I really hope this isn’t some more casting news, but James Gunn has brought in a raccoon into the studio to study for the upcoming Guardians of the Galaxy movie. He plans on using live raccoons as the base for the Rocket Raccoon character, an anthropomorphized creature who loves blasting things to bit and fighting evil across the galaxy. Take a look at the photo revealed via twitter and think of how adorable this little guy could be in the movie!
James Gunn will direct Chris Pratt, Dave Bautista, Zoe Saldana, Michael Rooker, Glenn Close, Benicio Del Toro, Ophelia Lovibond and Lee Pace in the last Phase 2 Marvel film before Avengers 2. Most likely remembered as space Avengers, Guardians of the Galaxy will follow Starlord, Gamora, Drax the Destroyer, Groot, and Rocket Racoon in August 2014.
