Marvel’s latest superhero epic Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2, which was released in Hong Kong on April 27, dropped a fantastic surprise in one of their post-credit scenes.
The superhero film is the sequel to the 2014 film of the same name, and sees Chris Pratt reprising his role as the human Peter Quill (aka Star-Lord), who along with his band of extraterrestrial misfits go on an galactic adventure to learn more about his own parentage.
In a post-credits scene, Chinese Malaysian actress Michelle Yeoh (楊紫瓊) made a cameo appearance as Aleta Ogord, the female counterpart of Stakar Ogord, portrayed by Sylvester Stallone.
According to the comics, both Stakar and Aleta were a part of the original Guardians of the Galaxy. After triggering a mechanism in a statue of the Hawk God, Aleta’s body got dematerialized and turned into energy, merging into Stakar. He became much more powerful as a result, becoming the Starhawk.
Michelle’s appearance in the post-credits scene of Guardians may be an introduction to her recurring appearances in future Marvel films.
Michelle is the second Chinese actress to appear in a Marvel superhero film, after Fan Bingbing (范冰冰), who starred as Blink in 2014’s X-Men: Days of Future Past.
Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 opens in the United States and China on May 5, 2017.
