I’m not sure how I missed it, but James Gunn tweeted a photo of Dave Bautista “getting a facial” (har har) last month.

Obviously, it’s a make-up test. It’s not much, but it’s enough to give me a pretty good idea of what he’ll look like fully made up and I have to say I think it’ll be pretty solid.

Behind the Scenes Set Photo of Rocket Raccoon!

Concept 5

Well, sort of. Last week, director James Gunn, who previously mentioned studying live raccoons for the Guardians of the Galaxy, tweeted a photo of himself with a little furry friend:

Awwwww. What a cute little guy.

So, even though there’s been no official casting news for the voice of Rocket, I’m really glad to see they’re trying to go for a more realistic-looking raccoon, as opposed to some goofy, cartoony raccoon. I’m sure I’ve mentioned that before. I just can’t help but feel giddy looking at James Gunn playing with a little raccoon.

Guardians of the Galaxy #1 Variant Cover by Adi Granov!

Friday, Guardians of the Galaxy scribe Brian Michael Bendis tweeted a variant cover for Guardians of the Galaxy #1:

It’s more or less the same as what we’ve been seeing from the current artists behind the new series, but I like it. Glad to see Rocket Raccoon front and center. It’s still weird to me that Iron Man is a Guardian.
