What occurs within the second end-credits scene: We return to Earth with Peter Quill

Jason Quill, Peter Quill Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3

“Guardians of the Galaxy” comes full circle with Peter again residence on Earth, reunited along with his grandpa.

Peter and his grandfather, Jason Quill, are sitting round a small kitchen desk. Peter eats cereal as his grandfather reads the information. 

A headline on the entrance web page reads: “Alien Abduction: Kevin Bacon Shares All.”

Peter complains in a joking method about how he, a 45-year-old man, has to mow a garden as his succesful grandfather watches him.

The scene ends.

The phrases “The legendary Star-Lord will return” seem on a white background because the sounds of Peter consuming his cereal shut out the film.

What it means: ‘Vol. 3’ seemingly takes place in early 2026. We most likely will not see Quill once more for some time.

This can be a largely humorous scene with enjoyable banter between the Quill males. 

The most important reveal is that Peter states his age.

Since “Vol. 2” shared that Peter was born in 1980, we all know “Vol. 3” takes place in not less than 2025, two years after everybody returned from the Blip in “Avengers: Endgame.”

Nonetheless, 2022’s “Guardians of the Galaxy Vacation Particular” takes place throughout Christmas 2025. That is when Drax and Mantis kidnap Bacon. (In accordance with Disney+’s MCU timeline, the vacation particular happens after “Ms. Marvel,” which takes place in 2025.)

The newspaper Jason reads locations “Vol. 3” after the vacation particular because it mentions Bacon’s abduction. Peter’s from Missouri and we wager his grandfather did not relocate. Because the climate’s comparatively good and never wintery, it is seemingly spring 2026.

However most surprisingly, the ultimate scene says Star-Lord will ultimately return to the MCU. We have now a number of guesses as to how Peter would possibly determine to get again into the motion.

Possibly he will get tired of life on Earth and his grandpa tells him it is OK to return to his area adventures.

Or perhaps Peter’s grandfather dies, and he makes use of touring the galaxy as a coping mechanism. 

It is also totally believable that somebody Peter loves leads to hassle and he is recruited to assist.

No matter occurs, it is almost certainly we’ll see Star-Lord in motion once more when the galaxy wants saving as soon as extra. That will not be till 2025’s “Avengers: The Kang Dynasty” or 2026’s “Avengers: Secret Wars.”
