Rocket – A Raccoon Superhero Of MCU


Based on the Marvel Comics superhero of the same name, Rocket is a fictional character in the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU) media series, voiced by Bradley Cooper. Sean Gunn’s motions and those of an actual raccoon named Oreo served as the basis for Rocket. Rocket is portrayed as a hot-tempered mercenary and weapons expert who joins the Guardians of the Galaxy in their conflict with Ronan the Accuser and his sidekick Groot.

Rocket continues to be a part of the Avengers after the Blip. He helped build the Nano Gauntlet that Bruce Banner used to heal the trillions of lives lost throughout the universe when he and his friends utilized the time to travel to retrieve the Infinity Stones from the past successfully. After the Guardians defeat Thanos in the final battle, he rejoins the group and sets for space with Thor by his side.

As of 2022, Rocket has appeared in six MCU films, one episode of the I Am Groot series of animated shorts on Disney+, the TV special The Guardians of the Galaxy Holiday Special (2022), and the upcoming film Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 (2023). Rocket first made an appearance in Guardians of the Galaxy (2014), and since then, he has established himself as a critical figure in the franchise.

Concept And Creation.

The Beatles’ song “Rocky Raccoon” served as the inspiration for the comic book character, which was created by Bill Mantlo and Keith Giffen. Under the name “Rocky,” Rocket Raccoon made his comic book debut in Marvel Preview #7 (Summer 1976), in the supporting role of “The Sword in the Star.” The Incredible Hulk #271 (May 1982), where it is revealed that “Rocky” is short for “Rocket,” would be his subsequent appearance.

In an afterword to the first issue of his four-issue limited series in 1985, Mantlo maintained that this was the same character from Preview, which was drawn by Mike Mignola and inked by Al Gordon and Al Milgrom. Rocket first appears in 1990’s Quasar #15 and then in issues #44–#46 of 1992’s Sensational She-Hulk.

Throughout his first ten comic books, the character only made an appearance ten times. After making a brief appearance in an Exiles issue from 2006, Rocket Raccoon was next featured in the 2007 limited series Annihilation: Conquest, its spin-off series Annihilation: Conquest – Star-Lord, and a new volume of Guardians of the Galaxy. He continued to be a regular cast member up until issue #25 of the 2010 series’ cancellation.

At the San Diego Comic-Con International in 2010, Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige initially broached the subject of a prospective Guardians of the Galaxy movie, saying, “There are some obscure titles, too, like Guardians of the Galaxy. I think they’ve been revamped recently in a fun way in the [comic] book.”

There is a chance to create a significant space epic in the cosmic aspect of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, which Thor sort of alludes to, Feige reaffirmed in a September 2011 issue of Entertainment Weekly. Should the movie be produced, according to Feige, it would include a cast of characters akin to the X-Men and The Avengers.

At the 2012 San Diego Comic-Con International during the Marvel Studios panel, Feige revealed that the movie was actively being developed, with a planned August 1, 2014 release date. He declared that the titular cast of the movie would include Star-Lord, Drax the Destroyer, Gamora, Groot, and Rocket. Bradley Cooper was revealed by Marvel to be Rocket in the Guardians of the Galaxy in August 2013.

Rocket was portrayed in Guardians of the Galaxy as a genetically modified raccoon-based bounty hunter, mercenary, and expert with weaponry and combat techniques. To obtain the right feel for the character and to ensure that it was realistic, Gunn worked with live raccoons “not a cartoon character,” adding, “It’s not Bugs Bunny in the middle of the Avengers, it’s a real, little, somewhat mangled beast that’s alone. There’s no one else in the universe quite like him, he’s been created by these guys to be a mean-ass fighting machine”.

The persona was likewise modeled on Gunn. Cooper described Rocket in comparison to the other Guardians, “I think Rocket is dynamic. He’s the sort of Joe Pesci in Goodfellas guy.”

James Gunn’s younger brother, Sean Gunn, played the part during filming while Cooper provided the voice for Rocket. Although a lot of Sean Gunn’s acting is used throughout the movie, James Gunn stated that some physical motions from Cooper, including facial expressions and hand movements, were recorded as potential influences for the animators for the part of Rocket.

Sean said that because they “weren’t sure how we were going to create that character,” they “kind of stumbled” into the process of having him perform on-site. For each of Rocket’s following appearances, the same procedure was utilized. Before Cooper was cast, James Gunn claimed that finding a voice for Rocket was difficult and that he was searching for someone who could balance “the fast-talking speech patterns that Rocket has, but also can be funny, because he is really funny. But also has the heart that Rocket has. Because there are actually some pretty dramatic scenes with Rocket.”

The appearance of Rocket was based on a real raccoon named Oreo, as well as Cooper’s voice and Sean Gunn’s movements. Regarding the procedure, James Gunn said, “We needed a raccoon to study how he looked and his behavior, so that our on-screen raccoon, which is generated through CGI will be realistic. Our Rocket is based on a combination of our voice actor, Bradley Cooper, our on-set actor, my brother Sean Gunn, the movements and behavior and look of Oreo [the raccoon], as well as my own animation.” Gunn took Oreo to the movie’s red-carpet premiere.

Sean Gunn again played the part during the filming of Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2, with Bradley Cooper’s portrayal being mentioned.

Sean Gunn said that “Rocket has the same sort of crisis of faith [that he had in the first film] about whether or not he belongs in this family”, with James Gunn adding, “this is really about Rocket coming to terms with accepting his place within a group of people, which probably seemed like a good idea” when they were heroes together at the end of the first film, but now “he’s just not very comfortable with the idea”.

Groot was Rocket’s defender in the first movie, but now Rocket is Groot’s protector, according to Feige, who also noted that the relationship between Rocket and Groot has changed.
