The first guests have been announced for Phoenix Comicon 2018.

Dave Bautista, Michael Rooker and Sean Gunn

This past year, a Mary Poppins actor was a big draw at Phoenix Comicon.

Next, Mary Poppins himself will be putting in an appearance — y’all. And he’s bringing some friends.

That is, Michael Rooker, aka Yondu Udonta in theΒ Guardians of the Galaxy films, is among the first guests announced for Phoenix Comicon 2018, taking place Memorial Day weekend, May 24-27, at the Phoenix Convention Center.

Rooker will appear Friday, Saturday and Sunday at the con. He’ll be joined those days by Sean Gunn, who plays Yondu’s Ravager underling Kraglin.

Dave Bautista, who played opposite Rooker as Drax the Destroyer, will appear that Saturday.

William Shatner

From the original Star Trek universe, Captain James T. Kirk himself, William Shatner, is also appearing.

Jason David Frank

And now the Green Ranger, Jason David Frank, is returning. (You’ll remember he was the first guest announced for the 2017 event, and was singled out by the suspect in this year’s security scare.)

Ming-Na Wen

Passes to Phoenix Comicon go on sale Dec. 15. Hotel sales started 10 a.m. this Friday, Nov. 17.
