Sylvester Stallone Will Have “Key” Supporting Role In ‘Guardians Of The Galaxy Vol. 2’

Stallone Guardians Vol. 2

This past weekend at San Diego Comic-Con, the very first footage from Guardians Of The Galaxy Vol.2 debuted and with it came confirmation of Sylvester Stallone’s long rumored role in the upcoming sequel. Let’s pause for a second there and let that one soak in. James Gunn somehow got Sylvester Stallone and Kurt Russell for a Guardians Of The Galaxy sequel. How cool is that?

Okay, let’s move forward now and discuss his actual role in the Marvel Studios release. While some might have believed that the iconic actor might just have a smaller role or cameo in the film, that definitely isn’t the case according to director James Gunn. Speaking with Cinemablend, the director explained that Stallone’s role in the film is an important one.

It’s a very, very key, important role. It’s not a huge role. He’s a great and key supporting actor.

While it’s been rumored that Stallone’s character would be a Ravager but his gear in the footage shown looked more like that of the Nova Corp. However, his role is still being kept under wraps for the time being, so it seems that we’re going to have to wait a bit longer to find out more details. Do you think that this “key” role end up leading to a bigger role down the line? Let us know your thoughts on the subject in the comments section below.

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.

Guardians Of The Galaxy Vol. 2 hits theaters on May 5, 2017.

    Apparently Stallone has been seen in Nova Corps gear. Hopefully this presents an oppurtunity to see a younger Richard Rider Nova as well!! It would melt my face to see Nova. RIIIIDERRRRR!!!!!

    Stallone takes a shower with Sharon Stone’s Janet van Dyne, While Glenn Close’s Nova Prime gets all psycho obsessive over Michael Douglas’ Hank Pym. He walks in to find Rocket Raccoon boiling in a pot.

      All they need is Demi Moore cast in Captain Marvel as a Kree commander and our 80’s/90’s icon collection will be complete.

        Demi is offered $1 million to spend the night with Redford’s Alexander Pierce lol

        • Peter James

          The MCU is basically becoming a ‘Six Degrees of Separation’ for 1980’s/90’s popular actors.

          We need to find roles for the likes of Antonio Banderas (was with Sly in Assassins), Jeff Bridges (Demi’s husband in lndecent proposal), Michelle Pfieffer (we already have a role for Michael Keaton, so why not?), Kim Basinger (more Keaton 6 degrees of separation) and just for sh**ts and giggles (As the quintessential ’80’s actor) ,…. Judge Reinhold.

            Demi’s husband in that was Woody Harrelson, and that’s kind of where I was going with Robert Redford. Hmmm… Harrelson as Kraven the Hunter?? Hands up who got The Specialist reference? lol
