“Well, I can’t really tell you guys because it’s a spoiler in itself to talk about it,” he said. “But, near the very end of the movie, there’s a new character introduced for just a moment who speaks for half a second with Sylvester Stallone.”
Gunn said he simply called Miley up to ask if she’d be willing to lend her vocal talent to the movie — and she said yes. In future installments, the “Wrecking Ball” singer could factor even more prominently into the plot.READ MORE: Amy Smart On 'DC's Stargirl': 'It's Pure Entertainment'
“I love her voice, I think it’s amazing. [It has] a great harshness to it that is awesome. It would be perfect for a robot,” he said. “I would love to see Miley come back and do more stuff with us and I’d love to see that character come back. It’s a real fun character, I have good things in store.”
