It was reported, last week, by the Daily News that Sylvester Stallone was seen exiting an Atlanta hotel with script in hand. It was later revealed that the script was for Guardians of the Galaxy Vol.2. We now know Sly’s part in the sequel to one of Marvel’s best franchises!
Sylvester Stallone will be playing as a Ravager!
This news comes, courtesy of Heroic Hollywood who broke the news first.
For those of you who don’t remember who the Ravagers are, that’s the team of thieves that Starlord (Chris Pratt) was trying to avoid the entire movie. They are led by the blue skinned, whistling Yondu (Michael Rooker).
The casting seems a bit small for someone of Stallone’s caliber but it is said that it is just a cameo role. Perhaps it might be a cameo like Gina Carano in Deadpool. We saw a lot of her and we can only hope the same will happen for Stallone. Nevertheless, it’s going to make the movie that much more fun to try and find the Academy Award Nominee!
