Guardians Of The Galaxy Vol. 2 begins filming next month and it appears that Benicio Del Toro will not reprise his role as the Collector in the sequel.
Del Toro spoke with ComingSoon.net about the James Gunn sequel.
“I don’t think so,” Del Toro said when asked about The Collector returning. “They would have told me, I hope… I do hope to play that character again at some point.”
This doesn’t rule out a cameo, as Del Toro next project is produced by Disney as well. Filming begins on Rian Johnson’s Star Wars: Episode VIII.
Here is the confirmed cast for Guardians Of The Galaxy Vol. 2; Chris Pratt, Zoe Saldana, Dave Bautista, Vin Diesel, Bradley Cooper, and Pom Klementieff. Kurt Russell has yet to sign on with the project as Star Lord’s father.
Guardians Of The Galaxy Vol. 2 will be in theaters on May 5, 2017.
