In Marvel Studios’ Guardians of the Galaxy Volume 3, a band of misfits must fight to save one of them while defending the galaxy. It all culminates in an epic showdown between the Guardians and their new adversary, the High Evolutionary, as the heroes must make their way to his ship to defeat him once and for all. Though injured, battered, and downright tired, the Wardens know this is a battle they must face, and they slowly move toward the scuffle to come.
Back then the Beastie Boys’ “No Sleep Till Brooklyn,” the film’s most iconic moment from the film’s soundtrack, begins, and writer-director James Gunn calls it one of his favorite cinematic moments — and this is just the beginning. Below is a battle scene between the Guardians and the High Evolutionary’s henchmen, Hell Spawn, as they carry out a plan Gunn has been trying to implement since the first Guardians film.
For the first film, Gunn wanted to do a long floor fight scene in one take, and although he planned it all with a stunt coordinator, it was a bit too complicated for the actors.
“I’m here with Dave Bautista and Chris Pratt. And Chris and Dave look at me and say, “James, we’ve never seen that scene before,” Gunn recalled to Marvel.
