<font color=red>EXCLUSIVE UPDATE:</font> Otherworldly Character Names Revealed For GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY VOL 2

If you care to know who Elizabeth Debicki, Tommy Flanagan, and Chris Sullivan are playing Volume 2, and whether or not they have roots in Marvel Comics, check out their names after the jump!

Thanks to the announcement Marvel Studios made at the start of principal photography, we know who will make up the principal cast of Guardians of the Galaxy Vol 2 at this point. However, the roles played by newcomers Kurt Russell, Elizabeth Debicki, Tommy Flanagan, and Chris Sullivan have been a mystery… until now. Well, the identity of Russell’s character is still being kept under wraps (though he’s obviously playing Star-Lord’s father), but we do know who the other three actors are playing - or at least, what their characters’ names are.
 
According to an anonymous source tracking the production, Elizabeth Debicki is playing Ayesha in Guardians of the Galaxy Vol 2, while Tommy Flanagan is Tullk, and Chris Sullivan is playing Tsarface! Now, the last character listed may be an original one, but true Marvel cosmic fans (or those capable of a quick Google search) may recognize the first two names.
 
An alien called Tullk Ul-Zyn had appeared in “Annihilation: Ronan Vol 1 1-2” working for the villainous Ronan the Accuser (who is believed to be dead in the MCU). And though it was previously reported that Tommy Flanagan will be one of Yondu’s (Michael Rooker) motley Ravagers, his character may be based on the one with the same first name in the comics.
 
As for Ayesha, there was a prominent character in Marvel Comics that went by that name, among other identities. Originally known as Paragon, the character shares her origin with Adam Warlock as they were created by the same group of scientists on earth to become genetic superhuman beings who’d later escape their creators and end up in outer-space. Doctor Strange played a role in Ayesha’s birth, and she even took up the Captain Marvel mantle at one point. Her full backstory is one too massive for a faithful cinematic portrayal, but could be who Elizabeth Debicki is bringing in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Of course, James Gunn choosing these names may be a big coincidence, but what do you think?

UPDATE: It turns out Chris Sullivan's Tsarface is a typo on our part, and his character is actually named Taserface, who appeared in the original “Guardians of the Galaxy” comics.
