Earlier this year we heard rumors that Sylvester Stallone was going to make an appearance in James Gunn's Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2. Well, those rumors turned out to be true! I saw some footage of Stallone in the movie when the trailer was screened at the panel at Comic-Con.
There was no information on who exactly he would be playing, but he is a part of the Nova Corps because that's the costume he was wearing. I doubt it will be a big role, but it was a lot of fun to see him included in this crazy awesome universe. When talking about Stallone's involvement on his Facebook page, Gunn Said:
"YES, SYLVESTER STALLONE IS IN THE FILM
"This was an amazing experience for me, considering I ran around in my backyard as a kid pretending I was Johnny Rambo. Working with Sly was one of the high points of shooting Vol. 2 for me.
"Who does he play? Well, I can’t reveal that quite yet… but we do see him interacting with Yondu in the teaser."
How cool is that!? I can't wait to find out who exactly Stallone is playing. If Gunn won't reveal it, then there's a chance it could be a cool character from the Marvel universe. Feel free to speculate on who you think he will be playing!
