“Ninety-nine percent of the film takes place on the other side of the universe with all new characters and all new worlds, although through certain connective tissue – such as Thanos in Avengers and some surprise appearances,” Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige teases.
He went onto to say that past Marvel films have been building towards this first deep space outing. “We explored some of that in the first Thor and Avengers and then more so in Thor: The Dark World.”
Since this is Marvel's newest adventure a lot is riding on this film to be a success which according to James Gunn relies on one character: Rocket Raccoon! According to Gunn, Rocket is "the heart of the movie".
“He is most representative of the Guardians in the fact that he’s this little mangled beast that was taken and experimented on and torn apart and put back together, and we have to feel that character’s soul,” Gunn says. “If we see his plight, and see why he’s such an angry little guy, then the movie will work.”
Alright, Galaxians. Who do you think we could see, based on Thor, Avengers, and Thor: The Dark World? Are there any cameos you'd like to see that could link back to Earth and the Avengers that we didn't see in the previous movies?
I'd love to find someone from the "Rocket is an alien" side of the argument, just to hear the opposing side. While I'm 100% Raccoon, I'd love to hear the debate from someone who is 100% Alien on the subject.
