Kevin Feige may have been constantly weaving complex stories within the Marvel Cinematic Universe, but does that extend to who decides who lives and who dies in Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3?
Not so much… as revealed by the president of Marvel Studios, along with writer/director James Gunn, during a press conference for the film. When reading a question from Germain Lussier of Gizmodo, moderator Nathan Fillion asked Faigy: “How much freedom was given to[Gan]to leave characters in places that might affect the future of the MCU?”
Feige replied, “I think he’s given his full freedom,” and Gunn added, “I’ve had my full freedom, especially in this (film).” Then Feige went on to say, “As free as there can be.”
But Fillion insisted, “Don’t you feel nervous if he wants to kill someone?”
It was always destined to be the finale to the trilogy.
“In the previous films we’ve had some discussions about that. Not in this one. This was about making the journey all the way to the end, because it was always meant to be a finale to the trilogy,” Feige admitted.
There was a lot of speculation ahead of the release of Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 next week is about which of the beloved characters will die, which Gunn heightened when he said the end of the trilogy would be very emotional. Additionally, Zoe Saldana, who plays Gamora, recently said that Vol. 3 may not be the last time fans will see the Guardians, but it does mark the last time you’ll get to play the character.
