EXCLUSIVE: The Suicide Squad breakout Daniela Melchior will have a small role in Guardians Of The Galaxy Vol. 3, we can confirm.

But as director James Gunn confirmed late last year, the actress won’t be appearing as character Moondragon, which had been speculated online.

More from Deadline

Filming recently wrapped on the anticipated threequel, which will star Chris Pratt, Zoe Saldana, Vin Diesel, Dave Bautista, Bradley Cooper, Sylvester Stallone, Karen Gillan, Elizabeth Debicki and Will Poulter.

Gunn recently teased the involvement of an “unannounced actor” in the film. That person isn’t Melchior. Neither is it Keanu Reeves, per more online speculation.

While the superhero pic’s plot has been kept under wraps, past installments have followed the half-human, half-alien Peter Quill, aka Star-Lord (Pratt), and his gang of intergalactic criminals as they fend off various threats to their universe. Vol. 3 is set to be the last in Gunn’s series of Guardians films.

Production on the Kevin Feige-produced Marvel movie kicked off in November of 2021. Victoria Alonso, Louis D’Esposito and Nikolas Korda are exec producing, and David J. Grant and Simon Hatt are serving as co-producers.

The first two films in the series—2014’s Guardians of the Galaxy and 2017’s Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2—collectively grossed more than $1.6BN worldwide. Vol. 3 is slated to open on May 5, 2023, against Paramount and eOne’s Dungeons & Dragons: Honor Among Thieves.

Melchior’s star continues to rise. After portraying Ratcatcher in The Suicide Squad, she has landed roles in upcoming projects Fast X, Assassin Club with Henry Golding and Marlowe with Liam Neeson.
