Sean Gunn Talks Working With The Russo Brothers On Avengers: Infinity War

Sean Gunn quietly became the secret weapon of the Guardians of the Galaxy universe. When he isn't playing Kraglin, he's the person helping bring Rocket Raccoon to life. He's the one doing all of the motion capture for our favorite foul-mouthed trash panda, and he recently spoke to ComicBook.com about working under the Russo brothers on the set of Avengers: Infinity War.

"All directors have a little bit of a different style, and their own method of working. When you're working with a director, or directors, for the first time, you have to sort of establish that working relationship. I don't need to do that obviously when I work with my brother because we've worked together for so long. The Russos are different, but I can tell you're they're great. I can tell you I love working with them, and I think I also identified with the idea of working with my brother as something that they do all the time, just like my brother and I do. I really enjoyed working with them, but the style's different. No director is like any other exactly."

When it comes to blending all of these casts together, Gunn has nothing but praise for how everything is going:

"Oh, my gosh has it been amazing, and such a big movie, and such an amazing and huge cast. I'm glad though that it's now out there that we get to work with Thor because now I can officially tell interviewers how handsome Chris Hemsworth is up close."

He's not kidding about that, apparently:

"It's really intimidating. It's like I can't even believe he's a real person."

It hasn't been confirmed whether or not Kraglin will make an appearance in Infinity War, but if we see Rocket on screen, it'll be Bradley Cooper giving him a voice and Gunn giving him a body.
