Even though Guardians of the Galaxy 2 is several years away, there has been a lot of talk over what moviegoers can expect from the next installment - especially in the way of new faces. In addition to a large portion of the original cast returning, director James Gunn has said that we will meet "a couple of new characters who will be very important to Guardians movies and probably important to the Marvel Universe as a whole." Granted, it will be great to see our the rogue adventurers return to the big screen, but with comic book movies, change is important, so including new people will be a welcome addition.

Although they may not be as well-known as the characters from Earth, Marvel’s cosmic players are numerous, so Gunn and the creative team will have a lot to pick and choose from when it comes to adding new players to Guardians of the Galaxy 2. While we can already rule out several characters (don’t expect to see Rocket’s soulmate), there are still many individuals who could be introduced, whether it’s the team opening up their ranks to others, a new ally or another enemy. Taking into account that these people could also be important to the MCU, here are the characters who fit the criteria for appearing in the 2017 blockbuster.

Major Victory

James Gunn has already said that he wants Peter Quill to be the only primary human in Guardians of the Galaxy 2, but there might be some wiggle room to feature one who happens to be superpowered. Major Victory, also known as Vance Astro, was part of the original Guardians of the Galaxy roster. Originally a U.S. astronaut, he was kept in suspended animation for one of his missions, during which time he developed psionic powers. When he woke up, it was a thousand years later. After working with the original Guardians, he eventually made it back to the present-day and teamed up with the modern incarnation of the team on several occasions.

He may look alien, but that colored appearance is actually a copper-alloy suit that he wore out in space. The time traveling elements of his history might need to be altered for the MCU, but it would be fun to see an extraordinary human fighting alongside Quill and the others. For an extra degree of connectivity, he could also be given him a juiced-up version of Captain America’s shield, showing off his fandom for the Avenger.
