Rocket Raccoon’s origin story will be explored in the new Guardians of the Galaxy film, director James Gunn says.

Gunn told Entertainment Weekly during San Diego Comic-Con over the weekend the backstory to the lovable yet aggressive character may be the only reason a third installment is coming.

He said: “For a while I wasn’t going to do this movie. Then I came back. And the reason I knew I needed to come back was to tell this story and, in some ways in particular, I have a special closeness to the character of Rocket and I knew I needed to finish to tell his story.

“I knew that that was what started me on this journey, was seeing who he could be and who he was, where he came from, and the thing that grounded me initially in the Guardians.”

The filmmaker explained that Vol.3 of the franchise will dive into Rocket’s past. This will include how he became a genetically enhanced creature, and the horrific torment he endured to be the Rocket we know today.

Footage revealed at the convention showed a baby Rocket, years before the world had shaped him.

Gunn also explained it marks 10 years since he first pitched Guardians of the Galaxy to Marvel Studios.

He added: “I realized that to tell the story honestly, he’s the saddest person or character in the universe.”

Pratt piped up on stage after the emotional clip, saying: “It really caught me off guard.”
