Terry Crews joins the Guardians of the Galaxy… in a different way
Apparently he shot scenes for an upcoming Disney World ride which casts him as Centurion Tal Marik, a member of the Nova Corps. The Nova Corps were the military force in Xandar, which was also the setting of the climax of the first movie directed by James Gunn.
Crews’ appearance here will also complement the appearance of Glen Close, who will reprise her role from the first movie.
The casting is likely stemmed from Crews’ interaction with the GOTG director who posted his desire to have ROM the Space Knight in his future Guardians projects but is sadly unable to do so because of IP/ Copyright issues concerning the silver armored spaceman.
Alas I cannot as Marvel no longer holds the rights to Rom – just to some other Spaceknights and parts of the story created in the comics – otherwise, believe you me, ol’ toaster head would probably be in the Guardians by now. https://t.co/UPw9US7rmf
