Please, Marvel, don’t do Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 4 | Digital Trends

Now that Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3is out in theaters, of course there is a lot of speculation that a fourth film is in the offing. Given the success of the first three installments, it seems only natural that a fourth film is in the works. After all, Hollywood loves to run with something until everyone is completely exhausted by it.

In the case of the Guardiansmovies, however, it might make more sense to let them go. The only other four that MCU, Thor: Love and thunderwas met with critical derision and stifled yawns from the audience, killing whatever goodwill the character had amassed from the previous film, Thor: Ragnarok. But that’s just one of the many reasons Marvel should never make a Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 4.

Warning: Spoilers forGuardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3under.

It would invalidate Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 s ending

If you have seen the thirdGuardians, you’re probably aware that the film ends with the Guardians effectively disbanding to go their separate ways. Peter returns to Earth to see his grandfather, Mantis decides to leave on her own, and Nebula and Drax stay behind on Knowhere to start rebuilding it. Rocket and Groot remain Guardians, and are joined by Will Poulters Adam Warlock and his pet Blurp (one of the children they rescued from the High Evolutionary), Kraglin, and Cosmo the space dog.

If a newGuardianswere the film to come out, a version of these characters would likely follow. It might be fun, but it would also feel a bit like a betrayal. Within the MCU, there are very few films or film franchises that feel personal. James Gunn has managed to buck that trend with these Guardiansmovies, making them far more colorful and wacky than your average Marvel fare. Gunn has already made it clear that he’s done with the Guardians, and the end of his run with these characters should be the end of their story.

Giving the Guardians to someone else would ruin what makes them special

There are certainly plenty of competent directors in the MCU, but Gunn has such a firm feel about each of these characters that he’s insisted on writing for them even in the films he didn’t direct. More than any other character in this universe, the Guardians are about him, which is part of the reason why the films overlap so little with the rest of the universe. They exist in their own special corner and should be allowed to stay there.

As many people have observed in the aftermath of Guardians vol. 3, these films stuck the landing and formed the MCU’s first satisfying trilogy. Each chapter is fulfilling in its own way, and how it concludes gives each character a fulfilling ending. Many of these characters will likely be brought back to the MCU at some point. That’s just the nature of this universe or, more honestly, the show. THE Guardiansthe title, however, should end with this third installment. It’s okay if there is a solo Star Lord movies with Chris Pratt or Disney+ Raiders series with Sylvester Stallone, but the Guardians as a team should be retired forever.

Marvel needs to learn when to quit

There’s definitely a pretty high percentage of chance thatGuardians of the Galaxy Vol. 4it will happen. As pretty much all of Phase 4 indicated, Marvel doesn’t exactly have a habit of quitting while she’s ahead. If it does happen, though, those who loved the first three films should remember that, whatever form it may take, it must not undermine what came before.

Basically theGuardians of the Galaxythe movies are about a group of wacky friends who band together to become better people. That was Gunn’s story, and he got to send it exactly how he wanted it. Will we miss Rocket, Star-Lord and all the other crew members? Absolutely. But one thing is not beautiful because it lasts.
