Ever since his debut in Guardians of the Galaxy, Marvel fans have come to learn that Rocket Raccoon (Bradley Cooper) has a serious habit of taking prosthetic body parts from people he comes across, mainly because he thinks it’s funny to see people ending up without their eyes or their legs.  

In Avengers: Infinity War, Rocket was at it again, noticing Bucky Barne’s(Sebastian Stan) metallic arm and offering to buy it from the Winter Soldier. Of course Bucky said no, but somehow Rocket still managed to steal a part of the hero’s outfit after the Winter Soldier was turned into dust along with half of the living population of the universe.

Marvel dropped a new trailer for Avengers: Endgame on Thursday, and while the video mostly focuses on the original six Avengers, we get to see a scene where Rocket is riding on the shoulders of War Machine (Don Cheadle), his gun in hand, ready to head out to battle.

Though the scene doesn’t seem that unusual for Rocket (he’d also ride on the shoulders of Vin Diesel’s Groot before), fans have spotted an addition to the Guardian of the Galaxy’s new costume – Bucky’s goggles.  In the footage, Rocket is wearing the same goggles that Bucky Wore back in Captain America: The Winter Soldier.

Right now we’re not quite sure how in the world Rocket managed to snatch Bucky’s goggles before Endgame. Maybe everyone’s favorite triangle-faced monkey decided to go through the Avenger’s warehouse before heading out into battle and found the goggles there. Maybe someone gave it to him. Let’s wait and see.

Avengers: Endgame premieres April 26m 2019.
