Sylvester Stallone revealed he is returning for Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3. Stallone will be reprising his role as Stakar Ogord aka Starhawk. With a new image, Stallone unveiled the new costume. check out the new image below.
Director James Gunn shared a photo from the first day of filming on set, which included familiar faces like Dave Bautista, Pom Klementieff, Sean Gunn, Chris Pratt, Karen Gillan, and Zoe Saldana, as well as newcomers Will Poulter and Chukwudi Iwuji, who will play Adam Warlock and Chukwudi Iwuji, respectively. Stallone’s friendship with Gunn extends beyond the Marvel realm to the DC universe, as the two collaborated on The Suicide Squad, where Stallone voiced King Shark, a part-shark, part-human villain.
According to Slashfilm, Stallone’s Stakar Ogord is a good character with more depth than some of the more committee-led superhero movies would have allowed, praise be to James Gunn. The captain spent most of the second “Guardians” film at odds with Yondu (Michael Rooker), as the latter had been exiled for breaking the ravager code and engaging in child-trafficking (it’s complicated). While I can’t recall a single line from Star-Lord, this dressing-down from Starhawk to Yondu as he is being exiled is top-shelf Mean Girl villainy. In other words, a really fancy way to say, “You can’t sit with us”:
“You may dress like us, but you’ll never hear the horns of freedom when you die, Yondu, and the colors of Ogord will never flash over your grave.”
Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 is set to hit theaters on May 5, 2023.
