The show hasn't been treated all that well since its second Season. I doubt the stuff with James Gunn would affect the cartoon that much, if at all. He wasn't even involved with the show. At best you could argue they're using his movies as inspiration for the characters, instead of the comics, but even so there are enough differences between the two projects. I think the hiatus has more to do with Disney XD trying to drag out the shows to last longer (airing only half a Season of each show per year) than anything else.

With three shows on air, I always felt that they could schedule the airing of episodes to the point where there was at least one new Marvel episode on air every week of the year if they wanted to. I don't think I'll ever understand the science of kids network programming.

That would have been nice. Or like how they started out with the whole Marvel Universe block years ago, having premieres of 2 shows per week and alternating between their 3 series.

Looking back, it's kind of interesting but the first few episodes of Guardians actually premiered on Saturday nights at 9:30PM back in 2015. Though I think there must have been some re-runs in the schedule back then. It was later moved to Sunday mornings at 8:30AM in early 2016.

I presume when the show returns, it will keep its Saturday morning time-slot like the first half of Season 3. They'll probably still air 2 episodes per week.

I don't know if anyone ever caught this, but I was rewatching season two and noticed this object that the Avengers returned to Earth with before being distracted by the Guardians was, unless I'm mistaken, never brought up again:


What is it? Did I miss something about it belong to the High Evolutionary, or was it a set up for a future plot point similar to the Symbiotes dragging Thanos into the Earth in the season one finale?

Setting that aside for a moment, was that crossover the last time Grant George played Ant-Man? I think it was after the Civil War arc in Ultron Revolution :confused:.

Either that or his Hollywood episode in AA season three.

What about the wand?

EDIT: It looks a little bit like Odin's Thrudstok, but I'm not even sure if that's the case because we saw Odin again later in the season and it was never brought up. :(

EDIT2: Okay, I looked a few frames back in a wider angle. It's not a wand, it's a rod. A coloring error revealed an outline to prove that it's actually longer.



What if it's the Cosmic Control Rod? What if the "Secret Invasion" involves Annihilus and his legion?

So, it's been almost 5 months since we've had a new episode (the longest gap for a midseason hiatus). I'm just going to go out on a limb and say that the show is cancelled, and they'll just announce it whenever the show comes back. I mean, we haven't had encores in months, which says quite a bit.

We still got 13 episodes left that will air in the Spring. That may very well be the end, but who knows for sure?

TBH I'm 98.7% sure that the "secret invasion" arc will be an adaptation of the Annihilation storyline.
Just looking up the plot synopsis for that comic storyline fits perfectly with the show's loose ends. (Where's Ronan? Is he exiled from the Kree after the stunt he pulled in season one? Where's Nebula and Korath? All could be resolved by pulling straight from the comic's story!)

I think the writing's been on the wall ever since some crew (like the character designer) started to move on to other projects, plus the rumor of every Marvel cartoon ending on their current season.

I think we're supposed to assume Ronan actually died when Thanos destroyed his ship. Nebula is the one who got away :ack:.

Nebula's already been addressed. She's currently leading the Ravagers and redeeming herself :).

Korath...I'm trying to remember, didn't he get blown up near the end of season 1? I thought he did :sweat:.

I strongly doubt Ronan is dead when we've seen him survive his ship exploding a few times with his hammer projecting a force field around him.

I'm also aware of Nebula's return. In Annihilation, Ronan is on the run and looking for allies and turns to to Nebula and Korath (who in fact did not die in this show) for help.

The set up is there, if the writers want to go that direction. We still have 13 episodes left; 4 or 5 being that art style change thing but 8 or 9 episodes to tie up everything. :)
