Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 is set to hit theaters in just a few days. A new press release for the film reveals that the Guardians’ final ride will feature a cameo by James Gunn’s wife Jennifer Holland.
Jennifer Holland is best known for her role as ARGUS agent Emilia Harcourt in The Suicide Squad and its spin-off project Peacemaker. In the past year, Holland has also reprised her role in a numer of other DC Universe movies such as Black Adam and Shazam! Fury of the Gods, though it’s been confirmed that Gunn had little influence about her appearing in either project.
According to a new press release, Jennifer Holland will be making her Marvel Cinematic Universe debut in Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 as the character Administrator Kwol. Kwol does not originate from the comics and, according to those who have seen the film, is a small role that only appears in the opening set piece. This makes her cameo similar to the role of Nathan Fillion in the prior Guardians of the Galaxy films, where the actor appeared in small roles that fans may not even recognize.
Certain fans are upset that Jennifer Holland is appearing in so many projects because she’s James Gunn’s wife. However, directors including their friends and family in films is a practice as old as film itself. Writer-producer Adam Sandler, for example, is famous for including his friends like David Spade and Steve Buscemi in his projects. Even other MCU directors like the Russo Brothers love including actors from their time on projects like Community in roles. Filmmaking is a labor of love and the people directors chose to include are people they’ll be forced to spend months on set with. It only makes sense that directors would chose the people they love to be with the most.
What to expect from the third Guadians movie
Written and directed by James Gunn, Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 stars Chris Pratt, Zoe Saldaña, Dave Bautista, Vin Diesel, Bradley Cooper, Karen Gillan, Pom Klementieff, Elizabeth Debicki, Sean Gunn, Sylvester Stallone, Will Poulter, Chukwudi Iwuji and Maria Bakalova.
The Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 synopsis reads as follows: “Our beloved band of misfits are settling into life on Knowhere, but it isn’t long before their lives are upended by the echoes of Rocket’s turbulent past. Peter Quill, still reeling from the loss of Gamora, must rally his team around him on a dangerous mission to save Rocket’s life – a mission that, if not completed successfully, could quite possibly lead to the end of the Guardians as we know them.”
