Rocket Raccoon Teased for AVENGERS: INFINITY WAR
The Russo Brothers have teased that we might see Star-Lord show up Avengers: Infinity War. It was fun to learn that we might see at least one of the Guardians show up in the movie, but now it sounds like Star-Lord might not be alone. During a recent interview with The Verge, Avengers: Infinity War co-writer Christopher Markus teased the possibility that Rocket Raccoon could show up! While talking about keeping all of the characters grounded in Infinity War he explained:
"Whether they’re a 12-foot purple guy, or a raccoon, or an android, they’re all people, and we’re going to write them as people. You can’t write them any other way. So, ideally it will stay grounded because you’ll completely understand why the characters are doing what they’re doing, and you will in some way or another empathize."
Judging from that statement, it sounds like they are planning on writing Rocket into at least an early draft of the script. Why else would they mention a raccoon along with Thanos and Vision? The thought of Rocket fighting alongside Iron Man, Captain America, Spider-Man, Ant-Man, and the rest of the Avengers is extremely exciting and very funny!
The first part of Avengers: Infinity War is set to hit theaters on May 4th, 2018, and the second part will come out on May 3rd, 2019.
