Eagle-eyed fans may have spotted Jeff Goldblum’s Thor: Ragnarok character, the Grandmaster during the credits of Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2. Not in a post-credit scene, mind you, but during the actual credits, during which he appeared alongside several characters from the film dancing along to the David Hasselhoff tune “Guardians Inferno.” But what was just a fun little gag in the credits could actually lead to a full on appearance in the upcoming Guardians of the Galaxy – Mission: BREAKOUT! Disneyland theme park attraction.
Speaking to Cinema Blend, Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige was asked why the character appeared in the credits when he was not in the actual film. Feige stated the following:
“We had footage of just Goldblum dancing and thought it would be fun to put it in there. And as you know from the comics, he’s The Collector’s brother. Keep an eye out at a particular theme park attraction opening soon, you’ll get to see a little crossover… It’s just a fun thing.”
Feige didn’t mention the Mission: BREAKOUT! ride by name, but it seems like a no-brainer that it’s the one he was referring to. The ride is scheduled to open May 27th, 2017.
Directed by James Gunn, Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 stars Chris Pratt, Zoe Saldana, Dave Bautista, Vin Diesel, Bradley Cooper, Michael Rooker, Karen Gillan, Pom Klementieff, Kurt Russell, Sean Gunn, Elizabeth Debicki, Chris Sullivan, Michael Rosenbaum and Sylvester Stallone. Here is the sequel’s official synopsis:
