Sylvester Stallone plays Stakar Ogord in Guardians of the Galaxy 2, who is known as Starhawk in the Marvel Comics.
Stallone previously offered up he was inspired by his Rambo character to join the Marvel Cinematic Universe, and production notes revealed the following:
A lifelong respected Ravager, Stakar isn't fond of Yondu. Sylvester Stallone offers the character's backstory: "Stakar had banished Yondu many years earlier for doing something wrong and he finally sees him almost twenty years later at this particular establishment called the Iron Lotus where all of the Ravagers go to blow off steam. And then we have a confrontation which is pretty intense and it's kind of a father-son type of thing and now he's going to have to pay the piper. His karma has come back ten-fold.
Director James Gunn also offered up he has further plans for Sly in the Marvel Cosmic Universe.
