guardians of the galaxy

The Marvel home video releases are always loaded with extras and ‘Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2’ is certainly no different.  We’ve already shown you the disco version of ‘Guardians Inferno‘ featuring David Hasselhoff.  Now get ready for more laughs from the cast, and like Hasselhoff, the biggest guffaws come from another action hero of yesteryear, Sylvester Stallone.

Stallone was a curveball thrown at fans when his name was announced as joining the cast of James Gunn‘s off-the-wall space opera and for a while, the identity of his character was kept a secret.  Eventually, however, it was revealed that his role was that of Stakar, leader of the “Ravengers”… “Rav-UH-gers”… or something like that.

Check out the gag reel and you’ll see what I mean:

Stakar and Michael Rooker’s Yondu were members of The Ravagers, a gang of bounty hunters which Stakar… obviously didn’t form or name.  Yondu was kicked out for kidnapping a young Peter Quill, the son of Michael Douglas’ Ego the Living Planet, something that went against the Ravager code.  Yondu formed his own band of mercenaries but has spend his remaining career avoiding his onetime allies.

As you may recall, Stakar (called Starhawk in the comics) had assembled his own ragtag band for… well, the future will reveal that.  But his team consisted of his right hand man the crystallized Martinex played by Michael Rosenbaum who had a minor (and unrecognizable) role throughout the film, Charlie-27 played by Ving Rhames, Aleta Ogord played by Michelle Yeoh, the wife of Stakar, who, in the comics shares a form with Stakar so that only one can exist in this reality at a time, artificial intelligence Mainframe, voiced by Miley Cyrus and red dragon Krugarr,

Interestingly, in the comics Yondu, Martinex and Charlie-27 were the ORIGINAL Guardians of the Galaxy with Starhawk joining soon after.  The movie is based on more recent comic lineups.

Are you excited to relive the thrills, humor and classic rock of this sequel?

‘Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2’ will be released digitally on HD, 4K Ultra HD, and Disney Movies on Aug. 8, and physically on 4K Ultra HD, Blu-ray, and DVD on Aug. 22.
