Rocket Raccoon May Join ‘Avengers: Infinity War’


Captain America: Civil War is without a doubt a major hit both critically and commercially, and thanks to the success of this film and The Winter Soldier, Marvel has taken a liking for Anthony and Joe Russo, for the studio has given the directing duo the keys to direct the epic Marvel universe team-up movie to end all team-up movies in the two-part Avengers: Infinity War (which may be retitled). Coming along for the ride are screenwriters Christopher Markus and Stephen McFeely, who have the duty to compile all these larger-than-life characters into this two-part extravaganza.

It’s safe to assume that the current roster of Avengers that we know as of right now will be ready for battle against the villainous Thanos (Josh Brolin) and his infinity gauntlet. But let’s not forget about the new characters that debut in Phase 3 with Black Panther, Spider-Man, Doctor Strange, and Captain Marvel (whom the Russo brothers may have confirmed appears in Infinity War). But Markus may have let slip in an interview with The Verge  that a fan favorite Guardian may make an appearance.

When asked about the process of writing these comic book characters for the screen, Markus replied:

Also, 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.

Perhaps, we can take this as a possibility that Markus and McFeely have intentions of writing Rocket Raccoon into the Infinity War films. Rocket Raccoon was one of the breakout characters in James Gunn’s Guardians of the Galaxy and has instantly become a fan favorite among audiences. The thought of having the Bradley Cooper-voiced raccoon interact with Earth’s Mightiest Heroes is unbelievably exciting. You can next see him in Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 on May 5, 2017.

    Was there any chance that all the Guardians don’t make it into some part of either Infinity War movie?

      Not really.

  • Scott Whalen

    I venture to say that all of the Guardians will be there in the end.

  • Worldmind

    So Captain Marvel is in, Rocket’s in. Will there be a news story like this for each of the gazillion character’s appearing? Guess it helps count down the time 😉

  • Worldmind

    More importantly, will there be a Jub-jub scene? :)
