Director James Gunn has made the surprise announcement that Rocky star Sylvester Stallone and former Smallville Lex Luthor Michael Rosenbaum will have small but significant roles in Guardians Of The Galaxy Vol 2.
“We do have a couple of characters who are very important to the Marvel universe, who are going to make their debut in Guardians Vol 2, that people don’t know about,” said Gunn on The Adam Carolla Show podcast. “And Sylvester Stallone plays one of these characters… But I will say that my friend Michael Rosenbaum also has a pretty decent role in the movie as well and it sort of works in tandem with Sly’s character.”
Rosenbaum, who has worked with Gunn on the webseries James Gunn’s PG Porn, immediately Tweeted, “I kept yapper shut 4 a year but can finally say what James Gunn announced on Adam Carolla. I’m in freaking Guardians.”
Stallone has yet to comment on social media. Because he isn’t Vin Diesel.
Who do you think they’ll be playing?
