Following David Bowie's death in January 2016, Guardians of the Galaxy director James Gunn revealed that he'd wanted to include a cameo from the legendary musician in Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2. Today, while answering questions during a Facebook Live session, Gunn revealed his idea for Bowie's cameo.
"I did talk to David Bowie's people about him being in a cameo in Guardians of the Galaxy," Gunn said. "It would have been as one of the Ravagers, along with Michelle Yeoh and Ving Rhames and Sylvester Stallone and Michael Rosenbaum, but, unfortunately, David Bowie passed away."
