Guardians Of The Galaxy Photos Reveal The True Face Behind Rocket Raccoon

Given their long shared filmography, it's pretty clear that there exists little sibling rivalry between director James Gunn and his brother actor Sean Gunn. Practically everything the former has done has involved the latter, and Guardians of the Galaxy is no different. As you see in the photo above, James Gunn carved out a special little role for his younger brother in the upcoming Marvel Studios blockbuster. But that was far from Sean's only action on the set.

To explain fully what that means, I'll let James Gunn's caption on Instagram do the talking:

#gotgpicoftheday 1st ever photo of @thejudgegunn as Kraglin, Yondu's First Mate in the Ravagers. Sean served double duty on set as the onset Rocket as well as Kraglin, so he worked the most days of any actor after Chris Pratt.

Cool as this sounds, the even better news is that we now have some photographic evidence. Empire has gotten their hands on a few new stills and behind the scenes photos from Guardians of the Galaxy, one of which is set in a pile of rubble and features James Gunn talking to his brother, who is wearing a green spandex costume for his role as Rocket:

But that's not all the new gallery has to offer. Next up we have what is really our best look yet of Lee Pace as Ronan The Accuser - a.k.a. the big bad of Guardians of the Galaxy. For those unfamiliar with the comics, he is a member of the alien race known as the Kree, and he looks absolutely terrifying:

We also have this fun new shot, which features the members of the Guardians of the Galaxy either hiding out or on the attack - it's a bit hard to say. It's worth noting that while we have Star-Lord (Chris Pratt), Gamora (Zoe Saldana) and Drax (Dave Bautista) here, Groot (voiced by Vin Diesel) and Rocket Raccoon (voiced by Bradley Cooper) are nowhere to be seen. I suppose they are probably getting into shenanegans somewhere else in the scene.

Guardians of the Galaxy will be in theaters on August 1st.
