James Gunn, the director of Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3, says that the upcoming movie will finally delve into Rocket’s emotional roots.  

The titular superhero team has appeared in a number of other MCU films despite Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 being released back in 2017.

Despite the fact that there are still many unanswered questions regarding how Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 will wrap up the story of the titular team.

Director James Gunn recently disclosed in an interview with ComicBook.com that the movie will focus on Rocket’s backstory.  

The director is cautious about giving away too many spoilers for the future film.

But he does hint that Rocket’s background will be the main centre of the overall emotional drama he has in mind. 

Rocket has a long history in the Marvel comics, despite the fact that it is only briefly revealed in the first Guardians of the Galaxy.

The comics indicate that a team of intelligent robots tasked with looking after a planet of mentally ill humans conducted the tests on Rocket. 

In order to be able to relocate to the other half of the globe, the robots produced Rocket Raccoon to effectively take their position as guardians.

Rocket in Cooper’s portrayal is prone to yelling and avoids showing any form of emotional openness.
