James Gunn Says Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 Won’t Hurt Fans Like Game of Thrones Did

Guardians of the Galaxy, Vol. 3 is still nearly a year away from starting up production, which means any hints about its plot likely won’t release to the public until the latter half of 2021. One of the biggest plot points rumored to be included in Vol. 3 is an in-depth look into Bradley Cooper’s Rocket Raccoon, possibly including his demise at the end of this trilogy.

Director James Gunn recently went into some details about how he is working on Guardians of the Guardians, Vol. 3.
A fan asked Gunn if he would entertain a fan poll that would decide whether Rocket lives or dies in the upcoming movie, to which Gunn responded that such a storytelling decision is not something that people can vote on:

Gunn then tackled another question asking if Marvel fans should be “prepared for some Game of Thrones fan-type of hurt” in Guardians of the Galaxy, Vol. 3. The filmmaker implied that whatever events transpire in GotG Vol. 3 will have proper build-up and will feel authentic:

It’s a great sign seeing how seriously Gunn is taking this story after bringing surprises and excitement in both of the first two Guardians of the Galaxy films. The noted director isn’t afraid to kill off fan-favorite characters like Groot (before his rebirth) and Yondu if that’s what is best for his stories. The filmmaker has already confirmed that Vol. 3 will include a major death as the trilogy comes to a close.
