A brand new fan poster pitches a spinoff series on Disney's streaming service that imagines Rocket Raccoon as an MCU memorabilia seller. Voiced by Bradley Cooper, the cybernetically modified raccoon is one of the original cosmic heroes introduced in James Gunn's Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 1 released in 2014. Since then, the character has appeared two more times - Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 (2017) and Avengers: Infinity War (2018) and is expected to return in next year's Avengers 4 and Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3.
Known for his sarcastic remarks and cocky attitude, Rocket was originally a bounty hunter partnered up with tree-like humanoid Groot before joining the Guardians of the Galaxy. In Infinity War, he and Groot, accompanied Thor to Nidavellir to create the Stormbreaker, a powerful new weapon that can kill Thanos. Following the Mad Titan successfully executing galactic genocide, Rocket is one of the fortunate MCU heroes who was spared from the snap. With most of his teammates gone, it's curious what role he'll play in Avengers 4. In the meantime, one amusing fan-poster imagines what his next career could be in case he decides he's done saving the galaxy.
Coming from digital artist BossLogic is a poster proposing a Rocket Raccoon spinoff series after it was announced that Marvel Studios is developing several offshoot shows centering on MCU characters, starting with Loki and Scarlet Witch. Taking Rocket's penchant for collecting random things into consideration, the illustration imagines the character setting up his own memorabilia shop, selling several MCU items. And while chances of having this idea come into fruition are slim, fans in the comment section are loving the idea. Check the image below:
MCU fans are having a blast examining the fan-poster due to the countless Easter eggs in it. There's the Infinity Gauntlet, complete with all six Infinity Stones, Iron Man's arc reactor and Mark I helmet, Nick Fury's pager, Loki's helmet, Peter Quill's walkman and Bucky's arm (which he expressed his interest in during their meeting in Infinity War) among others. There are also some hilarious references such as a home entertainment copy of Footloose and Captain America's beard encased in a display box.
Kidding aside, Rocket would be a great perfect pick to center a TV series on. He's arguably the most interesting Guardian of the Galaxy and yet his backstory has been barely explored. His intense argument with Yondu in Guardians Vol. 2 made it clear that behind his strong facade is a damaged being. But with Gunn no longer involved with Guardians Vol. 3 and the MCU in general, it's curious whether or not fans will ever get to learn more about the raccoon's life before he joined Quill and became the cosmic hero.
