Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 reunited fans with most of their favorite characters from the original film, though Glenn Close’s Nova Prime Irani Rael and other members of the Nova Corps were notably absent from the second adventure. Now, director James Gunn has revealed that Close was originally going to appear in Vol. 2 for a cameo appearance.
Gunn revealed the news in response to a fan’s question on Twitter, where he confirmed that Close had a cameo that was ultimately omitted from the final version of the film. Gunn did not comment on whether or not the sequence would be included in future bonus material.
She had a cameo we didn’t use, yes
