Guardians of the Galaxy is full of greatness in many forms: breathtaking scenarios, awesome music, funny dialogues, and amazing actors playing very interesting and colourful (pun totally intended) characters. One of our favourites was definitely Benicio del Toro as the Collector.
Since we first saw him in the post-credits scene of Thor: The Dark World, we were fascinated by his mysterious vibe. There’s a lot of mystery surrounding the Collector, and although we got to see his vast collection in Guardians of the Galaxy, we still want to know how he got all those specimens and things.
Lucky us, it looks like we will get more of this character in the Guardians sequel.
Zoe Saldana let slip the news in a Facebook video on her husband’s page where she praises Benicio del Toro’s work in Sicario. The video is in Spanish, which makes it doubly incredible. I guarantee that Zoe Saldana speaking Spanish will give you life. So much life.
Anyway, after saying that we (as in, the latino community) should feel proud of Benicio del Toro, who is a “damn incredible actor” and an exceptional one, she ended the video with “I’ll see you in Guardians!”.
And that, my friends, is how we know the Collector will most likely be back in Guardians of the Galaxy Vol 2.
Will he have a bigger role? Will we see him just for a few minutes, again? Or will he just be in a cameo appearance or the post-credits scene? Only time will tell… or James Gunn. You know he is pretty open with his fans.
All the Guardians are coming back for the sequel, plus Yondu (Michael Rooker) and Nebula (Karen Gillan). Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 will add a new member to the team. We have no idea who it will be, but deep inside our hearts we are hoping it will be a female hero.
Benicio del Toro is slowly but surely taking over the sci-fi world, as he is also part of the cast of Star Wars: Episode VIII. The more Benicio, the better!
Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 will start shooting in February for a May 5, 2017 release.
