James Gunn has Big Plans for Rocket Racoon


James Gunn, director of Guardians of the Galaxy and it’s upcoming 2017 sequel, spoke to Clevver Movies at the Critics’ Choice Movie Awards earlier this week about his hopes for the franchise. Among these included big plans for fan favorite Rocket Racoon.

Gunn explained: “I have all of his origins stuff all planned out. I’ve planned that for a long time, whether or not or how much we get to see in Guardians 2, I’m not exactly sure. We’ll have to see about that.”

The possibility of a spinoff film starring Rocket Racoon was even discussed. “I’d like to see solo features from all of them,” said Gunn. “Obviously there’s a great Rocket and Groot movie that could come out of this. I love many of the characters. I love all these characters so much it’s hard to say who I would like to see made into a solo movie by someone else. It depends on who that someone else is. The truth is, I’d rather not see a solo movie made poorly by someone who didn’t understand the character and whose heart wasn’t in it.”
