Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 Adds The Suicide Squad’s Daniela Melchior In A Minor Role: Report

Suicide Squad star Daniela Melchior will appear in Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 in a minor role, reports Deadline, reuniting her with director James Gunn.

However, Gunn said the actress won’t be playing Moondragon, as had been speculated online. Melchior becomes the latest addition to the ever-expanding Marvel Cinematic Universe.

The expected trio, featuring Chris Pratt, Zoe Saldana, Vin Diesel, Dave Bautista, Bradley Cooper, Sylvester Stallone, Karen Gillan, Elizabeth Debicki and Will Poulter, wrapped filming in early May.

After production wrapped, Gunn hinted at the film’s inclusion of an “unannounced actor”. Melchior isn’t the individual in question, according to Deadline, and neither is Keanu Reeves, whose name had been floated by the rumor mill.

While the premise of Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 has remained a mystery, with earlier chapters introducing half-human, half-alien Peter Quill, aka Star-Lord (Pratt), and his band of intergalactic criminals as they battle various dangers to their cosmos. Gunn’s Guardians of the Galaxy trilogy will end with Vol. 3.

In November 2021, filming for the Marvel movie produced by Kevin Feige began. Executive producers are Victoria Alonso, Louis D’Esposito and Nikolas Korda, with David J. Grant and Simon Hatt serving as co-producers.

The first two films in the franchise, Guardians of the Galaxy (2014) and Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 (2017), grossed over $1.6 billion (about Rs. 12,400 crore) worldwide.

Melchior also landed roles in upcoming Fast X films, Assassin’s Club with Henry Golding and Marlowe with Liam Neeson, following his role as Ratcatcher in The Suicide Squad.

Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 hits theaters worldwide on May 5, 2023.
