Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2; Zombie’s voice is Taserface’s (Chris Sullivan) taking over the ship. There is no confirmation as to whether this is the same character.

I need to check if zombies respawn Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3as Gunn has been known to back up supporting roles in his sequels. Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 It features both Howard the Duck (Seth Green) and canine actor Frank returning as space dog Cosmo.
