Sylvester Stallone was spotted on the sets of “Guardians of the Galaxy Vol 2.” in Atlanta sparking rumours that he is playing a role in the movie. And while fans are speculating his character, news is that the “Guardians of Galaxy” sequel is set to bring in Howard the duck too.
Stallone has long been known for his high octane movies and action roles. His most famous being John Rambo and Rocky Balboa, a small time boxer. However, the actor on few occasions did dabble in different genres. He gave his voice for a bunch of animated movies including “Antz” in 1998, when he voiced the Weaver and “Zookeeper” in 2011 as Joe the lion. He even played a negative character the Toymaker in “Spy Kids 3-D” that released in 2003.
Speculations started about his new venture when NY Daily News revealed that Stallone was staying in the same hotel as the rest of the cast of “Guardians of the Galaxy Vol 2.” He was also spotted with a script on the sets of the movie. The producers have not announced the role being played by Stallone. Some publications revealed that he was spotted in a “Judge Dredd like uniform costume.” However, it is now being said that he will be featured as one of the Ravagers in the movie.
According to Yahoo movies, there has been a lot of speculation with regards to Sly’s character. It was thought, at first, that he might essay the role of Star-Lord’s father. However, the news was proved false when it was revealed that actor Kurt Russel would be playing him. Later on, some wondered, if Sly will be the voice of Ego. Again, that was not true.
Cinema Blend guesses that Stallone’s character might be one of the new recruits. Also given his penchant for action heroes, tough-guy acts, adventure and weaponry, it wouldn’t be surprising id he is shown as a leader for some different faction of ravagers.
In addition to Stallone, Onlocations Vacations has revealed that Howard the Duck too was seen on the sets of “Guardians of the Galaxy Vol 2.” The duck has filmed some scene for the movie already. According to Cinema Blend, Howard the Duck is one of the most iconic and notorious Marvel characters of all time. However, there are no official reports so far that indicate how he will be incorporated into the story.
