MARVEL wants to see more of Sylvester Stallone’s character from Guardians of the Galaxy: Volume 2.

In an interview with the Toronto Sun, director James Gunn suggested that the studio has plans to use the actor in future films, although not necessarily in a Guardians of the Galaxy: Vol 3.

“My plan is to see more of [Stallone’s character]. “I’m not sure about him appearing in Vol. 3, we’ll have to see about that, but it’s our plan to see more of Stallone. [Marvel Studios chief] Kevin [Feige] and I are working on what is going to become of the Marvel Cosmic Universe and where it’s going to go. We plan to see the rest of them in the future.”

Anyone who has seen Guardians of the Galaxy: Vol 2 will probably guess that the ‘they’ referred to by Gunn is the team seen with Stallone during one of the mid-credits sequence of the film’s climax – a team that further includes Ving Rhames’ Charlie-27 and Michelle Yeoh’s Aleta Ogord.

Stallone himself plays Stakar, AKA Starhawk — one of the original comic book Guardians.

Gunn also intends to remain a part of the Marvel scene, although he has maintained that he’s not committed to Guardians past the third movie. “Basically, the story of this group ends with Vol. 3,” he has previously stated.

But he is planning future Marvel movies: “I’m helping to decide what projects we’ll be pursuing outside of Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 and what the next cosmic characters we will focus on.

“[And] it’s my plan to have Sly — and I talked to him last night — to find a place for him in the future of the Marvel Universe.”
