‘Guardians of the Galaxy’ Concept Art Reveals Wildly Different Look For Yondu

Michael Rooker’s Yondu was one of the strangest and most memorable characters in James Gunn’s Guardians of the Galaxy, and who’s being set up to be a major player in next year’s highly-anticipated sequel, with one sequence involving the character at San Diego Comic-Con earlier this year being, arguably one of the coolest and most stylistic scenes I’ve ever witnessed in a comic book movie.

Am I being hyperbolic? No, just wait until you see it too.

The character’s look is fairly iconic now too, but in a new piece of early concept art for the first film revealed online by James Gunn, it looks like Yondu’s design was almost very different in the film:

This almost has a much more royal, almost egyptian look to it than what the final design ended up being, and while this design could have been very bad ass onscreen, I think it would have stood out a little bit too much from so many of the other characters’ costumes in the movie. Especially compared to all of the other Ravagers.

Meanwhile, Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 is set to hit theatres on May 5th, 2017.
