Here’s an interesting rumor, as a Redditor by the name of u/CassandraOracle has shared some insight into the Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 productions. They were filming near her some days ago and she shared some of her observations. It seems they were working on an action scene which involved Beverly Hills police cars. Yet, what stands out is that it seems word was going around that Kevin Bacon was involved with the scene.
The addition of Kevin Bacon would be a perfect way to round out the third entry of the trilogy, as Star-Lord has an ongoing obsession with the film Footloose. What is highlighted is that the police cars may be from the past, as a retro design was on set with a hint at it potentially being the early 2000s. Drax’s stunt double was sighted on set, but unsure if he actively had a role of some kind in the scene. So, either we have some time travel shenanigans or someone is toying with Peter Quill’s mind. There’s always a chance that this is also something involving the Disney+ Holiday Special that is being developed around the same time.
We had the famous David Hasselhoff cameo during the second entry of the franchise, when Ego briefly transformed into him to tease Peter’s role models. So, the addition of Kevin Bacon seems to likely lean towards that direction rather than him playing a character. Yet, it would be a fun twist that the actor is some kind of space warrior in his spare time adding to his theory that the actor is some kind of hero.
