Crazy Rich Asians and Superstore actor Nico Santos is heading into the Marvel Cinematic Universe as he joins the cast of Guardians of the Galaxy: Vol. 3. As in usual Marvel-style, the cast, plot, and visuals have been kept on lockdown since they began filming this installment of Guardians in November of 2021. As the movie wrapped last month, we are slowly getting to see who is added to the cast. Nico shared his excitement in a post on Instagram as Deadline reported the news.
Nico joins cast members Chris Pratt, Zoe Saldana, Vin Diesel, Dave Bautista, Bradley Cooper, Sylvester Stallone, Karen Gillan, Elizabeth Debicki, Will Poulter, Chuk Iwuji, Maria Bakalova, and Daniela Melchior in Vol. 3. The movie is set to release on May 5th, 2023, and is set to be the last of filmmaker James Gunn’s series of the Guardians films.
