In the aftermath of Avengers: Infinity War, Marvel fans everywhere are searching for their favorites. Fans of the Guardians in the Galaxy in particular are wondering about the whereabouts of Kraglin, the wormy Ravager who helped the good guys in a big way in last year’s Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2. Good news: director James Gunn has confirmed that Kraglin is A-OK.
Minor spoilers for Avengers: Infinity War ahead.
On Monday, Gunn responded to a tweet asking for Kraglin, especially after Thanos wiped out half the universe in Avengers: Infinity War. Gunn, who is active on Twitter, responded: “Kraglin is still around - don’t worry!”
He continued: “He has important stuff to do and all will be eventually revealed (thus [sic] has been my top question of the day btw so I’m glad to see you’re keeping him in your hearts!)”
Well, this is good to know! Though he was a member of the Ravagers, a vicious space gang known for criminal activity, Kraglin — played by James Gunn’s brother, Sean Gunn, who also performed motion capture for Rocket — was a very good dude. Unlike most of the Ravagers, Kraglin still believed in honor and worked to overthrow the mutinous Taserface in Vol. 2. He appeared to have joined the Guardians by the end of Vol. 2, though he was not with them in Infinity War as they flew off to respond to the Asgardian distress call while jamming out to “Rubberband Man.”
Meanwhile, Gunn is already at work in writing Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3. On Tuesday, Gunn shared an image of himself on Instagram. It’s geotagged in Atlanta, from the set for another movie. In the caption, he wrote: “Done with shooting for the day. Now time to get a little writing done. #gotgvol3.”
Thanos’s destruction of the Marvel Cinematic Universe brings up a lot of questions regarding popular characters. With literally half the universe gone, it’s a 50/50 chance whether your favorites survived, or dissolved like Spider-Man, Black Panther, and most of the Guardians of the Galaxy. Virtually everyone on Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. were untouched, as evidenced by the most recent episode of Season 5. The heroes of Marvel/Netflix like the Defenders and the Punisher are probably also safe, since no one in the films know who they are.
Avengers: Infinity War is in theaters now.
