Tullk - Marvel
Who is Tullk?
Tullk is a Marvel character who is hired for by Ronan. Tullk will appear in the film Guardians of the Galaxy volume 2 and be played by actor Tommy Flanagan.
First Appearance: Ronan Annihilation #1
Real name: Tullk Ul-Zlyn
Tullk has a very limited history in Marvel comics I could only find him in two issues Ronan Annihilation #1 and #2.
Tullk is a mercenary and information broker during the time of the Annihilation Wave.
Ronan hires Tullk to locate Tana Nile whom Ronan believes framed him. Ronan pays Tullk with information on the Kree sentry patrols. Tullk is rightfully incredulous that Ronan would so willingly betray the Kree Empire. After Ronan leaves Tullk he sends a message to the Kree authorities that they have been compromised. This effectively rendered his payment to Tullk worthless.
Tullk contacts Ronan again to give Tana Nile's exact location. It is quickly revealed that this information came from Tana Nile herself. Nile warns him not to play both sides again.
After this Tullk's ship runs directly into the Annihilation Wave where he is apparently killed.
It is possible that Tullk could have survived the Annihilation Wave or that he was brought back after Secret Wars.
Tommy Flanagan will play Tullk in the MCU film Guardians of the Galaxy Vol 2. It could be that he is a member of the Ravagers or that he is an independent dealer.
Tommy Flanagan is well known for his part in the film Braveheart and his role on the television series Sons of Anarchy.
I have been looking for Tommy Flanagan's Tullk in the trailer and have had a hard time seeing anything that resembled him.
One picture I keep looking at is the picture of an explosion with seemingly blue people. At first I thought these were Ravangers but as I look closer I wondered if this could be another group. Maybe a group ran by Tullk. The main guy in particular I have wondered if it could be Tommy Flanagan. You can not see Flanagan's prominent scar across his cheek. The face of the guy looks a bit different but its hard to judge because he is making a weird face and is covered in make up and prosthetic.
A little added evidence that this theory has something to it is that I don't recognize the girl in the background either. At this point it is hard to say and I will let you, the astute readers of Toylab judge for yourselves.
MAKE MINE MARVEL!
