At the beginning of August 2014 , Marvel Studios decided to launch one of its riskiest bets in its still nascent Cinematic Universe . And it is that “Guardians of the Galaxy” was an almost unknown franchise for lovers of comics, and although they enjoyed some recognition, no one dared to ensure that they would succeed on the big screen.

Fortunately for Marvel , director James Gunn took on the challenge of capturing the adventures of these space outlaws and managed to position them as one of the most beloved franchises by fans of superhero movies.

And it is that the first tape of  “Guardians of the Galaxy” achieved great success by collecting 773 million dollars at the box office , achieving great acceptance among critics and fans. In fact, three years later Marvel Studios released the second part of the film, which was also a great commercial success and left the door open for the appearance of the guardians in “Avengers: Infinity War” and “Avengers: Endgame”.

Now, with a view to the fourth phase of the UCM, director James Gunn explained the change he had to make in the origin of ‘Drax the Destroyer’, a character played by Dave Bautista, this before the doubt of a fan who  remembered that noe s an alien in the comics: “I didn’t want to make a space movie where a dozen characters just happened to get together. How could I explain that in the first twenty minutes? I wanted a group of aliens and orphans from different planets who had a band”.

It should be remembered that  Dave Bautista said a few months ago that after “Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3” , he will not return to embody the powerful character: “I will be 54 years old when Guardians 3 is released and being without a shirt is every time harder for me. The journey has come full circle and I’m ready to step aside and end it,” the actor recently said.

Marvel Studios revealed a few months ago that  “Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3” will hit theaters in May 2023 and that despite all the delays announced in recent weeks , the new tape of the group of space heroes will not change of release date.
