Yondu Makes A Surprise Cameo In A Thor: Ragnarok Deleted Scene

Contains spoilers for Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2

Of all of the surprising cameos in Thor: Ragnarok, this would've been the most shocking. But it was only filmed for some chuckles.

There's a new deleted scene from the upcoming Blu-ray release of the Marvel blockbuster starring Chris Hemsworth, and it features the unexpected return of Yondu (Michael Rooker), the Ravagers leader who selflessly sacrificed himself at the end of Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2

The Ragnarok scene takes place when Hela (Cate Blanchett) pushes Skurge (Karl Urban) to execute an innocent Asgardian. But just as Skurge is having a change of heart, a voice rises from the crowd: it's inexplicably Yondu, and he interrupts the moment. 

"Easy does it, hoss," he yells at Skurge before asking if anyone knows "where Kevin and Lou's offices are." Of course, he's referring to Marvel heads Kevin Feige and Louis D'Esposito, and it sounds like director Taika Waititi answers, "They're that way," before the clip comes to an end.

It's definitely good to see Yondu back in action after that touching Ravager funeral and all, but we probably shouldn't hold out hope for a full-on resurrection. We could potentially see more of Yondu in flashbacks in Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3, which director James Gunn is currently writing, but Yondu is still dead as disco in the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

Gunn confirmed as much during a Facebook Live session (via /Film). "Yondu is dead," he said. "I think it's very important that in these movies, there are stakes within the films. I am not into this old-school way of doing things, where you kill characters and you bring them back and then you kill them again and then you bring them back and their deaths mean nothing. Yondu is dead. It's sad. There could be a prequel Yondu film or a flashback or something like that. Yondu could exist in the past, but he's not going to come back to life, so long as I am involved with Marvel. It's just not going to happen."

That all makes sense, but it's really too bad. It would've been great to have seen how he would get along with the likes of Captain America and Doctor Strange in Avengers: Infinity War. We think he'd make one of them cry.

Thor: Ragnarok is available digitally now, and it'll be out on home video on March 6.
