He may have sacrificed himself in Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2, but the home-entertainment release of Marvel’s Thor: Ragnarok features another brief appearance from Michael Rooker’s Yondu, who returns from beyond the grave to make a cameo in the following ‘deleted scene’:
In case you couldn’t tell from the video, Yondu hasn’t been drinking the Agent Coulson resurrection juice, but rather Michael Rooker just happened to be nearby shooting material for Guardians of the Galaxy – Mission: Breakout! and decided to stop by the Ragnarok set to have a little fun. Here’s Guardians director James Gunn and Rooker himself to explain:
For those of you asking me how a Yondu deleted scene is on the Thor Ragnarok extras – I believe Rooker was at the lot shooting his bit for the Guardians Mission Breakout ride/Halloweeen version, and he stopped by the Thor set to goof around. Rooker, correct me if I’m wrong.
