‘Guardians of the Galaxy’ Star Sean Gunn Teases Kraglin’s Return in ‘Avengers 4’

Avengers: Infinity War really left audiences with more questions than answers. In addition to that puzzling ending, fans were left wondering where some of their favorite heroes were during all the action. Ant-Man and the Wasp were noticeably missing as well as fan favorite Ravager from Guardians of the Galaxy Kraglin among others. While we’re not totally sure (yet) what these missing superheroes were up to during Infinity War, we look eagerly towards their return to the big screen.

For Ant-Man and the Wasp, we’ll hopefully get to see what they’ve been up to when their second solo film hits theaters this weekend! As for Kraglin, however, actor Sean Gunn who portrays the character is doing a little bit of teasing regarding his return and whereabouts.

Gunn was recently interviewed by Good Day Sacramento and was asked if we can expect to see his lovable character return during the highly-anticipated, and still untitled, Avengers 4. While Gunn confirmed that he did, in fact, work on the film doing motion capture work as Rocket, he wouldn’t budge on whether or not Kraglin would return. Instead, he gave the interviewer a playful answer. Gunn said:

[row]“I cannot confirm nor deny whether I’ll be in the next Avengers movie. I did work on it as Rocket, but as for my other character, I think we’ll just have to keep watching. I don’t think we’ve seen the last of him, but there’s more coming some way.”[/row]

We last saw Kraglin in a Guardians of the Galaxy, Vol 2 mid-credits scene, post-mourning his lost leader and friend Yondu. Kraglin had inherited Yondu’s yaka arrow and was attempting to learn the proper whistling controls in order to wield the arrow. It didn’t quite go as planned and he ended up getting a bullseye, right into his teammate Drax. If Kraglin is to appear in Avengers 4 or even in Guardians of the Galaxy, Vol 3, will he have mastered control of his arrow?

Fans will have to wait and see if he shows up in Avengers 4, however, we can all rest assured that Kraglin will definitely return and that he just might have an important part to play in the ultimate outcome of Infinity War. Back in May, director James Gunn confirmed the character’s return while answering a series of fan questions via his Twitter account. When asked where Kraglin was during Infinity War, Gunn answered quite definitely by saying, “Kraglin is off doing something important during Infinity War. He will return.”

Sounds pretty clear-cut based on James Gunn’s tweet, but as Sean Gunn says, we’ll just have to keep watching. What do you think Kraglin was up to during the events of Infinity War? Are you excited to see the character’s return (whenever that might be)? Let us know your thoughts in the comment section and check out the full interview from Good Day Sacramento below.
