That can't be a coincidence.
They look so good together!
Love that GIF, looking forward to Rockets role here a lot.
Rocket's in pretty much the same boat as Thor (maybe literally, since it looks like a fishing cabin he's entering in the trailer) ... but he's got nothing left, either. Maybe less even.
I was surprised how much Rocket was in this and how he actually got to interact with everyone. I’m glad they didn’t waste an opportunity to use him so well.
One of the biggest highlights of Endgame.
1. Slapping Thor in the face
2. Being hugged by Thor on his belly
3. Shocking Stark and Banner with a "boom!" when placing the stones in the Gauntlet
This is an issue for me given the time skip and then KEEPING all that history.
When GOTG3 happens well... Rocket and Nebula are very different people now. Or they should be. Is that all just going to be ignored? Rocket stuck around for five years going back and forth from space to Earth it seems. Teaming with Earth's representatives regularly if we go by the movie, even if he an Nebula spent time in space. This should have an effect on the character.
I'm looking forward to seeing where things go from here for Rocket. That was an emotional gauntlet he went through. You could see a guy who had just lost everything. Until they really had a way to try to save everyone...he was broken. Plenty of moments where you'd expect more snark, but it wasn't there. Because of course it wasn't. He'd lost his entire family.
I can't wait to see how he is in Volume 3. He spent years without the Guardians, but finally got them back. He was already someone who was understanding how important they were to him in Volume 2.
This just came to me, but... Why didn't the rescue of Nebula and Tony happen sooner? Rocket was on Earth. He left them and they went to Knowhere in IW. He didn't know about his friends going to Titan, but he must have had a way to track the Guardian's ship. And with Thor having Stormbreaker they should have theoretically been able to get to wherever the ship was.
Rocket was great I liked his line to Stark
"You're only a genius on Earth" Not saying Rocket is smarter than Stark and others but he has to be up there.
If Tony had been around all the tech that Rocket has been around most of his life, I'm sure he'd be a tad more advanced than he is with just Earth technology.
I wouldn't call him a highlight. Nebula had more moments. To me, out of the main/supporting cast that wore the white suits, Rocket had the least important/impactful role in the film.
The "boom" line though made me laugh.
Great as always. He is just that good of a character. Even in a more subdued role he’s still a highlight.
The “are you going to get another haircut” line cracked me up.
Rocket doesn't have opposable thumbs. That's a major obstacle he pushed through.
He was great but I wanted more. I love that he is the one character who never minces his words and tells it like it is even to a god like Thor.
Yeah, he works very well with Thor.
I hope that Gunn doesn't regress Rocket in the next GOTG. He's become more than just the mischievious ******* with a creamy center of goodness under it all. He's made connections with people, cares and took on responsibility. They showed him bonding with Thor but after his time on Earth I'd actually like to see him clashing with Quill. In fact Quill and Rocket vying for leadership now makes more sense to me than the two would be Alphas in Peter and Thor going at it.
Honestly, my own read on the ending scene. . .
Is that Thor was doing that deliberately. Its not that he wants to be leader, he just was having a little fun at the expense of Peter Quill's ego. Think of it as the baby step into doing the kind of secret tests of character that myth had Odin doing.
What's crazy is that
due to the time jump, Rocket has spent more time with Nebula and maybe even some of the Avengers than he did with Quill, Drax and Gamora. Possibly even Groot too but it's unclear how long they knew each other before the events of GOTG.
He was indeed awesome as always, love Rocket
One of the many highlights of the film for me!
I gotta say the dude has range. From the likes of fratboy humor in the Avengers to several Oscar nods Silver Linings Playbook/American Sniper/A Star is Born to playing a CGI raccoon mercenary; Cooper has talent.
Cooper since becoming a bonafide leading man following THE HANGOVER always seems to be at his best, in SLP, American Hustle, American Sniper, ASIB and playing RR in all the character's MCU appearances to date mostly, when playing damaged, at times *****ey, angry characters trying to heal themselves and it's a testament to his dedication that he invests Rocket with the same kind of tough humor and sadness that he invested, say, his Chris Kyle with...and yet however many times I hear his vocal performance I additionally love the fact that it's the rare case when an A List actor is actually bothering to use a voice different to their own when hired for one of those gigs.
