Guardians of the Galaxy director James Gunn was quoted at Hasbro's HASCON, saying, "We are going to learn more about where Rocket comes from in the coming sagas." But what "coming sagas" could those be?Read More
To celebrate the first day of filming in Atlanta, Marvel Entertainment released a teaser for Avengers: Infinity War. The video is depressingly wall-to-wall white men, but it also delivers hype-worthy concept art, clips from the set, and confirmation of the Guardians/Avengers team-up.Read More
Marvel’s New Teaser for Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 Shows Us Rocket and Groot’s Goofy Father-Son Dynamic
Marvel's calling this new video spot for Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 a "teaser," but there's so much new info packed into it that I'd call it a "trailer."Read More
When Groot was but a young sapling.
The animated Guardians of the Galaxy: Origins show has been revealing the bittersweet beginnings of each of the team's heroes, one by one. So far, we've seen a young Peter Quill, and now we have a look at a sapling-sized Groot (and, in part two, a brief glimpse of baby Rocket Raccoon).Read More
Groot Groot Groot Groot, Groot Groot Groot. Groot.Read More
The hoodie does not come with a gun to shoot off the legs of your rival.
The hoodie-tank is only available through Hot Topic, and I'm going to assume that they've got the Groot one in a pot somewhere, waiting for it to get big enough for retail.Read More

The Legend of Kevin Bacon
While Guardians of the Galaxy is zooming into home video release (on discs on December 9th, but available on digital formats tomorrow), we're getting lots of little tastes of the movie's special features to whet our appetites for getting a copy of our very own. Above, Bradley Cooper records dialogue and facial expressions for Rocket, below Vin Diesel does the same for Groot, and finally, John C. Reilly's Rhomann Dey has a bit of a wardrobe malfunction in a deleted scene.Read More

Marvel Announces National Bullying Prevention Month Variant Covers Featuring Rocket Raccoon, Captain America, & More
YOU MAKE HULK SAD
Now here's some variant covers I'd be honored to own.Read More
I've talked often about how successful comic book movies don't necessarily get new readers into comic shops (and don't really try to) but it seems that just this once, it's happened. People freaking love a potty-mouthed raccoon a whole lot.Read More
We've got issues. Lots of issues.
Welcome to Pull it Together, where the goal isn’t to tell you exactly what comics you should read, but to narrow the field by showing you titles you shouldn’t overlook. It isn’t about what’s on my pull list, it’s about what could be on yours!Read More
Marvel Puts On Private Screening of GotG For Rocket Raccoon’s Creator, Film’s Director Also Makes Us Feel Feelings
Sad ones. Sniff.
I won't get to see Guardians of the Galaxy until tonight, unfortunately, but I've already heard that for a story which involves talking raccoon and a giant Vin Diesel tree, it's a surprising tearjerker. Speaking of surprising tearjerkers, you know what else gets me all choked up? Literally everything else I've heard about GOTG so far, starting with the screening Marvel put together for disabled Rocket Raccoon creator Bill Mantlo.Read More
I am cute—um, Groot.
When filmmaker Patrick Willems and Kendra Pettis attend a major convention like SDCC, they like to go around asking kids about their costumes. The resulting video is always cute, but their latest is especially heartwarming, because it features our favorite kid cosplayer of all time: tiny Rocket Raccoon. Gah, my HEART.Read More
"You're welco—OH! OH GOD! GO AWAY!"
We've been shocked at how every single trailer for Guardians of the Galaxy looks better than the last. These official costumes... not so much. I'd find it endearing that GotG is still capable of such a misstep if any other emotions could make their way through the all-encompassing terror I feel at seeing these CostumeCraze.com outfits. More Rocket, plus Drax the Destroyer and Ronan, are behind the jump... if you dare.Read More
We've got issues. Lots of issues.

Things We Saw Today
Hint: he sounds a lot like Bradley Cooper.
Have you been curious what Rocket Raccoon will sound like in Guardians of the Galaxy? Sure you have. It's been the big question since Bradley Cooper was cast. Well, we finally have a quick glimpse at Rocket speaking in this new teaser. There's also one for Groot, but he doesn't say anything.Read More
Well, that's a thing that's happening.
Last week we told you that there were rumors Bradley Cooper was being offered the role of Rocket Raccoon in Marvel's upcoming Guardians of the Galaxy. Now according to an official release, he's definitely in. I feel like I should be upset about this, but Batfleck has sucked me dry of any and all casting-related emotions.Read More
