A bit under a month ago we caught wind of a few casting announcements for the sequel of Guardians of The Galaxy. It came as a surprise when we learned that Kurt Russell had been cast for the sequel, seeing as how he’s something of an A-lister. And now it looks as though Sylvester Stallone has been thrown into the bunch as well.
According to Comicbook.com, Stallone had previously been spotted on set sporting some sort of armored suit during filming, but it’s now been confirmed that he will actually be playing one of Yondu’s Ravagers in Vol.2.
We don’t have a name for the character he’s playing yet, and his role in this grand scheme has yet to be announced. However, Stallone is no stranger to action films, so with him as a member of the Ravagers, they might play a more significant role in the story. Or Maybe he’ll have a cameo similar to Daniel Craig’s in The Force Awakens. Only time will tell.
Guardians of The Galaxy Vol. 2 is scheduled to release on May 5th, 2017.
