Terry Crews Joins Marvel Cinematic Universe as Centurion Tal Marik
America’s Got Talent host Terry Crews is joining the Marvel Cinematic Universe, sort of. Instead of a traditional role in one of their films, Crews’s debut in the universe is quite unique. He’ll appear as Guardians of The Galaxy character Centurion Tal Marik in a brand new Epcot “storycoaster.”
Terry Crews Joins The Marvel Cinematic Universe For Guardians of The Galaxy Epcot Ride
On April 26, Disney Parks shared a photo of Crews in his newest costume. Within their photo he’s standing in front of a green screen in a full-body blue suit that featuring protective armor. In the Epcot ride, Crews plays the role of a Commander of Sarcharter that advises Nova Prime. His character often finds himself calling on the Guardians for assistance because it’s “save the galaxy time… again.”
While anything can occur in the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU), it doesn’t seem like Crews will appear in the third Guardians of The Galaxy film. Centurion Tal Marik’s advisee, Nova Prime, was apart of the first Guardians of The Galaxy film in 2014, but did not appear in the second film. Before Crews, his character never made an MCU appearance. Fans of the series believe that Crews’s role was specifically brought to life for the theme park attraction. Subsequently, they hope to see the actor in the future of the MCU.
In early April, Disney Parks shared the trailer for the upcoming ride, Guardians of The Galaxy: Cosmic Rewind. The narrative of the ride tasks the theme park audience to save the galaxy. The story involves the Guardians of The Galaxy members, the Celestial Eson, and the Nova Corps. Fans of the series will join Rocket, Groot, Gamora, and Star-Lord in the urgent, intense mission.
According to Disney’s website, the attraction features the first ever reverse-launch on one of their coasters. It is also one of the largest fully-enclosed roller coasters in the world. Guardians of The Galaxy: Cosmic Rewind is Walt Disney World’s first Marvel-themed ride. This brand new ride opens in Epcot on May 27. Anyone 3 1/2 feet or taller can ride this attraction.
