Things We Saw Today: Is Rocket Raccoon Getting An Origin Movie?

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. It’s going to be a little different from the comics. We already know a lot about from where he came from. It’s a little bit more horrible than what it is in the comics when you come down to it. We will learn more about that.”

Hmm…what could “in the coming sagas” mean? Will it be in Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3? One of the Avengers films? A Rocket standalone film? (via /Film)
