Michael Rooker On What We Can Expect From GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY

The Walking Dead actor Michael Rooker talks more about his role as Yondu in Guardians of the Galaxy, talking about what fans can expect from the movie and praising director James Gunn.

Guardians of the Galaxy won't hit theaters until August, but all the actors have been continuously talking about this movie. We haven't seen a trailer yet, so we didn't get to see the guardians in action, but we have seen some pretty great photos so far. That includes the set photos from back when they were filming. That also gave us our first look at a character many fans have been dying to see in this movie. The character played by The Walking Dead actor Michael Rooker, Yondu. In an interview with Unrendered Podcast (via ComicBook), Michael Rooker talked about his character's costume in the movie, what us fans can expect to see from the movie, and once again praises the director James Gunn. On the costume he will be wearing as his character Yondu and how it differs from the costume he wears in the comics, he says, “As you can see from some of the photos out there, I’m not in a loincloth. I don’t have a major, major fin thing that goes down my back. We haven’t visually gone with the way that Yondu was in the comics.” As many fans may know, Yondu was one of the original members of the Guardians of the Galaxy. Rooker said that we can all expect “Lovely, beautiful colors” from the movie. He says, “What do you expect? It is a superhero movie. And I hope that you see it, and you’re going to be going ‘I’m going to see this again.’ That’s what I hope.”

As some may know, Michael Rooker has worked with Guardians of the Galaxy director James Gunn in the past. Gunn previously directed the actor in "Slither" and "Super." He clearly really loves Gunn, and he has praised him in the past as well. On re-teaming with the director, he said “It was a beautiful shoot. James Gunn was an awesome, awesome director to work with again. I’ve worked with him before in the past, and it was great to get to do it again.” Rooker was then asked what attracts him to James Gunn as an artist. He had this to say: “It’s what attracts him to me, not what attracts me to him. You’ve got the wrong question there. [Laughing] We get along well. We’ve been good friends since our first film.” While continuing to praise Gunn, Rooker added, “He allows me to do my thing, and he has great comments. Very good director…when you’re lost in the woods, he can direct you.” Are you looking forward to Rooker's performance as Yondu, and when do you expect a first trailer? Sound off below, and remember that Guardians of the Galaxy hits theaters August 1st!
