Casual Marvel fans were confused after the release of Guardians of the Galaxy Volume 3the trailer.
On Thursday (December 2), Marvel Studios released the first look at the new film, just a week after releasing a Christmas special featuring its characters.
Chris Pratt, Dave Bautista and Pom Klementieff are among the stars returning in the sequel, which is written and directed by James Gunn.
However, it’s the presence of Zoe Saldaña’s Gamora that has caused some confusion among the fandom.
Gamora was killed Avengers: Infinity War (2018).
Her character returned in the 2019 film Avengers: Endgame Thanks to a time heist performed by the characters that allowed an earlier version of Gamora to travel to the future to help fight Thanos (Josh Brolin).
But this version of the character has yet to meet Pratt’s Peter “Star-Lord” Quill and doesn’t know who he is when she encounters him during the fight.
After the fight, she leaves, her absence left unexplained. In the Iron Man funeral scene, which features virtually every character from the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU), Gamora is not present.
Perhaps that’s why many casual Marvel viewers assumed this version of Gamora had returned to her original timeline and are now wondering why she’s in the new trailer.
“Can someone explain to me why Gamora is still alive?” asked one viewer, while another added, “I swear I mourned Gamora’s death what the hell is she doing here.”
The explanation is that the Gamora in Guardians of the Galaxy Volume 3 will introduce the new version din endgame; the one from the first two Guardians movies is dead.
Guardians of the Galaxy Volume 3 hits theaters on May 5, 2023.
