Or at least a big portion of the upcoming GotG movie hangs on the small galactic hero's shoulders. Talk about being under pressure Rocket! Now I know that comic book movies like to do their own things with characters and so forth, but my worries for this is that they are gonna make Rocket just one of the members who wields big guns...and that's it.
I hope that isn't only what they do, and they show Rocket as the teams strategist/tactician....maybe even leading the team should something happen to Starlord during the movie? Cause Rocket isn't just someone with big weapons, he is a far more valuable member to the team than that...in other words..
"The Guardians of the galaxy are nothing without me!"- Rocket Raccoon.
Which while a quote from a game(unless he has also said this elsewhere), I could see where it holds true. While Starlord can also lead the team and so forth, Rocket brings more to the table really...I just hope the movie shows this rather then just showing him as a gun wielding alien raccoon.
The other concern I have is the audience is just gonna look at him and think "wtf is with this thing?" so I am hoping that the movie makes Rocket in a better light then just looking like a talking animal.
But anyway...just wanted to rant a little there, and I really hope the movie doesn't screw up. I know it's a long way away from now and things can change...but I just wanted to throw my view of the now here.
