guardians of the galaxy 2 credits

Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 flirts with self-parody in the home stretch, offering up five post-credits scenes to keep audiences in their seats. But these scenes aren’t lazy or dashed-off – some are funny little beats that tie up lingering threads from the main storyline, others lay the groundwork for future movies, and a few are are deeply nerdy references that exist to make Marvel aficionados cheer in their seats while their normal friends and family stare at them and wonder what the heck is going on.

And whether you understood exactly what was going on during the Guardians of the Galaxy 2 credits or were among those saying “What the heck?”, we’ve got something for you here. We’ve assembled everything you need to know about these scenes, including quotes from writer/director James Gunn and Marvel Studios president and producer Kevin Feige. Let’s dive in.

Major, major spoilers lie ahead, of course.

Starlight Sylvester Stallone

Back in 2014, we learned that screenwriter Gary Whitta (The Book of Eli, Rogue One: A Star Wars Story) had been tasked with penning the screenplay for a film adaptation of a six-issue Mark Millar comic called Starlight. Since then, things have been relatively quiet about the movie, but a new rumor states that 20th Century Fox is eyeing Sylvester Stallone to play the film’s lead character, a retired space hero named Duke McQueen who is called back into action one last time.

Read on to learn the latest Sylvester Stallone Starlight news.

Kurt Russell's Action Movie Crossover

Nowadays, everyone wants to make a shared cinematic universe in the same vein as the world that Marvel Studios has created for their comic book characters. But back in the 1980s, that idea was rather unique. In fact, the idea was so off-the-wall that when Kurt Russell proposed a shared universe that would bring together signature characters played by himself, Arnold Schwarzenegger, Sylvester Stallone and Bruce Willis, no one really wanted to listen to him.

Demolition Man Lawsuit

This fall will mark 24 years since the sci-fi action flick Demolition Man hit theaters, but Sylvester Stallone has just filed a lawsuit against Warner Bros. Pictures for “intentional dishonesty” in their accounting, thereby keeping some of the profits that are owed to the actor and his loan-out company Rogue Marble.

Why is this lawsuit being raised so long after the movie was released? Sylvester Stallone thinks the time is right to make a stink about this that will hopefully set a precedent to force reportedly notoriously dishonest “Hollywood Accounting” to give talent and production companies what’s owed to them.

Chuck Liev Schreiber

I’ve seen all of the Rocky movies a handful of times, but I’ve somehow never thought to do any research into writer/star Sylvester Stallone’s inspiration for his underdog boxing story. Sly apparently wrote the script in three and a half days after watching an unknown fighter named Chuck Wepner beat the odds and miraculously go 15 rounds against one of the greatest boxers of all time, Muhammad Ali, and now IFC Films is telling Wepner’s story in a new biopic starring Liev Schreiber. Check out the Chuck trailer below.

Sylvester Stallone in Guardians of the Galaxy 2

Rumors of Sylvester Stallone having a role in Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 first emerged in March of 2016, but we didn’t get confirmation of his participation in the Marvel Studios sequel until their panel at Comic-Con last summer. But here we are, one month away from release, and we still don’t know who Sylvester Stallone is playing in the cosmic comic book flick.

Recently, director James Gunn revealed that Smallville star Michael Rosenbaum also has a small role in Guardians of the Galaxy 2, and he added that the characters played by him and Sylvester Stallone “are very important to the Marvel Universe.” Now we may know which character Sylvester Stallone is playing in Guardians of the Galaxy 2.

Arnold Schwarzenegger Leaving The Expendables

The Expendables franchise is in even more trouble following Sylvester Stallone‘s disappointing departure from the action film series last week.

Much of the passion for this throwback action franchise comes from star and producer Sylvester Stallone, who rounded up a combination of his old action movie friends and some of the newer meatheads on the block for an assembly of mercenaries who shoot big guns, create big explosions and always take down the bad guy. Now that he’s gone, some of the franchise’s key players don’t have much of interest in returning, like Arnold Schwarzenegger. Read More »

The Expendables franchise

An Expendables 4 was scheduled to close out the series next year, but it might have to move forward without its star, Sylvester Stallone. The actor, who directed the first film in the series, has left the franchise over creative differences. Stallone may have been offered more than $20 million to play Barney Ross again – his upfront biggest paycheck to date – but disagreements with Nu Image/Millennium chief Avi Lerner led to his departure.

Below, learn more about why Stallone is finished with the series.
