Guardians Of The Galaxy 2: What We Know So Far
Rocket RaccoonWe pretty much learn everything we need to know about Rocketís attitude and general outlook on life within the first few moments of meeting him in Guardians of the Galaxy. Making fun of various aliens who are doing nothing more than going on with their day, the diminutive furry gun-lover is the exact opposite of a people person, and is as surly as they come. By the end of the film he does even out a bit by understanding the importance of having other people in his life, but he is still far from a happy camper. He will be along for the ride in Guardians of the Galaxy 2, with Bradley Cooper returning to provide the voice. And while we donít know anything plot specific about his arc yet, that information will certainly come in time.
YonduThereís a seemingly endless number of shockingly entertaining characters in Guardians of the Galaxy, but perhaps the most surprising of them all is the performance given by Michael Rooker as Yondu. Part Boba Fett and part Jabba The Hutt, this blue, mohawked Ravager stole every scene he was in with his Kentucky fried accent, and whistle-controlled arrow. Rookerís many years of working with director James Gunn practically insures that Yondu will be back for Guardians of the Galaxy 2, but itís also important to remember that itís Yondu and the rest of his crew who actually know the identity of Star-Lordís father. As that plot plays out, expect Yondu to be a big part of it.
Ronan The AccuserLetís keep this one short and sweet: Ronan The Accuser, brought to life by Lee Pace, is dead as Dillinger. While he was certainly formidable (he honestly made Drax look like a toddler at times), and was basically invulnerable with the power of the Infinity Stone, the Guardians of the Galaxy used teamwork to turn him into purple dust at the end of the movie. Itís true that some kind of weird comic book loophole could possibly bring him back into the Marvel Cinematic Universe somehow, but the reality is that you shouldnít expect him back for Guardians of the Galaxy 2 - and James Gunn has gone on record confirming that it definitely isnít going to happen.
