Fan Favorite Marvel Character To Make Their MCU Debut In ‘Guardians Of The Galaxy Vol. 3’


This post contains spoilers for Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3

The third and final Guardians of the Galaxy film from James Gunn is set to release on May 5, 2023. Gunn has promised this film will be the last time we see this group of characters in their own film. Some characters might be seen in future Marvel films while for some this could be the last time we see them. Could this mean some characters are going to die? Possibly. Gunn spoke at this year’s Comic Con saying

“Some stories have an end, doesn’t mean everyone dies,”

Despite this being Gunn’s last time doing a Guardians movie, he is set to introduce us to some new characters including Adam Warlock (Will Poulter). Another character making his MCU debut will be High Evolutionary who is played by Peacemaker’s Chukwudi Iwuji. In the comics High Evolutionary was a scientist known for his genetic experiments. It is suggested that he will be responsible for the experiments that helped create Rocket Raccoon.

Gunn has said that Rocket will play an important role in the third film and the recent footage shown at Comic Con shows that we will see Rocket’s origin. With Rocket’s backstory we will finally see how he became the wise-cracking smart-ass hero we all love. We might also see the origin of some other people in Rocket’s life.

Fans have speculated that since we are getting Rocket’s origin that perhaps we will see the debut of his love interest and soulmate, Lylla, the otter. Lylla was teased in the first Guardians film while Rocket was being processed. The screen showed Groot and Lylla as his known associates.

When it comes to Lylla, there have also been rumors that Daniela Melchior (The Suicide Squad) might actually be voicing her. Currently her role is unknown and Wikipedia says she has a small role in the film.

pources close to GVN tell us that Lylla is in the film and she shares a few scenes with Rocket.

Although we cannot say if these scenes are all flashbacks or a combination of flashback and present story. When reaching out to others for confirmation we were told Lylla was in the script for Guardians 3 but whether or not she makes it into the final cut remains to be seen.

In the flashback we see a baby otter, a cyborg walrus, and a robot spider rabbit that baby Rocket makes friends with. Rocket’s first words are “hurts”.

Lylla is definitely a character fans want to see and she is a very important character in Rocket’s origin story. There are a lot of questions we would like answered. Is Lylla dead? Did something happen to separate them? Could Lylla return and give Rocket the happy ending we all would like to see him have?

James Gunn is known for debunking “scoops” that are not accurate so time will tell if he bothers to debunk this report or not.

In the comics Lylla was a sapient otter and the heiress to Mayhem Mechanics on the planet Halfworld.

What will be the fate of favorite Guardians? Will Rocket find happiness? Those questions and more will be answered on May 5, 2023.
