One of the many mysteries remaining in the Marvel Cinematic Universe is what exactly caused Rocket to be the way he is in the Guardians of the Galaxy movies, but a new fan theory has potentially filled in the blanks from the character’s past.
As we slowly move not only towards the Guardians of the Galaxy Christmas Special but also the third part, many expect a great conclusion to the Rocket arc and, frankly, some answers. While we all love a crazy, unsequenced backstory, we always felt like Rocket was meant to be resolved.
Well, fear no more, because Reddit’s home of fan theories and speculation has crafted a potentially groundbreaking reveal that we’ll be looking at on guardians of the galaxy vol. 3and involves one of the additions to the cast of the James Gunn movie.
Herbert Wyndham has been cast as the High Evolutionary, the villain of the piece alongside Will Poulter’s Adam Warlock, and this theory from /u/DarkAlex06 says that the villain will ultimately finish off Rocket’s loose ends: because he created the maniac-loving raccoon-shaped weapons. .
The San Diego Comic-Con trailer promised that Rocket will be crucial to the plot, and it is believed that he will be seen as a younger version in the film based on those who have seen him. guardians 1 focused on the birth of this group, vol. two in their genesis as a family, and apparently vol. 3 at its end while its source is resolved.
Rocket had significant screen time in avengers endgame, being one of the two Guardians who survived the snap. Him living five years fighting alongside Captain Marvel and Nebula seems to have had some effect on him, being a much better team player in the movie.
We’ll have to wait and see if this prediction rings true when guardians of the galaxy vol. 3 hits theaters in May 2023.
