GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY: Kevin Feige Teases Surprise Appearances, James Gunn Talks Rocket Racoon

Guardians of the Galaxy is Marvel's first space adventure showing off a different side of the Cinematic Universe.  “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,” Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige teases.

 Feige went onto to say that past Marvel films have been building towards this first deep space outing. “We explored some of that in the first Thor and Avengers and then more so in Thor: The Dark World,” he explains.

Since this is Marvel's newest adventure a lot is riding on this film to be a success which according to James Gunn relies on one character: Rocket Raccon!.According to Gunn, Rocket is "the heart of the movie".

“He is most representative of the Guardians in the fact that he’s this little mangled beast that was taken and experimented on and torn apart and put back together, and we have to feel that character’s soul,” Gunn says. “If we see his plight, and see why he’s such an angry little guy, then the movie will work.”

Guardians of the Galaxy hits theaters August 1st.
