Chris Pratt is only an example.
I've seen what Gunn has had to say on the subject and I'm not going to call him a liar, because I don't think he is. But if you think Marvel is going to plop down $150-200 million for a movie with a talking raccoon in it and not have some say in it, I have a bridge in Brooklyn I'd like to sell you. Sorry, I just can't imagine Disney/Marvel being like "Ok dude, do whatever you want just let us know how much money you need." I just don't see it. And this goes beyond the casting process.
