Rooker discusses changes made to the character for the film...
Guardians of the Galaxy actor Michael Rooker recently spoke with SuperHeroHype at Dragon Con. During the chat, he talked about playing the role of Yondu in the film.
Rooker reportedly indicated that changes have been made to the character of Yondu in the film. In the comics, Yondu was a founding member of the original Guardians of the Galaxy. Speaking on the role, Rooker stated: "When I first got the role of Yondu, [director James] Gunn was like, 'Don't read any of the comics!' but It's beautiful stuff. Whenever you do a film of comic book characters and stuff you don't know how much you can show, you don't know how much is going to be brought out. Nowadays movies are done and they already have two or three others planned out. So stuff you do in this one, you ask 'Why aren't we doing this?' and they say, 'Well be patient!'"
The movie will be released in theaters on August 1.
