Is Quasar in GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY VOL. 3?
Writer-Director James Gunn is currently hard at work on the screenplay for Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3. While details for the story are currently slim, James Gunn has been known to let certain bits of information slip via his twitter account. One recent tweet suggests that the superhero Quasar might make an appearance in Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3.
For the uninitiated, this post about the director's old VCR means nothing. However, if you look at the name of the VCR, you will observe that it is a QUASAR brand VCR. Why would James Gunn suddenly remember that his old Quasar had wood paneling? I don't believe it is a stretch to imagine that James Gunn thought of the character and was reminded of his old VCR.
Does this mean Quasar will be included in Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3, or in another Marvel Cinematic Universe film? Could Quasar have been merely suggested for a role in the movie? Who knows! It's just fun to theorize.
If you don't know who Quasar is, here's the rundown: Quasar is a former S.H.I.E.L.D. agent that comes into possession of Quantum Bands that give him super powers. He tends to go on Galaxy saving missions, so he would fall in line with GotG3. More info on Quasar can be found here.
In the meantime, feast your eyes on what has to be the most ridiculous Quasar comic book cover. Clearly James Gunn needs to incorporate this and make Junior (in Space!) - while that was intended to be sarcasm, I think I'd still watch a film like that...
