Marvel Studios’ Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 | Push Down On It

It probably shouldn’t surprise anyone that director James Gunn managed to score the MCU’s first “fuck,” or that Chris Pratt’s Star-Lord was the first character to utter it. However, there have been rumors for a while that a fuck was planned, or at least hoped for, before eventually getting eroded by Disney’s Standards and Practices department. What’s interesting is that everybody pretty much assumed Deadpool 3 would feature the MCU’s first fuck, being R-rated and all, and then Gunn jumped the gun, so to speak.


Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3, and its attendant fuck, premieres on May 5.
