The group — which performed a pivotal position within the final two Avengers movies — will reunite for James Gunn’s Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3. But past that, their future stays unsure. Yet, one actor from the second movie is perhaps up for a return to the Marvel Cinematic Universe in Phase 4.

The Guardians of the Galaxy motion pictures — maybe moreso than some other MCU title — actually go all in on making a world that audiences have by no means seen earlier than. The 2014 unique movie centered, after all, on the titular anti-heroes. But the 2017 sequel took issues a step additional.
In explicit, Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 dives deeper into the Ravagers in addition to characters like Stakar Ogord (Sylvester Stallone). During the movie’s in depth mid-credits sequence, followers even meet Stakar’s previous group, lots of whom made up the unique Guardians line-up in Marvel Comics.

Now rumors persist that Yeoh is ready to return to the MCU. But by the sounds of its, she might not be taking part in Aleta Ogord in any respect. Instead, Yeoh has been persistently hooked up — although, once more, unconfirmed — to have a task in Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings.
That film is ready to hit theaters in May 2021. Played by Simu Liu, Shang-Chi — often called the “Master of Kung Fu” within the comics — would be the first Asian lead within the MCU. And Yeoh’s personal expertise in martial arts movies similar to Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon will surely be an ideal match for the film. But would the MCU actually forged Yeoh as two completely different characters?
It wouldn’t be the primary time. Yeoh’s Crazy Rich Asians co-star Gemma Chan performed Minn-Erva in Captain Marvel and can play Sersi in 2021’s The Eternals. Similarly, Alfre Woodard performed Miriam Sharpe in a cameo position in Captain America: Civil War. She went on to play Luke Cage villain Mariah Dillard later that very same 12 months.

“When that [movie] was announced last year, and they introduced who they were doing as the Marvel superhero and it was an Asian superhero, it was like, ‘Yes, finally!’ When do we get to be represented like that?” Yeoh instructed Time.
Knowing how secretive Marvel is about its plans, followers most likely received’t know for positive if Yeoh is concerned in Shang-Chi till the corporate is able to reveal that. Yet, if the MCU has as achieved a star as Yeoh in its nook, it might really feel like a missed alternative to not embody her in its first film with a predominantly Asian forged.
