With James Gunn’s Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 seemingly now a part of Marvel’s Phase 5, pending an appearance in something like The Eternals or Thor: Love and Thunder, it could be a while before we see the Ravagers onscreen again. Fear not though, because the band of interstellar rogues won’t be entirely absent from the world during that time. In fact Sean Gunn is actually teasing an upcoming Ravager reunion. Take a look:
Yes, you can meet the Ravagers in person, and unlike Peter Quill, you don’t need to get abducted by Yondu's Ravager Clan to do it. As Sean Gunn teased on his Instagram, a Ravager reunion, or as he dubbed it, a “Ravager Hoedown” will be happening at Bubba Fest! America’s Original Southern-Fried Comic Con, which takes place in Knoxville, Tennessee from August 23-25.
Sean Gunn, who plays the on-set Rocket Raccoon in the Guardians of the Galaxy and the two most recent Avengers films, as well as the Ravager Kraglin, will reunite at the convention with actor and fellow Ravager, Chris Sullivan. Chris Sullivan played the hilariously-named and unfortunate-looking Taserface in the second Guardians movie. He was the Ravager who mutinied against Yondu, was ripped by Rocket and died. Chris Sullivan is also known for his roles in This Is Us and Stranger Things.
These two former cinematic allies will be reuniting after Sean Gunn’s Kraglin accidentally started Taserface’s mutiny in Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2. This reunion will give fans an opportunity to meet two of the Ravagers in person and undoubtedly ask pressing questions about the beloved projects they are and have been in.
For Sean Gunn, that means Avengers: Endgame (yup, he was in there) questions and for Chris Sullivan, that means This Is Us, in addition to the Guardians questions of course. Chris Sullivan and Sean Gunn are also both slated to reprise their respective roles in voice form for Marvel’s upcoming Disney+ series What If…?, so that represents a whole host of possibilities fans can ask futile questions about.
Although Sean Gunn and Chris Sullivan are the only two Ravagers that will be in attendance at Bubba Fest!, there are many other famous and familiar names from the worlds of film, television, wrestling and comics who will be in Knoxville. Among them are Chuck Norris, Michael Madsen, Lee Majors, Brian O’Halloran, David Fielding, Jamie fookin’ Lannister himself Nikolaj Coster-Waldau and the creator/co-creator of Thanos, Drax, Gamora and Shang-Chi, Jim Starlin.
Other than the aforementioned What If…?, we’ll presumably next see the Ravagers and Sean Gunn’s Kraglin in his brother James Gunn’s Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3. With Yondu dead and Kraglin leading the Ravagers into battle in Avengers: Endgame, we’ll have to see if he plays an even bigger role in the third film.
