Guardians Of The Galaxy Vol. 3 (2023)

You might want to have your handkerchief’s at the ready because Guardians Of The Galaxy Vol. 3 may be the last time we see our band of space heroes together.

This latest entry in the MCU sees our titular band of space heroes go up against the diabolical High Evolutionary who has a long-standing connection to Rocket that (just in case you haven’t seen the movie) we aren’t going to reveal here. 

Guardians Of The Galaxy Vol. 3 is certainly one of the most emotional movies in Marvel’s Cinematic Universe with one particular heartbreaking scene that may well make you shed a tear. Don’t worry though – it’s not all doom and gloom, as there is plenty of comedy and action in the movie too, so while you might need a hanky, you will still be entertained by the Guardians’ latest (and possibly final) adventure.
