We have come a long way since the beginning of the MCU. The storytelling and craftsmanship of the MCU go without saying at this point. One could argue that phase 4 has not been great and not a lot seems to make sense. While I do not prescribe to that exactly, I do feel some of the "funnier" storylines or more accurately, the comedy/jokes they have put into these movies have not been good. Without picking apart the MCU, I will simply refer to Guardians of the Galaxy Vol.2. Although this was a great movie, everybody was given a joke. In the previous Guardians movie, it was simply just Drax who provided the audience with a laugh. In the second movie, it seemed like everyone had a joke and it kind of hampered the movie. This has been the case with a lot of MCU movies of late, so I am sure there is more than a handful of people who don't mind some silliness and jokes but not to be laughing all the time. I guess one argument is, they do this to balance out the heaviness of some of the themes, but...I don't know, some movies do it better than others. Thor: Ragnarok to Thor: Love and Thunder is an example of that.
The music in the trailer has me. The music in the Guardians movies has all been great so for this trailer, it is simply continuing a standard, but this music! It is possible that, due to learning that this will be the last movie with the current team lineup, the music just hits me differently as there are rumours that members of the team will die, like...die die. No coming back type of die. There will be stakes in this movie and the runners-up are Dave Batista as Drax the Destroyer and Bradley Cooper as Rocket Raccoon. If done well, we will have some much-needed levity and humour, hopefully, provided by Drax and Mantis (I cannot be the only person who finds Mantis' background antics hilarious), but I do believe this movie will draw out the tears. We have spent some time with this loveable group and to see any of them actually die, I do believe will be heart-wrenching. That scream from Peter Quill in this trailer looks like real pain and loss. Deep breath guys. We can do this together.
Directed by James Gunn and starring Dave Bautista, Chris Pratt, Zoe Saldaña, Karen Gillan, Pom Klementieff, Sean Gunn & Chukwudi Iwuji
