According to the Daily News, Sylvester Stallone has joined the cast of Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2.
"Sylvester Stallone was caught on camera Friday heading to the set of Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2.," they report. "He is pictured holding a script (click here), likely evidence of a role in the sequel to the 2014 blockbuster."
The 69-year-old actor, who was recently nominated for an Oscar for reprising his Rocky Balboa role in Ryan Coogler's Creed, "was spotted leaving an Atlanta hotel where the movie’s cast stays" and "then got into a car usually assigned to Chris Pratt."
Who might Stallone be playing? Perhaps, Peter Quill's (Pratt) father. We know that coveted role will appear in the sequel. However, most people assume Kurt Russell already snagged that part and a source for the Daily News says Stallone's role is just a cameo.
Set to the all-new sonic backdrop of Awesome Mixtape #2, Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 continues the team's adventures as they unravel the mystery of Peter Quill's true parentage.
Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 is written and directed by James Gunn. The film marks the return of the original Guardians, including Chris Pratt as Peter Quill/Star-Lord; Zoe Saldana as Gamora; Dave Bautista as Drax; Vin Diesel as the voice of Groot; Bradley Cooper as the voice of Rocket; Michael Rooker as Yondu; Karen Gillan as Nebula; and Sean Gunn as Kraglin. New cast members include Pom Klementieff, Elizabeth Debicki, Chris Sullivan and Kurt Russell.
Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 is scheduled to hit theaters on May 5, 2017.
