James Gunn reveals one Guardians of the Galaxy Volume 3 stars had a hidden double role

The Marvel and DC director revealed that one of the Guardians played two characters

James Gunn has revealed that one Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 star actually had two roles in the recent Marvel movie.

The third and final instalment of James Gunn’s Guardians of the Galaxy trilogy opened in theatres earlier this week, with some fans calling it ‘the best Marvel film in years’.

However, according to the director, there are some unsolved Easter eggs that many film fans are yet to find.

What’s more, Gunn has also confirmed that a wholesome theory relating to the gentle giant, Groot, is true, too.

And following on from his previous revelations, the director has now disclosed that one of the Guardians actually played two roles in the superhero movie.

You might know Gunn’s brother, Sean Gunn as Kraglin Obfonteri - a former Ravanger who was loyal to Yondu Udonta (Michael Rooker).

But did you know that Sean also voiced young Rocket in the movie?

Gunn made the revelation yesterday (May 6) via Twitter when he tweeted: “I have a few minutes to answer some questions and will do so below.

“2 rules: 1) It must be a question with a yes or no answer and 2) it must be about Guardians of the Galaxy Vol 3. Commence!”

Actor Josh Horowitz then wrote to Gunn and asked him: “Did Bradley [Cooper] do all the young Rocket voice work too?”

Gunn replied and wrote: “No (Noa Raskin is baby Rocket, @seangunn is Young Rocket)”

And MCU fans are taken aback, with one saying “Whoa. Did not realise” and another saying “Wow @seangunn… Talk about being versatile.”

While someone else said: "I was so curious about this one!!!"


Elsewhere in the fan Q&A, Gunn revealed that some of the Guardians cast members are also due to appear in the forthcoming Superman Legacy movie.

One person wrote: “Will any cast member for GOTG be in Superman Legacy?”

And Gunn’s reply was a short yet sweet 'Yes'.

At this moment in time, we don’t know whether that will be one Marvel Cinematic Universe actor or whether a plethora of them will be hopping over.

Gunn is currently working on the upcoming DC movie and just last month confirmed that it is in early pre-production.

As well as writing the film, he is also sitting in the director's chair, with the movie reportedly planning to 'introduce a brand-new version of Superman'.

According to Geek Tyrant, the story will chronicle 'Superman’s journey to reconcile his Kryptonian heritage with his human upbringing as Clark Kent of Smallville, Kansas'.

“He is the embodiment of truth, justice and the American way, guided by human kindness in a world that sees kindness as old-fashioned.” the publication went on to say.

Superman Legacy is currently slated to release sometime in 2025.

Gunn’s farewell to the MCU, Guardians of the Galaxy Vol 3, is out in cinemas now.
