Guardians of the Galaxy 3 has a perfect “Thanos was right” counter that also closes a plot hole about the origins of Gamora made in Avengers: Infinity War.
Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 has a perfect counterpart to the “Thanos was rightrhetoric present within the MCU that also resolves a plot hole in Gamora’s (Zoe Saldana) backstory. In Guardians of the UniverseGamora is said to be the last of its kind, but Avengers: Infinity War seems to contradict this twice by revealing that half of her people survived. The first is in a flashback to the first meeting of Thanos (Josh Brolin) and Gamora, and the second takes place later in the film when Thanos confronts his favorite daughter for the couple’s fateful journey to Vormir. Of Guardians of the Galaxy 3 since it’s the last hurray from the original team, it will be Marvel’s last chance to fix the mistake.
In Guardians of the Universe, the titular team is arrested by the Nova Corps and sent to The Kyln interstellar prison. During processing, a holographic display reads: “Origin: Last survivor of the Zehoberei people” while Gamora is on the screen. In a flashback in Infinite WarHowever, Thanos’ army of Chitauri slaughters half of Gamora’s people, including her parents. Later in the film, Thanos tells his favorite daughter that since his intervention, the Zehoberei people no longer live on a planet”on the brink of collapseto their children who are born with “nothing but full bellies and clear skies.“
While it would be easy to think of this as a plot hole, Avengers: Infinity War directors the Russo Brothers may have explained at a Q&A event in 2018. The director duo implied (Source: @slashfilm/Twitter) that Thanos had lied to his adoptive daughter and asked the public: ‘Who do you believe? Do you believe Thanos or Gamora?’ Thanos is a character blinded by his own messiah complex, which is why it wouldn’t be hard to think he was lying about the state of the Zehoberei. Thanos probably assumes that the Zehoberei has been doing well since his intervention and then uses that “fact” to justify his actions. Nevertheless, the random nature of Thanos’ massacres will inevitably have cost the lives of those with the knowledge and skills to keep society going. Aside from the sudden impact on the planet’s ecosystem drastically affecting the amount of food, the loss of figures such as doctors and farmers may have caused the surviving Zehoberei to quickly become extinct.
Why Gamora’s backstory is perfect for Guardians of the Galaxy 3
In Guardians of the Universe Gamora was already trying to escape Thanos, and in Avengers: Endgame An Alternate Timeline Gamora travels from this point in her life to the modern day. While Thanos may not be aware of the Zehoberei’s extinction, Gamora is not. In this case, it would make sense that she would visit her homeworld during her quest for the Soul Stone. A flashback to Gamora showing the remains of the Zehoberei in . discovers Guardians of the Galaxy 3 would hit hard after the events of Avengers: Endgame. While the Avengers managed to bring back the victims of the Blip, the civilizations Thanos purified during his quest for the Infinity Stones are gone. This wound will be fresher in the mind of the new Gamora and dealing with it can be the core of her Guardians Vol. 3 archery bow.
Guardians of the Galaxy 3 has the perfect counterpart to Thanos’ infallibility and can solve a plot hole at the same time. Through Gamora, the film can demonstrate firsthand just how short-sighted and flawed Thanos’ plan was. Guardians of the galaxy vol. 3 can explore a post-Blip galaxy and finally put to rest the misguided notion that Thanos had the right idea, just the wrong execution.
