convincing the GA is the hard part...
the GA has to see this has an Avengers 1.2 to get on the hype train

You could add ROTPOTA's Caesar to that list.

In fact, Rocket Racoon seems like a CG role tailor-made for Andy Serkis. That's become his stock in trade.

Yes, I know they are talking to CG characters. However, there come a point where the need for suspension of disbelief goes too far. Hulk, while large and green, is still a human. Rocket Raccoon is, well, he's a talking raccoon from outer space.

One is a different humanoid species. The other is an alien who looks alien. Rocket is an alien that looks like a cute little animal from our planet.

When I think of this character interacting with our establish reality based universe, I see images of every movie that has tried to integrate talking CG animals into live action films. Scooby-Doo, Garfield, Underdog, Alvin and the Chipmunks, etc.

Rocket Raccoon isn't all that different from the multitude of non-humanoid aliens from Star Wars and various other space operas. How well the GA receive him just depends of Marvel Studios' presentation and execution of the character. IMO I can see him being the every bit the ensemble darkhorse/spotlight stealing squad that the Hulk was in TA.

Oh, the naysayers will wail as they always do but in the end they too will welcome our furry overlord.

Mark my words, a few years from now you'll all be talking about how awesome RR is and how you supported him all along.

But he will know the truth.

Rocket Racoon is a badass. I could easily see him having a Hit-Girl effect in popularity: Doesn't look like a character who can kickass, but is actually a character who kicks all sorts of ass, making him that much more cooler.

I think this could be genius from Marvel. There is a Star Wars sized hole in Hollywood that no one has managed to fill. Anyone that fills that hole will make a fortune.

Rocket Raccon toys will fly off the shelves as kids absolutely lap this up.
I think this story has legs.

So it is somewhat official? A movie with a talking racoon? Alvin and the Chipmunks in space? Can't say I'm too excited. Strange or Panther had way more potential. This one will be hard to swallow for everyone who isn't a hardcore fan.

I think a space drama will be fun and will feel new and fresh rather than Black Panther or Ant Man that may feel tired and wrote.

1) The Thanos Imperative.
2) The Thanos Imperative.
3) The Thanos Imperative.

That's your gateway, and GOTG and Avengers 2 will both probably draw heavily from that miniseries.

Alvin and the Chipmunks is a billion-dollar franchise....your point is....?

There's been quite a few "talking animal" movies that made HEAPS of box office cash.....here's a list:

Why would space opera be hard to swallow....? I can't even think of a single space opera movie or TV series that failed.....Star Wars? Star Trek? Battlestar Galactica? Stargate SG-1? Babylon 5? Even beyond the confines of the MCU, GOTG would be hugely successful even as a standalone movie....it has every box-office gold element you could ask for: space wars, ray gun shoot-em-ups, galaxy-smashing Big Bads, hot naked alien chicks, cute fuzzies, he-man two-fisted pulp heroes....this is the very definition of "high concept."

I'd like to add The Thanos Quest, which is IMO the quintessential Thanos tale.

Quite frankly I'd classify him as more of a non-humanoid alien than a talking animal, not that dissimilar from guys like Chewbacca or Yoda.

still, the concept of RR reminds me of this guy here:




and this is cheesy 60ies sci fi as it can get.

If you are going to do a space drama you have to commit to it. I think Green Lantern failed because it couldn't decide whether to be set on Earth or not. If you are going to have it in space HAVE IT IN SPACE.

Also I think some people want to have their cake and eat it too.
They moan that Marvel don't own all the superhero Marvel properties in one breath and then moan that only two Marvel movies are coming out a year in the next breath.

And they are all either corny, cheesy, down right stupid, or a kids/family movie.
