It’s no surprise that pretty much every Avenger under the sun has confirmed their involvement in the upcoming superhero team-up Avengers: Infinity War. What is surprising, however, is how many characters outside of the main gang will be joining the fray. On the Guardians of the Galaxy front, apart from the Guardians themselves, we’ve also had confirmation that Karen Gillan will return as Nebula.

Now, thanks to a recent post from actor Sean Gunn (also, brother of Guardians director James Gunn), who plays Kraglin, one of Yondu’s crew (“Captain’s gotta teach stuff!”), we now know that the actor will be working on Avengers: Infinity War.

Take a look at the Instagram post below:

While James Gunn had already said in the past that we can expect a more sizable role for Kraglin in Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2, it’s doubtful that’s the role Sean Gunn is on set for. In addition to Kraglin, Gunn also was the performance capture actor for Rocket Raccoon, who is voiced by Bradley Cooper. Rocket, unlike Kraglin, has been confirmed for the movie, and as such, it’s reasonable to assume that’s the role he’s there for.

However, if there’s a snowball’s chance in hell that Kraglin could have a role in the flick, I have to wonder if that’s a choice I’d be on board with. While I can’t say I’m a huge fan of the character, Kraglin’s involvement in the plot could ultimately mean an even bigger scope of story than we originally thought. Of course, this is such a stretch that it hardly even counts as speculation, but it’s an interesting thought.

What do you think of Gunn’s post? Do you think Rocket will be the only character he’ll be bringing back to life in Avengers: Infinity War? Let us know in the comments down below!

Avengers: Infinity War hits theaters on May 4, 2018.
