According to ComicBook.com on Jan. 20, "The Walking Dead's" Michael Rooker, who plays Yondu in James Gunn's "Guardians of the Galaxy", had recently described his character as not entirely accurate of that of the comic book version. Though he wasn't able to say too much to spoil the film, Rooker did explain there wouldn't be any kind of exaggerated hairstyle nor loin cloth involved.

“As you can see from some of the photos out there, I’m not in a loincloth. I don’t have a major, major fin thing that goes down my back. We haven’t visually gone with the way that Yondu was in the comics".

The color of the character he is playing will be a basic blue that took around six hours to apply to his body. Of course, according to Rooker, there will be other plentiful colors involved. Some fans may have not only the pictures released online when Gunn was filming on location, but characters with a similar variety of color was seen in the end teaser of "Thor: The Dark World".

“Lovely, beautiful colors. What do you expect? It is a superhero movie. And I hope that you see it, and you’re going to be going ‘I’m going to see this again.’ That’s what I hope".

He later explained the awesome power of Gunn's directing abilities and clarified how much he was attracted to Rooker's artistic abilities.

“He allows me to do my thing, and he has great comments. Very good director…when you’re lost in the woods, he can direct you".

"Guardians of the Galaxy" will be released come Aug. 1.
