The Marvel fans couldn’t hold back speculating and theorizing as soon as the new Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 trailer dropped. The James Gunn directorial is going to be the final installment in the franchise. While the trailer had all the Gunn factors of fun and humor, it was also accompanied by a sense of grief and loss. It is quite evident that this conclusion to the trilogy is going to be a heart-wrenching experience for the fans.

After the trailer was released to fans worldwide at the Brazil CCXP, tons of rumors and speculations started to arrive about the potential death of a major character. There are some strong hints that this will be the final appearance of Rocket in the Guardians of the Galaxy franchise. But on the other side, Dave Bautista’s Drax also seems to have an unfortunate fate.

James Gunn has already made it clear that this is going to be the last entry to the GotG franchise. Moreover, he is the co-CEO of DCU now and will not return to the Kevin Feige fortress anytime sooner. The trailer also corroborates Gunn’s comments and a death is inevitable. Now it will be seen if it’s Dave Bautista’s Drax or Bradley Cooper‘s Rocket Raccoon or who knows, we can even be seen bidding adieu to both of them.

As confirmed in the trailer, we are going to get the origin story of Rocket in the upcoming movie. Some rumors also state a potential connection between him and High Evolutionary who is also going to make his MCU debut with this movie. Various dialogues and emotional moments in the trailer hint that there is a high chance of the character going to take a departure from the MCU.

But on the other side, the fans were also quick to point out about the probable unfortunate fate of Drax the Destroyer. The theory gained more weight after a tweet made by a trusted source, Matt Ramos.

The fans also agreed with the point made by Ramos as we have seen a significant relationship between Mantis and Drax in the franchise. But on the other hand, the Pom Klementieff character is also known for her power to feel other people’s emotions which can also hint at her feeling someone else’s pain.

Dave Bautista has repeatedly stated repeatedly how he is only there in the franchise due to James Gunn and his unwillingness to work further with Marvel. It makes it almost certain that no matter whether Rocket’s death is a set-up or an inevitable fate but Drax is surely going to have his goodbye. The fans took over to Twitter to present their views on Drax’s fate in the MCU.

Take a look at some of them:

Looking back at the history of James Gunn, he is known for inducing pain in the audience with impactful deaths, be it, Groot, in Guardians of the Galaxy or Yondu in  Vol. 2. So it is already a precedent that this is going to be a tearful journey for the fans to witness.

Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 is going to hit theaters on May 5, 2023.
