James Gunn just revealed the names of added cast members, who are important to Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 that we had no idea about… nor do we know the roles they are going to be playing. The director of the movie – which is less than two months to it’s release date – said this during his appearance on The Adam Carolla Show.
Rocky himself, Sylvester Stallone is one of the added cast members we had no idea about, and also Michael rosembaum who played Lex Luthor in Smallville as the second.
“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 which people don’t know about. Sylvester Stallone plays one of these characters…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.”
Michael Rosembaum also expressed his excitememnt on social media after being quiet about it for so long.
