Guardians of the Galaxy 3 brings yet another impressive cast of characters to the big screen even beyond nearly a dozen expected names from past movies.
Additionally, Hawkeye star Linda Cardellini will reunite with writer/director James Gunn, taking on her second role in the MCU as Lylla the Otter - and this is just the start of big names joining this threequel.
Guardians 3 Features Fan-Favorite Loki Star
When asked why she wanted to be at the Guardians of the Galaxy 3 premiere, Strong revealed that she's in the movie, but teased that she'd have to prune fans if she revealed the specific role she plays:
Marvel: "Why did you want to be here at the 'Guardians' premiere tonight?"
Strong: "Well, I might be in it... It's not Miss Minutes. I can't say who it is, or... I could, but then I'd have to prune you... I'm going to turn back time with Miss Minutes."
Strong, who voices Miss Minutes in Loki, looked back to her longstanding relationship with director/writer James Gunn, with whom she worked on a video game many years ago along with fellow co-star Michael Rosenbaum
"I've known James for a very long time. We did a video game together many, many years ago called Lollipop Chainsaw. Actually, Michael Rosenbaum was in it, too... I have a lot of great memories of [Gunn], so it was wonderful to see James in the studio again when I came into do my thing, and then just to see him again."
Strong now becomes the third star in Guardians of the Galaxy 3 to play multiple roles in the MCU, joining Sean Gunn (Kraglin/Young Rocket) and Linda Cardellini (Laura Barton/Lylla the Otter) with that distinction.
