The Antagonist Of Guardians 3 – Set Photos May Confirm [SPOILERS]

The Antagonist Of Guardians 3 - Set Photos May Confirm [SPOILERS] High Evolutionary

Guardians 3, as well as the Holiday Special have been filming on location. New set photos may confirm the antagonist of Guardians 3, so be wary if you read on past this point. There are also some images being bandied about on social media and you can find some of those below as well.


If you have been following any rumors about Guardians 3 then you’ll know that the antagonist has been rumored for some time as the High Evolutionary. Not only a character name, but we think Chukwudi Iwuji, confirmed to be in the movie, is the actor. So far there was no solid evidence to suggest this was more than a rumor. Though, bear in mind that rumor began way back before James Gunn was fired for a time.

However, some set photos released this week from a variety of sources show some details which match up with the High Evolutionary. As you can see in the social media post below, extra’s in part human, part animal make-up have been spotted. If you know your comics, then you’ll know this is classic High Evolutionary experimentation.

What is perhaps most surprising is that this all seems to be happening on Earth. Now, it might not be Earth, it could be an Earth-like planet for all we know. I think most fans, myself included figured the Guardians would be coming to Earth for the Holiday Special and then leaving again for the third and final movie. Perhaps we were wrong on that front? Previous BTS shots have showed Christmas decorations in Beverly Hills, so we still think the HS is on Earth. However these shots do seem instead to be from Guardians 3 given the creatures.

Lastly, though I have no permission to show the images, there are some that show Chris Pratt wearing the classic Star Lord comics costume which is a pretty neat Easter egg for fans. You can find those from Just Jared Here.

What say you? Do these set photos confirm the antagonist of Guardians 3 is High Evolutionary? Thoughts below or over on Discord as always.
