Actor Michael Rooker recently posted an Instagram snapshot of himself getting some coffee at a local Starbucks in Peachtree City, Georgia and he was sporting a brand new Infinity War beanie. As we know, the movie is currently shooting in Atlanta. Now, we know that Rooker is also in Georgia. And that he has an official Infinity War beanie. We also have proof that he was back in the blue make-up just hours ago on this fine Saturday.
Now, while he makes no mention of the hat in his post, it’s probably a safe bet that this is our first official confirmation that Rooker will reprise his role as Yondu in Avengers: Infinity War and its untitled 2019 sequel.
Rooker’s inclusion means all eight Guardians from Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 will return for the epic battle against Thanos, which will see the intergalactic heroes team-up with Earth’s Mightiest Heroes. This also likely means all eight members of the team will survive their upcoming encounter with Ego, the Living Planet, which should be good news for fans everywhere.
