The line of comic-accurate Marvel Cinematic Universe Phase Four costumes continues with a new look at Chris Pratt’s Star-Lord on the set of Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3, as well as a new look at Karen Gillan’s Nebula!
About Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3
Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 is an upcoming Marvel Cinematic Universe Phase Four film directed by James Gunn. The entirety of the Guardians of the Galaxy will reprise their roles, including Chris Pratt, Zoe Saldaña, Karen Gillan, Dave Bautista and Pom Klementieff, as well as the voices of Bradley Cooper and Vin Diesel. Sean Gunn, Elizabeth Debicki and Will Poulter are also set to have roles in the upcoming Marvel Studios film as Kraglin, Ayesha and Adam Warlock respectively.
The film is currently slated for a May 5th, 2023 release. This Guardians of the Galaxy film takes place a long time after the events of 2014’s Guardians of the Galaxy and 2017’s Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2, as the events of Avengers: Infinity War and Avengers: Endgame took place after. Before the events of Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3, we will see the cast return in Thor: Love and Thunder releasing July 8th 2022.
First Looks at Star-Lord & Nebula
Star-Lord’s Comic Book Look
As seen in new photos from JustJared, Star-Lord is in his comic book attire. The outfit being worn by Chris Pratt in these photos is the Guardians of the Galaxy’s team uniform in the source material. Pratt’s Star-Lord also sports a cleaner look than his appearance in the Thor: Love and Thunder trailer, where Peter Quill appeared a little shaggier than normal.
Photos also revealed various new creatures that are set to appear in Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3, and it’s looking like practical effects will play a role as they have in prior installments.
New Uniforms for the Team
James Gunn and Marvel Studios opted for more unique and distinguishable costumes for the Guardians in their first few appearances, but it’s looking like this family of misfits is now truly a team.
We also saw Nebula wearing a matching Guardians of the Galaxy uniform, implying we will likely see the rest of the team wearing these new costumes. We do not yet know the circumstances of why the team is wearing these matching uniforms, but it could be as part of their now-official brand of galaxy-guarding. After saving the galaxy twice in their own films, as well as fighting alongside The Avengers, they have become quite experienced. Oddly enough, Nebula is one of the few members of the team that never wore this uniform in the comics. Of course, Nebula in the source material is quite different than the version we have seen in the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
The third Guardians of the Galaxy Film is set to release May of 2023, but first we are set to see the Guardians appear in both Thor: Love and Thunder and The Guardians of the Galaxy Holiday Special! What are your thoughts on these new looks at Star-Lord and Nebula? What do you think the future has in store for Star-Lord?
