James Gunn rocket raccoon guardians of the galaxy 2

Once again James Gunn has shared fun details about a scene found in ‘Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2.‘ In this one, he was asked by a fan what was up with that repair tool that Rocket Raccoon was using to repair the Milano in the movie. What could be taken as a joke was dissected pretty well and also shattered the hopes of fans who were hoping that it could recreate an iconic scene from the comics. The scene we were hoping for was the one where Tony Stark is working with Rockett to fix his Iron Man armor after it was destroyed.

The initial question came up and was answered right here:



Now, of course, the one thing we all know is that when Rocket comes up with something expensive that he probably didn’t outright buy it. No need to wonder here as this is confirmed by Gunn himself!

As for what actually occurred in the comics which fans were hoping for? Rocket used a Sladon to fix Tony’s armor and gave us a piece of comic history:

It sounds like this is one we shouldn’t be holding our breaths to see recreated. Not that there looks to be much time for it to happen in ‘Avengers: Infinity War’ with everything else which has been jampacked into it.
