Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 requires Thor to return due to the power levels of its villains, High Evolutionary (and Adam Warlock). After Avengers Endgame, Chris Hemsworth’s thunder god appeared poised to make an appearance in Guardians of the Galaxy3. While Thor, Love, and Thunder separated him once more from the team, James Gunn confirmed that there had never been a version of his script that allowed Thor to return. Guardians of the Galaxy 3 will close the trilogy, with the focus remaining on the original team that began the franchise.
The ragtag group faces a more difficult task if the Asgardians of the Galaxy don’t unite in Guardians of the Galaxy3. Two new villains from the Marvel Cinematic Universe are introduced in Phase 5. The main antagonist of Guardians of the Galaxy 3 is High Evolutionary (Chukwudi Iwuji). Also known as Adam Warlock (Will Poulter), will be an antagonistic force that makes it difficult for the team. The Guardians of the Galaxy 3 villains are proof that Thor should have returned, with the possibility of High Evolutionary working with Adam Warlock.
High Evolutionary and Adam Warlock are too powerful for The Guardians
The Guardians of the Galaxy are simply too strong to face alone against Adam Warlock and High Evolutionary. The Guardians of the Galaxy trailers only hint at each of their abilities, with glimpses of High Evolutionary levitating from Adam Warlock and energy beams coming from him. The powers of the High Evolutionary include super strength, creating a force field, and more. Adam Warlock, on the other hand, can fly, manipulate energy, and is virtually immortal. They pose a huge threat to the Guardians team, both individually and together.
It is hard to imagine either of these villains beating the Guardians of the Galaxy team based on their power levels and the MCU’s portrayals of each character. Rocket and Star-Lord are left with their only special guns, as Star-Lord no longer has his Celestial powers. Gamora and Drax are warriors who have super strength and other abilities. However, they aren’t strong enough to take down Guardians of the Galaxy3‘s villains. Groot, on the other hand, is a tree and Mantis doesn’t often use her fighting powers.
Thor’s Powers Would have Aided The Guardians
Thor’s return to Guardians of the Galaxy3 would allow him to use his powers to make the fight against the Guardians, High Evolutionary, and/or Adam Warlock easier. Thor, the god of thunder, was the most powerful member in his short time with the team. However, he is also one of the MCU’s most important characters. It is plausible that Thor could fight Adam Warlock and High Evolutionary on his own. After leaving Thor, Love, and Thunder he became a more valuable ally for the Guardians.
The MCU Phase 4 movie was another example of Thor’s abilities taking to new heights. The Guardians of the Galaxy would find his ability to share his power with others very useful. Guardians of the Galaxy3 could have Thor return and give his Asgardian powers to each member of the team. This would instantly make the team a superpowered group that has enough power to defeat Adam Warlock and High Evolutionary. Instead, Thor’s absence in Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. As the team fights these powerful villains, 3 could be very felt.
