It was always a given that Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 would bring back its five core cast members (Chris Pratt, Zoe Saldana, Dave Bautista, Bradley Cooper, and Vin Diesel). But the status of the franchise’s supporting characters have been a little less certain. Yondu (Michael Rooker) and Nebula (Karen Gillan) are both confirmed to return; Ronan (Lee Pace), not so much.

One of the great strengths of Guardians of the Galaxy is how it just drops you into the deep end of this crazy, cosmic universe and expects you to keep up with it.
