Critical Reception


  • Drax: What's that?

(a giant flaming monster is shown)

  • Peter: People call it a firebird.
  • Rocket: Firebird?! It doesn’t even look like a bird!
  • Groot: I am Groot.

(the firebird shoots out fire)

  • Rocket: Well, we're screwed.

(suddenly, a portal opens as Dr. Strange goes out of the portal)

  • Star-Lord: Wait, are you that doctor guy from Titan? Steven?
  • Dr. Strange: Yes, but I prefer to be called Dr. Strange. And it's Stephen with "ph", not with a "v".
  • Rocket: Why are you here?
  • Dr. Strange: I figured you need my help.

(he opens a portal, sucking the Firebird in it)

  • Dr. Strange: May I lead your Guardians team?
  • Star-Lord: Let me think (five-second pause)... hell no.
  • Dr. Strange: Fine. Now to teleport out of here

(he then disappears)

  • J'Son: Ah, Peter Quill.
  • Peter: Ah, some random stranger who looks exactly like me. Aren't you a comedian from Earth?
  • J'Son: No Peter, I am your brother.
  • Peter: Wow, is that even possible?
  • J'Son: Ego did so many women and my mother was one of them. We are technically brothers.
  • Peter: That means we're twins?
  • J'Son: You can say that. Come, there's a lot to see.
  • Peter: Okey-dokey!

  • Moondragon: Green lady, I have a warning for you.
  • Gamora: Green lady? I have a name.
  • Moondragon: Whatever. However, I want to warn you that J'Son cannot be trusted.
  • Gamora: Did he tell you to say that?
  • Moondragon: You think I'm loyal to the bastard who was responsible for my parents' death?

(suddenly, J'Son arrives)

  • J'Son: You are betraying me, Moondragon?
  • Moondragon: Yes, you bastard!
  • J'Son: I'm trying to justly rule Spartax and you call me the bastard?
  • Moondragon: Tell the truth to the green lady!
  • J'Son: Alright. Mantis, I'm gonna tell you the truth.
  • Gamora: Uhh, I'm not Mantis.
  • J'Son: Whatever, Groot. However, I saw the battle between you guys and Ronan the Accuser. I then saw my brother hold an infinity stone with his hands. I knew that he was destined for greatness. I then realized, I need his power. Ego found me unworthy, he almost killed me, but I was a clever kid, I escaped! I found this planet and I killed the king and queen of this planet! Now, I'm the King of Spartax! and since my brother has arrived, I’m going to kill him as he wouldn't even see it coming.
  • Gamora: You bastard!
  • J'Son: Thank you, Rocket!
  • Gamora: You are very bad at names, aren't you?

  • The Cosmic Scientist scene was somehow removed due to Stan Lee's passing at age 95 on November 12, 2018, It would've had a scene where in a cosmic lab, a well known oldest soon-to-be-almost retired scientist who looks out for what seems to be something from the aftermath of Thanos’ invasion, but winds up observing a experiment he must have not known from the Chitauri, The scientist then says, “Kang is coming.”, something that could lead up into Timequake, Though it never made it in to the final product
