Now, with the arrival Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 not so much around the corner as on the other side of a 2016-shaped maze of twists and turns, we've most likely got a pretty long wait ahead of us when it comes to major plot announcements relating to the movie. It is, after all, not set to hit our screens for almost another two years.

When it comes to casting, though, we might just be set to see some movement a little more imminently... Y'see:

As it turns out, then:

Our Returning Character Is...Kraglin

A.k.a. Yondu's snarky first mate, a.k.a. Sean Gunn, a.k.a. the aforementioned James Gunn's brother and cinematic good luck charm.

Who, if we're being completely honest, we were already pretty certain to be seeing in the sequel.

The big question now, then?
