One of the standout characters from Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy is Yondu, who was played by Michael Rooker. In a recent interview while promoting his new film, Love And Monsters, he was asked about returning to the role for a Disney+ spin-off series, where he said:
“I will sign onto anything. I’m out of work right now. So bring it on, baby, bring it on [laughs].”
“I’ll sign onto anything. I love the [character]. I really, really, truly enjoyed playing Yondu.”
And finally said:
“And of course, of course [I would return],”

In another interview with ComicBook.com this week, he doubled down on the chances, since it’s possible he could return, saying
“I don’t know how they could do it, but of course it’s possible. Anything’s possible in the Marvel universe, you know, there’s time traveling and all that kind of stuff. So yeah, of course it’s possible. But will they be able to afford me? I don’t know. At Marvel, they don’t have a lot of money you know, it’s really tough out there!”
This doesn’t necessarily mean Marvel are bringing back Yondu for a new Disney+ series, but with Michael Rooker being publicly open for a return, it does increase the chances.
You can see Yondu in both Guardians of the Galaxy movies, which are both available on Disney+.
