Guardians of the Galaxy is arguably the goofiest film in the entire Marvel Cinematic Universe but that's not to say that it can't get serious and downright dramatic if it wanted to. Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 saw the heroic and tearjerking death of Yondu who served as Star-Lord's second father.

Now, the Guardians along with other characters from James Gunn's MCU films are crossing over to Asgard for Thor: Love and Thunder. Production for the film kickstarted last month and this week, we were treated to several behind-the-scenes goodies featuring Chris Hemsworth, Chris Pratt, and Karen Gillan.

Going back to Yondu, it looks like Thor 4 is set to introduce his official "replacement". Actor Sean Gunn, who played Yondu's right-hand Kraglin in the GOTG franchise is getting a brand new look for the upcoming MCU film as seen in the latest set photos.

Interestingly, it seems like Kraglin has ditched his signature mohawk and replaced it with a cybernetic headpiece similar to Yondu's. Could Kraglin get an updated role in Thor: Love and Thunder or is it just a nod to the Ravagers fallen leader? Check out the set images here.

It's thrilling that we're getting the best of both worlds in the fourth Thor film but the question on everyone's mind is: how will the "legendary outlaw" Star-Lord and the God of Thunder be able to co-exist and set aside their differences? Avengers: Endgame seemed to have teased that the two will "battle" for the right to be the leader of the "Asgardians of the Galaxy" and it'll be truly interesting to see who comes out on top.

Thor: Love and Thunder will hit cinemas in 2022.
