GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY VOL. 3 Adds BORAT 2 Breakout Maria Bakalova In A Key Role

Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 wrapped filming last month, but we're still just finding out about new cast additions, and it's now been announced that Borat 2 breakout Maria Bakalova will have a key role.

Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 director James Gunn confirmed that he finished shooting the Marvel Studios threequel last month, but we're still finding out about new cast members.

We recently learned that The Suicide Squad star Daniela Melchior had signed on for an undisclosed role, and Deadline is now reporting that Borat Subsequent Moviefilm breakout Maria Bakalova will also appear.

As per usual, details on her character are being kept under wraps, but she is said to have a "key role."

The Bulgarian up-and-comer earned an Academy Award nomination for her work on the Borat sequel, and also have A24 slasher parody Bodies Bodies Bodies on the horizon.

GOTG Vol. 3 story details are still a closely guarded secret, but a few nuggets have been revealed over the past year or so. We do know that Gamora (Zoe Saldana) will be a big part of the movie, and a report from last year indicated that her relationship with Nebula (Karen Gillan) is going to be the main focus. Of course, this Gamora is a Variant of the original who doesn't know any of her teammates, so we can probably expect a very different dynamic between the "sisters" this time.

Saldana and Gillan will be joined by the returning Pom Klementieff (Mantis), Dave Bautista (Drax), Chris Pratt (Star-Lord), Sean Gunn (Rocket/Kraglin), and Sylvester Stallone as Stakar Ogord/Starhawk, with Will Poulter on board as Adam Warlock.
