The Aerosmith frontman has a connection to James Gunn as his daughter, Liv Tyler, was featured in Gunn’s 2010 movie, Super.
Gunn stated the following (relating to Tyler & Guardians Of The Galaxy Vol. 3) on Facebook (during Facebook Live):
“Yes, I did hear that Steven Tyler wants to be in Guardians Of The Galaxy. He gave me a shout-out the other day in an interview. He said, ‘James Gun are you listening?’ The answer is: Steven, yes I am listening, and I’m a big fan of Steven Tyler’s. I would have the pleasure of directing his daughter Liv in a movie in which she was fantastic, and I met him for a few seconds at a screening of that movie. He’s a cool guy. And, of course I would love to work with Steven Tyler sometime.”
It’s unclear if James Gunn will be back for Guardians Of The Galaxy Vol. 3 , but Gunn does suggest in the video right here – he is figuring that out now.
