Could Rocket die in Guardians of the Galaxy 3?

Although it is still a long way for Guardians of the Galaxy 3 to reach the cinema, there are many rumors linked to its characters. Mainly with Rocket, who seems to have a good chance of dying.

Already on several occasionsJames Gunn he came to anticipate someone's death in his next movie for Marvel Studios. This prompted fans to start investigating and many of them concluded that Rocket could be one of the characters with the highest chance of dying in Guardians of the Galaxy 3.

On the one hand (via ScreenGeek) points out that the name of Rocket It comes out through a simple process of elimination. That is, why does no other member of the Guardians aspire to a fatal outcome? For starters, it can be said that Peter Quill / Star Lord presumes a safe-conduct without expiration date for the simple fact of being interpreted by Chris Pratt, a celebrity who, after the departure of Robert Downey Jr. and Chris Evans, became one of the most valuable in the franchise.

Likewise, there are five other characters who have already had to die at some point in the MCU, and therefore would be less likely to lose their lives again. We talk about Gamora, whose "original version" died at the hands of Thanos in Avengers: Infinity War; of Nebula, who killed the "Nebula of the past" in Avengers: Endgame; of Groot, who has already died twice, either by sacrifice (Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 1) or by the snap (Infinity War), and for this latter reason also died Drax and Mantis.

A fan theory

In this way, only remains Rocket in the equation, a character whose story (in addition) will have a substantial weight in the conclusion of the trilogy, as revealed by himself James Gunn more than two months ago. "I will just say that Rocket carries a lot of what will be happening in the future, and many of these things (like the scars we are about to see on his back) shape what I have been planning for Rocket all this time," the filmmaker wrote.
