Rocket Raccoon Appearance in 'Infinity War' Teased by Marvel Writers
The Russo's have called Infinity War "the culmination of the Marvel Cinematic Universe to date." No pressure.
Last month, it was confirmed Star Lord would make an appearance in the film, with Anthony Russo claiming that Chris Pratt's character was the one he was most excited to work with. Now, the writers behind the films are teasing Rocket Raccoon to join his fellow guardian.
"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," Christopher Markus said when speaking about keeping the characters grounded. "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."
Stephen McFeely notes that the writers are prepared for the more out-there concept of the upcoming storyline, following from the more 'grounded' conflicts seen in the last two Captain America films.
"...before we get there, you’ll see Guardians 2, you’ll see Doctor Strange. My hope is that the movie audience will be a little bit more prepared for some trippier stuff."
