Everyone is pretty curious to know what will happen to our beloved Guardians of the Galaxy, especially after their group dynamics have changed after Avengers: Endgame. Due to the time travel usage, the timeline in which Gamora and Peter Quill join together and also fall in love, was erased. So, Gamora (Zoe Saldana) is no longer with the Guardians of the Galaxy. Though, two other members have officially joined the ensemble and that is Nebula (Karen Gillan) and Thor (Chris Hemsworth). Thor joins the group after he leaves Asgard and leaves Valkyrie (Tessa Thompson) in charge of the planet, which was a decision we can all get behind on since she is a true badass. This makes for an comical moment where Peter Quill/ Starlord (Chris Pratt) feels threatened by Thor. We’re really curious to see how that goes.
Plot Line for Guardians of The Galaxy Vol. 3
It was thought that after Thor joined the group, it would be called the Asgardians of the Galaxy. But recently, there has been news that no change of name would happen. James Gunn himself has told everyone to not worry.
The guardians of the galaxy gang would be on the search for Gamora as she disappeared after the Avengers defeated Thanos. Moreover, Gunn really wanted to uncover more of Rocket’s past and give him a satisfying conclusion to his story. So rocket fans, get ready to learn more about your furry fella.
Remember the eccentric Ayesha? She was the gold lady who was a priestess of the Sovereign. Gunn wanted her to return as well and be a major character in the upcoming Marvel movie. Plus, a lot of fans are speculating that we could see Adam Warlock make his entrance into the Marvel universe. He is connected to Ayesha and is basically a male version of her. They both might be working together to fight her enemies which consists of Peter Quill and co. Warlock also happens to have some sort of link with Infinity Stones.
We’ll all see Sylvester Stallone’s character Stakar to return with his Ravager group consisting of Martinex (Michael Rosenbaum), Aleta Ogord (Michelle Yeoh), Charlie-27 (Ving Rhames) and Mainframe (voiced by Miley Cyrus).

Cast and Crew
Thankfully, there is official confirmation that the movie is in fact happening. And after much hurdles and controversies, James Gunn is officially directing the movie. He was fired from his role after some racist tweets of his resurfaced. Though, Gunn did sincerely apologize for his actions and understood why he was fired. During that time a lot of the fans and the cast of Guardians of the Galaxy were quick to forgive Gunn and wanted him to direct the third movie. So, Marvel Studios took all of this into consideration and finally decided to bring him back.
The cast would include Peter Quill (Chris Pratt), Mantis (Pom Klementieff), Groot (voiced by Vin Diesel) and Drax (Dave Bautista).
They all returned after Thanos’ snap was reversed in Endgame. Bradley Cooper will voice Rocket and James Gunn’s brother Sean Gunn will be providing the motion capture. Plus, there’s a great chance Sean Gunn will return as his role as Kraglin, the ravager friend of Yondu. Gamora (Zoe Saldana) will have an interesting part to play in this upcoming marvel movie because this is a 2014 Gamora that has no memories with the rest of Guardians of the Galaxy gang. Her sister Nebula (Karen Gillan) joined the group in Infinity War and is still on their side. At the end of Avengers: Endgame, we also saw Thor (Chris Hemsworth) join the group. So, we might get to see him as well. As of now, there is no other news regarding another upcoming Marvel movie focusing on Thor.
