Well, this is a surprise! While it’s widely believed that Kurt Russell is playing Star-Lord’s father in Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2, could Sylvester Stallone have been secretly cast to take on that pivotal role in the highly anticipated sequel?
That remains to be seen, but The New York Daily News have spotted the Creed star leaving a hotel in Atlanta where the cast of Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 are staying and then entering a car which is usually used to transport Chris Pratt to and from set. He even had what appeared to be a screenplay in his hand.

It could be that the actor just has a cameo, but regardless of whether he’s going to make a blink and you’ll miss it appearance or has a significant role in Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2, Stallone’s involvement is obviously no longer a secret. As a result, it will be interesting to see whether Marvel or director James Gunn end up confirming this story.
There have been no previous rumours about Stallone showing up in Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2, and it is of course always possible that some wires have got crossed here and he has nothing to do with the production, but still, this is certainly an intriguing bit of news and we’re eager to see how it plays out.
