By the end of Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2, we see that Kraglin, who served as Yondu’s second-in-command in the Ravagers remains with the team after Yondu sacrificed his life to rescue Peter after Ego the Living Planet fades away.
Following Yondu’s death, Kraglin is now in possession of his telekinetic arrow and control fin. Although he is seen with the team at the end of the film his presence alongside Star-Lord, Gamora, Drax, Rocket, Groot and Mantis does not necessarily make him an official Guardian.
Writer and director James Gunn recently participated in a Facebook Live Q&A. During it, he addressed Kraglin’s role with the team:
“I would not say that Kraglin is an official member of the Guardians. I’d say Kraglin is now working with the Guardians of the Galaxy. At this point, he’s sort of like their chauffeur. I don’t know if you would exactly call him an official member.”
Sean Gunn brilliantly plays Kraglin in both Guardians films. Kraglin has a stronger presence in the sequel and is featured in some of the film’s most memorable moments, one of which includes a scene in which he is listening to Silver’s “Wham Bam” while enjoying some soup.
Kraglin’s future within the films is currently unknown, although it is probable that he will appear in Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3. As for Sean Gunn, he also serves as the on-set stand-in for Rocket (voiced by Bradley Cooper) for the films, including Marvel’s upcoming Avengers: Infinity War.

5 Reasons ‘Guardians Of The Galaxy Vol. 2’ Is Better Than The Original
When Guardians of the Galaxy hit cinemas in 2014 it surprised everyone. Offering a unique blend of whiz-bang intergalactic excitement, a groovy out-of-this-world soundtrack, a smörgåsbord of oddball characters, and wacky rib-clutching comedy, Guardians had it all. It was definitely the Marvel movie to beat… until Vol. 2 came out.
Offering the same blend of winning ingredients, but amping up the story, the characters, and the emotional resonance, Guardians Vol. 2 accomplishes the rare sequel feat of being even better than the original. A lot of people will disagree with me, but I believe the first film, while excellent, had certain storytelling flaws, which the sequel was able to remarkably overcome. The result is a brand-spanking new adventure for Star-Lord, Gamora, Drax, Rocket and Groot, that improves upon the original in several ways.
Here are the five reasons why Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 is better than the original. Click next to blast off! Please note that SPOILERS for Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 will follow!
