Guardians of the Galaxy writer and director James Gunn has acknowledged that the heroes' starship was, in fact, named for Alyssa Milano. The summer blockbuster is the only film to hit the screens in August and walk away with the highest gross. And, of course, there's merchandising.
Milano, star of the long running series Charmed, is now the mother of two beautiful children. And OMG she breastfeeds her children! Call out the feminist attack drones!
Now that her name is tied to the MCU (Marvel Cinematic Universe) how long before the veteran actress shows up in one of their films? That would certainly be a treat but it's hard to top having a starship named for you.
