Michael Rooker's Yondu Teased in GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY Photo

James Gunn has released a new photo from Guardians of the Galaxy, and this one teases Michael Rooker's character Yondu. This character has been absent from all of the marketing material we've seen so far, but according to the director, we will see more of him soon. This is what he had to say on his Facebook page:

"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."

I'm excited that they let the character in as well! There's no doubt he's going to be badass. Some photos from the set leaked out earlier, but nothing official has been released for him yet. Guardians of the Galaxy will be released in theaters on August 1st!
