The latest adventure featuring Marvel’s fan-favorite Guardians of the Galaxy in a huge battle against a powerful enemy willing to destroy the universe to enact his own will, forcing the team to live up to their name once again.
But Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 also continued the humorous and heartfelt adventure that began in the first film, comprising of many memorable moments and hilarious one liners that fans are still reciting months later. One moment in particular has since been etched into the cultural zeitgeist: when Michael Rooker's Yondu famously yells, “I’m Mary Poppins, y’all.”
We caught up with Rooker at San Diego Comic-Con while he was promoting the upcoming home video release of Guardians Vol. 2, and he said he had no idea that line was going to be a massive hit. Check it out in the video above!
“You don’t know which line it’s going to be, honestly,” Rooker said. “You just do the movie and all the sudden, you know it when it happens. But you don’t know it reading the script… Because you get the same reaction. You’ve got about 100, like 55 people, sometimes more crew people, other actors, director, producers, all the people that end up actually making the movie. I’m just a tiny little piece of it. And so when they react to something you say, and you’re kind of like ‘yeah, we nailed that.’”
Rooker said he thanked director James Gunn for giving him that line and has since gone on to embrace its impact. Fans have been clamoring for the actor to have a cameo in Disney’s Mary Poppins Returns, the line has spawned tons of fan art online, and he himself has a Mary Poppins case for his cellphone.
Fans will be able to watch the line over and over again when Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 hits Digital HD on August 8, followed by Blu-ray and DVD on August 22.
