Can ‘Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3’ Continue Without Gamora?

Avengers: Infinity War was one of the most surprising installments in the MCU as it featured twist after deadly twist throughout its entirety. One of the biggest shockers in the film was when Thanos sacrificed his daughter Gamora in exchange for the Soul Stone. Not only did it reveal how heartless he can be but it was a legitimate surprise that I couldn’t have seen coming in the film.

But Avengers 4 is supposedly going to reverse at least a good deal of the deaths that transpired in the movie so will Gamora be one of those reversals? Or will she remain dead on Vormir for eternity? And how will that effect Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3?

Gamora is a central piece to the Guardians of the Galaxy puzzle and with her missing it’ll feel like the team is incomplete. I mean, how will Star-Lord go on knowing that the woman he loved was killed and he couldn’t do anything about it? How will that affect the team moving forward?

Of course, because of James Gunn’s abrupt firing a few weeks ago, Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 may not even happen (it’s been postponed indefinitely until they find another director.) But if the movie does go along as planned then it’ll be very interesting seeing the team dynamic possibly without everyone’s favorite “fiercest woman in the galaxy” along for the ride.

Honestly, I hope Gamora is brought back to life in some sort of way in the next Avengers film because she still hasn’t been fully explored yet and I want to see more with her. To have her permanently dead just feels like a waste of a great character to me.

What do you think? Do you think the Guardians of the Galaxy will be perfectly fine without her or would it be best for her to return? I’d love to hear your thoughts in the comments below.

I thank you for reading and I hope you have a great day.

Who’s Your Favorite Guardian of the Galaxy?

Marvel has introduced over two dozen fascinating and fabulous superheroes to the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Some of the most memorable of these wonderful characters have been, undoubtedly, the Guardians of the Galaxy. While they are clearly a bunch of misfits they have grabbed the hearts of Marvel fans and casual moviegoers around the world with their uncanny heroism. But which of these lovable scoundrels is your favorite? That’s what I’m here to ask you on this week’s segment of Who’s Your Favorite? Here are the characters.

Groot

Groot is practically the Chewbacca of the MCU. He’s big and represents the brute strength of the Guardiab, he speaks a foreign language in the form of “I am Groot” which we, as moviegoers, can’t understand, and he’s awfully sweet and kind (at least every version of Groot except the teenage Groot.) Groot is one of the coolest, most original characters I have ever seen in a movie and that’s why he’s so awesome.

Ranking the Guardians of the Galaxy; from Least Cool to Coolest

When the Guardians of the Galaxy were getting ready to make their MCU debut in 2014 I was highly skeptical about how well the movie was going to do because it was so strange. Marvel was taking us viewers to places we had never seen before and introducing us to aliens and characters as wildly different as a talking raccoon. You would think a superhero movie with a talking raccoon! would be an ultimate flop but to my great surprise it wasn’t. In fact, it’s still one of the best Marvel movies ever made as its simple storyline has become more and more enjoyable over the years. Now with the Guardians officially meeting The Avengers in Infinity War their cool points have risen a lot, as I got to see how truly incredible they really are as the Guardians of the Galaxy. The other day I watched the Guardians of the Galaxy and as I was watching the film I asked myself which Guardian did I enjoy the most? Well, that’s what I’m here to share with you and I hope you enjoy.

Mantis

The one good thing about Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 was that it introduced Mantis to the MCU and I’m so glad she ended up becoming a Guardian. What makes the Guardians so hilariously awesome is the wackiness of its occupants. Take Mantis for example. In a word she’s weird…but that’s why she’s so great. Only in the Guardians will you see characters as unique as Mantis and that’s why I love them so much.

Groot

I am Groot. Translated: Groot is awesome. 🙂

Who’s Your Favorite Marvel Heroine?

The MCU may have an abundance of awesome male heroes but over the years there has also been a rise of incredible heroines who manage to steal the show simply by their commanding presence. But which of these fascinating, crime-stopping, alien-annihilating ladies is your favorite? Here’s the list.

Mantis

Mantis is extremely lovable because of her sweet and innocent personality. She’s played a smaller role than most of these other heroines but her presence is undeniable.

Nebula

Nebula has always been an interesting character since her debut in Guardians of the Galaxy. She was only the second female villain to appear in the MCU next to Iron Man 3‘s Maya Hansen and she was kind of really cool. Now she’ll return in Avengers 4 and I couldn’t be more excited.

