The end is coming for James Gunn and the GOTG cast. GOTG cast and crew, including director James Gunn, have been extremely vocal about this being the final instalment of the Guardians in the MCU. After the bittersweet-type trailer was released, their opinions were almost certainly correct. As he starts his new chapter as the co-president of DC Films, this marks Gunn’s final tour of the Marvel Cinematic Universe. He is giving fans one more journey with this club and one final gut punch of passion. So, let’s explain mysterious planet that appeared curiously similar to Earth in the Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 trailer.

Counter-Earth shown in GOTG 3 trailer explained

Rocket’s origin is revealed in GOTG 3 and the movie’s trailer depicts the Guardians visiting a mysterious planet that is home to anthropomorphized creatures. Although this was anticipated, no one saw it coming that Rocket’s homeworld would resemble Earth so strikingly. The Bowie, the Guardians’ newest ship, was shown soaring over what at first glance appeared to be a very familiar terrain filled with habitations and boats in the film’s opening shots.

Only after the Bowie touched down in a suburb were the locals, including human-bat hybrids, panda people, and others, visible. These photos have undoubtedly baffled many viewers, yet this universe has a very straightforward explanation. It combines the locations Halfworld and Counter-Earth from the comic books and is connected to the movie’s villain, which is none other than High Evolutionary.

The High Evolutionary is portrayed by Chukwudi Iwuji in GOTG 3. The High Evolutionary is a human biologist who developed a fascination with the idea of directing evolution in the comics. He developed as a genetics expert, his intelligence to the point where he surpasses that of the average person. As a result, the High Evolutionary embarked on one of his most ambitious projects: the construction of Counter-Earth, a planet he populated with his “New Men” artificially produced human-animal hybrids. The MCU’s depiction of Counter-Earth is clearly shown in the GOTG 3 teaser.

The GOTG 3 trailer strongly suggests that two distinct Marvel Comics places have been blended. In the comics, Rocket Raccoon and his lover Lylla are from a planet called Halfworld in the Keystone Quadrant, where robot stewards employed genetic engineering to give Terrestrial animals knowledge and awareness after they had been left as companions for patients in a large mental institution. Whether the MCU will refer to this united place as “Counter-Earth” or “Halfworld” is not yet known, but the presence of human constructions on the planet’s surface supports the theory that it is more like Counter-Earth.
