James Gunn Doesn’t Want Rocket & Groot To Cameo In Other Movies


In the latest issue of Total Film magazine, Guardians of the Galaxy director James Gunn talks about the process of voice casting both Rocket Raccoon and Groot as well as filming the odd pair.

As we have seen with the Avengers characters, some cameo in other films. 

Well, Gunn says he hopes that doesn’t happen for Rocket and Groot, because he’s afraid someone else won’t get the characters as he compares them to being his children.

I’m not sure about Rocket and Groot doing cameos in other Marvel movies. You don’t want your kid to date someone who’s going to treat them poorly and you don’t want your kid to go and show up in a movie that doesn’t really get who they are as a person. Even if your kid is dating a totally nice person, they have to get your child.  It’s the same with cameos, you have to make sure whoever is writing and directing those movies really understands Rocket and Groot and aren’t just using them as a cheap ploy for people to show up at the theater.


“Guardians of the Galaxy” has an August 1, 2014 release starring Chris Pratt as Star-Lord, Zoe Saldana As Gamora, Dave Bautista as Drax, Bradley Cooper as Rock et Raccoon, Vin Disel as Groot, Lee Pace as Ronan, Karen Gillan as Nebula, Djimon Houndsou as Korath, Michael Rooker as Yondu, Ben icio del Toro as The Collector, John C.
