Guardians Of The Galaxy 3: Sylvester Stallone Rejects, But James Gunn Is Also Facing Other Criticism…

MOVIE NEWS – Even Sylvester Stallone couldn’t fully commit to James Gunn’s script, while Guardians of the Galaxy 3 is getting plenty of other criticism…



The Guardians films have always had a childlike sense of humour. Guardians of the Galaxy 3 is no exception. But when James Gunn suggested an old-fashioned punchline to Sylvester Stallone, the Rocky star said he wasn’t going to say it. Then, of course, he was persuaded to say the line anyway.

Sylvester Stallone was a surprise guest star in Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2, where he played a Ravager named Stakar Ogord.

Although his character was mentioned, he was not seen in the Guardians of the Galaxy holiday special. He returns to the screen in the third instalment. However, the context of his appearance has not yet been revealed. It seems, however, that the line James Gunn suggested for the action hero was too far-fetched.

Speaking to Cinemablend, director Gunn and Guardians lead Chris Pratt recalled the moment when Gunn tried to make a dream come true by getting Stallone to utter the phrase, “I gotta go take a sh*t”. The moment played out something like this:

“Pratt: “Oh, remember, yeah, he was like, ‘I’m not going to say that…'” Gunn: “I said, ‘Okay, I gotta go take a sh*t.'” Pratt: “Yep. ‘I gotta go take a sh*t.’ And he goes, ‘I’m not going to say that, no. What? I gotta go take a sh*t?’ And you were like, ‘You just said it!'” Gunn: “(Laughing) I just wanted Sly to say, ‘I’m gonna go take a sh*t!'”

Whether the line will make it into the final cut in any way will be revealed later today when Guardians of the Galaxy 3 opens worldwide.


Has James Gunn cast his wife in Guardians of the Galaxy 3?!


Jennifer Holland has come in for some harsh criticism on the internet in recent years. Mainly because she has been in several projects directed/produced by James Gunn. Apparently, people’s biggest problem is that they are a married couple. But one MCU fan’s response to online trolls has taken the argument apart on one obvious point.

Several posts began to appear on social media when it was revealed that Holland would be appearing in a tiny role in Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3. This will be the latest Gunn project to feature his wife, following her roles in Suicide Squad, Peacemaker and Brightburn. As well as her character’s other DC appearances in Black Adam and Shazam! Fury of the Gods. However, responding to one complaint that Gunn had put his wife in a recent project, @jonnbridges called the hate campaign sexist and pointed out why.

“It’s no secret there’s a subset of geek fandom that are unashamedly misogynistic (hello Brie Larson haters!) but the hate for Jennifer Holland being a James Gunn mainstay is so clearly sexist when you just start naming Michael Rooker, Sean Gunn, Nathan Fillion, and so on…”

There really is no going back from the killer “stating the obvious” comment: if you look back at film history, many directors have stuck to a select few actors in their projects.

Gunn is no different; he has surrounded himself with people he knows he can work with.

Several of Gunn’s Guardians have recently talked about working with him again in the future. Whether as part of the DCU team, he is currently recruiting. Honestly, it wouldn’t be shocking if Chris Pratt, Dave Bautista, Pom Klementieff and Karen Gillan, to name a few, pop up in an upcoming DC project.

All of this essentially dismisses the idea that Jennifer Holland’s casting is the issue that some are making it out to be. She’s simply one of those people Gunn works well with – it would be a bit odd if she married him and didn’t get along with him – and is welcome to be around when he’s working on his films and TV series if they fit the role. We can expect to see him in Gunn’s future DC universe.
