Warching: Spoilers follow for Sylvester Stallone's character in Guardians of the Galaxy 2.

Following the Guardians of the Galaxy 2 Junior Novel and the casting sheet, now reported Guardians of the Galaxy 2 production notes further confirm Sylvester Stallone's character to be Stakar, aka Starhawk.

The Guardians of the Galaxy 2 production notes have Slvester Stallone offering plot details about Stakar:

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." 

So we see Sylvester Stallone is playing Stakar, a Ravager. It remains to be seen whether Sylvester Stallone will actually be anything like Starkhawk from the comics.
