I can’t be sure about the rest of you, but as far as teams of Marvel superheroes go, I side with the Guardians over the Avengers. Sure, the Avengers kick a lot of butt, and take down a lot of names, but the Guardians of the Galaxy are just more my style, they seem like they would be more fun to hang around with and they also get to travel through space. As fun as a personal tour of Tony Stark’s laboratories would be, it wouldn’t compare to taking a ride on the Milano.

As the Guardians of the Galaxy grows ever more popular, fans become more acquainted with the characters, and naturally want to know more about what makes them who they are. According to director James Gunn, who spoke at the Hasbro HASCON, one of the more interesting members of the Guardians, Rocket Raccoon, may have his origin revealed in a future Marvel film (via MCU Exchange). When asked about Halfworld (Rocket’s home planet), and whether or not it would ever show up in the MCU, Gunn stated:

“As you know, the MCU is one way of processing these characters. 616 is a different one. We are going to learn more about where Rocket comes from in the coming sagas. It’s going to be a little different from the comics. We already know a lot about from where he came from. It’s a little bit more horrible than what it is in the comics when you come down to it. We will learn more about that.”

If Gunn is referring to how Rocket’s ancestors were made, that could be dark road to travel down as it deals with the a planet full of mentally ill patients and their genetically modified animal caretakers . What Gunn meant by “coming sagas” is up for discussion, but it doesn’t sound as if this is alluding to Rocket Raccoon getting his own film, it more sounds like his story will be shown during another film, such as Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3. I have to say I would watch Rocket in his own film, whether it be a spinoff or an origin story. Either way, I am interested to see this play out. Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 showed fans there was a lot more to Rocket than just being a snarky raccoon, and I don’t think I am the only one that wants to see some version of his comic book origins.

    …… kinda worried, because I re-read the Mike Mignola original comic….. AND IT WAS GLORIOUS! 80s RAD, Headless clowns, psycho bunnies, making love to otter ladies….. so yeah, I don’t care for the whole “HE’S BEEN MIND WIPED” storyline from current comics…. actually, what’s cool about guardians 2, was not ignoring the original guardians but instead saying “hey they are still here.” So even as a fan I was happy to see Lylla’s name in the Nova Corp prison scene.Actually kinda am optimistic considering how Baby Groot BRILLIANT IDEA and the comic never even touched it in the comics.
    As much as I’m a comic book fan….. some of the newer stuff is kinda meh, the red eyes on rocket is really silly, the movies handle it better.
