There is still more than a week left for the arrival in theaters of ‘Guardians of the Galaxy 3’, but little by little new details of the latest movie of James Gunn for Marvel -and also one of the most anticipated feature films of this 2023-. One of the most curious is that the final adventure of this group of superheroes is going to break a taboo in this universe by including for the first time something that until now had been conspicuous by its absence here.
The word in question is “fuck“, which in Spain is usually translated as “fuck“. There are several Marvel movies that have flirted with including her, only to back out at the last moment. For example, Peter Quill (chris pratt) is about to say it in ‘Guardians of the Galaxy’ right after the explosion in the Collector’s lair, but a background noise prevents us from hearing it.
In fact, Gunn is the director who has flirted the most with its use, because in ‘Guardians of the Galaxy 2’ it is implied that Groot says it when Rocket translates in his farewell to Yondu a “I am Groot” as “Welcome to the fucking Guardians of the Galaxy, he didn’t say fucking though“. There are also other MCU movies like ‘Avengers: Infinity War’ or the ‘Spider-Man’ trilogy starring Tom Holland who have played with it, but never taken it to its logical conclusion.
Gunn he wanted to make it clear that its use was not planned in ‘Guardians of the Galaxy 3’, but that he asked Pratt to add it during filming and it made the scene more fun, so they decided to keep it. At the moment, the scene in question is already available online -you can see a little above-, but there the word appears censored, which led fans to ask about it, receiving Confirmation from Gunn himself that the film will not be censored.
I suspect that several factors have come together here. On the one hand, it is Gunn’s last film for Marvel, but also that ‘Deadpool 3’ is just around the corner and we have been promised actively and passively that it will be the studio’s first adult film. . And knowing the funny character played by ryan reynoldsSomething key in this is going to be the use of foul language -you just have to remember the precedents to be clear-. Also, it is true that the scene is more natural using that word normally.
