Surely someone, somewhere, has been waiting for this auspicious day — the day when one of the superheroes that populate the Marvel Cinematic Universe would finally say “fuck.” Today is that day, my friends, as Marvel Studios has released a clip from the upcoming Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3, wherein Star-Lord drops the multiverse’s first F-bomb.
Look on Kevin Feige’s works, ye mighty, and despair:
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 rumours 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 4.
