There were a good number of characters in Avengers: Infinity War. And yet, despite the number of superheroes running around, there wasn’t room for absolutely everyone in the film. The big players that were missing for the film were Hawkeye, Ant-Man, Wasp, and Valkyrie, but there is another, slightly smaller, tier of characters that we heard nothing from.

One such character was Thor: Ragnarok‘s hilarious Korg, who was with Thor and the rest of Asgard just prior to Thanos dropping in on them. As we reported earlier this week, we have no idea what the fate of Korg is, but there was one other character missing that not a lot of fans remembered to miss: Kraglin. That’s right, the dimwitted Ravager-turned-good in Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 who ended up joining the Guardians…and yet, he was nowhere to be seen.

So is he dead or off on some other mission? James Gunn confirmed that the character was all good in a recent tweet, saying:

“Kraglin is still around – don’t worry! He has important stuff to do and all will be eventually revealed (thus has been my top question of the day btw so I’m glad to see you’re keeping him in your hearts!)”

The tail-end of Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 saw Kraglin taking up Yondu’s arrow and boarding Star-Lord’s ship. The implication there was that he was officially one of the Guardians crew. Interestingly enough, while I was a fan of the way his character turned out, I guess even I didn’t realize how much I didn’t miss the character until I realized people were asking about him. I guess that makes me a bad fan.

What do you think of Kraglin returning later down the line? Let us know your thoughts down below!
