LOS ANGELES, Sept. 14 (UPI) -- Director James Gunn has responded on social media to Aerosmith frontman Steven Tyler's request to appear in Guardians of the Galaxy 3.

"Yes, I did hear that Steven Tyler wants to be in Guardians of the Galaxy. He gave me a shout-out the other day in an interview. He said, 'James Gunn are you listening?' The answer is: Steven, yes I am listening," Gunn said recently during a Facebook Q&A session.

"And I'm a big fan of Steven Tyler's. I had the pleasure of directing his daughter Liv in a movie [Super] in which she was fantastic, and I met him for a few seconds at a screening of that movie. He's a cool guy. And of course I would love to work with Steven Tyler sometime," he continued.

The response comes after Tyler, during an interview with People magazine about his upcoming film Happy Birthday, stated that he wanted to continue acting and would love to appear in an entry of Marvel's space epic.

"I would do anything to be in Guardians of the Galaxy 3 – are you listening James Gunn?" the singer said.

Tyler's request however will have to wait as Gunn just wrapped up production on Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 which is set to hit theaters on May 5, 2017.
