Damn it this just gets me more annoyed that Sony and Fox STILL have sooo many Marvel characters!!!

A SECRET WARS movie might be the ONLY way they could ever team up in this climate, let's face it having Fox and Sony characters in the mix would make mega bucks and you could introduce Venom in a more organic way...

 Marvel's doing this and Marvel's doing that and Marvel is cocky.  Let's not lose track of who's the brains and the bucks behind all of this... The Walt Disney Company...they pull strings (marketing, distribution etc)...Marvel is just one of their brands.

When the hell did Uhura become an Orion Slave Girl?

On an interesting note, Blue Swede's Hooked on a Feeling song sales have gone through the roof since the trailer's debut. LOL!

2000 downloads on one day, up about 700% in daily sales.

They don't mention Hulk in the post because the Hulk movie wasn't a hit. The reviews were ok and the box office totals weren't that great. As a marketing standpoint, would you mention your weakest entry?

When a new Spielberg movie comes out, they don't say "from the director of The Terminal and Always".

When Ridley Scott has a new movie, they don't say "from the director of Robin Hood and Kingdom of Heaven"

 Tell you more hanso?

Well, if you want to get into the origins of the little guy it really all started centuries ago when a planet now called Halfworld located in the Keystone Quadrent was colonised by a humaniod race for the purpose of turning into an insane asylum. (If you look at the graphic display in the trailer it does say Halfworld is RR's planet of origin).  Apparently funding was cut off for the ayslum and the founders or "shrinks" had to return home, leaving robots behind to take care of their patients.  However the robots became sentient and didn't want to take care of the "loonies" anymore.  So they genetically modified the patient's pet animals to be intelligent and well, anthropomorphic so they could take care of them.  The robots moved to the other side of the planet and engaged in heavy industrilaztion in order to build a large starship while the animals and patients (or loonies)  lived on the other side.

Centuries later, no one remembered the true origin of how they all came to be there. The only record left behind by the shrinks was an indeciperable book called Gideons Bible (a reference to the Beatles song, Rocky Raccoon) .  Rocket Raccoon was the principle lawman (or lawraccoon) of Halfworld protecting the loonies from rogue robots and the principal villians, Judson Jakes and Lord Dyvyne (a lizard).

Long story short, Gideon's Bible is decipered revealing not only the origin of halfword but also a cure for the loonies mental illness. Jakes and Dyvyne are killed during an all out war to control the toy industry on Halfworld. The loonies are cured and since they fufilled their obligation to them, the talking animals of Halfworld (including Rocket) leave in the robots massive starship to seek their destiny among the stars. 

Now how Rocket joins the Guardians of the Galaxy is a whole other story and you can read that on Marvel Wiki if you want.   But yeah, there you have it. A primer on everyone's favorite space raccoon.

Nice Toran..  this movie is goin to ROCK!! (no pun intended).. LOL  Marvel is kicking ass, no doubt about that. esp since Ben affleck was cast for batman.. That IMO is a joke.  They shld of just went back and got George Cloney again!!  after that other joke of a movie MOS which i am still pissed about i dont think they should even bother with the Justice League. They already ruined Green Lantern and now there are talks that Dwayne Johnson, The tooth fairy, might be the next Green Lantern???  WOW..SHOOT ME NOW!!!  

the only thing left for Marvel to do is Merge the Avengers with Spidey and XMEN.. GAME OVER.  and they will do it!!  and it will be AWESOME!!
