Is Daniela Melchior Playing Moondragon in Guardians 3? | Barside Buzz

Is Daniela Melchior playing Moondragon in Guardians 3? There have long been rumors that the daughter of Drax would show up alive as Moondragon in a future Guardians movie and with this likely being the last for these Guardians, it’s not a crazy idea. So why Daniela Melchior? Well, for one Melchior was the standout from James Gunn’s latest film The Suicide Squad. Secondly, Gunn has already told fans that some actors from The Suicide Squad would be in Guardians Vol. 3.

UPDATE: James Gunn has come out to say Melchior is in fact not playing Moondragon in Guardians 3. Check it out.

Ouch for the outlet who decided to run she was in at as an exclusive, Don’t ever try to BS James Gunn folks. That was a bad gamble. Though Gunn did say, if he had seen how good Melchior could look, you never know?

Original Story Below

Finally though, we have a peculiar shot that Melchior posted to Instagram of her appearing to get some prosthetic work done. Check it out below courtesy of a post on Twitter.

The poster @Quidvacuo_ certainly seems to see a resemblance. However, let’s be clear that there are no rumors from known insiders commenting on this, yet. This post did the rounds and fans began to speculate about whether it could be true? For a start fans have already worked out where the image was taken and deduced that Portuguese star Melchior took the shots in Spain. If she’s in Guardians 3, why is she not in the U.S. ? However as has been pointed out, Guardians 3 has not begun filming yet. Some of the stars are filming already for a new Epcot attraction. However it seems like we are a couple of weeks away from the actual start of both Guardians 3 and the Guardians Holiday Special.

Given that Melchior still would not be a lead in Guardians 3, why would she be needed straight away anyway? Could this be some make-up test before heading over to the shoot? Yes, but the answer could also just as easily be no.

Again, there’s no leaks here, just an image Melchior posted. It’s also absolutely possible that this is all being done for a completely different project. But, that’s the Barside Buzz today folks, so let’s keep an ear out if any Trades make a comment, or even James Gunn himself? Though, since Moondragon’s appearance may be a spoiler, I can’t see Gunn clarifying this one as casually as he did Will Poulter as Adam Warlock.

What do you think, is Daniela Melchior playing Moondragon in Guardians 3? Or is this just one big fuss about nothing? Thoughts below.
