A select few go to experience Guardians of the Galaxy Vol 2. early tonight weeks before the general audience. Just before the show goes on Marvel released production notes on the film and in that we find who Sylvester Stallone's mystery character is
Over on Twitter, @StitchKingdom discovered that Sylvester role in the production notes is Stakar.
“A lifelong respected Ravager, Stakar isn’t fond of Yondu. Sylvester Stallone offers the character’s backstory: “Stakar had banished Yondu many years earlier for doing something wrong and he finally sees him almost twenty years later at this particular establishment called the Iron Lotus where all of the Ravagers go to blow off steam. And then we have a confrontation which is pretty intense and it’s kind of a father/son type of thing and now he’s going to have to pay the piper. His karma has come back ten-fold.”
Now, for comic book readers Stakar should sound familiar, in the comics Stakar is better known as Starhawk. The cosmic character helped the Guardians of the 31st century and the son of quasar and Kismet.
Later on in the production notes Stallone stated “It’s a great backdrop for Stakar and the Ravager world. I really enjoyed working on that set with Michael Rooker and it’s been educational for me. I really enjoyed the craftsmanship of the sets.” while working on the Iron Lotus Set. For more nerd news keep it right here at Nerds With Words.
