Production on Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 is underway, but will James Gunn make good on his promise to cast Steven Tyler in the film?
The third installment in the Gaurdians of the Galaxy saga is rumored to be the end of the team as we know it. However, his appearance in Thor: Love and Thunder, the I Am Groot animation, the Christmas special and, of course, volume 3 are still ahead. Before the possible end, we remember James Gunn’s old promise to include Steven Tyler in Guardians 3 and we wonder if he’ll deliver.

The anecdote dates back to October 2016, when the Aerosmith vocalist was promoting the movie Happy Birthday, an occasion he took the opportunity to send a message to James Gunn when being interviewed by People magazine. Tyler said, “I hope [la audiencia] enjoyment [Happy Birthday]. I know what I did! And it made me want to do more movies, I would do anything to be in Guardians of the Galaxy 3. Are you listening, James Gunn?
Later, during a question and answer session on Facebook, the director said: “Yes, I heard that Steven Tyler wants to be in Guardians of the Galaxy. He gave me a shout out the other day in an interview. He said, ‘James Gunn, are you listening?’ The answer is: Steven, yes, I do. And I’m a huge fan of Steven Tyler. I had the pleasure of directing his daughter Liv in a film. [Super, de 2010] in which he was fantastic, and I treated him for a few seconds at the screening of the film. He is a cool guy. And of course, I’d love to work with Steven Tyler sometime.”
Shortly after, he commented on it again on his Twitter account:
If I did Vol 3, sure. i love @IamStevenT. Love his work from him & he’s a very warm guy. https://t.co/DGITBILZAv

Does Steven Tyer exist in Marvel Comics?
Now that we remind James Gunn of his promise and we hope he keeps it so we can see the legendary Steven Tyler in Guardians 3, we also want to remember an anecdote. We mean that in Marvel Comics there is a homonymous character of the singer.
Marvel Comics’ Steven Tyler appeared in 1976’s Eternals #6 as a creation of Jack Kirby. He was a SHIELD agent sent to investigate a white dome that suddenly appeared around the City of the Space Gods in the Andes mountains, after the Fourth Host of Celestials.
