Things have changed a lot for the comic books in the recent years. While comic books were attributed to geeky misfits and kids for a long time, now the genre is on the rise. This is partly due to them being the source material of huge Hollywood hit movies. That being said, what once was ignored is so hot that many celebrities and actors want to partake in any comic book movie.
A few days ago, Aerosmith’s Steven Tyler appealed to director James Gunn for a role in the Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 movie while he is giving an interview. Gunn responded to Tyler’s request recently.
Gunn was in a Facebook Q&A session when he was asked about Tyler and his potential role in the movie. Here’s his statement on the subject:
“Yes, I did hear that Steven Tyler wants to be in ‘Guardians of the Galaxy.’ He gave me a shout-out the other day in an interview. He said, ‘James Gunn are you listening?’ The answer is: Steven, yes I am listening. And I’m a big fan of Steven Tyler‘s. I had the pleasure of directing his daughter Liv in a movie [“Super” in 2010] in which she was fantastic, and I met him for a few seconds at a screening of that movie. He’s a cool guy. And of course I would love to work with Steven Tyler sometime.”
