Rocket Raccoon (Bradley Cooper) might have wit as sharp as a sailor's, but it seems like Guardians of the Galaxy director James Gunn wanted the space misfit to use the F-word a whole lot in Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. II.
Gunn just recently participated in ComicBook.com's Quarantine Watch Party and the director's been going on Twitter to reveal some pretty exciting secrets about the second Guardians of the Galaxy movie.
Answering fans questions on the social media site, Gunn inadvertently revealed his original plans for Rocket Raccoon – to have the Guardian of the Galaxy curse like a happy sailor.
"I do have footage of Rocket flying away with Baby Groot, after saying, 'He said welcome to the frickin' Guardians of the Galaxy... only he didn't say 'frickin'.' And then as he flies away he turns to Baby Groot, irritated, and says, 'We're gonna have to have a serious talk about your language! F-ck this, f-ck that,' everything's 'f-ck f-ck f-ck' all the time!'" Gunn openly revealed in his discussion with fans.
The scene didn't just exist in the film's script. Gunn also shot scenes around the raunchy conversation.
"We even animated it in post viz," the director admitted.
Gunn really wanted to push the envelope with the language of his second Guardians of the Galaxy movie. Unfortunately, it seems like Disney wanted to play it safe, and so the studio forced the director to tone down Rocket's language. The House of Mouse probably didn't want to risk getting an R-rating for Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2.
