The director of Marvel's Guardians Of The Galaxy has been chatting about the film, and the aliens Marvel can't use...
And we've got yet more for you on Guardians of the Galaxy here (following the trailer, the trailer analysis, the poster and the five character promo videos).
Because now, director James Gunn has been chatting to the Pointless Podcast, and amongst the topics of discussion was the alien species used in the film. "Marvel only partially owns Skrulls", Gunn revealed, adding that "and also for the record, we don't own the Badoon either. So people were asking why we have the Sakaaran in the film, we don't own the Badoon". So there you have it.
Gunn went on to discuss Rocket Racoon. "My brother Sean Gunn wore a little green suit and waddled around and he acted out Rocket", he said. "I think all »
One of the biggest complaints fans had with the first trailer for Marvel's Guardians of the Galaxy earlier this week is that we never hear Rocket Raccoon, voiced by Bradley Cooper, speak. Today, we can finally hear what this rambunctious raccoon sounds like in a brief behind-the-scenes featurette, which includes new footage and interviews with Bradley Cooper and director James Gunn. Watch, then read on for more details about who will be showing up in the second trailer.
In a separate interview with Pointless Podcast, director James Gunn revealed which characters will be introduced in the second trailer, and explained exactly who performed the motion-capture for Rocket Raccoon.

James Gunn, director of the much anticipated Guardians of the Galaxy, has been speaking to Total Film about the techniques used to bring Rocket Raccoon (who's set to be voiced by Bradley Cooper) to the screen in the cosmic Marvel movie. On set, Gunn made sure they had a real raccoon named Oreo in order to maintain a sense of reality during filming, “we needed a raccoon to study how he looked and his behavious, so that our on-screen raccoon, which is generated through CGI is realistic.”
Bradley Cooper wasn’t the only contribution to Rocket Raccoon, with the director's brother Sean also standing in for the character on set: “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, as well as my own animation… Bradley is one of those actors »

The Oscars don’t have everything covered. Unfortunately there is no award for Best Animal in an Acting Role. Perhaps if there were, Dunston from Dunston Checks In could be happily swinging around right now, an Oscar proudly clasped in one of his furry orange feet.

If such an award did exist, a probable nomination would be Oreo, the raccoon who is assisting in the creation of Guardians Of The Galaxy’s trigger-happy procyonid Rocket Raccoon, a CGI character voiced by American Hustle’s Bradley Cooper. In an interview with UK magazine Small Furry Pets, Guardians’ director James Gunn talked about Rocket and our Oscar-hopeful Oreo (which you can see the cute and cuddliness right here!):
“We needed a raccoon to study how he looked and his behavior, so that our on-screen raccoon, which is »

Speaking with Total Film magazine, Marvel Studios president of production Kevin Feige talked a bit about Guardians of the Galaxy. “Ninety-nine percent of the film takes place on the other side of the universe with all new characters and all new worlds, although through certain connective tissue – such as Thanos in Avengers and some surprise appearances,” he teased. Suggesting Marvel's been building towards a full-fledged space adventure that'll be Guardians, Feige says “we explored some of that in the first Thor, Avengers and then more so in Thor: The Dark World.” For his first interview since wrapping principal photography on Guardians of the Galaxy, James Gunn talked with British magazine Small Furry Pets. Revealing his brother Sean Gunn's contribution to the film, Gunn also talks up Rocket Raccoon and his on-set model, a real raccoon by the name of Oreo. “We needed a raccoon to study how he looked »
