In 2022, director James Gunn said to Deadline that “This is the end of us. This team of Guardians will be the last people see.” He continued, “It is big, it is dark and it’s different than what people may expect it to be.” I want to stay true to the story, and to the characters, and to give the people what they deserve. It’s always a bit scary, but I’m trying my best.”
All hope is not lost. In the mid-credits of the film, Rocket Racoon is introduced and a new team of Rocket Racoon and Groot are brought together. Adam Warlock, Cosmo the Spacedog, and Phyla-Vell complete the group. Marvel has not confirmed anything, but fans believe that this scene could be the basis for a new film that revolves around the Guardians of the Galaxy and their misfits.
