Several James Gunn regulars, including Nathan Fillion, Michael Rooker, and Jennifer Holland, showed up in Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3, and the director has now revealed that another The Suicide Squad cast member made a brief cameo appearance.
In a behind-the-scenes photo shared as part of a Twitter Movies GOTG Vol. 3 thread, Gunn can be seen posing for a snap alongside Chris Pratt (Star-Lord) and Pete Davidson (Bupkis, SNL, Bodies Bodies Bodies), who played Blackguard in the recent DC Comics film.
It seems Davidson was one of The High Evolutionary's guards taken out by Quill and Groot during a key third act action sequence. Most of the guards were wearing helmets, but based on Gunn's caption, Davidson's face may have been visible. If you spotted him, let us know in the comments.
"With my pal Pete Davidson who showed up one day to hang out and to shoot a cameo (it’s in the movie, but you have to look closely to find him…)"
"In Marvel Studios’ Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 our beloved band of misfits are settling into life on Knowhere. But it isn’t long before their lives are upended by the echoes of Rocket’s turbulent past." "Peter Quill, still reeling from the loss of Gamora, must rally his team around him on a dangerous mission to save Rocket’s life—a mission that, if not completed successfully, could quite possibly lead to the end of the Guardians as we know them."
Gunn writes and directs Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3, which stars Chris Pratt, Zoe Saldaña, Dave Bautista, Karen Gillan, Pom Klementieff, featuring Vin Diesel as Groot, Bradley Cooper as Rocket, Sean Gunn, Chukwudi Iwuji, Will Poulter, and Maria Bakalova. Kevin Feige is the producer and Louis D’Esposito, Victoria Alonso, Nikolas Korda, Simon Hatt, and Sara Smith serve as executive producers.
Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 arrives in theaters on May 5, 2023.
