This article contains details of the ‘Guardians of the Galaxy: Vol 3.’ plot.

Some fans have been caught off guard by a particular scene in ‘Guardians of the Galaxy: Vol 3’ and are urging Marvel to add a trigger warning at the start of the film.

While the movie has received mostly positive reviews, some fans were shocked and slightly horrified by a scene where Rocket gets put through a rather gory experiment. 

My stomach is already turning…

This scene, which some fans are describing as “triggering”, is quite graphic and has left many feeling uneasy.

Fans took to Twitter to share concerns about the display of animal cruelty and how difficult it was to watch. Some even called for a trigger warning to be added to the start of the film.

One user warned: “If you are going to see 'Guardians Of The Galaxy vol. 3' bring tissues. Honestly, the movie should have a trigger warning.”

Another said they had to leave the theatre before finishing the film.

A third said the theme “wrecked” them.

For those who haven't seen it yet, the third film in the ‘Guardians of the Galaxy’ series follows Peter Quill (played by Chris Pratt) as he searches for his fellow Guardian Gamora (played by Zoe Saldaña) while also leading the team to protect Rocket (voiced by Bradley Cooper) after his past puts the whole team in danger.

In the scene, not only is Rocket experimented on, but his animal friends are also genetically modified. 

Limbs are removed, fur is shaved, and body parts are replaced, making it a difficult watch for some viewers.

Overall, Guardians of the Galaxy: Vol 3 is an action-packed movie that brings together some of the MCU's favourite characters. 

However, if you're sensitive to graphic content, you may want to approach this flick with caution.

It's always a good idea to be aware of the content of a movie before watching it, and trigger warnings can help viewers make an informed decision.
