Marvel had released three new international character sheets. They’re going for the “most posters for a single movie” world record.
Posters thanks to Marvel:
I’m not the only one picking up on the fact that Rocket and Groot are going to be the real breakout stars of this movie, right? Right.
Also, Director James Gunn has released a teaser image of his friend Michael Rooker as Yondu on Facebook along with a nice little note:
Michael Rooker onset as Yondu. You’ll be seeing more of him soon. 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.
Rooker has appeared in basically everything that Gunn has directed so I’m glad the studio went for it too. Also, Yondu is a fairly important character in the mythos so I’m glad thta worked out too.
At this point 1st August can’t come out soon enough.
