Warning: This article contains (potential) spoilers for Guardians of the Galaxy Christmas Special.
Guardians of the Galaxy Christmas Special With just two days left to decorate the halls of Disney Plus, so before the indie holiday arrives, the Mouse House streaming service has just added two new episodes of its clip-based miniseries, marvel legends. Considering that these shorts mostly contain footage of things we’ve already seen, many fans may tend to miss them. However, you will want to see the latest legends eps as they move forward and drop a huge, game-changing bomb. no joke, this is enormous.
An episode of “Mantis” and “Drax” from legends It just landed on Disney Plus, but it’s the “Mantis” installment you’ll want to pay attention to. After recapping clips from Guardians Vol. two, Avengers: infinity warY End of the gamethe episode ends with what appears to be a clip of the holiday special in which Mantis (Pom Klementieff) and Drax (Dave Bautista) discuss something that has been long rumored in the fandom but has never been confirmed on screen before.
Why don’t you want me to tell him? Drax secretly questions Mantis, while Star-Lord (Chris Pratt) is sitting nearby. He should know that you are his sister. Mantis then explains the reason why he didn’t reveal this shocking information. “Our only connection is the source of her greatest embarrassment,” she says. “I do not think so.”
Ever since fans saw that one of Ego’s many baby mamas, as glimpsed in a scene from vol. two, was of the Mantis species, it has been theorized that the two Guardians could be half-brothers. However, James Gunn himself has cast doubt on the idea, leading to the theory dying out. It now appears that Gunn deliberately wanted to throw us off the trail so he could deploy this astonishing twist himself in a later project.
It’s hard to say if this is really from the holiday special at this stage, but that would seem to be the case given the special’s focus on Drax and Mantis, though there’s a slim chance it could be an unreleased deleted scene from vol. two.
As for why Marvel decided to drop this bombshell on a clip show like this, maybe it’s all a ploy for us to see what may well be the most overlooked of Marvel’s Disney Plus output. Marvel Studios Legends is streaming now with Guardians of the Galaxy Christmas Special To follow this Friday, November 25.
