Just in time for the premiere of Guardians of the Galaxy Volume 3, Everglazed in Disney Springs has debuted a limited-time “Super Hero” donut. Let’s check it out and see how it tastes.
Everglazed “Super Hero” Donut — $5.95
Dipped in your choice of yellow or red icing and then topped with rainbow sprinkles and superhero candies atop 4 buttons of buttercream.
It would be copyright infringement for Everglazed to reference Guardians of the Galaxy, so this donut was harmlessly titled the “Super Hero donut.” Just feet away from Everglazed, the outside of AMC Disney Springs has recently been given a Guardians makeover.
The fluffy donut is dipped in red icing where it is then covered in sprinkles and some retro-comic-style superhero onomatopoeias like “Pow!” and “Boom.”
Upon tasting, this is your run-of-the-mill Everglazed donut. It is light, fluffy, oversized, and nigh impossible to finish on your own.
While we wouldn’t make a trip to Everglazed just to get this donut, it is a solid choice if you’re there. This donut is only available through May 7.
“Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3”
“Guardians of the Galaxy” focuses on a group of extraterrestrial criminals on the run who initially team up for just causes when they tangle themselves in a dangerous struggle between Xandar and Kree fanatical Ronan the Accuser.
“Vol. 3” is the long-awaited conclusion to a trilogy that began with 2014’s “Guardians of the Galaxy.” A relatively unknown team of superheroes to the general public before this film’s release, the franchise is now one of Marvel’s most popular and critically acclaimed, with the first two films grossing a combined $1.64 billion , as well as scoring a 92% and 85% on Rotten Tomatoes, respectively.
The Guardians have also made appearances in “Avengers: Infinity War,” “Avengers: Endgame,” and “Thor: Love and Thunder” — plus a roughly half feature-length Holiday Special on Disney+. They’ve spawned a series of video games, and are now featured in two Disney Parks attractions: Cosmic Rewind at EPCOT and Mission: Breakout at Disney California Adventure.
James Gunn, doubling as writer and director, has repeatedly expressed his profound desire to wrap the trilogy up with the utmost propriety, calling it “the hardest thing I’ve ever done” in an interview with Entertainment Weekly.
Once I started doing the first “Guardians” movie, I felt drawn to it. I felt called to it, if that makes any sense. So I feel very good [about Vol. 3] because I feel like I did everything that I possibly could to make this trilogy as good as it can possibly be. And I feel incredibly blessed and fortunate that I had all these people around me making it. It’s the biggest blessing of my life.
After the conclusion of his Marvel trilogy, Gunn will be almost exclusively focused on taking the helm over at Warner Bros. Discovery’s DC Studios, where he has already been a creative force behind “The Suicide Squad” film and “Peacemaker” series for HBO Max.
This outing is intended to be a bit more emotional, with higher stakes than viewers have previously encountered. The entire cast and crew emphasizes the familial bond they share, and the difficulty it has caused as the time to say farewell arrives. In an interview with Rolling Stone, Karen Gillan expressed the obstacles and the profundity of the film’s finality:
It’s been a rocky road to get here. When it looked like we weren’t going to make the movie without James, it just didn’t feel right at all. You can’t make a Guardians movie without James…There’s a scene towards the end of the film that’s somewhat of an ending-of-an-era scene, and everyone was crying in the scene. When you see it, just know that none of us are actually acting. Like, everyone was very emotional. It did feel like a goodbye. And it felt real.
