James Gunn’s Open to a GOTG 3 Role for Steven Tyler

The more Marvel Studios films rake in at the box office, the more we hear from actors who would love join the Marvel Cinematic Universe. The latest addition to that list is Aerosmith frontman and former “American Idol” judge Steven Tyler.

In an interview with People to promote his newest horror movie “Happy Birthday,” Tyler called out “Guardians of the Galaxy” director James Gunn in hopes to land a role in the cosmic franchise’s third film.

Well, Gunn heard about Tyler’s request, and responded to it during one of his infamous Facebook Q&As. “Yes, I did hear that Steven Tyler wants to be in ‘Guardians of the Galaxy.’ He gave me a shout-out the other day in an interview. He said, ‘James Gunn are you listening?’ The answer is: Steven, yes I am listening.”

The director added, “I’m a big fan of Steven Tyler‘s. I had the pleasure of directing his daughter Liv in a movie [“Super” in 2010] in which she was fantastic, and I met him for a few seconds at a screening of that movie. He’s a cool guy. And of course I would love to work with Steven Tyler sometime.”

Gunn went on to post the following tweet, suggesting a very possible appearance of Tyler in “Guardians of the Galaxy 3,” if the film happens.

The franchise’s long-awaited sequel, “Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2,” boasts a star-studded cast, inclusing Kurt Russell as Star Lord’s father — Ego the Living Planet — and Sylvester Stallone as a member of the Nova Corps. If Tyler has his way, “Guardians of the Galaxy 3” could add even more star power to the mix.

“Guardians of the Galaxy Vo. 2” hits theaters on May 5, 2017.
