Stallone’s ‘key role’ in James Gunn's next
Hollywood action star Sylvester Stallone (left) will have a key role in the film Guardians of the Galaxy 2, according to director James Gunn.
The 70-year-old showed up briefly in the footage shown at Comic-Con, appearing in just a single one-second shot. “It’s an important role. It’s not a huge role. He’s a great supporting actor,” says Gunn.
Meanwhile, rumours that Kurt Russell is Star-Lord’s (Chris Pratt) father were confirmed at Comic-Con with the actor playing Ego the Living Planet in the 2017 sequel. Zoe Saldana, Vin Diesel, Bradley Cooper, Michael Rooker, Karen Gillan, Sean Gunn, Glenn Close, Pom Klementieff, Elizabeth Debicki and Chris Sullivan will also star in the movie that will be released next year.
