A new viral video shows a real-life raccoon attack that is basically just like Guardians of the Galaxy. Marvel fans weren't too sure when it was revealed that Marvel Studios was adapting the Guardians of the Galaxy team. Compared to other superhero characters, the Guardians were a relatively unknown team, with strange characters like a humanoid tree and a talking raccoon.
The members of the Guardians of the Galaxy have changed over the years, but the characters chosen for the live-action adaptation were Star-Lord (Chris Pratt), Gamora (Zoe Saldana), Groot (Vin Diesel), Drax (Dave Bautista), and Rocket Raccoon (Bradley Cooper). These were the main characters of the first two Guardians of the Galaxy films, but also appeared in the massive team-up film Avengers: Infinity War. Unfortunately, the Mad Titan named Thanos wiped out most of the Guardians team, as well as half of all living creatures, leaving Rocket as the sole survivor of the Guardians of the Galaxy team. Now a new viral video shows what Rocket has been up to lately.
A video released on Twitter from todoroquirk shows a real-life raccoon attack which is all too similar to Rocket Raccoon from Guardians of the Galaxy. The video shows a home-owner trying to get a raccoon away from his garbage, which doesn't exactly go to plan. The raccoon is incredibly feisty, much like Rocket, but backs off and seems to run off. That is before the song "Hooked on a Feeling" by Blue Swede drops and the raccoon comes running back to attack the human. The viral video even ends with the Guardians of the Galaxy logo popping up on the screen. The full video can be seen below.
Guardians of the Galaxy was no doubt a gamble for Marvel Studios, but ended up paying off in the end. The first film was seen as a massive success with critics giving Guardians of the Galaxy positive reviews, and the film itself breaking box office records. The sequel, Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2, didn't do as well with critics, but still earned Disney a ton of money. While Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 probably would have made even more money, Disney has run into a massive problem since they fired James Gunn from the project.
While the development of Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 remains a mystery, the members from the Guardians team are expected to return this year in Avengers: Endgame if the Avengers are able to reverse the effects of Thanos' snap. It can't be said for sure what other Guardians will return, but Rocket will obviously be there since he is currently the only surviving Guardians of the Galaxy member. With that in mind, if Rocket brings the level of fury that this real-life raccoon has, he could easily take out Thanos by himself.
