Not only does he have a kick-ass name, Rob Zombie (The Matrix, House of 1000 Corpses, and Daredevil) is going to make an appearance in Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2! This isn’t Zombie’s first time playing a cameo in one of James Gunn’s (Super, Dawn of the Dead, and Scooby-Doo) movies… or even his first time in a Guardians of the Galaxy flick so his return doesn’t come as much of a shock; more like a very welcome confirmation that the legendary musician and director is returning to the Marvel Cinematic Universe and knowing him, he is going to do it with style. Not only does this news bring us those Happy Happy Joy Joy feelings, we also get to see the new movie theater standee released by the studio.

Lots of folks missed out on Zombie’s came in the first film and there’s a pretty good reason for that. He only lent his voice to a character off-screen; some unnamed Ravager navigator on board Yondu’s spaceship. Guardians of the Galaxy wasn’t Zombie’s first time working with Gunn … his voice was previously lent to Gunn’s projects Slither and Super. The news that Zombie was going to once again come back to the MCU came on his official Instagram page with the following posting:

Zombie and Gunn look pretty chummy in the shot and it’s clear from the message his voice will be returning. Here’s hoping we might get to see his face on screen, but we probably shouldn’t hold out hope. Gunn has a long history of casting his friends in voice-only cameos. In the first Guardians of the Galaxy film, Seth Green (The Italian Job, Robot Chicken, and Austin Powers: International Man of Mystery) provided the voice for Howard the Duck in the post-credits scene and Nathan Fillion (Firefly, Castle, and Slither) lent his vocal talents to an unnamed alien inmate.

With all of this exciting cameo news, we almost forgot! Check out the standee that was just released for movie theaters promoting the film:

Here’s hoping that middle seat is something we can actually sit on and not just made of cardboard or they are going to need some serious duct tape to keep this in one piece after fans get a look at it.

Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 is set to release on May 5th, 2017 and will star Chris Pratt (Jurassic World, Her, and Parks and Recreation) , Zoe Saldana (Avatar, Star Trek, and Blackout) , Dave Bautista (Spectre, The Man With the Iron Fists, and Warrior’s Gate) , Vin Diesel (The Iron Giant, xXx, and Riddick) , Michael Rooker (Jumper, The Walking Dead, and Cliffhanger) , Karen Gillen (Doctor Who, Oculus, and The Big Short) , Bradley Cooper (Silver Linings Playbook, The Hangover, and American Sniper), and many more.
