James Gunn Reveals Who Is Voicing Guardians of The Galaxy’s Lylla, And It’s A MCU Favorite


With Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania having come out in February and now being available to buy digitally, with its physical release following next month and drop to Disney+ subscribers yet to be revealed, there are now just two upcoming Marvel movies left to look forward to this year. The next of those is a little over a week away, with Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 delivering the final hurrah with the title characters together as a group. We also know that we’ll learn more about the origins of Rocket, the “secret protagonist” of the Guardians franchise, which includes meeting one of his old friends, Lylla the otter. Well, thanks to James Gunn, it’s been revealed that this character is voiced by an established MCU favorite.

The filmmaker shared this information on Twitter while promoting a Vol. 3 clip posted by Collider, announcing that Linda Cardellini, who previously appeared as Laura Barton, wife of Jeremy Renner’s Clint Barton/Hawkeye, is voicing Lylla. This marks the fourth time that Cardellini and Gunn’s professional paths have crossed, as the former played Velma Dinkley in the two Scooby-Doo movies the latter wrote, and then they directly collaborated together on Super. Outside of the MCU, the last few years have seen the actress appear opposite Tom Hardy in Capone and co-star with Christina Applegate in Dead to Me, which can be watched with a Netflix subscription

The aforementioned clip shows a look back into Rocket and Lylla’s past on Counter-Earth, when they were subjects of Chukwudi Iwuji’s “complete piece of shit” character, The High Evolutionary, and deciding their names with their fellow chatty animal pals, Asim Chaudhry’s Teefs the walrus and Mikaela Hoover’s Floor the rabbit. This moment from Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 is an emotional watch, as the four animals are talking while locked up in their respective cages, thinking of when they’ll be able to forge their futures together in “the new world,” and we see that all of them have robotically altered in various ways. When he shared this clip on social media, James Gunn said the friendship between Rocket and those other animals was “one of audiences’ favorite aspects of the movie” during early test screenings.
