Warning: This article will contain spoilers for Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2.

Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 broke a lot of hearts when it killed off Yondu (Michael Rooker) right after viewers discovered the true intentions of Star Lord’s (Chris Pratt) father Ego (Kurt Russell).  Peter Quill’s parentage was one of the main threads of the film, and to have the Guardian lose Yondu after learning what family actually meant was a gut to the heart.

However, while many appreciate the power and poignancy of the hard-ass Ravager’s death, new reports suggest that Yondu may return in Avengers: Infinity War.

According to a report by The Hashtag Show, a casting call for the epic Marvel superhero mash-up movie has just revealed that fans may see the return of Yondu in Infinity War. Apparently the studio is looking for an actor to play as a regular stand-in for Rooker in the upcoming film.

Check out the screenshot of the casting call down here:

This news come as a surprise to many. Though Marvel does have the terrible habit of ruining moving moments by bringing characters back to life, Guardians of the Galaxy director James Gunn had already confirmed that the studio would leave Yondu dead.  Could this be a ruse? Or could the studio be having Yondu return in a few flashback sequences?



We certainly hope that it’s the latter.  Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 is currently screening in cinemas.
