Marvel star Michael Rooker is coming to Belgium!
Yondu in Guardians of the Galaxy / Merle Dixon in The Walking Dead
The Belgian comic con FACTS has another strong headliner: American actor Michael Rooker. Also known as Yondu in Marvel's Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 1 and 2, Merle Dixon in The Walking Dead, Savant in The Suicide Squad, Clyde Dutton in Netflix's Love and Monsters and many more.
The FACTS Forest fires off Ravager fireworks in celebration now that Marvel's Yondu Udonta has descended from the skies. Michael Rooker became a hugely popular actor after his amazing performances in Guardians of the Galaxy & Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2, but he was already a big name even before that. He helped AMC's The Walking Dead start off strong in 2010, with the captivating villainous role of Merle Dixon and a surprising, celebrated return in later seasons.
Michael Rooker has been working his way up the acting ladder since 1986 and continues to shine in recent years, as Savant in the 2021 DCU film The Suicide Squad, as Buddy in Fast & Furious 9, as Grant Grant in the horror film Slither, as Clyde Dutton in Netflix's Love and Monsters and many more.
Michael Rooker is the seventh and probably last actor in the line-up for the Spring edition of FACTS, alongside
- Richard Rankin (Outlander, The Syndicate, The Crimson Field, The Last Kingdom,...)
- Danny Trejo (Machete, The Book of Boba Fett, Sons of Anarchy, Breaking Bad,...)
- Natalia Tena (Harry Potter / Game of Thrones)
- Rick Hoffman (Louis Litt in Suits)
- And the Cobra Kai duo Jacob Bertrand and Peyton List.
This comic con also has a strong guest list of international Marvel, DC and European comic artists. Check out the full Artist Alley list here.
Michael Rooker will be present at FACTS Spring 2022, on Saturday 2 April and Sunday 3 April, at Flanders Expo Ghent. He will be available for photoshoots, autograph sessions and big Q&A shows. For tickets & info, visit www.facts.be
