During the Marvel panel at San Diego Comic-Con, a plethora of new information involving Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 was announced.
Alongside a reveal of the new logo for the film, which you can see below, it was announced that a baby version of Rocket will be in the film. Given this is through flashbacks, it’s been reported that the film will involve Rocket’s origins alongside its focus on Star-Lord and Gamora, which was set up in Avengers: Endgame.
Maria Bakalova was confirmed to be voicing Cosmo the Spacedog in Vol. 3, while Chukwudi Iwuji was confirmed to be playing the role of the High Evolutionary. Iwuji appeared in a full High Evolutionary outfit to give fans a preview of his character.
