Given how close we finally are to seeing Guardians of the Galaxy vol 2 finally hit screens, there is still a lot we don’t know about it. A pleasant change to the increasingly common trope of giving away an entire movie in the space of a minute long trailer, the build up to the new film is getting pretty tense as the studio slowly drips fans around the world snippets of information about what to expect. With just over a week to go, they’ve given us enough to get really excited about the movie – if you weren’t already – with plenty left shrouded in mystery that there are bound to be a ton of surprises in the cinema.
It has recently been revealed that there will be no fewer than five post-credits scenes and that it will feature not only the Guardians team from the first movie but also the original lineup from the comic books, protrayed by a wealth of stars including Michelle Yeoh and Sylvester Stallone.
The new movie will also see the cinematic adapation of Mainframe, a version of the Vision who operates an entire planet. In the comics, Mainframe was a part of the Galactic Guardians, a subgroup within the Guardians of the Galaxy. In Guardians of the Galaxy vol 2, it has been reported that Mainframe will appear as part of a past team with Yondu Udonta.
In a recent press conference, both Kevin Feige and James Gunn refused to reveal any information about how Mainframe might be portrayed, avoiding questions about the rumours that Michael Rosenbaum might have the part.
But journalist Sarah Ruhlman got a chance to talk with them and later took to Twitter to break the news that Mainframe would in fact be voiced by Disney’s own Miley Cyrus.

It might seem an unusual choice for the part, but Guardians of the Galaxy has done nothing but break rules and twist expectations since the beginning and, when you take a moment to think about it, the move is not out of character. If this decision is anything like the other unexpected moves the studio has made, it’s safe to assume that something fun and exciting is going to come of it.
