Miley Cyrus Scores Secret Role in ‘Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2’
The singer just landed a major role in Marvel's Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 and we are more than stoked.
Marvel confirmed the big news to Entertainment Tonight on Friday while promoting the anticipated superhero sequel, which hits theatres on May 5.
While the "We Can't Stop" hitmaker won't actually appear in the film, she is the voice of a hot new character named Mainframe.
Fans of the Marvel comic books will recognize Miley's character as an evolved technology who is the alternate version of Vision, another artificial intelligence in the comics.
While Miley's new role comes as big news to fans, the rest of the Guardians of the Galaxy cast has known for quite some time.
"I heard that she’s uncredited and a voice somewhere," David Bautista, who plays Drax, told the Huffington Post.
Guardians of the Galaxy director James Gunn and Marvel president Kevin Feige also teased audiences at a press junket on Thursday.
"Have you told anyone who Mainframe is?" Kevin asked James.
"I haven’t told anyone, yeah. Should we?" James said, before realizing he did already tell someone. "Oh, I think I actually did. I blew it. I told one person."
"It’ll get out," Feige responded.
Miley's role isn't the only surprise news for the movie. This week, it was also revealed that David Hasslehoff provided the vocals for the film's only original song, "Guardian's Inferno."
"You know, I asked James Gunn why he chose me. He said, 'When I was eight years old, I saw a show called Knight Rider [and] since that day I've always wanted to meet you and to kind of live by the laws of the Knight Rider," David told Entertainment Tonight.
Does this mean we'll see Miley and her fiance's bro Chris Hemsworth (AKA Thor) on the big screen one day? We hope so!
