Warning: The following article contains potential spoilers for the movie that some fans may wish to avoid.
Consider it a rumour no longer: Miley Cyrus does have a very important appearance in Guardians of the Galaxy Vol 2.
Thanks to advance screenings of the Marvel sequel, Miley's involvement was uncovered by a few sharp-eared fans and critics who noticed her voice in one of the whopping five post-credits sequences.
It's essentially an Easter Egg to long-time Marvel Comics readers, as the pre-Star-Lord version of the Guardians - or Charlie-27 (Ving Rhames), Aleta Ogord (Michelle Yeoh), Stakar Ogord (Sylvester Stallone), Krugarr and Mainframe - reunite for one last hurrah.
Miley was suspected by fans to be making her Marvel Cinematic Universe debut as the voice of Mainframe, an alien warrior whose entire society is based around Stark Enterprises and its weaponry.
Director James Gunn initially stopped short of confirming or denying the vocal cameo, but finally let the cat out of the bag (Or the Miley out of the Milano, as it were) when Digital Spy spoke with him at the Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 red carpet premiere.
"It's not a rumour," he clarified to us. "I've substantiated it. Yeah!"
Before you write off the cameo as a Howard the Duck-esque bit of fun for fans, keep in mind that Gunn has already promised that Stallone's classic Guardian member Stakar Ogord is key to the franchise's future.
Guardians of the Galaxy Vol 2 opens in the UK on April 28, 2017, and in the US on May 5, 2017. Watch Digital Spy speak with the cast at Monday's European premiere below:
