Sylvester Stallone refused to say one of James Gunn’s youthful lines for Guardians of the Galaxy Vol.3

The Protector of the Galaxy Movies have always had something of a youthful sense of humor about them, but when James Gunn suggested a bodily function-based joke to Sylvester Stallone, he was Rocky star said he wouldn’t say it – before being tricked into saying the line anyway.

Sylvester Stallone became a surprise guest star in Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2, who plays a Ravager named Stakar Ogord. While his character received a mention, he wasn’t seen in the Guardians of the Galaxy Christmas Specialhe will be back on screen Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3, but the context of his appearance has yet to be revealed. However, it seems that a line James Gunn suggested to him was a step too far for the action hero.

Speaking to Cinemablend, director Gunn and Guardians boss Chris Pratt recalled the moment Gunn tried to make a dream come true by getting Stallone to utter the line, “I gotta go take a sh*t. The moment played out something like this:

Pratt: “Oh, remember, yeah, he was like, ‘I’m not going to say that…'” Gunn: “I said, ‘Okay, I have to shit myself.'” Pratt: “Yeah. ‘I have to go and take a shit.’ And he says, ‘I’m not going to say that, no. What? I have to go shit?’ And you said, ‘You just said it!’” Gunn: “(laughs) I just wanted Sly to say, ‘I’m going to go and go take a shit!’”

Whether the line will make it to the final cut in any way remains to be seen this weekend Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 will be released worldwide.

While it’s odd to assume that any film grossing around $110 million in its opening weekend is some kind of disappointment, the MCU has braced itself to expect huge viewership over the first weekend of a film’s release. While current forecasts suggest so Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 Could hit $120 million domestically, but lately forecasts haven’t been exactly right, giving the film room to do better or worse if the weekend’s numbers come in.

Compared to James Gunn’s previous Marvel offerings, the film will likely top 2014’s Protector of the Galaxywhich has cost $94 million but will not be enough Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2That’s $146 million. Compared to other recent MCU films, the $120 million mark will be just over Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania‘s $106 million but behind all 2022 releases on the home front. If Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 can surpass it QuantumaniaThe unimpressive $465 million worldwide gross then it might fuel the belief that the February release was just a minor blip in the Marvel landscape, but if it falls short it could raise uncertainty about the future profitability of the franchise enlarge.