Valkyrie

Valkyrie is awesome, pure and simple. The Thor series desperately needed a major heroine equal to Thor and Valkyrie is that 100%. I like that not only is she tough but she doesn’t play by any rules whatsoever. She doesn’t bow before Thor when she sees him or grovel at his feet. She zaps him and honestly doesn’t care that much about him, at least at first. That’s definitely an upgrade from the infatuated Earth scientist, Jane Foster (Natalie Portman.) 🙂

The Five Saddest Deaths in ‘Avengers: Infinity War’

Avengers: Infinity War was the first Marvel movie to add real stakes for the heroes and finally provide us some shocking moments that made the wait for this film totally worth it and with so many of our favorite heroes dying I’m here to share with you which deaths struck my heartstrings the most. Enjoy!

5. Doctor Strange

Doctor Strange was so cool in this movie. In fact, he was perfect for the film and so when Thanos snapped his fingers and half of all life in the galaxy came to a startling end I was devastated to see Doctor Strange become one of that massive number. To think that we would have to watch Avengers 4 unfold without him, at least for a time was a real heartbreaker for me. I can’t wait until he’s revived so I can enjoy him again.

Here Are the Ways the Dead Heroes in ‘Avengers: Infinity War’ Can Return in ‘Avengers 4’

As I’m sure you all know by now (if you don’t know then discontinue reading this NOW because there are MAJOR spoilers ahead) a lot of people died in Avengers: Infinity War. I mean, a LOT! So many in fact that it’s kind of obvious that they’ll be brought back in the next Avengers film but here’s the question: How can they be brought back from the dead to return to fight Thanos in a last battle worthy of this Avengers finale? Well, that’s what I’m here to theorize and I hope you enjoy. 🙂

Vision

Vision is the only Avenger who died twice in Infinity War but he just might be the luckiest of the deceased bunch and this is why. When he was killed the first time Scarlet Witch destroyed the Mind Stone and in the process he literally exploded into a million tiny particles but Thanos turned back the time and still plucked the stone from his head anyway. But when the stone was removed from his head he became a lifeless grey husk of what Vision once was and while that was of course horrifying there’s still hope for Vision coming back and this is how.

Because he’s basically a robot who feeds off of the Mind Stone for life if Shuri (granted if she’s still alive and didn’t evaporate) could somehow find a new energy source powerful enough to sustain him he could be resurrected and we would have Vision alive once again, except without the Mind Stone this time around. Of course he wouldn’t be as powerful as when he had the Infinity Stone but I’m sure his anger for the loss of Scarlet Witch and the devastating annihilation of the galaxy would spur him on to become an even mightier hero than he has ever been. Sounds awesome to me. 🙂

Was Gamora, Scarlet Witch, and Vision Treated Fairly In The MCU?

I’ve had nearly a week to digest all of the fascinating and monumental storylines presented in Avengers: Infinity War and what surprised me the most was the level of importance Gamora, Scarlet Witch, and Vision presented to the movie which I was sooo happy about. Finally these three characters that have always been some of the strongest heroes in their various movies were getting some recognition and some real character development…and then they all died. I couldn’t believe it. Gamora for example, was finally getting some well deserved attention and then they killed her off! What’s up with that?! So today, I’m going to look at these three characters and determine if their stories were utilized fairly or unfortunately wasted in the MCU? Enjoy!

Gamora

mv5bngeyndflmdityjczmi00ztixlthhnjytzmuwogvmztrhyzblxkeyxkfqcgdeqxvyoduxmzm3mje-_v1_.jpg

Throughout her participation in the MCU Gamora has never truly shined. She’s supposedly the most dangerous woman in the galaxy but did we ever get a feel of that in the Guardians of the Galaxy films? Um, no. In the first Guardians movie she was presented as this awesome assassin who could handle herself easily in a fight but she was utilized into the movie as more of a love interest for Peter rather than an asset to the team. Of course we did get to see her in action several times but I was waiting for some story revolving around her to arrive in the sequel and that didn’t happen in the slightest. They took her and diluted her presence in the MCU so much that soon I began to think of her as Peter’s girlfriend and “the most dangerous woman in the galaxy” was a title I didn’t even know she had.

Now we come to Infinity War where we finally get to see her rule the narrative and I was totally into it. Gamora was the important one this time around and Star-Lord was playing the co-star. I couldn’t be happier. And then she was brutally killed out of the movie as Thanos sacrificed her for the Soul Stone. I couldn’t believe it. She finally gets a compelling storyline and then was erased out of the movie as quickly as she had come into it. I feel that the MCU’s treatment of Gamora was unfair because she never was given the chance to shine and to grow beyond just her relationship with Peter. Even in Infinity War she was used as a tool to further Thanos’s story rather than it being a stepping stone to her own betterment in future movies. I don’t know why the writers couldn’t figure her out but I definitely believe she was a waste of a chance for something truly awesome.
