  • "Stakar had banished Yondu many years earlier for doing something wrong and he finally sees him almost twenty years later at this particular establishment called the Iron Lotus where all of the Ravagers go to blow off steam. And then we have a confrontation which is pretty intense and it's kind of a father/son type of thing and now he's going to have to pay the piper. His karma has come back ten-fold."
  • "It was interesting because I love Marvel films, but I haven’t ventured into the genre, so it was quite an experience. When I walked on the set, there were robots and things, a woman who was seven feet tall, and everything else. I thought, ‘This is great. This is a great vacation. It’s better than being up a tree in Burma,’ you know what I mean?"
  • "Early on in my career I became fascinated with mythology. Joseph Campbell’s Hero with a Thousand Faces, and so on and so forth. When I started doing Rambo, I came to understand there’s an evolution that takes place. Every generation has to find itself, define its own heroes, define its own mythology. And Marvel is this generation’s – and maybe even the next generation’s – mythology. And when Kevin invited me on board I said, ‘This is interesting because I haven’t gone here. I’m kind of Earth-bound. I’m terrestrial. This is something that takes place in a whole other sphere where James and the Marvel people have created their own world, their own reality. So I said, ‘Yeah, let me visit. Let me drop in here and see what’s up, where the future is going.’ And it was great. It got me out of the house from my three daughters. And that’s why I gave them my salary back."
