Del Toro Not Sure He’s In Guardians of the Galaxy 2


During a recent sit down with IGN, Benicio Del Toro discussed the possibility of reprising the role of the Collector in Guardians of the Galaxy 2. Check out the highlights:

Will he return: “I would like to keep working on that character, though. It was kind of like a cameo. I would like to keep developing the character based on what’s written in the comic books. I’d like to see some different sides. I had a blast working with James Gunn and the cast – but it’s not up to me.”

On researching the role: “[In doing the research] I said, ‘please help me out.’ Because there are big, thick volumes about the characters. So they did point me in the right direction. I learned a lot about the character. One of the most interesting things that I learned about him is the reasons that he’s collecting. He sees himself as putting together Noah’s Ark. He sees himself as having that responsibility. He’s collecting things, because eventually there’s going to be an apocalypse in the universe and he wants to get things to safety. That’s a really interesting aspect of the character.”
