There were a few notable characters missing from ‘Avengers: Infinity War‘ and one that has recently been mentioned is Kraglin. Yondu’s right hand man, who is played by Sean Gunn, didn’t appear in the most recent film and James Gunn has taken to Twitter to share why. Honestly, while Kraglin may have supported Yondu he wasn’t one of the ‘Guardians of the Galaxy’ so it isn’t too surprising he wouldn’t appear with the crew while they are out on their own adventure.
Still, you can’t help but enjoy hearing directly from Gunn why his brother didn’t show up in the movie:
Kraglin is still around – don’t worry! He has important stuff to do and all will be eventually revealed (thus has been my top question of the day btw so I’m glad to see you’re keeping him in your hearts!) https://t.co/n8X6UC7PaR

It looks as if this Ravager just had “important stuff to do.” Likely, he was off trying to build up a replacement set of space pirates so that he could continue in Yondu’s memory and possibly even make things right with the rest of the Ravagers.
Or, you know, he could be off spending whatever was left of his share from one of their last hauls.
The fun part though is that “Kraglin is still around” so it looks like he didn’t suffer the same fate as so many others in the film. While I’m not convinced at all that he will appear in the next movie as most of the Guardians will be out of the picture as it is released, I’m sure that he’ll pop up in ‘Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3’.
Are you happy to hear that Sean Gunn will likely reprise his role as Kraglin in an upcoming film or two? Do you feel that he might stop in to help Earth’s Mightiest Heroes in the still untitled ‘Avengers 4’? Share your thoughts below, True Believers!
