James Gunn Reveals the Only Reason He’d Bring Yondu Back for Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3

People are calling James Gunn out to bring back Peter Quill’s DADDY back for Guardians of the galaxy Vol.3. The Writer has some explaining for the fans. Continue Reading…

Despite all calls to “bring back Yondu,” the blue-skinned Ravager played by Michael RookerGuardians of the Galaxy writer-director James Gunn sticks to his decision on Peter Quill’s adopted father’s death: Yondu could only return in a flashback or prequel set before the events that led to his death in Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2. There the roughneck Centaurian met his noble end when he sacrificed himself to save his boy when Quill’s biological father, Ego (Kurt Russell), was exploded by a bomb set off by Groot (voice of Vin Diesel). Gunn again stands by his words; Yondu will not be resurrected for any reason, arguing it would undo his heroic final act:

“Unless we’re talking about some sort of prequel or flashback, I believe this would nullify Yondu’s sacrifice,” Gunn wrote on Twitter when responding to a fan urging the filmmaker to “please find some way to bring back Yondu.” When replying to a similar tweet in January 2018, Gunn wrote, “[Yondu] will never be brought back to life as long as I’m around. His passing needs to mean something.”

Rooker hinted Yondu’s “essence” will live on in his Yaka Arrow, inherited by Kraglin (Sean Gunn).

“You know you have this strange idea of dying,” Rooker said during a 2017 convention appearance. “I don’t understand why people think dying is like, gone. No! I’m just saying! I’m not giving any hints right now! I’m just saying that Yondu has moved on.”

James Gunn next will return to the franchise with Vol. 3. Marvel Studios has not yet announced a release date.
