Michael Rooker - Guardians of the Galaxy

We just got our hands on this exclusive clip of Michael Rooker at the Atlanta Wizard World Comic Con.  His character hasn't appeared in any of the Guardians of the Galaxy trailers yet, but he assures us that he is in the film!

 
Note that he mistakenly refers to Thor: The Dark World as one of the summer releases... I'm sure he meant to mention Captain America: The Winter Soldier.  He's a SUPER buys guy, and was probably in the middle of finishing up Guardians of the Galaxy, so we'll cut him some slack!

Wizard World is Comic Cons and pop culture conventions across North America that celebrate graphic novels, comic books, movies, TV Shows, cosplay, actors, and more!  To see Wizard World's next big Comic Con event info, click here!
 
Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy expands the Marvel Cinematic Universe into the cosmos, where brash adventurer Peter Quill finds himself the object of an unrelenting bounty hunt after stealing a mysterious orb coveted by Ronan, a powerful villain with ambitions that threaten the entire universe. To evade the ever-persistent Ronan, Quill is forced into an uneasy truce with a quartet of disparate misfits–Rocket, a gun-toting raccoon, Groot, a tree-like humanoid, the deadly and enigmatic Gamora and the revenge-driven Drax the Destroyer. But when Peter discovers the true power of the orb and the menace it poses to the cosmos, he must do his best to rally his ragtag rivals for a last, desperate stand - with the galaxy’s fate in the balance. Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy is presented by Marvel Studios and stars Chris Pratt, Zoe Saldana, Dave Bautista, Bradley Cooper as the voice of Rocket, Vin Diesel as the voice of Groot, Lee Pace, Michael Rooker, Karen Gilian, Djimon Hounsou with John C. Reilly, Glenn Close as Commander Rael and Benicio del Toro as The Collector. Distributed by Walt Disney Studios Motion Pictures, the film opens August 1, 2014.

Rooker is awesome. He's gonna be great in GotG.

I met him (and Stan Lee, Dan Slott, J. Scott Campbell, Robert Englund, and many more awesome celebs) at the Dallas Comic-Con a couple weeks ago. He seemed like a pretty great guy.

blackandyellow - 6/3/2014, 10:20 AM
Gus, somebody needs to honor Tea by reviewing all the CBM porn parodies. That man was brilliant.
Gusto - 6/3/2014, 10:24 AM

You guys are incorrigible.
Gusto - 6/3/2014, 11:07 AM
You are forgiven!!!!!!
Venom18 - 6/3/2014, 11:23 AM
I met Rooker last year at the Monster Con in NJ. He is really a down to earth cool mutherf**ker. But he was a lot shorter in real life as compared to the tv. He will own as Yondu. Hopefully they can bring the original Guardians to the big screen in future GOTG movies.
Gusto - 6/3/2014, 11:52 AM
HAHAHAHA!!!
Funny 'cause it's true!!
MercwithMouth - 6/3/2014, 12:08 PM
Yeah, the night shift is a bunch of bitches...

Just like real life...
MisterNiceGuy - 6/3/2014, 12:39 PM
My girlfriend was there and got some awesome signatures. She got me a First issue of TASM signed by Stan lee and a photo of Yondu (comic version) signed by Michael Rooker. Did I mention I have the greatest GF ever?
soaponapope - 6/3/2014, 3:19 PM
the walking dead scene from season 1 where merle is alone and handcuffed up on the rooftop and does this 5 minute monologue is in my opinion the best scene in the entire series so far. those kind of extended dramatic monologues with nobody to play off of are hard to pull off, and he did it
bropous - 6/3/2014, 3:52 PM
MisterNiceGuy, she sounds like a gem.

Unlike Gusto's last girlfriend...



Good article, Nate!
bropous - 6/3/2014, 3:54 PM
And, of course, yoss's girlfriend who nearly stabbed him last night when he asked her to pass the pepper...
