Yesterday, we wrote a story about David Hasselhoff possibly having a role in the new Marvel Studios film, Guardians of The Galaxy Vol. 2. The Knight Rider and Baywatch star heavily teased his involvement, and while he has not confirmed – nor denied – a role in the film, we have a new song from the soundtrack featuring his iconic voice. The Hoff teams with The Sneepers for the new song, which is titled, ‘Guardians Inferno.’ If you listen closely, you will also hear Guardians‘ director James Gunn as he sings in the track’s chorus.
Hasselhoff’s epic lyrics are as follows:
“Getting down and dirty with a procyon lotor (scientific name for raccoon)/Got no people skills but he’s good with motors,” Hasselhoff smoothly raps. “That weird thing by his side is an infantilized sequoia/When the two of them walk by people say oh boy-yah!/They ask me why I’m bringing a baby into battle/That’s really irresponsible and getting them rattled!/I say ‘Give me a break, get off my back damn it!/I didn’t learn parenting my daddy was a planet.”
The Hoff concludes the song with an epic, and touching rendition of Groot’s (Vin Diesel) iconic quote:
“In these times of hardship, just remember, WE… ARE.. GROOT…”
You can check out the full-track below:
So, what do you guys think of Hasselhoff’s badass vocals? Are you guys pumped for Guardians Vol. 2? You can check out the new movie when it arrives in theatres everywhere on May 5th!
Set to the backdrop of ‘Awesome Mixtape #2,’ Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 continues the team’s adventures as they traverse the outer reaches of the cosmos. The Guardians must fight to keep their newfound family together as they unravel the mysteries of Peter Quill’s true parentage. Old foes become new allies and fan-favorite characters from the classic comics will come to our heroes’ aid as the Marvel cinematic universe continues to expand.
Cosmic Heroes We Want To See In ‘Guardians Of The Galaxy…
It’s official: James Gunn has confirmed that that he will be returning to both write and direct the third Guardians of the Galaxy movie, which is just phenomenal news. Gunn has created something really special with these films. He took third-tier (at best) comic book characters that most fans didn’t yet know they needed to love and turned their story into not one, but two blockbuster movies that are major hits, both critically (Vol. 2 is getting mostly positive buzz on social media following press screenings) and financially (the sequel’s currently tracking at about $150 million for its opening weekend).
In his Facebook post, Gunn stated that Guardians Vol. 3 will “conclude the story of this iteration of the Guardians of the Galaxy, and help catapult both old and new Marvel characters into the next ten years and beyond.” He also made a brief mention of “some of the other forthcoming heroes” that could be appearing in the series. With these things in mind, we thought it would be a wonderful idea to explore some of the cosmic Marvel characters that fans might like to see in the third installment.
Before we jump in, a couple caveats. While it would surely be a lot of fun to see some of the Earthbound MCU characters mixing it up with the team in space, this list is only going to feature cosmic-based Marvel characters. The film will hit theaters after the Guardians’ introduction to Tony and Cap and the gang in Avengers: Infinity War, so we may still see that happen anyway. Also, I’m sure there are plenty of fantastic cosmic villains that would be great fits to antagonize the team in the third film, but we’re only focusing on the good guys in this list. Also, as amazing as it would be to see Silver Surfer or Galactus in the MCU, we’re not including anyone that Marvel doesn’t currently own the rights to, so don’t expect to see Agent Venom or Kitty Pryde or any of the other non-MCU characters that have served on the team in the comics on this list either. Also, it should be noted that I have not yet seen Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2, so if any of these characters do appear, my apologies for the wasted entry.
Now, without further adieu, here are the 10 cosmic Marvel heroes we want to see in Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3. Hit the next button below to begin!
