    From Kevin Bacon Guardians of the Universe Cameo explained

    The Guardians of the Universe Christmas special reunites Gunn with Bacon, who appeared in Gunn’s 2010 superhero comedy Super.

    In 2014 Guardians of the Universe, Earth-born Quill, aka Star-Lord, tells the Zehoberei assassin Gamora (Zoe Saldana) about the 1984 film Footless. “In it, a big hero named Kevin Bacon teaches a whole town full of people how to dance with sticks up their asses,” explains Quill. “It’s the most beautiful thing there is.”

    Footless and Kevin Bacon is mentioned again in 2018 Avengers: Infinite Warwhen Thor (Chris Hemsworth) tells the Guardians that he is one of the Avengers – a team of Earth’s Mightiest Heroes.

    “Like Kevin Bacon?” asks the alien Mantis.
    “Maybe he’s on the team,” says Thor. ‘I don’t know. I haven’t been there in a while.’

    In later Infinite Warwhen Iron Man (Robert Downey Jr.) and Spider-Man (Tom Holland) land on the planet Titan with the Guardians, Drax references Ronan’s (Lee Pace) “dance-off to save the universe.”

    “As in Footlessthe movie?” a surprised Spider-Man asks.
    “Exactly like Footless,” says Star Lord. “Is it still the greatest movie in history?”
    Spider-Man tells Earth-born Quill, “It never was.”

    In the Holiday specialDrax and Mantis visit Earth to find the “legendary” Kevin Bacon and give him to Star-Lord as a Christmas present.
