Benicio Del Toro Out Of “Guardians 2”

Benicio Del Toro says he doesn’t think that his character of Taneleer Tivan (aka The Collector) will be making an appearance in James Gunn’s soon to film “Guardians of the Galaxy, Vol. 2” at Marvel Studios.

With much of the casting for the sequel locked in place, the Oscar winning actor was asked about his potential involvement in the film by Coming Soon.

His response surprisingly revealed that he’s not likely to be a part of it: “I don’t think so. They would have told me, I hope… I do hope to play that character again at some point.”

The confirmed cast for the follow-up includes Chris Pratt, Zoe Saldana, Dave Bautista, Vin Diesel, and Bradley Cooper. Kurt Russell is also said to be in talks to play Star-Lord’s mysterious father.
