Earlier today, the world lost a music legend, David Bowie. The artist passed away from cancer at the age of 69.
Bowie as well as his wonderful musical career, often took roles in films such as Labyrinth, The Prestige and even Zoolander, and it looks as though Guardians Of The Galaxy director James Gunn was hoping Bowie would make an appearance in the upcoming Marvel sequel.
Bowie's 1971 song "Moonage Daydream" made it into the original Guardians Of The Galaxy, so the natural progression would of course be to cameo the singer in the next film, James Gunn said the following:
"Just a very short while ago Kevin Feige and I were talking about a cameo role in ‘Guardians Vol. 2,’ and he brought up Bowie’s name. I told him nothing in the world would make me happier, but I heard from common friends he wasn’t doing well. We heard back that he was okay and it could potentially happen."
Having Bowie cameo in Guardians 2 would have been a great thing, he's of course relevant to the series as a popular music icon and would have fit right into the mix.
Still expect to hear David Bowie in the sequel as I'd imagine he'll yet again be featured on the soundtrack. James Gunn pointed out that Marvel has the rights to use Bowie's tracks for the film.
Guardians Of The Galaxy Vol. 2 hits theaters May 5th 2017.
