In the special, Mantis (Pom Klementieff) and Drax (Dave Bautista) decide to take a trip to Earth and kidnap Kevin Bacon as a present for Peter Quill (Chris Pratt). He’s a fixture in the MCU due to Peter’s love of Footloose.

As it was revealed, Kevin Bacon had no idea he was going to be referenced in the first Guardians of the Galaxy movie and recently talked to Marvel.com about the experience.

“I went to Guardians opening weekend in the afternoon alone and had no idea what was coming,” he said.

“If you can imagine sitting there and hearing Peter start to talk about you when you’re already deeply entrenched in this movie – and not only that, it’s one thing if it was a regular romantic comedy and somebody had made a passing reference, but when it’s an actual other universe, it’s a pretty out of body experience.”

Find out what he said about joining the MCU amid critical comments from some directors lately about the films.
