Will there be Thor in the film?

Continued on Avengers: Endgame finale is the question Marvel fans are asking: Will Thor appear in Guardians of the Galaxy 3? Attention, spoilers on Avengers 4 : at the end of the film, Thor joined Star Lord, Groot, Drax, Rocket and the rest of the gang for intergalactic adventures. Director James Gunn, however, has confirmed that the movie Thor 4: Love and Thunder will take place before the events of the third installment of Guardians of the Galaxy. It therefore seems unlikely that the God of Thunder will roam the universe alongside the Guardians, and will most likely decide to continue his adventures solo. However, a cameo by Chris Hemsworth (Thor) cannot be ruled out. For now, no information on the subject has been confirmed one way or the other.

Will Gamora appear in Guardians of the Galaxy 3?

Avengers: Infinity War and Avengers: Endgame have reshuffled all the cards of the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU). Attention, spoilers on Avengers 3 and 4 : in Infinity War, Gamora was sacrificed and killed by Thanos. But in Endgame, through time jumps, the Gamora from the past was sent to our heroes’ present and influence the events of the fourth Avengers movie. The character, however, remained untraceable at the end of the feature film. However, Guardians of the Galaxy 3 is set to take place after Endgame. The presence of Gamora is therefore not to be excluded, but according to speculation, it should not be the Gamora of the first and second films, but the one before the events of the first part, when she was working for Thanos . The actress Zoe Saldana, who plays Gamora, is well confirmed in the casting of the feature film on the IMDB site. It will however be necessary to be patient before discovering the implications of the return of his character.

What place in the MCU?

Marvel Studios have chosen to “store” their films in phases, in order to introduce new characters and above all, to conclude their stories. Ideally, the closing film creates an opening for the next phase. The phases of the (very large) Marvel universe are therefore cut out like this. The first phase includes: Iron Man, The Incredible Hulk, Iron Man 2, Thor, Captain America: First Avenger, and finally, Avengers. The second phase consists of: Iron Man 3, Thor: The Dark World, Guardians of the Galaxy, Avengers: Age of Ultron, Ant-Man. Finally, the third phase brings together Captain America: Civil War, Doctor Strange, Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2, Spider-Man: Homecoming, Thor 3: Ragnarok, Black Panther, Avengers 3: Infinity War, Ant-Man 2 and the Wasp, Captain Marvel and finally, Avengers 4. But due to production turbulence, The Guardians of the Galaxy 3 will not be part of phase 4 of the MCU, but of phase 5, which will open up a wide range of narrative possibilities.
