GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY VOL. 2 (2017): Darkhawk Rumored To Appear

Darkhawk Said To Have Cameo In Guardians Of The Galaxy Vol. 2

A surprise listing on Amazon.com sparks speculation that Marvel fan favorite Darkhawk will appear in some capacity in Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2.

The rumor started when io9 noticed an interesting item included on the storefront the Internet shopping site set up for the science fiction superhero sequel. Among the expected Starlord, Gamora, and other Guardians merchandise was a listing for an action figure of Darkhawk, a relatively obscure character who has yet to appear in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Although the item isn’t set to hit the shelves for some time, the fact that it will appear before any merchandise for a character who has actually appeared in the franchise like Nebula has many wondering if this means he will make his debut in Vol. 2.

Comicbookmovie.com, the source of this story, shared the following about the character:

For those of you unfamiliar with the hero, Chris Powell discovered an amulet allowing him to don the alien armour of Darkhawk. Belonging to an ancient sect of Shi’ar assassins known as the Fraternity of Raptors, it provides immense protective and fighting power to its wearer along with access to its Datasong which grants the ability to access memories and possible future outcomes of events.

Sounds like the perfect person to warn the Guardians about a certain Infinity War, don’t you think?

An aspiring writer, longtime film junkie, and former UCLARadio.com disc jockey (where I graduated with a BA in Political Science), I've made the jump from penning book reviews and current events editorials for HonorSociety.org to writing movie and TV news and reviews.

When I'm not working towards my certificate in Radio and Television/Video Production at Fullerton College, I enjoy reading (horror, science fiction, and historical/political nonfiction are particular favorites), participating in my school's TV and theatre clubs, attending movie screenings, plays, concerts, and other events, and trying to come up with pithy things to say on social media. Believe it or not, there are occasions where I find time to write for my own leisure.
