We’ve known for awhile now already that Sylvester Stallone will have a part to play in the story for James Gunn’s Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2. We now have new details on his role and we’ve also learned that Smallville star Michael Rosenbaum will also be in the film and each of the actors will play “very important” characters from the Marvel Universe.
Gunn was recently a guest on The Adam Carolla Show and that’s where he made the big teasing reveal, saying:
“We do have a couple of characters who are very important to the Marvel Universe who are going to make their debut in Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 which people don’t know about. Sylvester Stallone plays one of these characters…my friend Michael Rosenbaum also has a pretty decent movie in the role as well and it sort of works in tandem with Sly’s character.”
I have absolutely no idea who these characters could be and if they will play a part in any other the other upcoming MCU films. Whoever they are, it seems like they will be working together in some way.
It’s pretty cool to learn that Rosenbaum will be in the movie, though! That guy is easily one of my favorite versions of Lex Luther. He was just so awesome in that role! I can’t wait to see who he’s playing in Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2.
It’s been previously rumored that Stallone could be Nova Corps member, but it might be more than that. Do you have any theories on who Stallone and Rosenbaum could be playing?
