James Gunn took it to Twitter to explain why the trailer for Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 hasn’t dropped yet.

At the recent San Diego Comic-Con, some Marvel fans were lucky to watch the trailer for Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 for the first time. The trailer teased the dark origins of Rocket Raccoon (Bradley Cooper) and Gamora’s (Zoe Saldana) comeback. It also introduced new characters just like Adam Warlock (Will Poulter), High Evolutionary (Chukwudi Iwuji), and Cosmo the Spacedog (Maria Bakalova).

ComicBook gives us a detailed description of what happened in the exclusive trailer for Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3.

Guardians 3 footage sees the Guardians captured by Ravagers and Nebula reveals they have an appointment with Gamora. Peter Quill is caught all the way off guard. Peter reflects on their time together. ‘You were everything to me,’ he said. ‘I thought you were gone but you’re here and I miss you.’ Gamora tells him that person was not her. We get our first look at Adam Warlock. A grown Groot fights back to back with Quill. High Evolutionary shows up. The Guardians float on a space planet. Gamora caps the trailer by calling Quill by the wrong name and turning him down. The Guardians joke on Quill for talking to her so intimately on an open communication line and they’ve been listening all along. It ends with Mantis asking what we know about Rocket. A shot of a very young Rocket Raccoon takes the screen. Much of the trailer was set to “Do You Realize” by Flaming Lips.”

Trailer for Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3, James Gunn explains

However, unlike Black Panther: Wakanda Forever, the trailer for Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 is still not yet available online. Fans were quick to air their sentiments, and one fan tweeted, “Wish we all could have experienced the @Guardians trailer yesterday,” to Gunn. “It’s truly sad how Marvel holds your amazing space opera work of art from us the fans,” the tweet continues.

Gunn quoted the tweet and finally answered why the trailer is not yet available online. Gunn said,

“I wish you could have too. But it’s not just Marvel, it’s also me. Although I love the teaser some VFX aren’t where I’d want them to be for repeated views & close inspection — remember we didn’t wrap long ago — so you’ll have to wait just a beat! Sorry!” 

That said, we have to wait a little longer for us to have the trailer for Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3. We can remember that the production wrapped up the filming last in May. And based on what Gunn said, there might be more adjustments needed before we get to see the final version of the trailer. 

James Gunn also mentioned that Vol. 3 would be the Guardian’s final film. In the panel, Gunn said that when he began the arc for the Guardians of the Galaxy 10 years ago, he “had sort of an end in sight.” And Vol. 3 “is the end of that story.” Knowing that this feels like it’s another end of an era. After all, Guardians of the Galaxy proved to us that comedy and humor play well in a Marvel film, years ahead of Taika Waititi’s Thor: Ragnarok.

James Gunn also shared a tweet with the rest of the cast present at the SDCC. The tweet reads, “❤ (miss you @zoesaldana & @DaveBaustista) #GotG #GotGvol3 #sdcc”

In another tweet, he praised the lead stars of Guardians of the Galaxy, Chris Pratt, and Zoe Saldana, for being his collaborators in his MCU journey. 

Expect the trailer for Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 to drop very soon! The film will hit the cinemas on May 5, 2023.
