Who Will Sylvester Stallone Play in GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY VOL. 2?

As you can probably tell by all of the new TV spots, Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 is less than two months away from smacking cinemagoers in the face with a sock full of Baby Groot. And we are totally down with that! So far, we’ve already seen Kurt Russell‘s Ego the Living Planet, but we have yet to see the mystery character portrayed by Sylvester Stallone. Would director James Gunn really pass up the chance to reunite Tango and Cash onscreen? That’s currently unclear, but today’s Nerdist News is following the clues and sharing our theories about who Stallone could be playing in the MCU. Let’s blast off!

Join senior editor and avatar of the Celestials, Dan Casey, as he runs down the possibilities for the Italian stallion. During a recent interview with Yahoo Movies, Gunn said “look for clues and you will find out the character Sylvester Stallone plays…He is fantastic in the movie. It’s a very important part of the Marvel cosmic universe.” Gunn noted that Stallone was on the set for a few days, which suggests that he had more than just a cameo appearance.

A rumor from the set of Vol. 2 noted that Stallone’s costume looked a lot like the Judge Dredd outfit he wore two decades ago. As much fun as that unofficial crossover would be, that may indicate that Stallone is playing a member of the Nova Corps. And while he’s a little too old to be playing Richard Rider or Sam Alexander, we think that he’d be perfect as Jesse Alexander; the long-missing father of Sam.

Other rumors have suggested that Stallone might be a member of the Ravagers, or at least appearing alongside them in the film. But perhaps the most intriguing theory is that Stallone may be one of the Elders of the Universe. If you know your Marvel comics, you may recall that the Elders include both the Collector and the Grandmaster, and they all had plans for the Infinity gems stones before Thanos took them for himself. It makes sense for the Elders to appear in this film, even if Gunn has already debunked that rumor. But perhaps Gunn is only doing that because we’ve gotten too close to the truth.
