Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 is still months away from release... but things look pretty damn good for the future of the franchise. The series is easily one of the most popular within the Marvel Cinematic Universe, and it's pretty easy to imagine Marvel working to complete a full trilogy even if the first sequel is a let (which we certainly don't think it will be). As a result, there is already plenty of anticipation for what could wind up being called Guardians of the Galaxy 3 - but the project has picked up interest from one interesting individual in particular: Aerosmith frontman Steven Tyler.
The musician/actor recently had the opportunity to have a sizable role in the new indie horror movie Happy Birthday, and it was while sitting down with People magazine that he revealed his interest in being a part of the Marvel family -- specifically out in the cosmos with writer/director James Gunn's Guardians of the Galaxy. Discussing his feelings about acting post-Happy Birthday and his potential future as an actor, Steven Tyler said,
Steven Tyler, as mentioned, is best known as the lead singer of Aerosmith, but he does have some acting experience under his belt. In addition to playing himself in movies like Wayne's World 2 and Be Cool, he's also played legitimate roles -- such as in Robert Zemeckis' The Polar Express and Epic. Of course, he's also spent time as an American Idol judge, which is a certain level of performance as well. And let's not forget that Tyler already has a family connection within the Marvel Cinematic Universe as well, as his daughter, Liv Tyler, played Betty Ross in The Incredible Hulk.
Regardless of his experience and connections, however, whether or not Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 could actually find room for Steven Tyler is a legitimate question. The first film already had a massive ensemble cast including Chris Pratt, Zoe Saldana, Dave Bautista, Vin Diesel, Bradley Cooper, Karen Gillan, John C. Reilly, Michael Rooker and more, and the upcoming sequel is adding to that group with exciting stars like Kurt Russell and Pom Klementieff. I suppose it's possible that Tyler could wind up being given a small but important part -- like the one that Sylvester Stallone will be playing in Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2.
