Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 firmly closed the book on this iteration of the Marvel Cinematic Universe’s fan-favorite team of cosmic benefactors. But as we consider how things ended for each of the Guardians, it’s also a great time to reflect on their travels. Writer/director james gunn did just that during his trio’s press tour, as he shared behind-the-scenes details about the story. One of the main details he discussed is the fact that Zoe Saldaña’s Gamora was supposed to die before the events of Avengers: Infinity War. Additionally, he also revealed that he “prayed” for a specific scene in this team-up flick that would help push his story forward.
