Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy Holiday Special hits the Disney+ streaming service tomorrow and has been riding a wave of excellent one-off reviews so far.

“Special Presentation” is also Kevin Bacon’s MCU debut. Kevin Bacon plays a fictionalized version of himself thought by some of these galactic misfits to be the perfect Christmas his present for the depressed Star-Lord (Chris Pratt).

However, his casting was confusing, as this isn’t the first time Bacon has stepped into Marvel’s screen world. Bacon played lead villain Sebastian Shaw in his 2011 acclaimed “X-Men: First Class.”

Fox-Marvel’s films aren’t part of the MCU canon yet, but the MCU’s recent multiverse shenanigans and the inclusion of past X-Men cast members as characters is a big step from Patrick Stewart in the ‘Doctor Strange’ sequel. Until the return of Hugh Jackman. ‘Deadpool 3’ – leading to speculation that it will change.

talk to varietythe special’s director James Gunn has mentioned Kevin Bacon’s position in the MCU, saying that Bacon’s previous “X-Men” role was the subject of discussions with Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige. He said it wasn’t on topic.

“One of the things that impressed me about Kevin Feige running the MCU is that the most important thing is the project in front of him. Maybe, but it doesn’t work if it messes up what’s in front of you.

The best choice for the holiday special is Kevin Bacon, and if it means that Kevin Bacon will be a different character later in the MCU, that doesn’t matter. None of this is real. He was the perfect person to cast as Kevin Bacon. ”

Of course, the Marvel movies are full of similar double-castings, from Chris Evans as Captain America/Human Torch to Josh Brolin as Thanos/Cable. Some interesting questions arise.

Gunn also revealed that Bacon isn’t a big fan of Christmas in real life, much different from how he loves Christmas in the special episode:

“Kevin doesn’t like Christmas. That part was hilarious to me. It doesn’t look like Kevin Bacon’s house at all.It’s not Kevin, it’s very L.A.But Kevin is this super nice guy.He’s so talented, he’s so professional, he’s so egoless, really He’s kind, and that part of the character seems to be him.

Meanwhile, Disney+ has irritated some fans with a new episode of its web series “Legends,” which looks back at the history of Drax and Mantis.

Released yesterday, the clip contains a deleted scene from the second Guardians movie, and although it wasn’t part of the film’s canon, it’s a key spoiler for the holiday special. It became clear. The Direct.

It reportedly led to such a backlash that the episode was removed from the service.

The Guardians of the Galaxy Holiday Special will begin streaming on Disney+ on Friday.
