During a new interview with VarietyGunn was asked how the real bacon compared to the one in the film.
“Kevin doesn’t like Christmas,” replied Gunn. “That part was hilarious to me. I have Kevin on set showing what’s supposed to be his house, and it’s filled with all these giant air. It looks like Santa Claus vomited in the bacon house.” who looks nothing like Kevin.” Bacon’s house anyhow.”
The Marvel director continued: “It’s so L.A.-looking, which is just not Kevin. But Kevin is this super nice guy. He’s so talented, so professional, so unselfish and a really kind person. That’s part of the character.” Just like him.”
This isn’t Bacon’s first appearance in a Marvel film; The actor played the role of the “X-Men: First Class” villain Sebastian Shaw. However, it’s unclear whether the film ties into the main Marvel Cinematic Universe after “X-Men” star Patrick Stewart appeared in “Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness.”
Gunn said they haven’t had any discussions about whether there are two Kevin Bacons hanging out in the Marvel universe.
Gunn said, “One of the things that has really impressed me about Kevin Feige running the MCU is that what matters most is the project right in front of him.” “You can have a plan about how you want to do something down the road, but if it’s right in front of you, it just doesn’t work.”
He added: “The best thing to happen to the holiday special is Kevin Bacon, and if it means that Kevin Bacon is a different character later in the MCU, it doesn’t really matter. It’s not real. None of this is real.” No. He was the right person to cast as Kevin Bacon. If we had cast John Schneider as Kevin Bacon, it would not have worked.
‘The Guardians of the Galaxy Holiday Special’ premieres Friday on Disney Plus.
