Terry Crews Joins Guardians Of The Galaxy Cast, But Not As You’d Expect

Terry Crews is joining the MCU’s Guardians of the Galaxy – but it probably won’t be how you’re expecting him to join.

Rather than joining the cast of an MCU film, he will be appearing in the Guardians of the Galaxy: Cosmic Rewind ride at Walt Disney World.

Crews will be playing a character called Centurion Tal Marik, a close advisor to Nova Prime (Glenn Close). He isn’t playing an established character from the comic books, but someone entirely new to the MCU.

In a tweet, Disney Parks showed Crews “gearing up for his new role as Centurion Tal Marik, Commander of the Starcharter and close advisor to Nova Prime. Marik must call on the Guardians because it’s “SAVE THE GALAXY TIME…again!”

Terry Crews – Guardians of the Guardians Coaster

The ride is Disney World’s first Marvel themed ride. A licensing agreement with Universal Studios restricts Disney from using Marvel characters in their US parks. Only Disneyland and Disneyland Paris have Marvel attractions, which are part of an “Avengers Campus”.

However, it seems that rule doesn’t apply to the Guardians of the Galaxy ride. It opens on May 27th at Disney World. Park-goers can experience the new ride, which is apparently one of the longest coasters ever, and see a unique story involving the Guardians of the Galaxy and other characters.
