James Gunn Wanted David Bowie To Make A Cameo In ‘Guardians Of The Galaxy Vol. 2’

This morning, the entire world awoke to the horrible news that after an 18 month battle with cancer, the legendary David Bowie has passed away at the age of 69. Upon hearing of this news, James Gunn chose to post a tribute to the icon on his Facebook page. In this post, the director revealed that he and Kevin Feige had discussed the possibility of the actor & musician making a cameo in the  upcoming Guardians Of The Galaxy Vol. 2

Initially, Gunn had heard from common friends that Bowie wasn’t doing so well. However, they later heard back that he was doing okay and it could potentially happen after all, which made this morning’s news even more shocking for the director. 

Just a very short while ago Kevin Feige and I were talking about a cameo role in Guardians Vol. 2, and he brought up Bowie’s name. I told him nothing in the world would make me happier, but I heard from common friends he wasn’t doing well. We heard back that he was okay and it could potentially happen. Who knows what that was about? But, for whatever reason, it made my Twitter revelation more of a surprise.

Gunn previously used Bowie’s “Moonage Daydream” in the first film and went on to reveal that he might use another song of his in Vol. 2. Despite having cut the scene that it would have been used for in the script, the director still plans on figuring out some way to fit it in. Let us know your thoughts on this and let us know what Bowie meant to you in the comments section below.
