GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY HOLIDAY SPECIAL Merch Points To A Surprise Appearance From [SPOILER]
A leaked listing of upcoming Funko Pops for The Guardians of the Galaxy Holiday Special may reveal an unexpected cameo in the Disney+ spinoff which could have major consequences for GOTG Vol. 3...
In Avengers: Infinity War, Thanos threw Gamora to her death in order to secure the Soul Stone. It was a heartbreaking moment and one of the Marvel Cinematic Universe's most shocking scenes. While fans were upset to say goodbye to the hero, Avengers: Endgame found a way to bring Gamora back, though she's a 2014 Variant with no memory of the Guardians.
The expectation is that James Gunn will further expand on the character in Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3, but could this Gamora return before then? That's the prevailing theory based on a leaked list of Funko Pops that includes Gamora's name.
Based on the set photos we've seen, The Guardians of the Galaxy Holiday Special will take place on Earth. Remember, she was left stranded there after the Mad Titan was defeated, so it could be that this standalone story will both feature the team embarking on a Christmastime adventure and reuniting with their old ally.
That will save some time in Vol. 3, anyway, though it's always possible these are just Holiday-themed Pops being released to coincide with the special's debut on Disney+.
With the Guardians of the Galaxy threequel set to be released in theaters next May, we know this streaming spinoff is coming our way this Holiday season. With that in mind, we're bound to get some official reveals soon, and a trailer probably isn't that far off. Expect that first look to provide some much-needed clarification on exactly what story Gunn plans to tell here.
