James Gunn Casts Doubt on That Sly Stallone Guardians 2 Rumor



One of the bigger rumors over the last couple of weeks is that Sylvester Stallone would appear in Guardians of the Galaxy Vol 2 in an unknown role. The origin of the rumor is a paparazzi photo of Sly leaving a hotel near where they are filming the movie in Atlanta with a script in hand. That’s it. No other real supporting evidence.

The rumor has gone nuclear over the last few days with people claiming he’ll be the voice of Mogo or even Richard Rider (despite Gunn saying in the past he wouldn’t be doing Rider). Now James Gunn has posted a cryptic message on Facebook, and while he didn’t mention the Sly rumor it’s the only really crazy GoTG2 rumor that’s been going viral lately:


After a huge fight with El Mayimbe at Heroic Hollywood over a false scoop about Star-Lord’s dad, Gunn swore off debunking rumors about the movie. However for him to come out and make a comment like that one, it means one of the big rumors flying around right now is really false.
