This weekend, Michael Rooker was among the guests appearing at the inaugural Wizard World Las Vegas. Rooker, who is using his break between projects to connect with fans at the comic convention, will soon start filming Guardians of the Galaxy 2.
We had the chance to speak with Rooker during an exclusive interview at Wizard World Las Vegas.
How is Wizard World Las Vegas treating you?
It's been great so far. I wouldn't expect anything else.
Guardians of the Galaxy, obviously a huge success, the second one is coming up. Do you know when that's going to start filming?
Yes, but I think I forgot the exact date, so I'm not going to say anything.
Have you seen a script? Any surprises in store?
Oh, no. The scripts not ready yet. They're in the early stages of writing it.
I know you're good friends with James, so you would know!
He's working hard at it.
I also heard you mention Mallrats 2. Are you going to be in there?
Mallrats 2 - I'll be there.
As for The Walking Dead, we know Merle kicked the bucket like so many people do on that show, but that didn't stop David Morrissey or Emily Kinney popping back up.
Is that some thing you would want to do? Pop up in a flashback or in some way on the show?
That's up to AMC. I don't have any say in that, so we'll see what happens.
Would you like to see Merle Dixon in a flashback scene of AMC's The Walking Dead? What do you want to see from Guardians of the Galaxy 2?
