Speaking to Total Film, Gunn said: “Rocket is the secret lead in Guardians of the Galaxy, and he’s always been the center of it for me, and this is really fulfilling that. The reason I came back and decided to do this movie was because he really felt that Rocket’s story needed to be told, and he got hung up after Volume 2.”
