Marvel has posted a couple of images giving us our best look at Michael Rooker as Yondu from Guardians of the Galaxy. Pretty much kept under wraps (aside from some production images, Rooker’s Yondu hasn’t been seen very much. Now as we get closer to the release of the film, we finally have a good look.
This version of Yondu will be different in appearance and background compared to the one in the comics. Visually we see he doesn’t have the red fin mohawk, just a short nub of one. Also, Yondu is a mentor figure to Peter Quill/Star-Lord (Chris Pratt) in the movie.
Guardians of the Galaxy is directed by James Gunn and stars Chris Pratt, Zoe Saldana, Dave Bautista, Lee Pace, Michael Rooker, John C. Reilly, Karen Gillan, Glenn Close, Djimon Hounsou, Benecio Del Toro, Vin Diesel, Bradley Cooper and Gregg Henry, it is set to be released in theaters on August 1, 2014.
