Time to look for that pinch of salt and take it, but we could be about to see one of the last big Hollywood names never to appear in Marvel about to do that very thing – and in Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2, no less.
Rocky and Creed star Sylvester Stallone – who was nominated for Best Supporting Actor as last week’s Oscars – was photographed leaving an Atlanta hotel where the film’s main cast members are staying, before getting into a car usually assigned for star Chris Pratt. What’s more, it appears that Sly is holding a script in his hand.
Not surprisingly, Marvel have yet to comment on the speculation, and it could just be a case of Stallone visiting friends on set. However, it isn’t out of the realms of possibility that the veteran actor has been lined up by director James Gunn for a bombshell cameo. Or maybe, just maybe, Kurt Russell’s casting is not for the role of Star Lord’s father, and Stallone is the man lined up?
Guardians of the Galaxy Vol 2. will star Pratt, Zoe Saldana, Bradley Cooper, Vin Diesel, Dave Bautista and Karen Gillan, and is due for release on 5 May 2017.
