A handful of loveable, hybrid animals have been added to the Marvel roster and we explore who Teefs the walrus is in Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3, introduce you to actor Asim Chaudhry, and discuss the rest of the cast.
We previously revealed Linda Cardellini to be the voice actor behind otter, Lylla, in the Marvel movie, who will star opposite Teefs.
Directed by James Gunn, Guardians of the Galaxy Volume 3 will serve as the final film in the GOTG trilogy and the 32nd film in the MCU, starring an ensemble cast including Chris Pratt, Zoe Saldaña, Dave Bautista, Karen Gillan, Pom Klementieff, Vin Diesel, Bradley Cooper, Will Poulter, Elizabeth Debicki, and Sylvester Stallone.
Who is Teefs from Guardians of the Galaxy 3?
Teefs the walrus was introduced during Marvel’s short clip for Guardians of the Galaxy 3, when Rocket, Lylla the otter, Floor the Rabbit, and Teefs were discussing what names they would like to have.
Teefs is likely based on the Marvel Comics character Wal Rus, who was an engineer that assisted Rocket, first appearing in Incredible Hulk #271.
The pair battled against Lord Dyvyne and the Black Bunny Brigade and GOTG 3 likely assigned the walrus the name Teefs because of his long tusks – which are metallic in the comics.
