Miley Cyrus makes a cameo in the upcoming Marvel film Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2, according to reporter Sarah Ruhlman. The news was confirmed to People, by Disney. According to Ruhlman’s tweet, director James Gunn and Marvel President Kevin Feige revealed that Cyrus is the voice of Mainframe.
Ruhlman said, “I was watching The Voice, and I [thought] she’s so likable, and her voice is awesome, she’s got the best voice. And then I asked Kevin [Feige], ‘What do you think about casting Miley Cyrus as the voice of Mainframe?’ He was like, ‘Well, if you think we can get her.’ … and I got her to do it.” You can check out the tweet below.
If you’re not familiar with Mainframe, it’s an alternate version of the Vision (played by Paul Bettany in the Marvel Cinematic Universe) that has evolved to become the operating system of a planet. Before Miley Cyrus, Mainframe was voiced by Jeffrey Combs in Hulk and the Agents of S.M.A.S.H.
Earlier, during the press conference for the film, Feige asked Gunn, “Have you told anyone who Mainframe is?” Gunn responded, “I haven’t told anyone, yeah. Should we?” Then he said, “Oh, I think I actually did. I blew it. I told one person.” “It’ll get out,” Feige replied.
The Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 cast includes the return of Chris Pratt as Star-Lord, Zoe Saldana as Gamora, Dave Bautista as Drax, Vin Diesel as the voice of Groot, Bradley Cooper as the voice of Rocket, Michael Rooker as Yondu, Karen Gillan as Nebula, and Sean Gunn as Kraglin. New cast members include Pom Klementieff, who plays Mantis, Elizabeth Debicki as Ayesha, Chris Sullivan as Taserface and KurtRussell as Ego, the Living Planet.
Set to the backdrop of Awesome Mixtape #2, the Guardians of the Galaxy sequel continues the team’s adventures as they traverse the outer reaches of the cosmos. The Guardians must fight to keep their newfound family together as they unravel the mysteries of Peter Quill’s true parentage. Old foes become new allies and fan-favorite characters from the classic comics will come to our heroes’ aid as the Marvel cinematic universe continues to expand.
Directed and written by James Gunn, Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 is produced by Marvel Studios’ president, Kevin Feige, with Louis D’Esposito, Victoria Alonso, Jonathan Schwartz, Nik Korda and Stan Lee serving as executive producers.
