Sylvester Stallone Has Played More Comic Book Characters Than You Likely Realize

In 2017, Sylvester Stallone joined the biggest franchise in the world when he made his way into the Marvel Cinematic Universe timeline. Partnering with James Gunn, the action icon plays the small role of Stakar Ogord in “Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2.” In the film, Stakar is an old Ravager associate of Yondu Udonta (Michael Rooker) who grows resentful of Yondu for taking part in the child trafficking of Peter Quill (Chris Pratt). However, he ultimately grows to respect Yondu by the end of the film, even attending his funeral along with several other Ravagers.

Though Stakar’s part in “Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2” is relatively small, it hints at a greater role for the character in the cosmic side of the MCU. “This is something that takes place in a whole other sphere where James and the Marvel people have created their own world,” Stallone said during a press tour for the film (via Geek Tyrant). “So I said, yeah, let me visit. Let me drop in here and see what’s up, it’s where the future’s going, you know, and it was great.” In the comics, Stakar Ogord becomes the superpowered character known as Starhawk, but Stallone’s version mostly sticks to the background in “Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2.”
