Sylvester Stallone plays Stakar Ogord in Guardians of the Galaxy 2, who is known as Starhawk in the Marvel Comics.
"We shot the first Guardians in England, but because Pinewood Atlanta has so much sound stage space, we were able to have the entire production base on the lot", says James Gunn, the film's director and co-writer.
Quill, Gamora, Drax and Rocket are back. I don't know if he thinks it is cool but he has seen the movies that I am in. The nostalgic soundtrack makes a return, as does the generous heaping of wit and humour which separates Marvel's outings from DC's. The all-new Guardians of the Galaxy Twin Pack features the iconic Groot and Rocket with Rocket appearing on a twin-pack exclusive mini PEZ dispenser. For instance, we got to sit down with some of the cast, and they told us about their favorite music, and we also asked them about who their favorite characters from the film are.

During these travels, he gains possession of the Soul Infinity Stone - one of six ingots in the Marvel Universe, which each bestow huge power onto their beholder, which are being hunted down by the intergalactic warlord, and father of the Guardian's Gamora, Thanos. In a neat twist, certain songs also act as crucial story elements, which makes the eclectic playlist feel more necessary than additional. "I don't know where he comes up with these things", Gunn said.
