Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3: James Gunn Wants Fans To Decide Whether Star-Lord and Gamora Should Do a Dance Number

Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 Star-Lord and Gamora

James Gunn’s Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 could very well be getting a musical duet depending on the crowd responses. The director recently tweeted about whether the fans want to see Star-Lord and Gamora doing a full-blown dance number on-screen in their third and latest MCU installment. One could easily imagine the actors’ being set up for either a dance-off or a waltz, vastly depending on the tone and narrative arc of the plot.

Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 Rewrites Star-Lord’s Story

Among Marvel’s set of celebrated directors is included James Gunn, who has successfully delivered two consecutive Guardians of the Galaxy films between 2014 and 2017. His characters, in all their eccentricities, come together to form an inadvertent and unlikely family, and with time, the dysfunctional superhero team only grows more involved and essential to the narrative of the universe.

However, after their run-in with Thanos and Gamora’s death following the events of Infinity War, it wasn’t until the finale of Avengers: Endgame that the fated lovers met again, but from different timelines set five years apart from each other. As heart-wrenching as it makes the reunion of Peter Quill and Gamora, it also gives the heroes a second chance at rewriting their tragic story. However, Zoe Saldana has other plans. During a Seattle Comic-Con, the actress indicated that portraying the 2014 Gamora would be interesting since it would give her a chance to play a more villainous arc.

“There’s a part of me that wants her to go back, find her way back to the Guardians. But there’s also a part of me that wants to explore a bad Gamora. I’ve never seen that and she’s considered the most lethal assassin, the most lethal woman in the galaxy. So I would want to see what that wrath looks like, also because it would give me layers to sort of work on.” 

Although this will definitely bring some extra drama to Star-Lord’s story and progress in terms of the narrative, it doesn’t currently seem to fit in with James Gunn’s plans of how he envisions Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3‘s plot to work out.

What to Expect From Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3?

As the studio and the franchise gear up for a high-octane Phase 5, the movies that will establish the new roster of the Multiversal saga will witness the Guardians returning before the events leading up to the showdown against Kang the Conqueror reach their dramatic climax. Although the story has only begun and needs an expansive world-building, one of the arcs that the audience is keen to investigate is where the past Gamora is to be placed when it comes to the current timeline. As far as the story goes, she is now a member of the Ravagers.

“There’s a lot of melancholy here, but also pride that we’ve achieved something great. James Gunn has written a beautiful story that’s making us emotional even as we shoot it.”

It is a celebratory occasion to witness Gunn’s Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 finally coming along, after innumerable delays. The pantheonic story of the director will get a narrative that will be a theatrical experience in ways more than one. Moreover, the standalone Holiday Special releasing this December will take a deep dive into what the Guardians have been getting up to in the past few years and act as a filler for the several gaps in the timeline.

At present though, it looks like James Gunn, after his adorable stint as baby Groot dancing away to the tune of Mr. Blue Sky in the opening sequence of Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 has grown attached to musical numbers and dance sequences. And this he wants to explore in his new film, with the approval of the fans, of course. The said fans are all for it.

The guardians who are now back at their stations and ready to save the universe will find the familiar and returning faces of Drax (Dave Bautista), Groot (Vin Diesel), Rocket (Bradley Cooper), Nebula (Karen Gillan), Mantis (Pom Klementieff), Stakar (Sylvester Stallone), and Kraglin (Sean Gunn) beside Chris Pratt‘s Star-Lord and Zoe Saldana’s Gamora, along with new additions of Will Poulter‘s Adam Warlock, Daniel Melchior, and Maria Bakalova as Cosmo the Space Dog.

Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 will premiere on May 5, 2023.
