Everyone in the cast is back for the last ride: Chris Pratt, Zoe Saldana, Dave Bautista, Pom Klementieff, plus Bradley Cooper as Rocket and Vin Diesel as Groot.

Ever since Black Widow had a day-and-date release on Disney+, meaning it came to cinemas and streaming on the same day, moviegoers have wondered if the same strategy will apply to other Marvel movies. The answer is a definitive no, as that was purely as a result of global restrictions.

While we don’t have a specific date, we can look to other MCU movies for an indication: Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania is due to arrive on streaming exactly three months after it hit cinemas, while Black Panther: Wakanda Forever took 82 days. Thor: Love and Thunder also took three months.

Here’s the thing, though: all of those movies underperformed, especially compared to the franchise’s past billion-busting highs. If Guardians of the Galaxy Vol 3 does well at the box office, it may stick around on the big screen for a while longer – that said, it does have fierce competition over the summer with the likes of The Flash, Indiana Jones 5, Mission: Impossible 7, and more.

The question is: will it become one of the highest-grossing movies of all time? We’ll just need to wait and see.
