Meanwhile, director James Gunn has also released this tease of Michael Rooker as Yondu. “Yondu was not in the original script. I added him and wrote the role specifically for Rooker. I wasn’t sure Marvel was going to go for either idea, so I was relieved when they responded enthusiastically to both,” he said.
