James Gunn brings a raccoon to Guardians of the Galaxy set

Guardians of the Galaxy - James Gunn and (Rocket) RaccoonAs speculation continues over who will voice Rocket Raccoon in Marvel’s forthcoming Guardians of the Galaxy (we still desperately want Jason Statham or Ray Winstone for the role), director James Gunn has brought a very special guest to the London set of the film.

Gunn had previously spoken about doing just this, so we can only assume that the raccoon will shortly be given weapons training and the ability to speak. Also: awwww! It’s adorable!

We also asume that bucket in the background is currently growing the sapling that will become Groot. Talk about method producing!
