two trailers for the film have dropped, it looks like James Gunn may be teasing a dark story arc for Rocket Raccoon.
In an interview with Digital Spy, director James Gunn discussed the possibility that Rocket Raccoon could die. He said, “I’m not gonna say who dies in this movie and who doesn’t die, but I will say that we do get very deeply into Rocket’s character—perhaps more than any other character except for maybe Groot. And it goes to some very dark places.”
While the trailers haven’t revealed an exact plotline, they have hinted at a possible story arc where Rocket sacrifices himself to save his friends. In one of the clips, Rocket is heard saying “I can take it if it means my friends will survive.” This suggests that Rocket will have to make a difficult decision between sacrificing himself and possibly giving his friends a chance at survival.
The fact that James Gunn has gone into such detail about Rocket’s character arc is certainly exciting for fans, as it signals a more complex story than what we’ve seen in the two previous films. With Guardians of the Galaxy Vol 3 set to be released May 5th, we’ll have to wait and see if Rocket will meet his ultimate fate. Until then, it looks like James Gunn is teasing a story arc that could prove to be the most emotional yet.
Will Rocket Raccoon die for his friends? Only time will tell! But whatever happens, one thing is certain: this movie promises to be a wild ride. So get ready for thrills, surprises, and maybe even some tears when Guardians of the Galaxy Vol 3 hits theaters right at a month from now.
